A magnificent product, tremendous piece of industrial design and performance. Musical excellence, coupled with cutting edge techno A magnificent product, tremendous piece of industrial design and performance. Musical excellence, coupled with cutting edge technology, create an incredibly compelling product.
Minimalist, classy, expensive.
Absolutely what you would expect from Bowers & Wilkins - top notch. From the nautilus tweeters, to the class D amplifiers powering each driver, this speaker oozes quality.
Sublime! Detailed throughout the range, well balanced, and delivering the vinyl-esq warmth that is the B&W trademark. The soundstage produced from one box is incredible. The DAC upscales lossy MP3s to deliver a depth that only the most discerning of audiophiles will be pick holes in. In a word, incredible.
Flawless, delivering lossless streams from iPad, iPhone and iMac without issue. One cautionary note, lossless streams require a strong WiFi connection to prevent break in streams from packet loss.
A doddle, the app from B&W is simple and effective.
//A7 or A5?
I have both the A7 and the A5, so can make a real life comparison between the two. The A7 provides a more dynamic range from the seperate sub-woofer, offering greater detail in the low to mid range. The A5 therefore has a 'fresher' feel, with greater reliance on mid range. However, both are incredible, and in a blind test the average consumer would be hard pushed to notice the difference. If you have the money, get the A7, however if you get the A5 you will be more than happy.
This speaker will make you love with music again. Get one without hesitation. …

Powerful and Detailed
I have been a fan of Bowers and Wilkins since I got the MM-1's, so I was interested in listening to the A7 particularly as I'm lim I have been a fan of Bowers and Wilkins since I got the MM-1's, so I was interested in listening to the A7 particularly as I'm limited for space in my flat.
The unit itself is stylish and more importantly sonically packs detail and power, from New Order to the Clash it handles really well. Just be careful where you place it, I have it 2 inches away from the wall and the bass is really tight.
Not cheap, but great piece of hardware. …

Simple and stunning
Setup took less time than unboxing. Easy but naturally, RTFM!
The sound is, for a single box, stunning. To qualify what I say Setup took less time than unboxing. Easy but naturally, RTFM!
The sound is, for a single box, stunning. To qualify what I say, let me tell you that I use an AK120 with an RSA blackbird and an Ultrasone Edition 8 set of cans for my portable setup after years of experimentation with portable sound.
The box can sound a little bass heavy if you position it incorrectly, but overall the trebles are clean and detailed without much discernible sibilance, the mid tones are strong and refined without being domineering. The bass is extended and clean without being boxy.
The SN ratio is excellent across the whole range at all volumes.
I have a rather extreme HiFi setup, but there are times I listen to the music and actually forget it is just the A7 I have put on and not the dual mono block valve amps and the electrostatics. Yes, it is that good if you take some time to position it right.
Solid build quality. Not as uber-stylish as some people reckon (in my opinion) but nice and discrete and easy to forget about until you stream some content through it.
Highly recommended. …

Top Notch sound for an AirPlay Speaker.
Connected to our wifi very easily using the B&W app.
Works faultlessly without any dropouts, sound is excellent and blows away BO Connected to our wifi very easily using the B&W app.
Works faultlessly without any dropouts, sound is excellent and blows away BOSE docking stations I have used before but I guess that should be expected for the price.
We have quite a large house, our wifi setup is Netgear Wifi Router + Range Extender + Time Capsule. This just about covers the whole house.
We have noticed that if you are streaming from an iPhone and you move from one station to the next it can cause dropouts but this is more a limitation of AirPlay/Our Wifi. Not sure if there is someway to improve this.
All in all though very happy. …
