  • WOW! Does this sound GOOD!!

For the size of the deck and the size of the speakers it has, the range, quality and volume are all excellent! It is situated in our dining room area and with multiple iPhones and iPads, it is so nice to be able to stick whatever device is handy in the dock and play our music. Also works well with streaming audio from websites.The iHome SetUp app is also convenient and easy to use. We love this unit so much we are considering getting a second one to use as a bedroom clock-radio, since it has dual alarm functions too. First iHome product we have bought, but if this is their quality, it certainly won't be the last!!

    The unit is very nicely engineered. It works as advertised with great sound and a well-thought out controls layout. I would have The unit is very nicely engineered. It works as advertised with great sound and a well-thought out controls layout. I would have rated this a five, but I really had to struggle with the instructions. My sole purpose in buying this device was to use it in the Airplay mode (WiFi) from my MacBook Pro and iPhone 3G (Hey, it works great for what I need it for). Neither iHome nor Apple were very helpful in solving my set up problem. Neither one of them had any information telling you that the newer version of iTunes does NOT have a "remote speakers" option on the "Devices" tab in the "Preferences" menu. Instead, the iW4 shows up on the Airplay icon next to the volume control in the upper left corner of the main iTunes window. Just click the icon and there it is (if you have made sure both the iW4 and Mac are on the same base station. Use Airport Utility to confirm this). The instructions for the phone were for an iPod, not an iPhone. Make sure the phone is connected to the same WiFi as the iW4, then open the Music app. Click the Airplay icon next to the volume control at the bottom of the screen, same as for iTunes.
