    I don't think there is a better Airplay speaker than the A7 even the Bang & bang Olufsen A8 is hard to compare, although it also sounds fantastic. I don't think Bose products are on the level of B&W or B&O personally.

    On another note I think the quality of Airplay is better than Bluetooth in general but Bluetooth is more widely compatible.

  • Bluetooth is not a good way to listen to music. Airplay is far superior to Bluetooth, for tunes and this speaker will destroy the Bose, in a fight. It uses the WiFi, so make sure nobody is watching internet tv, while you listen to your tunes. Airplay isn't perfect and I sometimes have to switch the speaker off and on again, if I haven't used it for a while. I don't mind this as I love the A7, it is awesome!
