    A Great Sounding & Handsome Little Speaker

    This little speaker has won me over. Last year I purchased a W7 and W9 and found it almost impossible to connect to my WIFI and hold a stable connection, and the play fi app for desktop just didn't work as promised, and I had a windows phone cell phone which didn't have a Def Tech app available and so I reluctantly had to return them. This year all of that has changed. The speaker always impressed me with its sound, but now I have a new internet provider, a new router, and a new android phone and I have to say it works absolutely perfectly now. I have not had one hiccup in the wireless connection, the Def Tech android app gets prompt updates and was extremely easy to set up (just as easy as Sonos if not easier) and it's so easy to set up, I'm confident that anyone could do it with minimal tech expertise. That being said, the app still doesn't have all the functionality that I am looking for in that 'ultimate' user experience, BUT the app has the potential to reach the level of versatility that one competitor, sonos, has achieved, because Def Tech is committed to updating and adding more services as time goes on. I'm a google play Music subscriber ($10 a month works with google cast) but it's not available in the Def Tech app yet, but using the Play Fi app for windows 10 desktop I can stream my google play music app from my browser to the def tech speakers. It's not ideal for ease of use, but it is a great work around in the meantime. Pandora streaming is great and media server streaming is great and easy. If my life wasn't already so entrenched into the google music infrastructure I would switch to DEEZER which is a great app that has the ability to stream loss loss-files. I also have to say that I'm a big fan of the new white finish available on the W7. I'm looking forward to Def Tech bringing a white finish to the W9 so that I can have a full matching set. I highly recommend this product, especially if you have an android based phone.

    Overall Nice Wireless Speaker

    I had an old Denon receiver that finally lost one of its channels, so I decided to purchase a Pioneer receiver and take advantage of the wireless feature. I purchased two of the W7s. I am pleased with the sound. One has a distorted sound when its turned up and the bass is loud. The other one doesn't do that. Their sound is good especially when they are together in the same room. I am using them in different parts of the house and the sound is still good. I tried these on 5G network but since its range is limited they would cut in and out. I programed them both to operate on the 2G frequency and they work wherever I place them in the house. The app is ok, it does what it is suppose to do. Once you get use to it it is easy enough to use. I was able to get these on sale. They are nice but their quality isn't a $399 speaker. I recommended waiting for the sale price. I don't know if I will purchase anymore or wait on the wireless technology to improve. Cheers!

    Great sounding, but temperamental

    I was looking for a single speaker for a sitting room and auditioned Sonos, Bose and the Definitive Technology devices in the $300 range. And the W7 sounded so much better with a deep natural sound. After getting the single speaker, it was only a couple of weeks and I got a second one to create a stereo pair. They sound great and are very discreet sitting as they do on side tables. But, I have had a lot of problems with the speakers disappearing from the app (the app is the only way to send music to the speakers). Definitive's customer support provided some guidance to put the speakers on a 2.4GHz network AND turn off my AUTO channel feature on my router. So far these changes have made the set-up much more reliable. The iOS app only has a limited number of music services, and although the popular ones are included its not possible to route just any audio to the speakers (as you can with bluetooth or AirPlay speakers). And there is no OS X native application (just Windows) and they have no intentions to develop. With all that said, I love the speakers for their sound and how unobtrusive they are.

    Super sound

    I bought this speaker earlier this month after hearing its big brother (W9) at a Magnolia store. I am not an audiophile but I do know enough to tell you that this speaker is incredible for a wireless speaker. I have owned other wireless speakers and returned them for lack of satisfaction but this speaker is so much better. I have heard Sonos at length and this is a better speaker in my opinion for reasons other than just performance. The wireless technology (DTS) needs some work still but the fact that you can interchange these speakers with other wireless products (not just Def Tech) is appealing. I have tried all sorts of sound on these speakers from classical to pop to R&B etc. and it is just terrific. The speaker is pricey but you get what you pay for and I would buy this again in a flash. I want to get the W9 next (you should visit Magnolia and hear it) but this is a time of year for giving so that has to take priority. Happy holidays to all.

    I just added a 3rd W7 Def Tech cube to a whole house setup that includes a W9 and a Studio Soundbar. As wireless systems go, the sound quality is very good and the subwoofer is typical Def Tech solid -- far better IMHO than the Sonos system. Where the system stumbles is the wireless function isn't fully reliable. The system frequently "forgets" speakers that are part of the network or Play Fi dumps its connection in the middle of play. Both are generally easy enough to fix by either closing the app and restarting it or going through the speaker setup process to reconnect the forgotten speaker, but neither of those should be part of the standard operating procedure. Each software and app update makes the performance incrementally better, but it's still not to a point where I would recommend it to a friend. Keep working at it Def Tech and Play Fi...you're getting closer but you're not there yet.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    fantastic investment

    Loved my first one so much, I bought another for a different part of my house. the acoustics are amazing and can easily overpower a small space. The design is minimalist; fits into any decor and takes up negligible space. I bought this product versus denon or sonos because of the ease of use and the ability to play what I wanted without being forced to use what sonos wants me to use. I tried the play-fi app initially and then changed over on my sales guy's recommend to the definitive technology app; I'm not seeing any advantage at this point in using this dedicated app. While pricey, I'm thinking this is still a good investment for top of the line stereo equipment. One major displeasure I have is the inability to control multiple devices at the same time without purchasing an upgraded application. Seriously? At $400 per unit, DT ought to give it away!

    I added a W7 to my Def Tech Micro Studio sound bar in loft area of my house to complete the package. Loft is large, 18'x25' but together they fill house with rich clean sound in perfect sync. You can play one zone or the other or both together, and adjust the volumes individually from your smart phone,tablet or the units themselves. There is no remote or sound settings on the W7 like the micro system has but, it still sounds amazing for its size and I had the Bose (w/ 5 jewel speakers) which lacked the depth and richness when playing music. Pretty easy to add to your wifi and they stay connected well. Software is good and they occasionally update and add features like Amazon prime music awhile ago.

    The Best Home Audio Speaker for Small Spaces/Room

    Let me clear first thing that I have bought this speaker for Best Buy 1 day deal for for only $199. Now for this price, what I have paid, this is the best speaker you can get when it comes to build quality and sound quality for small rooms. I have placed on in bathroom and one in kitchen. The Play-Fi is still not fully backed product and the app is still quirky and buggy from time to time but I have TIDAL and Spotify as 2 my main source for getting all my music but I have also bought 2 Chromecast Audio and plugged in via Optical Cable and that's way I am getting all my other apps like Google Play music and pretty much everything else so with this particular setup for this price I have paid . This is much better sound in comparison to sonos. Now sonos is great too specially the ease of use and the entire ecosystem but for sound quality , I am getting much better value here.
