Although it is a little pricey, t I just got my Libratone Zipp last night and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it. Although it is a little pricey, the sound it produces can easily sooth your “Empty Wallet Blues.” I am an audio engineer/audiophile and had been looking for a good portable airplay capable speaker and love the airplay and "PlayDirect" features. When airplay first emerged, I was skeptical of the quality of sound it'd produce, but am a skeptic no more. Also as an audio nerd, I measured the frequency response, and was impressed to find that for the most part it was a pretty flat response (except for the expected boost in the lows). The application they designed for the speaker also allows the user to set the speaker to different preset modes like "Shelf" mode where you can set the speaker to stop playing in its default 360 degree mode. All in all, the speaker has tickled all of my audio nerd fantasies, hi-fi wireless sound quality, sleek and small look with a big sound, and audio controls for the speaker. I would and will purchase more Libratone speakers, and so should you.

    I'd read good reviews of this before buying, but I was still pleasantly surprised by the clear, vibrant sound it produces. Classic I'd read good reviews of this before buying, but I was still pleasantly surprised by the clear, vibrant sound it produces. Classical music and vocal jazz has a wonderfully live sound. It's also got plenty of bass for hip hop and dubstep.

    It's expensive, yes. But for me it is replacing a hifi system with two satellite speakers, a sub woofer and an airport express for streaming, so the cost is comparable. Sure it can't crank up as loud as my old system, but the Zipp is more than loud enough for listening to music in my living room on a daily basis. Maybe not powerful enough for blasting a crowded party, but that's really not the intended use for this speaker.

    The design very pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Very Jonathan Ive. So much nicer than all those black boxes, cables and buttons on my old system.

    The airplay connection is swift and flawless, both in traditional and playdirect mode.

    I took a long time considering which airplay speaker to buy. I was thinking of Bose, B&O and others. After reading the first revie I took a long time considering which airplay speaker to buy. I was thinking of Bose, B&O and others. After reading the first reviews of the Zipp, I tested it in store and decided to buy it and if I wouldn't like it, give it back. But from the first moment on I heard the sound of it in my room I was amazed by the clarity and the decent base. I set it up in less then a minute and it looks awesome. I listen to a lot more music now than I did before, even though I have always been a big music fan. People who come to my place and see it, ask: "What is that?". I turn on the sound and they love it. I love it, too.

    Just got mine in the mail yesterday! Overall I'm impressed

    Cons:

    - When I tipped the speaker on its side, there was a loo Just got mine in the mail yesterday! Overall I'm impressed

    Cons:

    - When I tipped the speaker on its side, there was a loose/detached component inside the speaker that was rattling but I'm not sure what it is (doesn't seem to affect the overall function... so far).
    - Taking into consideration the quality of product materials vs. retail price, the speaker is on the pricey side
    - Airplay took forever to set up for some reasons (the Airplay logo wouldn't show up due to recent iOS 7.1 update)
    - Libratone app requires iOS 6.0 or later

    Pros:

    - Amazing surround sound that will be sure to give you goosebumps :)
    - Portable / wireless
    - Sound can be adjusted according to where you place the speakers (Outdoor, Shelf, Table, or Floor)
