Very easy to setup, you just download the free B&W app from the app store, configure the settings and you're up ready to go in less than 2 minutes. Couldn't be easier.

    The sound is great, I found that playing my music at about a third of the maximum volume was perfect, but if you need to, you can really crank up the volume and make some noise.

    It looks great too.

    very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it.

    Like other B & W products this speaker has beautiful clarity. Strings are fantastic. You hardly remember that this is only a $50 Like other B & W products this speaker has beautiful clarity. Strings are fantastic. You hardly remember that this is only a $500 speaker. The build is quality and matches up nicely with apple products detailed finishes. It took me all of 2 minutes to set-up with the handy airplay set-up app. After set-up, my speaker initially cut out a few times but I simply recycled (pulled the plug and restarted) my time capsule (Wifi). Problem solved and after 6 hours of playing; no issues. It also works great with my Zeppelin on multiple speakers airplay mode. If you want a home full of beautiful sound, you can do it very inexpensively with a few of these units.

    I highly recommend this speaker. I can't wait to get my B & W A7 as well.

  • Air Play only?

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    I purchased these at the store's recommendation as external computer speakers. First disappointment is they are only air play and I purchased these at the store's recommendation as external computer speakers. First disappointment is they are only air play and can't connect to the computers audio output. Second disappointment is they are too bassy with no adjustment available. Some albums like Celine Dion are almost unintelligible. I am taking them back. Further there are no manuals.

    I have had this speaker for five months now. It is very simple to set up using the ios app. The speaker does need a 20-30 hour bed I have had this speaker for five months now. It is very simple to set up using the ios app. The speaker does need a 20-30 hour bedding-in period as they were quite muffled when they came out of the box. However, once they settle in they have wonderful clarity, especially in the mid and higher ranges. The A5 doesn't have a sub-woofer, therefore relative to other speakers like the Zeppelin Air (which does) or the Bose Soundlink Air (which doesn't but is quite bass-heavy anyway) they are slightly lacking in the bass frequency range particularly at lower volumes. However, at a higher volume the bass is more prominent and can be increased further by placing the speaker close to a boundary wall or in the corner of a room (about 2 inches from a wall seems to work best). I have tried many Airplay speakers and to be frank they all drop network connections at some point. The A5 is about similar to the Bose Soundlink Air in this regard. I now use my A5 connected to the network by LAN cable and it hasn't dropped off the network in the last 3 months. If you are able to play this speaker at moderate or high volumes you will be get the best opportunity to experience the full clarity of it's soundscape!
