    I use an Airport router and have many gaps in playback via Remote. I have a Phillips AirPlay that has similar but not as frequent.

    Easy Set Up. Very Portable. "Acceptable" Performance.

    • Written by from West Fargo

    I was very excited to get this set up, and setting it up was very fast and easy. Using the App from the App Store was a breeze, and I had it working within 60 seconds.

    It is definitely not audiophile grade, but it definitely gets an A for effort. It fills a bedroom well enough, but I find that there is some slight bass distortion at top volume, and the very occasional housing rattle. I have found that it works best with the "Rock" EQ setting on the iPhone. Avoid Bass Booster - it can't handle it at top volume.

    The packaging was definitely mass-market electronic grade. Whereas for Apple no expense is spared, for iHome, no cost-reductions are missed!

    I think for the price of this unit (currently about two hundred US dollars) it should definitely be a better product. Based on its performance, its build and packaging, etc., it is more like a ninety-nine dollar speaker, not two hundred! But, there aren't alot of AirPlay speakers out there to choose from, and iHome knows it!
