    Good sound, Wi-Fi connection issues

    • Written by from Long Beach

    I was looking the Libratone Live for a while but couldn't justify spending so much. I was finally able to snag one for half the retail price. Setting it up should have been easy, but it was a nightmare. Even with the latest firmware, you cannot connect Libratone speakers to WiFi networks with characters other than letters and numbers. Our Airport network has an ampersand (&) in the password which I had to change. Of course this affected everything else that connected to the Airport, and I had to reset and restart everything connected to it: 3 Airport base stations being used to extend the network, 2 other Airplay speakers, 2 IP cameras, a hub for the remote control, a doorbell, and all the Macs and iOS devices in the house. All of that trouble simply because Libratone cannot handle special characters in WiFi connection.

    However, once connected, the sound is really good.
