I just got my Libratone Zipp last week and have managed to fall in love with an inanimate object. As an audio engineer/audiophile I've been looking for a good airplay speaker. When AirPlay technology originally surfaced, I was a bit of a skeptic but this purchase has changed my position all together. Though the speaker is a bit costly, the clear balanced-tone Libratone has manged to achieve is enough to sooth those "empty wallet blues." The "PlayDirect" feature is one of my favorite features this product has to offer. Most airplay speakers require a wifi network to enable the airplay capability, and because of PlayDirect, I purchased the Zipp over another. I hope you enjoy this purchase as much as I am enjoying mine right now!
