    Great sound poor connection

    • Written by from Aabybro

    The sound of the speaker is very good , the speaker look very good and is easy to set up and connect. I live in a small 50 M2 condo, max 6 m (and a concrete wall) between wifi router and the speaker , connection is 56 - 71% according to the app but unfortunately the connection disappear very frequently which is very annoying. This happen with iPhone 5 and iPad. I keep hoping for an update that will solve the problem but possibly its in the hardware. A shame since Airplay is really great.

    Good sound. AirPlay issues.

    • Written by from Grand Junction

    The form factor is the reason I bought the LIbratone. I was willing to pay a bit extra because it's the only thing that fit my space. The sound quality is decent, even outdoors.

    The AirPlay aspect simply does not work reliably. I have several other AirPlay devices and they are always available to select on the list of devices. Not the Libratone, I have to cycle the power in order to get it to show up on my list of devices. Hopefully they'll fix this someday with a software update.

    Wireless Issues!! READ THIS!!

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    After days of research in looking for the best airplay speaker setup for a small room, I found these units. This is the best rated speakers I could find with great sound quality and design (they look amazing). However, the support structure at Libratone is horrendous. On their website they do not provide a phone number to contact support. They also don't provide detailed specs of their products. When I received my units (I bought 5), I found the packaging and instructions easy to follow. However, once I attempted to connect to my wireless network, the speaker showed and error. I tried three times and finally gave up and emailed support. It took them a week to respond to my initial email. The verdict.....
    "The use of special characters such as #, &, %, or any national characters in your SPEAKER NAME, WIRELESS NETWORK NAME or WIRELESS NETWORK PASSWORD is not supported. If you use these characters please replace them with alphanumeric characters only." Libratone Support.
    As an IT professional, I can tell you, special characters in a password line is a requirement. To find a device that does not support that is unacceptable. To have to wait an entire week to hear back from the support department at a company is unacceptable. While waiting for the reply I did get a chance to setup an un-secured wireless network and test this device. I will say, these speakers sound amazing. The amount of customization to the sound with the iOS app is amazing as well. All in all, these speakers are nice, but with poor support and faulty wireless coding.

    AirPlay Kills This Great Speaker

    • Written by from New York

    Total disappointment as it’s not ready for Airplay from an iPod touch or iPhone 4S; Sporadic connection and rather disappointing performance, to say the least. Once Apple gets a handle on their new AirPlay technology this is the speaker to buy in its class.

    Not Sure What's Going On Here

    • Written by from Lexington

    I was really excited to receive this speaker, and it seemed like a really sleek solution to AirPlay audio. The speaker itself is beautiful. The sound quality leaves nothing to be desired. However, I had a very hard time actually getting it to work properly. First off, I use my iPhone 4S constantly, and while yes, it was an overlook on my part, I was dismayed to learn after many failures that it just wasn't going to work with my iPhone 4S for now. I decided to move on to my iPad 2. This went far more smoothly, however, I had to set up the speaker again, and again. The AirPlay network simply keeps disappearing. After updating the firmware for my router and trying everything else in the troubleshooting and that I know to do, I will be returning this speaker. For the amount of money it costs, I feel that it should work flawlessly, and it seems that many people have been able to get it to do so. However, for some reason, for me, it simply is never going to work. I am very disappointed.
