This is a brilliant concept with a well executed product design. However, there are some problems.
I love being able to play my music wirelessly around the house, it's both novel and incredibly practical. Whilst this should be a simple install and play job, it isn't. Whilst the configuration is harmless, the provided documentation is inadequate and a basic knowledge of wireless networking is required. Not a problem for me.
The idea behind the product is that I should be able to listen to my music wirelessly around the home without interruption. Not the case. The status light reliably starts flashing orange to highlight connectivity issues during regular use. This requires the simple turning off and on of the device to reboot, but when the idea is that you can install this behind a dresser or desk then forget about it, then the concept fails. You shouldn't have to constantly attend to it whilst in use.
No other wi-fi devices in the house have these issues, so it's not the home network.
