KitSound Voice One : Great quality sound and a good looking unit with Alexa

This is a great idea, lovely sound, a great speaker built in. The trouble is it doesn’t hear you very well, you have to shout at it. The standard amazon alexa is better by far, if they could make this with a hearing aid it would have got 5 stars. Unfortunately i returned mine, swapped it for the genuine article.

1 year on and still works amazing with great sound quality, certainly fine for a medium size room.

Pros — audio quality is very good- set up onto wireless home network is a cinch with the smart-phone app- works well with lots of streaming services such as amazon music and spotify- retro styling is very attractive and build quality is robust- came with multiple power cables for different countries and a remote control with battery included- seemed to pick up me saying ‘alexa. ‘ very well despite volume of the music playing- takes advantage of all the options open to you with alexa – e. News briefs, weather reports, what’s on at your cinema etc. Cons — only bass and treble are controllable via a smart-phone app – there is no high/mid/low equaliser- boot up time is quite slow – takes a long time to reconnect to the wifi if you have had it switched off- given how the speakers are built into the sides and the bass comes out of the back, there is only one way to ‘mount’ this speaker and that is to have it standing tall as shown in the picture – this very much limits your options as to where to locate it and indeed if you tuck it into a corner you’ll ruin the stereo effect- alexa misunderstood my commands time and time again – to begin with this was quite funny but it soon stopped being a joke and just got irritating- the little remote control has poorer build quality than the speaker itself and felt a bit cheap in comparison.

First up: i can understand peoples’ issues with getting set up: – installation was a bit of an issue, you see the problem is that like many wifi services, eg wemo, and this speaker, it relies on you connecting to the new devices’ own “hotspot” to set it up. Fine in theory but for one android specific issue – android is “clever” and will by default disconnect from any wifi network that it detects can’t access the internet, in favour of one that it can. So installation goes like this typically:- click wifi networks on android, choose kitsound speaker. – android goes back to your household router. – click kitsound speaker again- android goes back to your household router- tell android to forget the household router- click kitsound speaker again- android refuses to connect to it- try a new phone- android finally connects but complains there’s no network- you try the app, then realise android is actually using 4g now and so still can’t see the speaker- turn off 4g- finally the app can see the speaker. And you don’t get that half hour back. But that’s pretty much what goes on. Same happens with wemo, same with any of these devices that connect this way.

  • Amazingly good
  • Great value alternative to the mainstream brands
  • Very good sound – very pleased

This is an impressive looking speaker but did not quite deliver on its promise. It arrived in a large box containing; the speaker itself, mains leads covering uk, europe and the us, a 3. 5mm aux cable, a remote control and instructions which are rather vague and rely on the app to set the speaker up. You will also need the amazon alexa app to set up this functionality. Setting the speaker up raised an issue as you have to connect to the speakers own wifi hotspot. Using android it will by default disconnect from any wifi network which can’t access the internet which is not mentioned in the instructions or the app and you may need to disable mobile data to stop it dropping back to 4g if using a phone. You also need to remove the isolating tab on the remote control to allow it to work. This allows you to mute the speaker, change the volume, or manage sources. The speaker is quite large and impressive looking from a distance but the speaker doesn’t quite as solid when you pick it up. It has a fabric cover with all the controls at the front.

Good value speaker, ideal for a small room and works well with alexa albeit she does seem a bit more attentive to the tv compared to the amazon dot she replaced in the bedroom.

Rating this device is a little tricky – if i was to consider sound quality alone it would rate a three or three and a half. But it isn’t just a speaker. To me it feels like a personal assistant, and it’s really quite useful at times. If sound quality is your main concern, and you’re hoping for a stunning hi-fi quality device then you’ll be disappointed, and i recommend you go elsewhere, preferably to your local hi-fi dealer. A small, plastic, inexpensive thing like this will never be able to match the ability or sound reproduction of a real and much more expensive dedicated hi-fi speaker like – for instance – my set of monitor audio’s. The sound quality of the kitsound is variable, and it seems to depend on what one plays. I’ve fed mine with a lot of different sources and the results are pretty mixed. For instance, i was surprised by how good it sounds playing classical music, which is delivered incisively, with clarity and bight. But feed it anything heavy and complex and it becomes a little unstuck. White stripes was really too much for my sample unit, which was unable to resolve the complex harmonics and layered sound effects.

Very nice speaker – getting the echo working was a bit tricky as i did not have the location setting on. Once i set this on my phone where i’d downloaded the app. To it was only about 5 minutes to complete the installation.

Brilliant speaker but didn’t realise alexa was limited.

Having spent a couple of days looking at various speakers. I was left deciding between a sonus or kitsound must say i not disappointed. Alex was easy to setup and the mic can be turned off when you don’t want to be monitored. The sound is great the speaker spends most of its time on half volume much more and the neighbours complain.

Good looking piece of kithave set this up to control my heating. My lights and 2 sockets the sound i think is second to to noneaux connected to my surround sound fills the room all with voice control. Download alexa and kitsound app follow instructions. . Easy connection all automatic wifi blutooth aux simpledownside. Remote i did not receive one in my package. Perhaps they will send me one?????.

Perfect and with great sound quality. The column is super responsive, easy to set up well with alexa’s application. I’ve never had a problem setting up skills with third-party apps to control the devices by voice.

Bought this after reading other reviews. It has a good deep bass and plenty of volume. However the amazon echo has a much cleaner and clearer sound.

I’ve been running a squeezebox system for about 10 years or so, but slowly the hardware is starting to fail. This was bought as a replacement/combination for the squeezebox boom and echo dot in the kitchen. First impressions are “nice packaging” and “it’s a bit bigger than i expected”, however it’s not excessive and the volume knob is nice and tactile. I’m pleasantly surprised to say that it can replace the two devices i was using previously. The sound is less bassy than the boom, but it sounds a lot better than the echo dot by itself so despite being a bit thin for my liking, it’s acceptable for the kitchen and can make itself heard above usual kitchen sounds. Setting up the speaker itself was easy with the kitsound app – though there’s also a webpage that allows it to be configured when you connect to the setup wifi network. The app (on ios) allows streaming of your itunes music collection (though nothing in icloud) and a few other services. You also use the app to switch alexa into uk english mode and get the “right” voice back. The speaker contains a wiimu linkplayer implementation and as such has airplay built in. Supporting chromecast audio as well might be useful for android owners.

Great product works well, nice sound.

I bought one for my living room and one for my bedroom. It took me a few days to figure out how to get the multi-room working but now it’s all set up it’s fantastic. The sound from them is really crisp and clear and it’s really easy to link to spotify on my devices. Only downside is that i’ve got the speaker near the tv so sometimes alexa will turn on music, etc. Because of dialogue in whatever i’m watching.

The little plastic tag with the brand name on it fell off as i took this out of the box, which didn’t inspire confidence in the quality control. The box in question was diagonally cut, and was certainly eye-catching – i care much more about the contents, personally; i’ll be throwing the box away so it doesn’t really add any lasting value. Before i deal with the technical side of connecting the speaker, i’ll say that i found the sound pleasantly engaging: at low levels it is light and slightly treble-led, but when turned up, a pleasing bass comes into play. I wasn’t very impressed with the omnidirectional sound – it felt like mono to me. It would be better to buy two of these and get them playing in stereo pairing. Up to eight can be used in synch, all in different rooms if you like. Volume can be controlled with the remote control provided, which is small but feels well made (cr20 battery included). The speaker has an inbuilt amazon alexa feature whivh works well. I fail to see the attraction personally, but it seems to be very popular for some reason. Connecting to your wifi is easy, unless you use your mobile phone as your hotspot when at home, like me.

I got this 2 pair up with the rest of my speakers. But its does not support multiroom.

This is brilliant — when you have managed set it up. The sound is good, and alexa’s skills are impressive. However — one big snag is that you cannot set it up without the kitsound app to connect to wifi. You cannot download the app with windows (we have a windows 10 laptop) or with amazon fire tablets. The app is available with ios or android, onlywe had to beg a friend with an ipad to install it for us. Now it has connected to our router, but as we still do not have the kitsopund app, we are unable to update it. For a good piece of kit, it seems very shortsighted that the app needed to install it is only available through ios or android.

Very impressed with the setup, features and superb sound quality. I had intended to purchase a much better known brand, until i heard a sound comparison and looked at the fantastic connection options. I purchased a pair and have them set as right and left stereo channels in a large room.

 having owned an echo dot since it’s launch i was already familiar with alexa capabilty but you can’t use it as a speaker in a decent size room. This however solves the problem, a bookshelf style speaker with great sound, alexa, and at a good price point. Out of box set up was easy, there was a software upgrade but instructions were easy and clear to follow. I had it set up quickly and linked to my home wifi. The sound is the big difference, it easily fills a room and i was only at half volume or so. It looks good, very contemporary and easy to know that alexa is listening by changing light colour on the front of the speaker. (it is easy to turn off to if needed).

I used to have an amazon echo. I loved it, but the sound quality really let it down. It was fine for everyday stuff, but when i wanted to use it to listen to music a bit louder it really struggled. I wanted to upgrade the sound quality, and was considering splashing out on an apple home pod when they come out… but then i saw the voice one. All the alexa functionality of the echo, but with better sound – soldi have set mine up in the kitchen, mainly for listening to music while i cook, so the nano-coating feature is great. I gave the jamie oliver ‘skill’ a go to give me a recipe to follow, which was really fun. A small criticism i have of the speaker is that it doesn’t support 5ghz wifi networks – so i had to fiddle with the settings in my router when setting it up. All sorted now, but a bit of a headache at the time when i just wanted to start using iti had no problems connecting the speaker to both my iphone and my girlfriend’s samsung galaxy, and it’s great that we can listen to music from both apple music through the ks player app, and spotify. All in all though, the voice one is fantastic – can’t believe i got such a great sounding speaker for such a good price. Would happily recommend the speaker at this price even without the alexa functionality, so the fact that it’s a smart speaker is amazing.

KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Compatible – Sound quality is good, but only when it actually connects

I’d been looking out for an inexpensive bt speaker for a while, and when i saw that this was on offer and had good reviews i thought i’d take a punt. It was definitely worth it, as i think for the money it really represents good value for money. Sure, it’s not the loudest, or got the heaviest bass tones, but what is does give you is good overall tone, reasonable volume, in a package that is fairly compact. It is easy to pair to your device, and can also act as a speaker phone with it’s integral mic. It comes with a case, usb and phono cables, and has a removable battery which could be easily supplemented if you so wish. I have used it for several hours continuously without charging, but am not yet able to confirm the claimed playtime of 20hrs. Overall a good value item, with decent build quality and good output for the cash.

Well, this is just excellent for the money. Good instructions, and everything you need in the box – 3. 5mm stereo jack lead in case you can’t connect via bluetooth. Stand for the speaker so you can stand it up and excellent quality case for it all to go in for carrying around.

I bought this bluetooth speaker to use with my amazon echo note. Setup was simplicity itself and was done in a couple of minutes. The speaker has a phone style battery which you insert into the unit, it charges up quite quickly and lasts a very long time between charges. I only paid £20 for my speaker so was not expecting top quality sound but overall i am very pleased. The sound is very clear and doesn’t seem to be distorted if volume is increased. Anyone expecting deep bass sounds will be disappointed though. The complete package includes charging cable and a very useful carrying case. The unit is nice and small, nicely designed and good value for money. Here are the specifications for the KitSound BoomBar Universal Portable Rechargeable Stereo Bluetooth Speaker Compatible:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Bluetooth and line-in connectivity so you can connect more devices
  • Passive radiator for extra bass
  • Hands-free function for taking calls, and in-line microphone
  • Up to 20 hours of music play time and a charging time of just three hours
  • Hear your music from up to 10 metres away

Dissapointed with this bought it to use at work build quality is good and supplied with a decent casehowever sound qality is poor buttons cant make out whats written on them is use an ipod classic via aux port on the side you cannont hear it at all you have to turn ipod onto full volume even then its quiet if you use it for blutooth maybe ok i have a sony one for home which leaves this one in the dust if you want good sound and volume go else where but if you want one for the kids this maybe ok.

This is a review after 6 months of using it. Started having problems with bluetooth pairing. It also makes a lot of crackling noises. Even when i connected the cable directly to my phone, the crackling noise is still ongoing. Sound quality is good, but only when it actually connects.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I only paid £20 for my speaker so was not expecting top quality sound but overall I am very pleased. The sound is very clear and
  • Sound quality is good, but only when it actually connects
  • The IPod unfortunately only lasts at best 9 hours but that is because it is on

Although the sound is quite good for the price range, the microphone is of low quality as other side complains that i sound muffled or there is an echo on their voice, and the indicator light is too bright, i had to cover it with duct tape. Also note that charging port is a mini usb and charging cables are not as common as with micro usb.

Bought this to link up with a nano ipod on bluetooth with sleep music for a special needs child. At least the speakers battery life is correct as it is on for over 11 hours a night and is recharged every third day. The ipod unfortunately only lasts at best 9 hours but that is because it is on blue tooth. Will use the auxiliary cable supplied with the speaker so we can connect the speaker direct to the ipod hoping the battery lasts longer in this mode. This is a second speaker the first we got from john lewis at £29. 99p on amazon although you do not get a two year warranty with amazon.

Love this bombar for the price and quality. Have purchased a number of these for family and friends and they all love it. I take it on holidays with me and it provides great sounds so that i enjoy my music anywhere.

KitSound Hive 2 Plus Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, Bought Another for friend

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.

The speaker itself is a great little speaker for the price. The problem is charging it-the adapter doesn’t fit properly in the micro usb slot, it seems loose and i thought it was just mine but looking at some other reviews, it seems to be a common problem. I can usually only get it to charge by jamming it up against a wall and putting something heavy against the speaker but it’s recently stopped charging altogether. It’s a really unfortunate flaw because the speaker itself is great but actually the charging problem is so damn frustrating that i would avoid buying it.

I’ve enjoyed my kitsound hive for a long time now, i can’t think of a better bluetooth speaker in terms of sound quality and my non-bose budget. I love having this second speaker to hand, my only gripe is that every time you switch on the kitsound hive x and connect, the default volume on playback is very very loud (in comparison, my kitsound hive remembers my previous volume setting no problem). I’ve checked with the manufacturer and this is something that is hard wired in, so be aware.

Comments from buyers

“Excellent portable audio solution, Great value, great sound!, Nice sound and design – dreadful packaging”

My daughter is a pt instructor so needs a great quality sound, she is over the moon with the whole package. Very solid sturdy speaker with an amazing sound even when played loudly she previously used beats and said this system is just as good for a fraction of the price.

The sound quality is surprisingly good, if your looking for a good sound and nothing fancy that looks somewhat decent from about 1m distance, this is for you. But the build quality could be better. Also had to replace one of these, since it just died on me after about 3 weeks use on a desk. The replacement they sent also has some build issues:the bottom bass radiator cover looks really dodgy (check the picture),the grill had some paint chipped in a tiny area, regardless – very annoying (probably fixable w/ permanent marker),the usb micro port also misaligned. Don’t get me wrong – it was new, in a sealed box, but i had a feeling that they’ve sent me a refurb :d maybe it is, don’t know. But for the price, it does a lot for me. If they would make a version somewhat as portable and with better build quality,maybe even more bass and mids – i’d buy it again.

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.

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% .

I’ve heard good sound quality from small speakers like bose, but at a price. I am amazed at the sound from this tiny, inexpensive unit. Rich base, delicate trebles, you can hear every finger pluck on a guitar. When it was first unpacked, naturally it needed charging. The initial charge took about 6 hours, not the 4 claimed. Bluetooth connected flawlessly to both my ipads, and i am now, via the ipads, able to stream music wirelessly from my imac computer in another room. The volume is more than adequate for an average room. Just a tip – if you use an ipad or similar, disable the keyboard clicks from your tablet or else it sounds through the speakers.

Pure quality sound from my ipad,2nd version, first one lasted a few years before the socket lead ‘fell in’so i bought a replacementi am very happy with the new version.

A brilliant mid range option with good sound quality and volume range. I’ve not been disappointed and would recommend to all who want to take the melody with them without hitting the wallet to hard.

Absolutely love these speakers. My friend had his similar bose speakers with him and i did a comparison between the two. Honestly, the sound is clearer within the kitsound hive speakers and the bass pump is so good for such a size. The price is superb and you get more than what you pay for quality wise. Do not be afraid to buy it, the biggest difference i felt between the two speakers were that the bose speakers had a slightly (very unnoticable) stronger bass kick and the grip within ks when you place it on the table could be a bit better when on full volume, because on heavier bass tracks it starts moving a bit. But that is not a big problem in my opinion. You save a fortune and get excellent quality.

Excellent for what it is, sound quality is great as long as your expectations are realistic. Obviously a portable speaker of this size is never going to sound like a proper hi-fi, it’s not something i’d recommend as your only source of audio at home. However, this is great as a portable unit that’s good for camping trips, hotels, out in the garden etc or just as a quick and easy boost to the audio output of a laptop. I’ve previously used the popular x-mini speakers and, in volume terms, this sounds roughly comparable to two of those daisy chained together but the sound quality of the hive is better and whereas the x-minis tend to bounce around all over the place and fall over this is much more stable. The ‘passive bass radiator’ on the bottom actually does seem to help extend the bottom end a bit, particularly if the speaker is placed on a hard surface and the bass response is pretty good (again – if you’re realistic about what can be achieved at this size and price). I’ve had no problems with the bluetooth but i do tend to use the 3. 5mm stereo jack more often simply because it uses less battery power both on the speaker and on whatever device i’m using to play music from. The battery life is excellent too, i’ve certainly had more than the advertised 10 hours out of a full charge when connected through the jack input. For about a quarter of the price of a bose soundlink mini you can’t go wrong.

Out of both hive speakers, hive 1 and 2, i prefer the hive 1. To me they both have the excellent sound, just feel as though they have just added extra buttons to the hive 2. . So not sure if its really an upgrade or not.

My car stereo broke due to loom problems so was stuck driving a car with no music, so decided to invest in the hive 2 so i could bluetooth music from my phone. It works brilliantly, it just sits on my dashboard pumping out music, and when im parked up i just slip it into my pocket and away we go. An excellent speaker for under £50. Has some weight to it too so you know it has excellent build quality.

This speaker is pretty amazing in almost every way. Never run out of battery on me when i was using (though i do take care to charge between uses, where possible), have had it for around 2 years and it is still going strong. Only things that could be stronger is the power / bass, as i previously owned an anker speaker that was around the same size but performed quite a lot better in these areas.

When i open the box, i am surprised by the quality of the speaker and all the assessors that comes with the speaker. The speaker comes with a pouch for carrying the speaker around, a 3. 5mm aux cable to connect to device that do not have bluetooth connection, a micro-usb cable for charging the speaker. As i like to listen to music and watching movies a lot, i always wanted to have a high quality speaker to replace my laptop’s crappy speaker. The hive is an excellent speaker, it is very loud and it does not change the audio quality a lot when the volume is turned to the highest. Although, the hive does a good job with high volume, when the volume is low, there is a ‘windy’ noise as if there is a breeze blowing in the background. The sound quality is astounding, it has very good base and treble, so it is perfect for any music genre. Compared to other portable speaker around this price range, the hive must be the top of them all. I have been using this speaker every day since i bought it, i only need to charge it every 3-4 day, the battery was amazingly good, it can last for a very long time without needed to charge it.

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.

Small with a nice rubberised finish. Sound quality comfortably exceeds computer or phone speakers, but obviously not anway near hifi standard. A couple of niggles, there is some extraneous noise when music isn’t playing but is not obvious when music is playing. The other issue is that if you have more than one device paired it holds the pairing after the first device is shut down and refuses to connect to the second device. The first device has to be manually disconnected. This happens both on my speaker and my son in law’s. He in fact was on the verge of returning it as technical help at kitsound thought there was a defect.

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.

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.

This bluetooth speaker is great. The sound is amazing for a speaker that small and it can be quite loud at max volume. It’s quite heavy so it feels sturdy and won’t move from where you put it. The battery life is really good too. I’ve had it for ~3 months now and i had to charge it once even though i use it almost everyday for ~20 minutes. The only reason i’m not giving it 5 star is that there’s quite a bit of static noise at low volumes. It was quite bad with my galaxy s3, but even with a more recent phone (htc one m8), there’s still some static. Once you turn the volume up it’s better but it might be more annoying if you listen to quieter music. All around, it’s great and for the price, i can’t ask for a lot more.

Sound good and battery life good. Left outside whilst mowing the lawn and forget it. Rained that night and speaker did not survive. Looks water resistant but not. Have replaced with one to better suit my forgetfulness.

Although we have a dab radio in the kitchen it does not have any way of playing from other sources. So we decided to get a bluetooth speaker. The sound coming out of this device belies its diminutive size. It’s easy to pair with devices and pushes out a remarkable clear, bassy and wide sound. The battery life is good too.

Got this for hubby and the sound is absolutely amazing. It’s really quite small and easy to carry and you can’t believe the volume or sound quality. My only complaint is that when i want to use it (note that it’s for hubby, so he’s the main user) i have to pair it each time which is annoying.

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.

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.

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.

Kitsound Ovation Slim Soundbar 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

– replaced 5 speaker surround system with this, less wires, less to dust and great sound.

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.
