This is an amazing speaker! I’m shocked at how nice it sounds! Amazing bass, detail and clearity.
I got this speaker because it is Roon Ready. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Setup was very easy also.
Build quality is tops. It’s solid and built like a tank.
For its small size the sound stage is also amazing.
I couldn’t be happier with this speaker and would recommend it to anyone serious about music.
I own two of these little speakers, one in my kitchen and one in my bedroom. I can stream multi-room from the stereo in my living room so I hear the same music when I move from room to room. This speaker is ROON compatible, which is the feature that allows for multi-room playback.
I am very happy with the sound of the speaker, given its price. This speaker was designed by Andrew Jones, a famous speaker designer who has worked at Pioneer and TAD. My understanding is that Andrew designed and built the drivers for this unit in order to get it to sound the way it does, he didn't use off the shelf drivers.
Sounds great. Highly recommended!
This speaker sounds amazing using a wired connection, but the built-in bluetooth or Spotify connection produce a very obvious distortion in the sound that totally ruins the experience. I updated the firmware to the latest levels but that did not fix the problem. Connecting a high-quality bluetooth adapter to the line-in does fix the problem (sound is excellent), but that really shouldn't be necessary for a $500 speaker. Also the iPhone app is garbage but that is only needed for setup so not a big problem. Separation is minimal but that is expected.
The most powerful, and musical wireless speaker I own. As a Roon endpoint it is just phenomenal.
This box is a great sounding Roon-compatible way to enjoy my music collection along with lossless streaming.
The sound quality is outstanding.
Update one year later May 2020 - still a very crummy app. They do not care enough to fix it. Have not changed anything. Speaker sound? I'd buy a forth and maybe two more for family members, but instead, every month I look for a better wifi speaker that works with Roon server.
Just bought my 3rd one to use with my sonicTransporter i7 Roon music server. Love the sound, works well. Android app to setup speaker is still garbage and not-intuitive. I guarantee that I will press a button or two in app that I didn't need to due to lack of prompt at the right time about what to do next. If I recall, you have to pair your phone with bluetooth to it in order to connect your wifi to it. So, if you blow it, you have to re-enter your wifi password again..and again.. because it's not intuitive if it took when it reboots. Once you get it working, works great though. I took off a star due to app still not updated to make setup easier.
