Best Speaker for the money5 Posted by: from: on This has to be one of the best speakers I've owned (besides theatre speakers that are triple the size and having more power). It has a lot of bass and is extremely crisp while they do offer the A7, for a bedroom size application the A5 works perfectly. I have used this in a 3 car garage and it sounds crisp from all distances. If you like a lot of bass from a pretty far distance the A7 is for you but for times you will be near the speaker the A5 bass is fine.

Awesome sound quality and reliable wifi connection5 Posted by: from: on I purchased Bose Soundlink first, and could not stand the hallow sound it produces. Very glad I got the B&W instead. Day and night difference in terms of sound quality.

Most elegant speaker could not exist!5 Posted by: from: on This speaker has a great sound, even if you are in the 2nd floor of your house it sounds clearly and creates a good atmosphere at home. It looks really discrete and elegant at the same time,it is a great value for the price you pay. I just cannot stop playing music on it, and the air play isthe most friendly system I have used until now.

Excellent for the right application4 Posted by: from: Grandview Heights, Ohio on First of all the Bowers and Wilkins web site is beyond less than helpful in giving the full picture of exactly what this powered speaker is capable of and not capable. Thus how can BB be expected to explain it. I gave my brother my Bose soundlink mini which I loved. I wanted to replace it and thought this might be a good start. Well honestly the soundlink mini has just as good sound quality, won't turn up nearly as loud but the soundlink mini is rechargeable and bluetooth and so convenient. Next I think if you had two of these speakers in a room where you never moved them that would suit its capability much more, say like in your kitchen or den in my opinion. Had I known about this a year ago I would have purchased two of these and put them in my kitchen instead of running wire, buying an extra amp and studio speakers for over top my cabinets which sound spectacular. Overall the sound quality is good, is it worth $500 plus tax. No.

Very nice sound for such small speaker box.5 Posted by: from: Chicago on I am using this in my bedroom and the sound quality is amazing. It covers every single space with very clear and nice sound. I will recommend before spending less on something else invest a little bit of more money on this and you won't regret it because is worth every penny. I love it

Good for a single speaker4 Posted by: from: Miami, FL on As above, pretty good for a single speaker. Two speakers would probably sound great.

Great sound5 Posted by: from: NJ on Looks great and sounds better. Easy to link up to your wireless network with the B&W app that you can download for Apple products. A little pricey but no more than a Bose wave unit with the IPOD/IPHONE docking station needed to stream your music.
