    Looks great, sounds ok, possibly the worst setup experience ever

    Great looking speaker with average sound (given the cost). The big let downs are the setup experience and the airplay performance. Setup is frustrating, involving jumping between the device's wifi and your home wifi. The iOS app used to set it up is unreliable at detecting the speaker. A headache from beginning to end!

    Airplay performance is poor, with enough gaps in playback to make it annoying. I resorted to buying another airport express then running the audio from that into the speaker, this gets round the playback problems, but I may as well have bought a simple speaker to achieve the same effect.

    The hardware is beautifully engineered, let down by shoddy software engineering, avoid!
