    BeoSetup is a real pain.

    • Written by

    Unlike its claim as "easy 5 steps to install", AirPlay does NOT work. Not even on the cable wired mode. Spent a whole day trying to make it work and got nothing at the end of the day. Duh.

    Good Sound. 5 Years behind industry on networking.

    Found the sound good, but setup was a pain. Non intuitive. And wait for the day you need to reset the device (for whatever reason). The old three fingered reset salute is back, but for some reason the B&O designer decided to place one of the buttons not only recessed, but also within a cavity which once your fingers get in there, you can no longer see the button to press with the suggested paperclip. Face-Palm effort there by the designer.

    Connectivity? I have the Beolit12 sitting not 6 feet from the Apple Airport Express...constant breaks in the sound coming from my desktop iTunes which is hard wired to the same Airport Express. Stop the music for more then a few minutes and the Beolit12 shuts down, which requires several minutes once you hit the power button to restart it.

    Would I recommend this product? Not at half the price. Its a pain.

    Very Disappointed in Product Quality

    • Written by from Downingtown

    The first time I plugged in the cable to charge the battery, the jack in the back of the case became dislodged and now just moves around freely. I plan to return the unit for a refund. I bought this because of the B&O reputation but now I am concerned that there are aspects of this unit's manufacture where they "cheap out". You would think that for the price they would make something this fundamental more robust.
