KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker : Nice amount of base

The sound is great for the price, quite a but of bass and mid range is good for this type of small speaker, quite a full sound for a tiny box. Feels nice, and very simple to use/connect as long as you don’t have an iphone4 like me, i use a wire for that but connects with ipad and androids fine. The packaging is completely over the top. Plastic box and taped weird places to cardboard, on a par with printer ink blister packs, why do they do it?.A complete nightmare so if you are thinking of trying it before you give it away as a present, forget it. You will destroy the packaging getting into it and then will have to keep it. So this one is mine now despite wanting to gift it. If they did a redesign on the packaging it would be great, it needs to be more environmentally friendly and customer friendly.

This is actually the 2nd review i’ve wrote with regards to this speaker. I was previously sent a replacement due to very muffled sound after about 7 months of us. Well, now the replacement speaker will not charge at all no matter what wire or plug combination i use. I really expect more of a year’s use out of anything i buy. I treat my things really well also. The sound is great for the price and the feel of the speaker is fantastic. Just a shame it keeps breaking otherwise it would be bargain of the century for the money.

KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker for Smartphones – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • High sound quality from 12 W of power
  • Warm and full bass
  • Sturdy design and universal portable
  • Wireless or wired connection
  • Built-in mic for call-handling

Did my research before ordering and wasn’t disappointed withe product that was delivered. The sound is strong and easily fills any room i can put it in at home. It’s never going to deliver amazing stereo, no single unit ever will, but you cannot go wrong in terms of sound quality from something so small and light. Would i ever buy another, yes.

For the price and size, this is an excellent portable bluetooth speaker. It’s on sale at prices between £35 and £65, so shop around. The solid construction and downward-facing bass port add depth to the sound, and it can also be connected by a supplied short lead to your music source which saves battery at both ends.

Last ages before needing another charge. Good for caravans and bedrooms and can be carried around. Excellent for domestic use but not parties.

KitSound Hive2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker for Smartphones – Black : This speaker packs a hell of a whollop when put into any modestly sized room and can be turned so far enough to entertain a whole garden party if the need arises. Nice amount of base, good warmth to the sound and a really, really long life span on a single charge. Of course there are genres which it can’t handle, such as multi-layered dance tracks and some of the more demanding, complex film scores, but for prog rock, metal and ambient, this is excellent.

It looks beautiful and produces a lot of sound for its size. It would be nice if you could adjust the bass and treble- as it’s a bit heavy on the bass. Great product though i have no problem recommending it.

I own both this wireless speaker and the newer hive evolution. I would not compare them as they are different generations and the evolution wipes the floor with both volume, quality and a deeper bass. However the hive2 is a solid product, a great speaker in it’s own right and definitely for the price worth buying. When in ‘slave mode’ via an aux cable from the other hive it’s volume is not too great and it does not add too much in combination.

This product is absolutely awesome. The sound quality is fantastic and really easy set up. I would highly recommend this fantastic little gismo box.

Great sound and battery life. Ive had it for years and no complaints.

I was very sceptical about the hive 2, as i had been looking at meany other brands to. I’m very glad i chose this model as i didn’t want to spend over £30 but have a good quality product. It sound amazing a is just what i needs for moving it around the house. I would definitely recommend this 100% .

Bought for hubby to take to yard and use in shed. Best gift everso easy to set up and good hardy design. I’ve put one on my santa list for me.

Looked at this in tesco and argos, 50 quid in black. Got the purple one ( daughter/recipient’s favourite colour ) for 30 and it came within 2 days, tracked delivery.

Tried so many bt speakers and this is definitely the best i’ve had so far in terms of sound, it’s loud. Without the distortion and good bass. I’m mad on my toons and play mixes constantly throughout the day. Not that keen on the charging set up. Quite stiff when plugging charger in so not always sure if it’s connected right. But apart from that definitely worth £30 for decent sound.

This really is a great bit of kit () especially considering the cheap price. It’s really solid with a nice smooth texture and quite a weight to it – if certainly feels very well made and seems much more expensive than it is. It’s also really easy to use, pairing is a breeze especially with nfc and unlike some bluetooth devices it just works first time every time. The controls are solid, easy to use and allow skipping of tracks, volulme control, play/pause and also works with a phone call. The aux socket is a welcome addition for devices that don’t have bluetooth, or for quick playback from a friends phone for example. I’ve yet to run the battery down, but i used it for a good 5 or 6 hours and the battery status led has still not gone to red which means it’s less than 30% so the stated playback time of 12 hours seems feasible. Then of course there’s the sound, which lets face it is all you really want to know – for the size it’s by far the best sounding device i’ve heard. It’s quite loud, crystal clear at all volumes and has surprisingly punchy bass along with clear higher notes without sounding tinny or otherwise washed out. It copes well with almost all kinds of music i’ve tried including heavy rock/metal, generic pop and classical, as well as voice and/or youtube type videos. It’s never going to compete with a proper speaker, but it’s easily as good as similar devices that cost 2 or even 3 times as much.

For the price an amazing bit of kit sounds good and looks good. Volume good enough to house work and work from home too. Rubber pads sotp anoooying vibrations.

Brilliant little bit of kit, something so small has no right sounding this good. Battery could last a bit longer but that’s a minor criticism – this is much better than most of the smaller or even mid sized bluetooth speakers.

12 year old bought for himself. He’s absolutely thrilled with it and connects it mostly to his ipad whilst trampolining in the garden.

My son says this speaker is amazing, he takes it everywhere with him, he loves it. My daughter had a beats pill that broke after a month of use and was ‘temperamental’ to say the least. This seems sturdy and built to last.

Bought to use mainly as a shower speaker and generates enough volume to be clearly heard over the shower. Has also been used for an outdoor speaker at a bbq, and provided enough noise to fill the garden without distorting. Easy to pair with my android phone, quickly reconnects when turns on, and battery life has been excellent so far.

We do not have a stereo and was a looking to buy one for a party we were having and we came across this. I use it with amazon music too and it’s used almost daily now in our house or when in the garden. Great price and much cheaper than a stereo too. And like the fact you can control the sound or song from the device it’s self.

I’ve literally used this item every day since i got it, love the sound, love the bass & the bluetooth range is fantastic, delivery was lightning quick too, a day earlier than expected.

KitSound Upstage 2 : Cracking product!

I swiftly received my 2 new kitsound link multiroom adaptors. With use of the all play app that easy to use and can connect multiple link units together. Within moments with only a few clicks i was streaming music from my spotify account in the house and in the garage with full control from my phone. While being able to still make calls and use my phone as normal. All through my home wifi network. Makes great multi-room sound system with perfect sound through any devices. With the capability to connect to the links own wifi connection straight from my device makes this a versatile tool for any music lover that wants to update and old system to connect to smart technology. Would highly recommend this kitsound link to anyone looking to make connection to your home system easier or connection from your pc/laptop. Looking forward to exploring what else this little device can achive.

The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t. Quite limited functionality – i bought it before having echo dot – it worked okay – setup is not overly complex, not very easy either. The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t look well near the speaker. It often struggled with wifi connection. Not bad but for the similar price echo dot offers far wider functionality.

KitSound Upstage 2.1 Soundbar Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System with Allplay and Spotify Connect

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Bluetooth HDMI ARC connectivity
  • 4 dedicated sound modes
  • Wireless subwoofer connectivity
  • Turns any speaker with line in into multi-room
  • Multiple zones and multiple streams possible

Multiple zone tech without having to replace existing equipment. I’ve never really been a fan of sonos because of the limitations it brings in supported devices. The concept however is something i have desired for years, i have many zoned in my house all that i would have liked to have linked. Earlier this year i wired in my kef in ceiling system to a multi zone amp out to a custom garden installation, to which we connect via bluetooth. Where was the link when we installed this??. The saving i would have made by separating the zones would have more than paid for a couple of kitsound links but also would have made connecting more sleek, currently zones are controlled by a mixer built into the wall. Using the link i could have selected the zone on the app by a friendly name with no need for manual adjustment. But enough about that lets review the product at hand. I received two link boxes to hook up my marantz 7009 b&w cm9 system in the lounge and the custom installation at the rear of the house. Unboxingi received two boxes about 15cm x 7, tightly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals.

A 5-star product but deserves only 3 star for this purchase. Setup:the device does what it claims to be. The setup is easy, except that i need to read the manual carefully in order to find out how to connect the device with my router via wps. Once connected and i downloaded the allplay app, the rest is super easy. Sound:the sound is very good even i use the analog output. It is very difficult for me to tell the difference between its analog output versus my usd1,500 streamer output. The device comes with a digital optical output so you can always use an external dac if you want. Why removed 2 stars:it did not look like a new device when i received it.

High quality, very versatile – very impressed. . Having tested these out, i’ve now bought 4 of these ‘links’ and have them up and running in my house. I’ve had a whole house audio system running for over 12 years but the driving component (a pc through a high quality soundcard) is getting decidedly long in the tooth and it was time to change. I’d been tempted a number of times by sonos but the price for the connect units of nearly £300 was prohibitive when considering 4-6 zones. Plus, i didn’t like it that they had dropped their specific controllers in favour of phones/tablet apps. So a couple of things have changed. With fingerprint recognition on the iphone, the speed of unlocking to change a setting or volume is much less of an issue, so i was prepared to go with the flow on that. Reasonable price to experiment with, open standard. They are very easy to configure. I just switched on, connected by tablet to their own network and then followed the prompts to give the box a zone name (e. Kitchen) and then picked the house wireless network and entered the password. I have a nas box that runs a dlna server that provides streaming of all mp3 tracks on the nas but also internet radio. This gets picked up by the link app as ‘network media’ and just work seamlessly. The link boxes are plugged via phono cables to a multi-channel power amp that distributes music to the wired in speakers around the house. The jukebox app then acts as the controller over wifi with music being streamed direct from the nas to the link units.

The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t. Quite limited functionality – i bought it before having echo dot – it worked okay – setup is not overly complex, not very easy either. The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t look well near the speaker. It often struggled with wifi connection. Not bad but for the similar price echo dot offers far wider functionality.

Brilliant piece of kit, had it setup in less than 5 minutes. Really impressed with sound quality from both my ipad and htc phone and real added bonus i was able to play the music stored on my nas drive. Amazed at price for features .Will order another for bedroom hifi.

From pc to any speaker in the house – brill. Awesome piece of kit that allows you to play music from your pc to any speaker in the house that has a 3. Simple to use, easy to connect, and very good value for money, as you don’t have to purchase a whole new bunch of speakers.

I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I have wanted a ‘sonos’ type system in my house for some time but have avoided buying sonos because i just didnt want to be chained into their system. I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I recognised kitsound from the pulse radio i have (still running great) so when i saw that they had come up with this solution it seemed like a good choice. I bought 2 so i could do the lounge and the kitchen. Set up – 9/10set up on this was a flipping dream. I downloaded the app to my phone. Then i powered up the first one, (had to use one of the many usb mains chargers i had lying around as there was not one in the box – i would take half a star off for that but i cant so i’m leaving it at 5 and taking a point off the 10 for set up) i waited a bit for it to boot up then pressed the wps key on it followed by the wps key on my router. By the time i had walked back into the lounge it had a solid white light on it.

This is an amazing piece of kit.  this is an amazing piece of kit. If you are looking for an affordable yet reliable, good sounding streaming system, then this is all you need to look at. Yes sonos and the others are good (leaders even) but this not only keeps up with them, it’s price tag smashing them out of the park.You can set up your whole house with these vs a price of a sonos bridgein order to help anyone looking at this product with interest, i did a bit of a box opening review. Please note i have not polished this other then cut out some boring bits. The rest was all on the fly as i used it and i think it simply shows how simple the set up and play back can be with these units.

Kitsound link is an amazing product. Kitsound link is an amazing product. It is a must have item to continue using your existing hifi and not change sonos.

The product itself is excellent. Easy to set up and a huge sound quality difference from bluetooth. Spotify sounds so much better than it did being sent over xptx. Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

High quality and user friendly wireless link for speakers. This is a fantastic bit of kit. It takes no time at all to get it up and running, with very clear instructions in the manual, and a superfast connection to my router. The jukebox app works very well, and i also installed the radio app, which has a similar user-friendly interface. I also connected through spotify, so can use my speakers through the link for everything i need. The quality is exceptional, and it all works very smoothly. It means that i can now control my bose sounddock from my iphone and don’t need to upgrade it.

A sound piece of kit from kitsound.  as someone who is quite heavily invested in multi-room audio from another manufacturer, i was interested to learn about allplay software as a viable, cross-platform alternative. Competition is a good thing, and as much as i like the kit i currently have, it doesn’t really play well with the existing speaker systems and stereos i have in my home. Or rather it does (with the use of a sonos connect), but whilst that is an excellent piece of kit, it is now old and quite expensive for what it does. So i was interested to learn about the kitsound link as a product which could easily link my existing hifi and speakers to both the music i have on a nas, and also the streaming services i use (spotify being the main one). The cost of the link units is incredible for the functionality they provide, so i was keen to give them a go. My office hifi is not hooked up to any other zone, so the link was an opportunity to be able to easily add multi-room between there and my main hifi room. Hardware and setupthe link units are packaged very well, and upon removing them from their packaging they appear well made and a smart design. They are light in weight, but well finished plastics and could easily be hidden or left on display, depending on your preference. Mine were packaged with usb power adapters and 3. 5mm audio leads, but as i already had these in place with my hi-fi, i simply swapped them in and completed the very simple setup procedure as per the instructions. I must confess to leaping straight in to setup without reading the instructions, and whilst i got something playing very quickly, i later realised that i was in the direct connection mode which hooks up the device (my phone) and link directly, rather than via the network. Realising this wasn’t exactly what i wanted at the time as i was more keen to stream music from my nas, i started again reading the manual to make sure i got it right. After a brief scan of the manual, i used the wps feature of my router and the link to make it’s wireless connection, and it worked perfectly.

Mutli-room audio to rival them all. I’m an avid fan of multi-room audio and have played with a combination of technologies to achieve what i really want. The competition in the last year has ramped up as the other big corporate players have adorned us with their equivalent offerings, which in my opinion are still playing catch up with their unstable apps and flaky reliability. As with all new technologies there will always be glitches and bugs in the beginning so imagine my surprise when my two kitsound links arrived, set up in 10 minutes and not a glitch to speak ofi’ve had this pair for a month now and i love them.They are very small and light which some would say makes them feel cheap but they are essentially a very small device, light and small is actually what i need. Aesthetically very pleasing, finished in a black piano high gloss with an illuminated large power button. I received two boxes that were roughly 15cm x 7cm, neatly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals. 5mm jacks included but i believe this was thrown in as an extra and may not be standard. The back of the unit reveals a mini usb port (power), aux out (3.

Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

I’m glad i found these little boxes. I was considering investing into sonos, but due to having existing high quality hifi systems throughout my house i was looking at four of the sonos connect units at £279 a time, which is a lot to pay to get a digital output from a digital systemthese units do exactly the same job for around a quarter of the price. To be completely fair to sonos, their app is brilliant, but for a 75% saving i was happy to put up with the slightly clunky nature of the allplay jukebox app. I subsequently discovered that the musaic app supports these players, which is a much more user-friendly experience than the jukebox app. I only expect this to improve in time. The packaging the boxes come in is more like something you’d expect to receive an iphone in. My versions came with a usb power supply, plus a usb to mini usb cable and a 3. The unit itself is very well built and has a quality feel to it.

I generally have a pretty poor experience with most electrical items not matching up to expectations. I wasn’t expecting much of this product given the price. Surprised, this is an excellent product at a great price. Easy to setup, no latency on my pretty average internet connection between rooms. Does exactly what it says on the box. Sound quality i can’t fault either. I’ll be buying another couple.

Great for multi-room, but make sure you get at least 2. Anyone who reads my reviews knows that i am all about technology that not only does something that i could never have imagined before that it could ever do, but is also really simple to use. I don’t want to be spending half of my life trying to set up something, and chances are i will just leave it if i spend ages without any luck. That is exactly why i was quite hesitant when it came to this product. I could easily see why someone would want it, but could someone like me actually use it?the packaging of the kitsound link is absolutely gorgeous, and it gives a really enjoyable unboxing experience. I loved the silver and the grey tones all over, something that kitsound has done for a few other products (i think) to highlight that they are really premium. There are tonnes of icons and bubbles and everything, which is great but something that you cannot really get from amazon (check out my photographs for more details). I have to be honest though, and just as i have experienced with other kitsound products, it can be ridiculously difficult to get into them. The actual box wasn’t so bad, but because of the way the tag was fitted, i had to really wrench it to get it off.Make sure that you are happy with potentially destroying part of the packaging to actually get to it.

Does exactly what i hoped it would. Does exactly what i hoped it would. Finds my wifi signal, locks onto it first time and stays there, then takes the output from spotify connect and gives the option of an optical output. Optical option taken by adding in a suitable (fiio) dac with rca red/white outputs. . And hey presto, every song i ever wanted to hear streamed into my late-80’s hifi separates at 320kb/s near-cd quality.

Kitsound link is an amazing product. Kitsound link is an amazing product. It is a must have item to continue using your existing hifi and not change sonos.

The product itself is excellent. Easy to set up and a huge sound quality difference from bluetooth. Spotify sounds so much better than it did being sent over xptx. Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

High quality and user friendly wireless link for speakers. This is a fantastic bit of kit. It takes no time at all to get it up and running, with very clear instructions in the manual, and a superfast connection to my router. The jukebox app works very well, and i also installed the radio app, which has a similar user-friendly interface. I also connected through spotify, so can use my speakers through the link for everything i need. The quality is exceptional, and it all works very smoothly. It means that i can now control my bose sounddock from my iphone and don’t need to upgrade it.

Excellent audio streaming client. A first-rate, stable audio streaming client with more capability than chrome audio at the audiophile end of users. Recommendation to the developer: the component should return to the previous state after a power interruption. In the current firmware, the user has to push the power button to get it running.

Quality at a very low price. I was looking for another kitsound link multiroom audio wireless enabler to add to my network when i cam across this ovation bundle at the price of 62 quid. Given the best price i can find on the enabler alone is over 30 quid that makes it about 30 quid for the sound bar – remarkable value. I have a number of allplay devices – and they sync together to give multi room connectivity – with excellent quality sound – better than the chomecast audio. The soundbar itself is decent – and well worth the the 100 quid plus you would normally pay. It benefits from great connectivity – hdmi, optical, aux and bluetooth. It is quite heavy and shiny black, but it sits well on the rubber feet – and comes with a wall mounting kit. The downside of the wall mount option is that it will limit the effect of the rear bass ports – but that said it puts out a powerfull full range sound – with a stereo music and vitual expanded plus a quiet option which seems to remove all the bottom end. It will be plenty loud enough for most medium to large size rooms. I suspect that the price of these represents the end of line clearance – but at the time of writing there are 4 left in stock.

Mutli-room audio to rival them all. I’m an avid fan of multi-room audio and have played with a combination of technologies to achieve what i really want. The competition in the last year has ramped up as the other big corporate players have adorned us with their equivalent offerings, which in my opinion are still playing catch up with their unstable apps and flaky reliability. As with all new technologies there will always be glitches and bugs in the beginning so imagine my surprise when my two kitsound links arrived, set up in 10 minutes and not a glitch to speak ofi’ve had this pair for a month now and i love them.They are very small and light which some would say makes them feel cheap but they are essentially a very small device, light and small is actually what i need. Aesthetically very pleasing, finished in a black piano high gloss with an illuminated large power button. I received two boxes that were roughly 15cm x 7cm, neatly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals. 5mm jacks included but i believe this was thrown in as an extra and may not be standard. The back of the unit reveals a mini usb port (power), aux out (3.

I generally have a pretty poor experience with most electrical items not matching up to expectations. I wasn’t expecting much of this product given the price. Surprised, this is an excellent product at a great price. Easy to setup, no latency on my pretty average internet connection between rooms. Does exactly what it says on the box. Sound quality i can’t fault either. I’ll be buying another couple.

From pc to any speaker in the house – brill. Awesome piece of kit that allows you to play music from your pc to any speaker in the house that has a 3. Simple to use, easy to connect, and very good value for money, as you don’t have to purchase a whole new bunch of speakers.

High quality, very versatile – very impressed. . Having tested these out, i’ve now bought 4 of these ‘links’ and have them up and running in my house. I’ve had a whole house audio system running for over 12 years but the driving component (a pc through a high quality soundcard) is getting decidedly long in the tooth and it was time to change. I’d been tempted a number of times by sonos but the price for the connect units of nearly £300 was prohibitive when considering 4-6 zones. Plus, i didn’t like it that they had dropped their specific controllers in favour of phones/tablet apps. So a couple of things have changed. With fingerprint recognition on the iphone, the speed of unlocking to change a setting or volume is much less of an issue, so i was prepared to go with the flow on that. Reasonable price to experiment with, open standard. They are very easy to configure. I just switched on, connected by tablet to their own network and then followed the prompts to give the box a zone name (e. Kitchen) and then picked the house wireless network and entered the password. I have a nas box that runs a dlna server that provides streaming of all mp3 tracks on the nas but also internet radio. This gets picked up by the link app as ‘network media’ and just work seamlessly. The link boxes are plugged via phono cables to a multi-channel power amp that distributes music to the wired in speakers around the house. The jukebox app then acts as the controller over wifi with music being streamed direct from the nas to the link units.

I’m glad i found these little boxes. I was considering investing into sonos, but due to having existing high quality hifi systems throughout my house i was looking at four of the sonos connect units at £279 a time, which is a lot to pay to get a digital output from a digital systemthese units do exactly the same job for around a quarter of the price. To be completely fair to sonos, their app is brilliant, but for a 75% saving i was happy to put up with the slightly clunky nature of the allplay jukebox app. I subsequently discovered that the musaic app supports these players, which is a much more user-friendly experience than the jukebox app. I only expect this to improve in time. The packaging the boxes come in is more like something you’d expect to receive an iphone in. My versions came with a usb power supply, plus a usb to mini usb cable and a 3. The unit itself is very well built and has a quality feel to it.

A 5-star product but deserves only 3 star for this purchase. Setup:the device does what it claims to be. The setup is easy, except that i need to read the manual carefully in order to find out how to connect the device with my router via wps. Once connected and i downloaded the allplay app, the rest is super easy. Sound:the sound is very good even i use the analog output. It is very difficult for me to tell the difference between its analog output versus my usd1,500 streamer output. The device comes with a digital optical output so you can always use an external dac if you want. Why removed 2 stars:it did not look like a new device when i received it.

The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t. Quite limited functionality – i bought it before having echo dot – it worked okay – setup is not overly complex, not very easy either. The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t look well near the speaker. It often struggled with wifi connection. Not bad but for the similar price echo dot offers far wider functionality.

The product itself is excellent. Easy to set up and a huge sound quality difference from bluetooth. Spotify sounds so much better than it did being sent over xptx. Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

This is an amazing piece of kit.  this is an amazing piece of kit. If you are looking for an affordable yet reliable, good sounding streaming system, then this is all you need to look at. Yes sonos and the others are good (leaders even) but this not only keeps up with them, it’s price tag smashing them out of the park.You can set up your whole house with these vs a price of a sonos bridgein order to help anyone looking at this product with interest, i did a bit of a box opening review. Please note i have not polished this other then cut out some boring bits. The rest was all on the fly as i used it and i think it simply shows how simple the set up and play back can be with these units.

I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I have wanted a ‘sonos’ type system in my house for some time but have avoided buying sonos because i just didnt want to be chained into their system. I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I recognised kitsound from the pulse radio i have (still running great) so when i saw that they had come up with this solution it seemed like a good choice. I bought 2 so i could do the lounge and the kitchen. Set up – 9/10set up on this was a flipping dream. I downloaded the app to my phone. Then i powered up the first one, (had to use one of the many usb mains chargers i had lying around as there was not one in the box – i would take half a star off for that but i cant so i’m leaving it at 5 and taking a point off the 10 for set up) i waited a bit for it to boot up then pressed the wps key on it followed by the wps key on my router. By the time i had walked back into the lounge it had a solid white light on it.

Multiple zone tech without having to replace existing equipment. I’ve never really been a fan of sonos because of the limitations it brings in supported devices. The concept however is something i have desired for years, i have many zoned in my house all that i would have liked to have linked. Earlier this year i wired in my kef in ceiling system to a multi zone amp out to a custom garden installation, to which we connect via bluetooth. Where was the link when we installed this??. The saving i would have made by separating the zones would have more than paid for a couple of kitsound links but also would have made connecting more sleek, currently zones are controlled by a mixer built into the wall. Using the link i could have selected the zone on the app by a friendly name with no need for manual adjustment. But enough about that lets review the product at hand. I received two link boxes to hook up my marantz 7009 b&w cm9 system in the lounge and the custom installation at the rear of the house.

I was surprised how much i like these. I’ve had this pair for a month now and i like them more than i thought i would. They are very small and light. Some may say they haven’t got much ‘substance’ to them, but it’s electronics. Being powered by usb is very nice. I have recently installed several socket faces with 2 usb ports and devices like this allow me to plug in 4 devices before needing to resort to extension leads. Their small footprint means they can be tucked into small available spaces. Setup was quite simple, although i did have to change the wifi password encryption type, but that’s no bad thing as i had to make it more secure. Even without the convenient wps button it’s just a case of connecting to the devices wifi, setting up things on the page, then back to your normal wifi. The quality of the music is flawless as far as my average ears can tell, and the app is very responsive. A change of volume, a pause, skip; all are immediately actioned. I haven’t used the two at once as of yet, but with mine placed in the garage and the living room, there will be (warmer) days when projects have me running to and from the garage, and being able to continue listening to my music as i move around will be great. Talking of moving around, when i used to have my phone plugged into my stereo to listen to music i would have to keep going back to it to change track, skip a dud, or queue up something i just thought of. Having the music control in your pocket makes that so much easier.

A sound piece of kit from kitsound.  as someone who is quite heavily invested in multi-room audio from another manufacturer, i was interested to learn about allplay software as a viable, cross-platform alternative. Competition is a good thing, and as much as i like the kit i currently have, it doesn’t really play well with the existing speaker systems and stereos i have in my home. Or rather it does (with the use of a sonos connect), but whilst that is an excellent piece of kit, it is now old and quite expensive for what it does. So i was interested to learn about the kitsound link as a product which could easily link my existing hifi and speakers to both the music i have on a nas, and also the streaming services i use (spotify being the main one). The cost of the link units is incredible for the functionality they provide, so i was keen to give them a go. My office hifi is not hooked up to any other zone, so the link was an opportunity to be able to easily add multi-room between there and my main hifi room. Hardware and setupthe link units are packaged very well, and upon removing them from their packaging they appear well made and a smart design. They are light in weight, but well finished plastics and could easily be hidden or left on display, depending on your preference. Mine were packaged with usb power adapters and 3. 5mm audio leads, but as i already had these in place with my hi-fi, i simply swapped them in and completed the very simple setup procedure as per the instructions. I must confess to leaping straight in to setup without reading the instructions, and whilst i got something playing very quickly, i later realised that i was in the direct connection mode which hooks up the device (my phone) and link directly, rather than via the network. Realising this wasn’t exactly what i wanted at the time as i was more keen to stream music from my nas, i started again reading the manual to make sure i got it right. After a brief scan of the manual, i used the wps feature of my router and the link to make it’s wireless connection, and it worked perfectly.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

High quality, very versatile – very impressed. . Having tested these out, i’ve now bought 4 of these ‘links’ and have them up and running in my house. I’ve had a whole house audio system running for over 12 years but the driving component (a pc through a high quality soundcard) is getting decidedly long in the tooth and it was time to change. I’d been tempted a number of times by sonos but the price for the connect units of nearly £300 was prohibitive when considering 4-6 zones. Plus, i didn’t like it that they had dropped their specific controllers in favour of phones/tablet apps. So a couple of things have changed. With fingerprint recognition on the iphone, the speed of unlocking to change a setting or volume is much less of an issue, so i was prepared to go with the flow on that. Reasonable price to experiment with, open standard. They are very easy to configure. I just switched on, connected by tablet to their own network and then followed the prompts to give the box a zone name (e. Kitchen) and then picked the house wireless network and entered the password. I have a nas box that runs a dlna server that provides streaming of all mp3 tracks on the nas but also internet radio. This gets picked up by the link app as ‘network media’ and just work seamlessly. The link boxes are plugged via phono cables to a multi-channel power amp that distributes music to the wired in speakers around the house. The jukebox app then acts as the controller over wifi with music being streamed direct from the nas to the link units.

I was surprised how much i like these. I’ve had this pair for a month now and i like them more than i thought i would. They are very small and light. Some may say they haven’t got much ‘substance’ to them, but it’s electronics. Being powered by usb is very nice. I have recently installed several socket faces with 2 usb ports and devices like this allow me to plug in 4 devices before needing to resort to extension leads. Their small footprint means they can be tucked into small available spaces. Setup was quite simple, although i did have to change the wifi password encryption type, but that’s no bad thing as i had to make it more secure. Even without the convenient wps button it’s just a case of connecting to the devices wifi, setting up things on the page, then back to your normal wifi. The quality of the music is flawless as far as my average ears can tell, and the app is very responsive. A change of volume, a pause, skip; all are immediately actioned. I haven’t used the two at once as of yet, but with mine placed in the garage and the living room, there will be (warmer) days when projects have me running to and from the garage, and being able to continue listening to my music as i move around will be great. Talking of moving around, when i used to have my phone plugged into my stereo to listen to music i would have to keep going back to it to change track, skip a dud, or queue up something i just thought of. Having the music control in your pocket makes that so much easier.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

A 5-star product but deserves only 3 star for this purchase. Setup:the device does what it claims to be. The setup is easy, except that i need to read the manual carefully in order to find out how to connect the device with my router via wps. Once connected and i downloaded the allplay app, the rest is super easy. Sound:the sound is very good even i use the analog output. It is very difficult for me to tell the difference between its analog output versus my usd1,500 streamer output. The device comes with a digital optical output so you can always use an external dac if you want. Why removed 2 stars:it did not look like a new device when i received it.

KitSound Boom Evolution Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System : Mutli-room audio to rival them all!

This is an amazing piece of kit.  this is an amazing piece of kit. If you are looking for an affordable yet reliable, good sounding streaming system, then this is all you need to look at. Yes sonos and the others are good (leaders even) but this not only keeps up with them, it’s price tag smashing them out of the park.You can set up your whole house with these vs a price of a sonos bridgein order to help anyone looking at this product with interest, i did a bit of a box opening review. Please note i have not polished this other then cut out some boring bits. The rest was all on the fly as i used it and i think it simply shows how simple the set up and play back can be with these units.

I generally have a pretty poor experience with most electrical items not matching up to expectations. I wasn’t expecting much of this product given the price. Surprised, this is an excellent product at a great price. Easy to setup, no latency on my pretty average internet connection between rooms. Does exactly what it says on the box. Sound quality i can’t fault either. I’ll be buying another couple.

KitSound Boom Evolution Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System with Allplay and Spotify Connect – White

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Multiple zones and multiple streams possible
  • Turns any speaker with line-in into multi-room
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Bass and treble controls
  • Intense powerful sound

Quality at a very low price. I was looking for another kitsound link multiroom audio wireless enabler to add to my network when i cam across this ovation bundle at the price of 62 quid. Given the best price i can find on the enabler alone is over 30 quid that makes it about 30 quid for the sound bar – remarkable value. I have a number of allplay devices – and they sync together to give multi room connectivity – with excellent quality sound – better than the chomecast audio. The soundbar itself is decent – and well worth the the 100 quid plus you would normally pay. It benefits from great connectivity – hdmi, optical, aux and bluetooth. It is quite heavy and shiny black, but it sits well on the rubber feet – and comes with a wall mounting kit. The downside of the wall mount option is that it will limit the effect of the rear bass ports – but that said it puts out a powerfull full range sound – with a stereo music and vitual expanded plus a quiet option which seems to remove all the bottom end. It will be plenty loud enough for most medium to large size rooms. I suspect that the price of these represents the end of line clearance – but at the time of writing there are 4 left in stock.

From pc to any speaker in the house – brill. Awesome piece of kit that allows you to play music from your pc to any speaker in the house that has a 3. Simple to use, easy to connect, and very good value for money, as you don’t have to purchase a whole new bunch of speakers.

Great for multi-room, but make sure you get at least 2. Anyone who reads my reviews knows that i am all about technology that not only does something that i could never have imagined before that it could ever do, but is also really simple to use. I don’t want to be spending half of my life trying to set up something, and chances are i will just leave it if i spend ages without any luck. That is exactly why i was quite hesitant when it came to this product. I could easily see why someone would want it, but could someone like me actually use it?the packaging of the kitsound link is absolutely gorgeous, and it gives a really enjoyable unboxing experience. I loved the silver and the grey tones all over, something that kitsound has done for a few other products (i think) to highlight that they are really premium. There are tonnes of icons and bubbles and everything, which is great but something that you cannot really get from amazon (check out my photographs for more details). I have to be honest though, and just as i have experienced with other kitsound products, it can be ridiculously difficult to get into them. The actual box wasn’t so bad, but because of the way the tag was fitted, i had to really wrench it to get it off.Make sure that you are happy with potentially destroying part of the packaging to actually get to it.

Multiple zone tech without having to replace existing equipment. I’ve never really been a fan of sonos because of the limitations it brings in supported devices. The concept however is something i have desired for years, i have many zoned in my house all that i would have liked to have linked. Earlier this year i wired in my kef in ceiling system to a multi zone amp out to a custom garden installation, to which we connect via bluetooth. Where was the link when we installed this??. The saving i would have made by separating the zones would have more than paid for a couple of kitsound links but also would have made connecting more sleek, currently zones are controlled by a mixer built into the wall. Using the link i could have selected the zone on the app by a friendly name with no need for manual adjustment. But enough about that lets review the product at hand. I received two link boxes to hook up my marantz 7009 b&w cm9 system in the lounge and the custom installation at the rear of the house. Unboxingi received two boxes about 15cm x 7, tightly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals.

I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I have wanted a ‘sonos’ type system in my house for some time but have avoided buying sonos because i just didnt want to be chained into their system. I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I recognised kitsound from the pulse radio i have (still running great) so when i saw that they had come up with this solution it seemed like a good choice. I bought 2 so i could do the lounge and the kitchen. Set up – 9/10set up on this was a flipping dream. I downloaded the app to my phone. Then i powered up the first one, (had to use one of the many usb mains chargers i had lying around as there was not one in the box – i would take half a star off for that but i cant so i’m leaving it at 5 and taking a point off the 10 for set up) i waited a bit for it to boot up then pressed the wps key on it followed by the wps key on my router. By the time i had walked back into the lounge it had a solid white light on it.

A sound piece of kit from kitsound.  as someone who is quite heavily invested in multi-room audio from another manufacturer, i was interested to learn about allplay software as a viable, cross-platform alternative. Competition is a good thing, and as much as i like the kit i currently have, it doesn’t really play well with the existing speaker systems and stereos i have in my home. Or rather it does (with the use of a sonos connect), but whilst that is an excellent piece of kit, it is now old and quite expensive for what it does. So i was interested to learn about the kitsound link as a product which could easily link my existing hifi and speakers to both the music i have on a nas, and also the streaming services i use (spotify being the main one). The cost of the link units is incredible for the functionality they provide, so i was keen to give them a go. My office hifi is not hooked up to any other zone, so the link was an opportunity to be able to easily add multi-room between there and my main hifi room. Hardware and setupthe link units are packaged very well, and upon removing them from their packaging they appear well made and a smart design. They are light in weight, but well finished plastics and could easily be hidden or left on display, depending on your preference. Mine were packaged with usb power adapters and 3. 5mm audio leads, but as i already had these in place with my hi-fi, i simply swapped them in and completed the very simple setup procedure as per the instructions. I must confess to leaping straight in to setup without reading the instructions, and whilst i got something playing very quickly, i later realised that i was in the direct connection mode which hooks up the device (my phone) and link directly, rather than via the network. Realising this wasn’t exactly what i wanted at the time as i was more keen to stream music from my nas, i started again reading the manual to make sure i got it right. After a brief scan of the manual, i used the wps feature of my router and the link to make it’s wireless connection, and it worked perfectly.

The product itself is excellent. Easy to set up and a huge sound quality difference from bluetooth. Spotify sounds so much better than it did being sent over xptx. Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

Mutli-room audio to rival them all. I’m an avid fan of multi-room audio and have played with a combination of technologies to achieve what i really want. The competition in the last year has ramped up as the other big corporate players have adorned us with their equivalent offerings, which in my opinion are still playing catch up with their unstable apps and flaky reliability. As with all new technologies there will always be glitches and bugs in the beginning so imagine my surprise when my two kitsound links arrived, set up in 10 minutes and not a glitch to speak ofi’ve had this pair for a month now and i love them.They are very small and light which some would say makes them feel cheap but they are essentially a very small device, light and small is actually what i need. Aesthetically very pleasing, finished in a black piano high gloss with an illuminated large power button. I received two boxes that were roughly 15cm x 7cm, neatly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals. 5mm jacks included but i believe this was thrown in as an extra and may not be standard. The back of the unit reveals a mini usb port (power), aux out (3.

Does exactly what i hoped it would. Does exactly what i hoped it would. Finds my wifi signal, locks onto it first time and stays there, then takes the output from spotify connect and gives the option of an optical output. Optical option taken by adding in a suitable (fiio) dac with rca red/white outputs. . And hey presto, every song i ever wanted to hear streamed into my late-80’s hifi separates at 320kb/s near-cd quality.

I swiftly received my 2 new kitsound link multiroom adaptors. With use of the all play app that easy to use and can connect multiple link units together. Within moments with only a few clicks i was streaming music from my spotify account in the house and in the garage with full control from my phone. While being able to still make calls and use my phone as normal. All through my home wifi network. Makes great multi-room sound system with perfect sound through any devices. With the capability to connect to the links own wifi connection straight from my device makes this a versatile tool for any music lover that wants to update and old system to connect to smart technology. Would highly recommend this kitsound link to anyone looking to make connection to your home system easier or connection from your pc/laptop. Looking forward to exploring what else this little device can achive.

KitSound Unity Soundbase Home Cinema Stereo System and Built-In Subwoofer : Good value for an average no gimmick system

Excellent piece of kit – promptly delivered.

Excellent product, good value for money. Excellent product, good value for money. Looks good, does what it says. Its not very loud at maximum volume but does the job in a small room. Would have rated it 5 starts but it cannot be easily controlled for volume using the quality optical connection and no easy workarounds if using via skybox remote.

KitSound Unity Soundbase Home Cinema Stereo System and Built-In Subwoofer with Bluetooth Connectivity for All TV’s (Samsung/Panasonic/LG/Sony/Phillips) – Black

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Wired and wireless connection
  • Touchscreen track controls
  • 100 Watts of powerful sound with built-in subwoofer
  • Tempered glass top can withstand up to 50 kg
  • Multi-connectivity: coaxial, optical, RCA

This is a great speaker for the money i paid. Has the quality of systems a lot higher in price. Vs, no matter how much you pay, £100 or £1000 the speakers just do not cut it. Looks fantastic too and people don’t believe how much i paid for it.

Great sound quality for a medium sized room, arrived in good time, easy set-up including wall-mounting.

Good value for an average no gimmick system. Arrived before specified date which was great, just in time for present. Sounds great with movie mode and music mode. At the moment using it via aux but going to order hdmi to hdmi cable as we need an extra one.

KitSound Unity Soundbase Home Cinema Stereo System and Built-In Subwoofer with Bluetooth Connectivity for All TV’s (Samsung/Panasonic/LG/Sony/Phillips) – Black : Definitely worth considering a great purchase . Audio in video was recorded at the time of recording on camera using zoom h4n. This soundbar is not only one that looks great but it’s also modern and stylish making it ideal as a centerpiece in my multimedia outfit. The audio this soundbar produces is what i can only describe as “full” with great dynamic range and base. It has the volume output and full body most of us are looking for when playing back movies especially but also music. I’m using it with a 27″ screen however it’s more the size of a 32″ plus. The finish on it is great with a dark grey lattice grill and chrome silver trim to sides and rear edge. The current mode that you are in is displayed on the front in blue led lights making it easy to adjust to your desired mode with the included remote control. Audio modes include audio input, optical (which i’m using for apple tv) coaxial, and bluetooth. There is also a usb connection to the rear.

Lovely product,recommend highly.

Wirelss subwoofer is very handy for positioning.

Bluetooth connection lets it down. . Excellent soundbar for the price. Very nice sound especially with music from my phone when connected via bluetooth. The only issue is, and the reason i gave it four stars instead of five is that once you turn the bluetooth off, when you want to connect again via bluetooth you have to go through the whole process of re-pairing your device to the soundbar which in my case means deleting the already paired chorus soundbar from the phone and letting the phone rediscover the soundbar, and pairing it again, which is a real drag.

Particularly impressed with the wide range of connection options.

Wirelss subwoofer is very handy for positioning.

Sleek looking, great sounding, all in one home cinema system.  hello amazon shoppers, i wanted to enhance the sound on my television in time for the euro’s as i do like that ‘big game’ atmosphere. I have a couple of kitsound products (headphones and portable speakers) and i am very happy with those so i was delighted when i found that they also do soundbars/soundbases. I decided on getting the unity as it is a good looking product and it comes all as one piece (so i don’t have to find somewhere to put a subwoofer). The unity comes in a nicely decorated cardboard box, inside the unity is held firmly in place by styrofoam and the tempered glass top is protected with some plastic film. Inside the box you have a little plastic wallet which contains the manual, power cables (uk and eu), aux cable and optical cable as well as the remote control. As the product is so slim (only 7. 6 cm), it fits perfectly in my tv stand with extra room to put something on top of it. The product is able to withstand a weight of 50 kg,so i’m thinking either my dvd player or ps4 can go on top of it, or even both. I will have to see what looks nicer.

This is far better sound than my expensive curved screen tv. I set mine up using the bluetooth setting on the tv. Select bluetooth on the remote and it connected within 10 sec. Has all the connections you require, optical, hdmi and aux. The remote covers all these and has treble, base additional settings. Plus music, movie and night setting, which takes out the base out. The soundbar is suitable a small to large sized room. Excellent price, very pleased. I have had to re rate this soundbar from 5* to 3* . Due to it breaking within 3 weeks but customer service we quick to offer replacement or my money back. I have gone for the replacement as it is very good, when working. Only on the condition that i can return it if it happens again.Will give a further review in the future.

But happy enough, dead easy to set up and not. Improved the tinny sound from my 50 inch l. V, its ok for the money wasen t blown away tho.But happy enough , dead easy to set up and not wide as your room. Like some on the market fits neatly on my glass tv stand.

This is a great speaker for the money i paid. Has the quality of systems a lot higher in price. Vs, no matter how much you pay, £100 or £1000 the speakers just do not cut it. Looks fantastic too and people don’t believe how much i paid for it.

The unity comes in a nicely decorated cardboard box, inside the unity is held firmly in place by styrofoam and the tempered glass top is protected with some plastic film. Inside the box you have a little plastic wallet which contains the manual, power cables (uk and eu), aux cable and optical cable as well as the remote control. As the product is so slim (only 7. 6 cm), it fits perfectly in my tv stand with extra room to put something on top of it. The product is able to withstand a weight of 50 kg,so i’m thinking either my dvd player or ps4 can go on top of it, or even both. I will have to see what looks nicer.

KitSound Cayman tooth Speaker Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System – Move over Sonos!

Great for multi-room, but make sure you get at least 2. Anyone who reads my reviews knows that i am all about technology that not only does something that i could never have imagined before that it could ever do, but is also really simple to use. I don’t want to be spending half of my life trying to set up something, and chances are i will just leave it if i spend ages without any luck. That is exactly why i was quite hesitant when it came to this product. I could easily see why someone would want it, but could someone like me actually use it?the packaging of the kitsound link is absolutely gorgeous, and it gives a really enjoyable unboxing experience. I loved the silver and the grey tones all over, something that kitsound has done for a few other products (i think) to highlight that they are really premium. There are tonnes of icons and bubbles and everything, which is great but something that you cannot really get from amazon (check out my photographs for more details). I have to be honest though, and just as i have experienced with other kitsound products, it can be ridiculously difficult to get into them. The actual box wasn’t so bad, but because of the way the tag was fitted, i had to really wrench it to get it off.Make sure that you are happy with potentially destroying part of the packaging to actually get to it.

I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I have wanted a ‘sonos’ type system in my house for some time but have avoided buying sonos because i just didnt want to be chained into their system. I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I recognised kitsound from the pulse radio i have (still running great) so when i saw that they had come up with this solution it seemed like a good choice. I bought 2 so i could do the lounge and the kitchen. Set up – 9/10set up on this was a flipping dream. I downloaded the app to my phone. Then i powered up the first one, (had to use one of the many usb mains chargers i had lying around as there was not one in the box – i would take half a star off for that but i cant so i’m leaving it at 5 and taking a point off the 10 for set up) i waited a bit for it to boot up then pressed the wps key on it followed by the wps key on my router. By the time i had walked back into the lounge it had a solid white light on it.

High quality, very versatile – very impressed. . Having tested these out, i’ve now bought 4 of these ‘links’ and have them up and running in my house. I’ve had a whole house audio system running for over 12 years but the driving component (a pc through a high quality soundcard) is getting decidedly long in the tooth and it was time to change. I’d been tempted a number of times by sonos but the price for the connect units of nearly £300 was prohibitive when considering 4-6 zones. Plus, i didn’t like it that they had dropped their specific controllers in favour of phones/tablet apps. So a couple of things have changed. With fingerprint recognition on the iphone, the speed of unlocking to change a setting or volume is much less of an issue, so i was prepared to go with the flow on that. Reasonable price to experiment with, open standard. They are very easy to configure. I just switched on, connected by tablet to their own network and then followed the prompts to give the box a zone name (e. Kitchen) and then picked the house wireless network and entered the password. I have a nas box that runs a dlna server that provides streaming of all mp3 tracks on the nas but also internet radio. This gets picked up by the link app as ‘network media’ and just work seamlessly. The link boxes are plugged via phono cables to a multi-channel power amp that distributes music to the wired in speakers around the house. The jukebox app then acts as the controller over wifi with music being streamed direct from the nas to the link units. Here are the specifications for the KitSound Cayman tooth Speaker Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • 50 watts of outstanding British-engineered audio
  • NFC one-touch pairing makes for super-quick connection
  • Switch to suit your preferences with the two sound modes
  • Turns any speaker with line in into multi-room
  • Multiple zones and multiple streams possible

Excellent audio streaming client. A first-rate, stable audio streaming client with more capability than chrome audio at the audiophile end of users. Recommendation to the developer: the component should return to the previous state after a power interruption. In the current firmware, the user has to push the power button to get it running.

  • A sound piece of kit from KitSound!

The product itself is excellent. Easy to set up and a huge sound quality difference from bluetooth. Spotify sounds so much better than it did being sent over xptx. Unfortunately i purchased a pack of two units from amazon but the box only contained one. Trying to get the other one sent out felt like groundhog day when speaking with amazon’s customer service representative over their chat app. Great device, not great amazon.

From pc to any speaker in the house – brill. Awesome piece of kit that allows you to play music from your pc to any speaker in the house that has a 3. Simple to use, easy to connect, and very good value for money, as you don’t have to purchase a whole new bunch of speakers.

Multiple zone tech without having to replace existing equipment. I’ve never really been a fan of sonos because of the limitations it brings in supported devices. The concept however is something i have desired for years, i have many zoned in my house all that i would have liked to have linked. Earlier this year i wired in my kef in ceiling system to a multi zone amp out to a custom garden installation, to which we connect via bluetooth. Where was the link when we installed this??. The saving i would have made by separating the zones would have more than paid for a couple of kitsound links but also would have made connecting more sleek, currently zones are controlled by a mixer built into the wall. Using the link i could have selected the zone on the app by a friendly name with no need for manual adjustment. But enough about that lets review the product at hand. I received two link boxes to hook up my marantz 7009 b&w cm9 system in the lounge and the custom installation at the rear of the house. Unboxingi received two boxes about 15cm x 7, tightly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals.

I’m glad i found these little boxes. I was considering investing into sonos, but due to having existing high quality hifi systems throughout my house i was looking at four of the sonos connect units at £279 a time, which is a lot to pay to get a digital output from a digital systemthese units do exactly the same job for around a quarter of the price. To be completely fair to sonos, their app is brilliant, but for a 75% saving i was happy to put up with the slightly clunky nature of the allplay jukebox app. I subsequently discovered that the musaic app supports these players, which is a much more user-friendly experience than the jukebox app. I only expect this to improve in time. The packaging the boxes come in is more like something you’d expect to receive an iphone in. My versions came with a usb power supply, plus a usb to mini usb cable and a 3. The unit itself is very well built and has a quality feel to it.

The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t. Quite limited functionality – i bought it before having echo dot – it worked okay – setup is not overly complex, not very easy either. The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t look well near the speaker. It often struggled with wifi connection. Not bad but for the similar price echo dot offers far wider functionality.

A 5-star product but deserves only 3 star for this purchase. Setup:the device does what it claims to be. The setup is easy, except that i need to read the manual carefully in order to find out how to connect the device with my router via wps. Once connected and i downloaded the allplay app, the rest is super easy. Sound:the sound is very good even i use the analog output. It is very difficult for me to tell the difference between its analog output versus my usd1,500 streamer output. The device comes with a digital optical output so you can always use an external dac if you want. Why removed 2 stars:it did not look like a new device when i received it.

High quality and user friendly wireless link for speakers. This is a fantastic bit of kit. It takes no time at all to get it up and running, with very clear instructions in the manual, and a superfast connection to my router. The jukebox app works very well, and i also installed the radio app, which has a similar user-friendly interface. I also connected through spotify, so can use my speakers through the link for everything i need. The quality is exceptional, and it all works very smoothly. It means that i can now control my bose sounddock from my iphone and don’t need to upgrade it.

Brilliant piece of kit, had it setup in less than 5 minutes. Really impressed with sound quality from both my ipad and htc phone and real added bonus i was able to play the music stored on my nas drive. Amazed at price for features .Will order another for bedroom hifi.

Mutli-room audio to rival them all. I’m an avid fan of multi-room audio and have played with a combination of technologies to achieve what i really want. The competition in the last year has ramped up as the other big corporate players have adorned us with their equivalent offerings, which in my opinion are still playing catch up with their unstable apps and flaky reliability. As with all new technologies there will always be glitches and bugs in the beginning so imagine my surprise when my two kitsound links arrived, set up in 10 minutes and not a glitch to speak ofi’ve had this pair for a month now and i love them.They are very small and light which some would say makes them feel cheap but they are essentially a very small device, light and small is actually what i need. Aesthetically very pleasing, finished in a black piano high gloss with an illuminated large power button. I received two boxes that were roughly 15cm x 7cm, neatly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals. 5mm jacks included but i believe this was thrown in as an extra and may not be standard. The back of the unit reveals a mini usb port (power), aux out (3.

Does exactly what i hoped it would. Does exactly what i hoped it would. Finds my wifi signal, locks onto it first time and stays there, then takes the output from spotify connect and gives the option of an optical output. Optical option taken by adding in a suitable (fiio) dac with rca red/white outputs. . And hey presto, every song i ever wanted to hear streamed into my late-80’s hifi separates at 320kb/s near-cd quality.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

I was surprised how much i like these. I’ve had this pair for a month now and i like them more than i thought i would. They are very small and light. Some may say they haven’t got much “substance” to them, but it’s electronics. Being powered by usb is very nice. I have recently installed several socket faces with 2 usb ports and devices like this allow me to plug in 4 devices before needing to resort to extension leads. Their small footprint means they can be tucked into small available spaces. Setup was quite simple, although i did have to change the wifi password encryption type, but that’s no bad thing as i had to make it more secure. Even without the convenient wps button it’s just a case of connecting to the devices wifi, setting up things on the page, then back to your normal wifi. The quality of the music is flawless as far as my average ears can tell, and the app is very responsive. A change of volume, a pause, skip; all are immediately actioned. I haven’t used the two at once as of yet, but with mine placed in the garage and the living room, there will be (warmer) days when projects have me running to and from the garage, and being able to continue listening to my music as i move around will be great. Talking of moving around, when i used to have my phone plugged into my stereo to listen to music i would have to keep going back to it to change track, skip a dud, or queue up something i just thought of. Having the music control in your pocket makes that so much easier.

Quality at a very low price. I was looking for another kitsound link multiroom audio wireless enabler to add to my network when i cam across this ovation bundle at the price of 62 quid. Given the best price i can find on the enabler alone is over 30 quid that makes it about 30 quid for the sound bar – remarkable value. I have a number of allplay devices – and they sync together to give multi room connectivity – with excellent quality sound – better than the chomecast audio. The soundbar itself is decent – and well worth the the 100 quid plus you would normally pay. It benefits from great connectivity – hdmi, optical, aux and bluetooth. It is quite heavy and shiny black, but it sits well on the rubber feet – and comes with a wall mounting kit. The downside of the wall mount option is that it will limit the effect of the rear bass ports – but that said it puts out a powerfull full range sound – with a stereo music and vitual expanded plus a quiet option which seems to remove all the bottom end. It will be plenty loud enough for most medium to large size rooms. I suspect that the price of these represents the end of line clearance – but at the time of writing there are 4 left in stock.

A sound piece of kit from kitsound.  as someone who is quite heavily invested in multi-room audio from another manufacturer, i was interested to learn about allplay software as a viable, cross-platform alternative. Competition is a good thing, and as much as i like the kit i currently have, it doesn’t really play well with the existing speaker systems and stereos i have in my home. Or rather it does (with the use of a sonos connect), but whilst that is an excellent piece of kit, it is now old and quite expensive for what it does. So i was interested to learn about the kitsound link as a product which could easily link my existing hifi and speakers to both the music i have on a nas, and also the streaming services i use (spotify being the main one). The cost of the link units is incredible for the functionality they provide, so i was keen to give them a go. My office hifi is not hooked up to any other zone, so the link was an opportunity to be able to easily add multi-room between there and my main hifi room. Hardware and setupthe link units are packaged very well, and upon removing them from their packaging they appear well made and a smart design. They are light in weight, but well finished plastics and could easily be hidden or left on display, depending on your preference. Mine were packaged with usb power adapters and 3. 5mm audio leads, but as i already had these in place with my hi-fi, i simply swapped them in and completed the very simple setup procedure as per the instructions. I must confess to leaping straight in to setup without reading the instructions, and whilst i got something playing very quickly, i later realised that i was in the direct connection mode which hooks up the device (my phone) and link directly, rather than via the network. Realising this wasn’t exactly what i wanted at the time as i was more keen to stream music from my nas, i started again reading the manual to make sure i got it right. After a brief scan of the manual, i used the wps feature of my router and the link to make it’s wireless connection, and it worked perfectly.

The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t. Quite limited functionality – i bought it before having echo dot – it worked okay – setup is not overly complex, not very easy either. The device uses cheap plastic and doesn’t look well near the speaker. It often struggled with wifi connection. Not bad but for the similar price echo dot offers far wider functionality.

It will be plenty loud enough for most medium to large size rooms. I suspect that the price of these represents the end of line clearance – but at the time of writing there are 4 left in stock.

Just a perfect bit of hardware. The allplay apps (not made by kitsound) could be better, but the spotify connect integration works perfectly. Really impressed, thank you.

KitSound Stadium 60 Slim Soundbar and Subwoofer System, Nice looking,good sound.

Excellent piece of kit – promptly delivered.

Great bass for a slimline soundbar. . I wanted a soundbar to enhance my samsung smart tv speakers and declutter the room from the 5 speakers of the home cinema. It recognised straight away the tv and dvd player and i could connect easy my asus nexus 7 tablet via bluetooth. Great bass and treble adjustment and to be fair even its 60w power can fill the room nicely especially when listening to kerrang or spotify at high volume. Hdmi, aux, bluethooth and optical – perfect combination. Very pleased with it and it worth the money.

One of my best purchases of the year. I bought the unity tv soundbase to go in our lounge after being recommended it by a friend. When the soundbase arrived i was excited as the packaging looked classy so i couldn’t wait to see what the soundbase looked like. It was well packaged and came with a remote control, 3. 5mm to rca aux-in cable, optical cable, ac power cord and user manual. It’s a nice size (76mm x 346mm x 730mm) and it looks great with a glass top and touchscreen buttons. I found i could connect it both wired and wirelessly, what i also found was great is that i could connect my phone to it and play music via bluetooth. The soundbase sounds absolutely brilliant, it has 100 watts of sound and a built in subwoofer, it makes watching the tv so much better as the sound quality is so rich. I had bought my partners dad a soundbar in the past which was more expensive than the unity soundbase, but the sound quality is no comparison, the soundbase wins hands downoverall i would say that this has been one of my best purchases of the year, it sounds great, looks great and makes the tv sounds so much better, 5 stars from me.

Comments from buyers

“Bluetooth connection lets it down., KItSound Ovation soundbar. Second Review !!, Excellent product, good value for money”

I got the stadium 120 sound bar just in time for euros as missed out on tickets and wanted to treat myself to cheer me up. I can’t sum up how brilliant it is. The sound is just incredible. We’ve put the subwoofer behind the sofa so have audio coming from all around us and it’s fab, really brings an atmosphere to the lounge. Can’t wait for the euros to start. All my friends have said we have the designated tv now to watch it on nowit was really easy to set up (comes with a user manual just in case but i don’t think we even had to refer to it) but it’s worth mentioning that it didn’t come with a hdmi cable so will need to get one beforehand. They’re really cheap though so not a big deal. The packaging is really smart and professional and makes me realise why i shop with kitsound so regularly – high quality but at reasonable prices, can’t go wrong. The sound bar and subwoofer are both wireless which is great as it means there’s not wires trawling around the room making it unsightly.

Excellent product, good value for money. Excellent product, good value for money. Looks good, does what it says. Its not very loud at maximum volume but does the job in a small room. Would have rated it 5 starts but it cannot be easily controlled for volume using the quality optical connection and no easy workarounds if using via skybox remote.

Some problems – but a great piece of kit. Some problems – but a great piece of kit. I got my kitsound ovation yesterday. It comes in a lovely box that straight away makes you think ‘oooh, i’ve bought something really nice’. The unit itself has a nice shiny black finish and looks good. I got it connected to my panasonic viera tv with the optical cable (provided) with no real problems. I did struggle for a bit before finding out that the platic bits on the end of the optical cable are protective caps. I have a ps3 and a blu-ray player connected to my tv via hdmi — the sound is correctly output to the sound bar with no trouble. The sound is much better than the built in tv speakers.

Definitely worth considering a great purchase . Audio in video was recorded at the time of recording on camera using zoom h4n. This soundbar is not only one that looks great but it’s also modern and stylish making it ideal as a centerpiece in my multimedia outfit. The audio this soundbar produces is what i can only describe as ‘full’ with great dynamic range and base. It has the volume output and full body most of us are looking for when playing back movies especially but also music. I’m using it with a 27′ screen however it’s more the size of a 32′ plus. The finish on it is great with a dark grey lattice grill and chrome silver trim to sides and rear edge. The current mode that you are in is displayed on the front in blue led lights making it easy to adjust to your desired mode with the included remote control. Audio modes include audio input, optical (which i’m using for apple tv) coaxial, and bluetooth. There is also a usb connection to the rear.

Excellent sound for movies and music. I have recently acquired a kit sound stadium 60 soundbar. The first thing i did after unpacking and connecting the subwoofer was to connect the sound bar to my tv – a 32 inch sony bravia. As the tv is quite old it has no optical out so i used the provided rca to 3. I have to say that first impression was amazing. On the tv there was a drama. The moment i plugged in the sound bar, i felt i am in a movie theatre. The sound detail and depth immediately engulfed me – i could suddenly hear clearly all the steps and little background noises and the movie experience got richer. The subwoofer really does its jobi could connect my android smartphone (a samsung) via bluetooth with no problems. I tried different genres of music. It says on the specs that it goes up to 8 meters – i didn’t try to see how far away it would work though. I was only a couple of meters away and from that distance it worked brilliantly and the sound quality was excellent. All genres from hip hop to rock to vocal and classical piano sounded just incredible. The music filled the living room nicely and even when i was in the next room or in the kitchen the perceived quality of the sound remained high.

Missing that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ – updated. I’d love to say it’s a great product but it was shipped to me without power, a remote control, optical cable, and user manual. Needless to say, it’s going back. Who will be the next lucky recipient?. It could be youupdatewell, i’m pleased to say that having decided to return the original item that i received with so many missing pieces, the replacement came with everything as it should, but more importantly it sounds like i hoped it would. For the price, i think you’ll struggle to find anything better. It really does sound very good indeed. Also, i have to say that kitsound were very supportive too for something that was most likely out of their control. They obviously care about their customers as well as their products which makes a refreshing change so all in all, a five star rating is well deserved.

Kitsound – a very sound piece of kit. Enhances the sound to the nth degree on modern thin tv’s, in my case a 42 inch smart 3d model. At long last clear dialogue not overpowered by the music or sound effects, both on movies and modern tv drama offerings. Plug and play, use the optical cable from the box and simply a 5 minute job but hdmi and other connections are provided. Only slight moan is that there is a delay on the remote instructions taking effect, but hey ho, so what, for the enhanced viewing experience experienced, i’d put up with more than that.

I spent 2-3 days and many hours researching the options out there for sound bars and the like. I have a 32′ tv and an 80cm wide stand, so many of them were too wide for me. Also some of the older ones didn’t have great connection options. Most of the ones i looked at had a common theme in that they don’t seem to allow you to control bass and treble. It’s a case of what it sounds like out of the box for the most part. To me, bass & treble controls are something that is a must, i’m really surprised by how many sound-bars i have seen lack them. I suppose if you used the 3. 5 jack from a tv headphone socket to the sound-bar you might be able to control it better though. The kitsound ovation does have bass and treble controls and has more connection options than most too.

Hate doing reviews as still get stupid questions even years. Hate doing reviews as still get stupid questions even years later. Had this a week, only knocking down to 4 stars as ive not managed to suss how to stop the background overpowering voice. As it stands, brings background music etc to life that id never noticed on normal tv speakers, and just watched a glastonbury programme and amazed at the quality that come across as you can hear all background indtruments extremely well. Connects to bt effortlessly. Bought after trying sony and yamaha, and was about to try denon until saw the reviews for this one so decided £100 was worth the gamble. So, no plans to send it back. Cosmetically very pleasing and has a high gloss top. Only other thing that niggles is that ive had to place it a bit offset and the remote wont work unless you point it straight at it but after playing with bass and treble settings, only thing that needs occasional tweaking is the volume. 1 system then i could make the vocals a bit louder, but its not. I dont know how it compares to previous models i bought as couldnt get them to work, but this is optical input and im liking it so far. Oh – the writing in the manual is tiny by the way, and thought remote had been supplied without a battery but found it entangled in one of the power cables.

Great sound quality for a medium sized room, arrived in good time, easy set-up including wall-mounting.

First of all, i would like to thank amazon for such a great black friday deal at £80,bargain. The first was the yas-101, very good sound but no bluetooth and blocked my tv sensor. The second was the wharfedale vista 100, good sound with movies but too much bass with music. My third bar, the kitsound ticks all the boxes. It looks good, doesn’t block my tv sensor, sounds good with music and makes the tv sound a lot better. I’ve been watching the foo fighters series sonic highways, downloaded on my sky hd box. The sound through my tv speakers was awful and i could hardly hear dave grohl speaking. The kitsound brings the programme to life, making speech clear and the band sounds like its in the room with me.

A very simple solution for improved tv sound quality. At this price point the kitsound provides excellent value for money. Shorter that most sound bars which means its very easy to pickup and move about. All connections are covered so that means two 3. 5mm jacks, optical, coaxial and 2 hdmi pass throughs which makes life so much easier. The sound is a nice pleasant level. Its not very wide in surround sound mode and the bass isnt massively deep. This isnt for someone looking for an amazing immersive movie experience. This is for someone looking for an easy to use but big upgrade on the average tv speakers.

I agree with all of the glowing comments by the other reviewers. I am very impressed, especially with the virtual surround sound which brings movies on the tv to life. It comes with all the leads you will need (even a continental mains lead) but no batteries (2 x aaa) for the remote control. I wrote this a few months ago. Since then the ac/dc adaptor was destroyed in a flood. I contacted kit sound to explain and they sent me a replacement free of charge. Not only is the ovation a 5-star sound bar, but i had 5-star support as well.

I received this bluetooth speaker quickly and well packaged, as well as the speaker itself there are instructions, a remote control, coaxial cable and brackets to fix the speaker to the wall. The build quality and finish of the speaker is pretty good, this is definitely not a cheap looking speaker despite the modest price of £50, i especially like the finishing touch of the sliver strip across the top. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality as i wasn’t expecting it to look as good as it does, i have a roth bluetooth speaker as well (which cost over £150) but i prefer the look of the kit sound. I also prefer the remote control for the kit sound as it’s more user friendly and includes a battery. The setup process for the kit sound is simple, i paired it with my phone in less than 5 minutes and then it auto-connects every time you switch the speaker on after that. I have used the coaxial to connect to the tv but you could also use the optical. Additionally there is a usb port for charging other devices. The soundbar certainly impresses when put to the sound test. The speaker gives a well-rounded, balanced and immersive sound which can be changed to suit your taste by the three pre-set options (music, movie or night).

The kitsound ovation does have bass and treble controls and has more connection options than most too.

This is a great speaker for the money i paid. Has the quality of systems a lot higher in price. Vs, no matter how much you pay, £100 or £1000 the speakers just do not cut it. Looks fantastic too and people don’t believe how much i paid for it.
