  • Fantastic for use as AirPlay jambox

    I have been waiting for this product for months as I saw it at CES and thought it would be a good fit for my needs. The setup usin I have been waiting for this product for months as I saw it at CES and thought it would be a good fit for my needs. The setup using an iPhone/iPod was super easy and the QuickStart guide does an adequate job of guiding the user through it. The only potential issue for a lot of people will be the IP address that Philips instructs the user to use as it's commonly used by a number of devices and if they are not turned off (modems, etc.), the setup link will not come up.

    The sound is as to be expected for such a small unit. Not bad at all and light years beyond what was possible a decade ago but still, "there's no replacement for displacement" we always used to say.

    I'm just thrilled to have a rechargeable, portable, Airplayable solution that doesn't look like a dogs breakfast. Bravo Philips for the whole Fidelio line.

    Airplay constantly drops out when playing from iPad 1, iPad 2, and all iPhone's. It will drop several times during one song, extremely frustrating to the point it is unusable for iPad & iPhones which is why this was purchased.
    Very odd behavior considering Airplay works flawlessly from MacPro, iMac and MacBook Pro on same Wifi network as the iPads & iPhones.

    If you stick this really close to the wireless router, it works. Else it will drop constantly and not work for the most part. Need If you stick this really close to the wireless router, it works. Else it will drop constantly and not work for the most part. Needs a firmware update from Philips. I ended up using this with an AirPort Express.

  • Loved it ... for only two years

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    I loved this little guy, but two years into the relationship, the battery died. For $300, I think it should last longer. Now, when I loved this little guy, but two years into the relationship, the battery died. For $300, I think it should last longer. Now, whenever I remove it from the base, it shuts off and won't turn on unless returned to the base for power. Phillips said it's out of warranty, so I'll see if Apple will replace/exchange it for something else. Too bad, I loved this thing!!!
