    Nice basic speaker but due to misinformation at the store, I ended up returning them and purchasing the Sonos One. The One supports more apps and is equipped with Alexa.

    I purchased this item in order to use it wirelessly with my Samsung Dot. Unfortunately it is not compatible to be used with the dot without an audio cord. It seems that this would have been added already. Great speaker though.

    If these speakers included Bluetooth as well as wifi streaming I would have kept them. My wife likes to listen to music on YouTube but can't with these speakers. Exceptional sound but not as useful as Bose or Samsung counterparts.

    Ok but definitely not great

    This unit sounds good until you put it next to a Harman Kardon Onyx speaker then the lack of depth is very apparent. The Onyx has much deeper bass and mids also fills the room with sound much better.

    Didn't work well for us with the Sonos bar. Ambient sound was so little so we returned this product. We don't watch many action movies with back ground sound, so maybe just our preference to use only the sound bar

    Purchased it for my wife loved the idea. Looked at other speakers at same price like the sonos plus got the wifi connector free. She said was too hard to use. Itunes old songs, and other songs stop playing in 20 sec. I returned it

    I wanted a wireless speaker for my dining room that I could connect to my system via Bluetooth. Wasn't aware I could only connect one Bluetooth device at a time to my iPad mini. Brougjt it back.

    Good sound, not great sound. I find the sound to be a bit muddy. The sound on the playbase is noticeably better. The connectivity of the Sonos system and use of app make it worth it.

    Beware the App

    The speaker delivers clear sound and can reach a decent volume, but man is the app a pain. It's constantly freezing my IPhone 7 and uses wifi instead of Bluetooth so it slows down my network considerably.

    I purchased this to use with my Amazon Echo. Unfortunately they cannot be connected. The speakers do not support Bluetooth and do not have a 3.5 mm jack on the back to connect. I returned them.

    Got these things add surround to my Sonos system. I didn’t notice enough difference to warrant the price so I took these back.

    I love the design of this product, and the sound is very good but the lack of streaming capability is a huge drawback. It would be a perfect product if it would have bluetooth for streaming.

    Great speaker sound, awesome to have wifi capabilities; however, ridiculous that you don't have the option to use Bluetooth or headphone jack. Really is limited by only being wifi.

    Not impressed. We purchased this speaker as an add on speaker to stream what is on tv directly in kitchen. It constantly loses its connection and requires the entire system to be reset.

    I love the speaker. The concept. But I just hate how there is no Bluetooth connection option. So if you want to stream something from your phone to the speaker. It will not work.

    This speaker has great sound quality from every angle. I have had some issues with connectivity and music stopping in the middle of a song. If that was fixed, this would be a 5 star rating.

    I bought this because they told me that it was perfect for music and movie theater. In reality it is just a movie theater. It is difficult to play music in this thing.

    We use these for our 1500sq ft restaurant. They sound great but what a struggle to get them to connect. Had to purchase the boost just to get them to see each other.

    I need to learn how to operate better. We bought 5 and sometimes they play in rooms I haven’t designated...this could be a “user” issue.

    Speakers have a good sound. They are a little pricy. Biggest factor is said in summary. Also, prices for other speakers and sound bar are very high.
