Monitor Audio Airstream S200 Wireless Speaker with Airplay (Charcoal Grey/black) : Excellent over wifi, otherwise medium. Overally good value to price. Excellent – sound quality over wifi connection (unit processes data using its own dsp). In this mode sound quality is really impressive. Good – sound quality over cable connection (tested with unit connected to laptop headphones output through mini-jack) – the definition of particular tones suffers compared to wifi connection. When i connect my hifi headphones to the laptop i hear all the details clearly, so laptop’s dsp is fine. The same music streamed to the speakers over wifi is much clearer than when sent through the cable in analog form. That shortcoming cost the product 1 star. Also, when connected through bluetooth to my sony z the music suffers a lot (worse than cable connection) – but this may be due to ‘not the latest’ bluetooth specs of my mobile (bluetooth 4. 0 with aptx apparently solves the issue).

    • Perfect for apple device users. I was extremely sceptical about buying wireless speakers, especially these 1 unit types. However i was extremely pleased with my decision to buy these. The speaker is deceptively light and compact. I ignored the instructions that came with them and used the pdf you can download from their site. Plug in my iphone, share my wifi, select the speaker via airplay. I was amazed at how easily it worked on my mac, iphone, ipad. My wife also loved the ease of turning the speaker on, selecting it on her device’s airplay and that’s it. I was also pleased i could hook up my old school ipod directly to it to listen to music on that.
      • Very impressed with the sound quality, we are very spoilt by a linn system in our lounge but despite this the s200 unit does not disappoint. It is streets ahead of my similarly priced bose speakers, that drown the music in an over enhanced bass. It was a bit of a fiddle initially to set up the wifi connection and this nearly cost it a star, whether that was the fault of the online manual or my reading of it i am not sure. Now it is set up it is easy to use and airplay from iphone and ipad gives excellent results, particularly when streaming at 320 kbps. Very pleased, thinking of buying another one for the kitchen.

    Very good sound, sometimes takes a while to connect wirelessly.
    • Packs a punch for it’s size. A variety of streaming / playback options, and easy to use. A remote would be great (but this is not a complaint).
