And if anyone has ordered one of these please share your thoughts on it!
I have had mine since April 1st. Not sure if they screwed up and put it out early at Best Buy. So far, I have liked it quite a bit. Sound is good, though lacks a bit of bass, and is a bit quiet for spoken programs. AirPlay has worked almost flawlessly for the music, and was very easy to set up. Switching between docked and wireless requires switching on the main unit, which I would prefer to be more automatic. The artwork display is a bit buggy, often losing the image. Also, it does not switch off automatically when wireless is idle, wasting some power. I suspect the bugs would be easy enough for them to fix with an update, which supposedly it does automatically online. Overall I am very happy, though it may be a bit pricey for the sound quality. I have a Bose 1st generation Sounddock and an Apple Hi-Fi hooked up to an Apple TV, both of which have better sound.
Should read lacks a bit of bass. Darn autofill.
Fixed. You should be able to edit your comments?
Not sure why it says:
“This is the first wireless AirPlay speaker to market, beating the iHome iW1.”
What about the B&W Zeppelin which has been available for a while?
You’re right! Thanks. Post is updated.
What a let down from a good company! Crap sound period…….
I’m disappointed in both this and the Zeppelin. I don’t need a dock, screen, or anything else that is going to drive up the price of the unit – I just want something that sounds good and lets me stream to it over AirPlay.
Does anyone know if you can stream to more than one at the same time. For example, I would like to have one in the living room and a seond unit in a den with both playing from the same source at the same time.
Yes, you can stream to multiple AirPlay devices from iTunes. For example, you could stream to your JBL On Air in your living room and your JBL On Air in the bedroom.
I have to agree with Greg. All I need are some good speakers. And what’s with these ridiculous designs anyway? I don’t want to waste shelf space on zeppelin- or UFO-shaped speakers!
I got two of these JBL Airplay, but i can seem to connect them to my iTunes (PC). I downloaded iTunes 10.3.1.55. But i don’t see the Airplay button on the bottom Right Hand Corner.
The alarm clock is just awful and unreliable…how hard could this be…..Led display can only be dimmed down so far…its seems like a flash light left on on the night stand. Freezes up about one a month, especially switch from listening to music back to off with the just being an alarm clock. I just hate this thing….
