Ratings & Reviews
Fantastic for use as AirPlay jambox
I have been waiting for this product for months as I saw it at CES and thought it would be a good fit for my needs. The setup usin I have been waiting for this product for months as I saw it at CES and thought it would be a good fit for my needs. The setup using an iPhone/iPod was super easy and the QuickStart guide does an adequate job of guiding the user through it. The only potential issue for a lot of people will be the IP address that Philips instructs the user to use as it's commonly used by a number of devices and if they are not turned off (modems, etc.), the setup link will not come up.
The sound is as to be expected for such a small unit. Not bad at all and light years beyond what was possible a decade ago but still, "there's no replacement for displacement" we always used to say.
I'm just thrilled to have a rechargeable, portable, Airplayable solution that doesn't look like a dogs breakfast. Bravo Philips for the whole Fidelio line. …

Airplay constantly drops out when playing from iPad 1, iPad 2, and all iPhone's. It will drop several times during one song, extremely frustrating to the point it is unusable for iPad & iPhones which is why this was purchased.
Very odd behavior considering Airplay works flawlessly from MacPro, iMac and MacBook Pro on same Wifi network as the iPads & iPhones. …

I initially liked it because it was more difficult for a guest to plug in their iphone without me realizing it and start playing their music instead of mine. Fell in love with it, when I heard the beautiful sound and power that comes out from this little ring speaker! So clear, so powerful, and double-sided so I can direction the music into two adjacent rooms- FANTASTIC!!!
I have noticed that after a while it will stop playing music, but that's either because a- we ran out the battery on it and needed to plug it in to charge it up, or b- the device sending the music wirelessly has gone into deep sleep mode.
When I connect it with my laptop to play music, it is seamless, when using my iPhone or iPad, I recommend downloading the Philps Sound Dock App, because that will keep the music playing for longer. Don't worry, the app is free to download and use.
Overall FANTASTIC speaker! Everyone that's been to our house and heard it want one for themselves! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! …

Can you airplay simultaneously to multiple speakers from iPhone, or is this only possible through iTunes on an actual computer?

This is not a good "PA" (Public Address) device for several reasons.
The electronic audio world This is not a good "PA" (Public Address) device for several reasons.
The electronic audio world has two common signal levels. Think of it as two radically different "volume" levels. "Mic level" signals come out of microphones. "Line level" signals are used to pass among devices like this. An "Aux in" port expects a line level signal. Plug a microphone into it and it won't be loud enough. It won't be NEARLY loud enough.
You could use a "mic preamp" to bring the signal level up to line level and fix this problem, but then the port is stereo and the mic is probably mono, and this is a 12 watt home stereo device when you really need a 150 watt PA system, like a Mackey SRM 150. PA systems are rugged and are not damaged by occasional feedback that fries home stereo speakers.
You don't need high fidelity, delicate stereo. You need loud, clear, rugged mono. The Mackey takes up to two mic level or line level microphones, (XLR or 1/4" TS or 1/4" TRS -- the three types of plugs PA microphones use) plus RCA stereo input (like a home stereo) line level and gives you knobs to adjust the volume for each of these inputs. It weighs 7 pounds and is slightly smaller than a bowling ball.
Use the Sound Ring for wireless music on your wireless network at home. Use the SRM 150 in your conference room. …
