Nice Device. The same size as the SoundDock II.
Sound Quality- Excellent. (5 Stars). The system definitely fills the room with great sound. The bass levels were crisp and Pros
Sound Quality- Excellent. (5 Stars). The system definitely fills the room with great sound. The bass levels were crisp and mid/lows are very succinct
Setup- (4 Stars). - There are two setup options. Download the programs on your mac and run to setup your system. The Air system must run through your home wireless network. If the unit is far from your router you may have intermittent connection issues.
Connection (4 stars)- Once in a while, like Bluetooth the system drops the device. I had to reconnect, but this has been a rare occurrence. I have listened for hours without any problems.
Cost (3.5 Stars)- Wish it was rechargeable for the price.
Controls (4 Stars)- Since volume and changing songs on the remote have to go through your network there is a one second +/- delay. The same with changing the volume level.
I've had it for a week and love the system. Previously I had a SoundDock II. …

When I tried to download the software onto my mac, it would not accept my network password so downloading was not possible. It would download only when I removed my password, but that would leave my network vulnerable. Maybe i just got a bad unit, either way it's going back for a refund today. …

My main problem was that after stopping the music, the next time I tried to listen to it, no sound would come out, and my music player would stop after 6 seconds. The only way to resume playback was to setup again using cable.
After having done the above around 20 times, I did a factory reset holding the reset button down for 15 seconds, then ran the setup again and did not update, and now it works perfectly. …

Great Sound - Terrible Longevity
Have owned these speakers for awhile. Was always impressed by the quality of the sound, in particular the rich bass. They sound ab Have owned these speakers for awhile. Was always impressed by the quality of the sound, in particular the rich bass. They sound absolutely great when playing jazz, indie, hard rock. Never had any complaints. Unfortunately, in the last two weeks the speakers started dropping off the WiFi network very regularly. They have always had a slight tendency to drop of the network but never as bad as this. Then they just stopped working completely. Completed all of the trouble shooting no luck. Couldn't perform a factory reset as the speakers wouldn't allow it. Then the speakers started showing the "red warning light" which is a bad sign. Could not correct it. Luckily i bought the speakers through the apple store. They have the best customer services i have come across and were very helpful. Sadly though, no more soundlink air for me.
I have given these speakers two star because of the fact that they are unreliable (at least in my experience) and died very quickly. If i was rating based on sound only i would have given them 4.5. They are not as good as the Zeppelin Airs, but then they are nowhere near the price of the Zeppelin Air either. …

Expensive, bass-heavy, great sound.

In our house, we can stream to both simultaneously from our older MacBook Pro, running Maverick OS. The sound seems in sync, which surprised me. If we stream to both Soundlink Airs and our bluetooth Soundlink Mini, the Mini is not in sync with the Airs, but that's to be expected.
I bought the optional batteries for the Air's, and they give quite long play time.
I like that the remotes work so well, both for changing the volume but also to skip to the next/prev tune, or pause playback.
There are two wifi setup methods; the easier is to use the included USB cable and run the BOSE setup app on the MacBook or PC; however, there is a wireless method that is a bit geeky but also works, in case you can't find the USB cable or are traveling.
A nit: the wifi setup requires a network that accepts a password. We took one of these on vacation and the hotel's wifi setup is a more-typical (these days) setup where the wifi network does not use a password, but you have to agree to TOU on a web interface, and the Soundlink can't do that, so we were unable to use it wirelessly at the hotels we stayed; we used the AUX input and a phono cable instead, but then the remote only controls the volume, and of course using it from a mobile device is not as handy.
We stream from our two iPhone 4 phones, as well as a iPad 4th gen, and it never gives us any trouble, except if we plug the old iOS 5.1 phones into a USB charge cable on the MacBook, when syncing iTunes on the phone tends to always stop playback. I can select the play icon and it will continue where it left off, but it's still a nit.
A reviewer here mentioned that the Soundlink's firmware can be updated wirelessly, but I haven't yet found a way to do that; I had to update the firmware on both of ours out of the box, but not since. …

When you click the multiple speakers menu in the lower right, a window pops up with speakers that you can select. The trick is to realize that the window only shows 2 outputs by default.
