Jam Audio 2 – Grouping the speakers could be better i. e

I have the jam symphony set up in the living room and am very pleased with it. The sound quality is superb and it has the power to certainly cope with the room size and doesn’t distort at louder volumes. I was a little wary about the quality of the speaker as it was quite a bit cheaper than others, but it certainly performs well and feels heavy and well built. It had an equaliser that you can control with the app. When connecting to my wifi i needed to un-hide my ssid temporarily so the jam could connect, then it was fine, but for normal broadband uses it should just connect seamlessly. I use the spotify application on the ipad to manage my playlists which lets you select the jam as a device. It responds instantly to changing tracks and even remembers the playlist i was playing when i press play again on the top. I’ve since bought the rhythm model which is slightly smaller which syncs perfectly with the symphony so the same song can be heard around the house.

Experienced initial problems but mainly resolved now. I have unfortunately experienced some major issues with using this speaker, though anyone lucky enough not to encounter the problems i did may find it decent enough. However, i have personally found this speaker very disappointing. First impression out of the box is that it’s a nice size, compact but not too small to impair the sound. To get started you need to plug it in and then download the ‘free app’ from jam. However, it’s not so much free as it is compulsory – there is no way to use this speaker without the app, so if the developer stops supporting it in the future you may well be left with quite an expensive doorstop. Unlike some other speakers in this category, there is no bluetooth support. The first problem i encountered was searching for the app on the store – i tried searching for ‘jam speaker’, ‘jam audio’ and ‘jam music’ but none of these brought up the correct app – using better meta data with appropriate keywords on their app page could resolve this, so i hope they take note. In the end i had to search for ‘jam wifi’ in order to find the app, but after that it was a quick install (just under 50mb in size). Once i had the app installed, i plugged in the speaker and gave it sufficient time to boot up.

Whilst its not of sufficient sound quality that i’d want to use it as my primary sound system, it would make a great portable speaker to use about the house. The volume is fairly decent, the music quality is adequate, and its a smart looking unit. The speaker itself is operated through an app, which is downloadable from itunes, and whilst this might present issues to some, i found it no harder to set up than my sonos system, which also runs through my wifi. The app isn’t quite as refined as the sonos app, but is relatively intuitive. Overall, its fantastic for the money. Here are the specifications for the Jam Audio 2:

  • Enter your model number
    above to make sure this fits.
  • Room-filling, 2.1 stereo sound with immense bass, Dedicated tweeters for true clarity
  • Listen to different music in each room or listen to the same music in every room (Sync Multiple Speakers)
  • Control your music with free JAM app, Stream Spotify, Tidal, TuneIn and more
  • Presets: The speakers pre-sets allow you to save and access your favourite tunes and radio stations from the touch of a button
  • Intercom app: talk through your speakers plus Treble + bass adjustment – Perfect for larger rooms

I wasn’t expecting much but wow… they sounded awesome, we danced into the night. I bought 2 of these for a post carnival house party, they were cheaper than a sonos and from what i could tell could do the same job. I wasn’t expecting much but wow… they sounded awesome, we danced into the night. They took less than 5 mins to set up, the app isn’t great but it does the job. Makes pairing speakers together really easy (you just drag and drop). I will be growing this system in my home over the next few months and years, and i would recommend these.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good speaker but dependent on an app
  • Solid sound from an unobtrusive speaker.
  • Good value and quality product

Now have a total of 4 of these and one of the larger version around the house. You do need the app to get the best functionality but they work well and of good quality.

Stream music throughout your home, with jam audio 2. 1 symphony wireless speakers. You can buy an individual speaker like this one , or wirelessly connect several. You can use this with spotify. There’s a jam app to control it all from your phone or tablet.

Short review:great speaker, slightly ropey conceptlong review:sound wise this is a great speaker, it competes with a bose speaker of similar value without any issues. Punchy bass, good high range, very loud. It can fill a large room with ease. Build quality is also good, it feels like it can take a bit of ruff and tumble without issues (great if you own some kids or have drunk housemates). It looks better than the pictures, but it’s not going to win any design awards. The unit itself is quite big, maybe a foot across by 8′ tall, you’ll need plenty of space to set it up to get the best sound distribution. Now the main downfall is the connection to play music. You connect the unit to your wifi network via an app to download on your phone/tablet (potential security issues here). Then via the app you steam music to the unit where it plays. In reality this is a faff, the app is not amazing and it seems like a lot of work to play music when bluetooth connection speakers are a dime a dozen. The app has internet radio, spotify, tunein and others so you can get quite a large range of music in one place. The speaker does proclaim to have the ability to set up music in any room, so you have several speakers placed around the house and as you move about the music follows you from speaker to speaker (or you set up different music on each one). It’s a good concept, but at the price range i really don’t think many people will take it up. To sum up, it’s a good speaker with great sound, but i’m just not convinced about the execution.

Good value and quality product. Been looking for a multi room speaker system for a while all too expensive this was perfect price and a brilliant speaker i bought 2 lounge and upstairs to try it so pleased with it now going for a third to complete the system. The tone and clarity is really good and product well made it takes minutes to establish.

I was concerned that setup would be difficult given previous reviews but these were unfounded. The setup was easy and complete minutes after it was out of the box. For the price, the sound quality is excellent, albeit better with pop/rock than classical music. The app, despite having poor ratings, is also fine and easy to use. The speaker connected to spotify from tablet/phone/laptop without prompts once on the wifi network.

Lovely sound quality, but some issues. Let me start by saying that this speaker is bigger than it looks and bigger than i anticipated. Straight out of the box it is easy to set up and operate. You need to quickly download the jam audio app and from there it’s incredibly easy to negotiate and operate the speaker from your phone, you just need to connect it to your router by locating it and entering your password. Via your phone you can then play music through spotify and there is an extensive and exhaustive list of radio stations which you can play. The sound quality is extremely impressive, in particular the bass, but i do have a number of issues with this speaker. Firstly, you can’t play any songs that you have stored on your phone through it. Secondly, as far as i can see, you can’t play songs via amazon music or itunes through the wireless connection – and as these are the two sites that i use for music streaming this makes this speaker of little use to me. Finally, there is no bluetooth connectivity.

A excellent unit with one or two niggles. The success of units such as this mainly comes down to three factors: ease of setup, sound quality, and compatibility. If it’s quick and easy to set up, sounds good, and can communicate with a wide variety of services and applications, then it’s a bit of a winner. The jam audio rhythm speaker ticks all three of these boxes, but not without a little bit of googling or know-how. First thing’s first, set-up. This is very easy indeed, and is more or less the only thing the instruction booklet tackles well. It takes you through the process step-by-step, and even though the speaker itself lacks any kind of visual display apart from a blinking light, it makes up for it by actually telling you what it’s doing. You know it’s successfully connected to your wifi because a voice from the speaker tells you. You do need the jam audio app to make it work, and the lack of a windows version of this (for pc and for windows phone) is disappointing, but once you’ve done that, the app is no longer required if you don’t want it to be. You need it primarily in order to provide the speaker with the password to your wifi.

The speaker is sturdy and packaged well. The instructions that come with it are brief however it is quite intuitive to set up and to start using via the app. I have been using it via ios. The ability to steam from any room is handy as is the quick use of volume controls and changing tracks etc. There is a short lag of around a second between any command on the app and the speaker responding. It also has the ability for you to send voice messages through the speaker which can be quite fun. I found it easy to use with streaming apps as well as to play music stored on my device. There was an issue with some tracks that, whilst stored on my phone, were shown as ‘in the cloud’. Only happened on a few tracks so one star affected here.

Big,powerful wireless home speakerjust get to grips with the app, and you’ll be fine. This works really well for me. Nowadays, since my vinyl is no more, all of my music comes from my phone, my laptop or my computer. This good looking big speaker sits nicely in my front room. And i can play music from any of my devices using wifi. It is not portable needing a power socket and being far too big to cart around. But it makes a great start to a full housewide system. When i can afford it, ill get one in each room. Plays my own playlists perfectly, and spotify.

Great product at a good price :). Being a first time user of wifi products i was nervous, i love music but spending this much money was a real considered purchase. After downloading the app and setting up the speakers which was very easy, i had one in my kitchen and one in the lounge i couldn’t believe what i was hearing. The sound was so clear and could be heard from all rooms of my flat without annoying the neighbours. I had friends over at the weekend and wanted some music playing in the back ground that wasn’t going to be too over-powering, so put them both on and then when we went through into the kitchen for dinner it was seamless. They were also very impressed and wanted me to show them the app and all the different platforms you can use it on… which of course i didoverall they are both great and after a lot of deliberation i’m so glad i made the jump. Great product at an affordable price.

I purchased 2 of these speakers recently and wasn’t sure what to expect. . Luckily i am pleasantly surprised. For the money they are are extremely good. The sound is fantastic and great build quality, the only downside is the app is a bit of a disappointment. The app is way off sonos standard and can be a bit clunky, however when using spotify it’s faultless. Really pleased and would highly recommend. Hopefully jam can make some improvements with the app and it will be 5 stars.

I am a spotify premium user and i love this speaker. You have to hear it to believe it, features are really good too. I can save my favourite playlists to the presets so i don’t need to get my phone out to start my music. I thought they might be a little too cheap and tinny but was blown away by the sound quality and how easy they were to set up. Really happy with this purchase. My girlfriend is not a premium spotify user but with airplay on her iphone she can still stream her music directly to the speakers.
