SC-AP01EB-K – Airplay Wireless Speaker System
Audio Features and Audio Technology
Pure Direct Sound System
Noise cancelling technology has been developed into the audio processor which lets you enjoy direct sound clearly, without the interference of unwanted reflecting sound.
Direct Vocal Surround
This feature positions the musical instruments in a surround configuration and accentuates the vocals in the centre so you feel enveloped by the vocals. Enjoy the same great ambience as if you were listening to a live performance in an actual concert hall
Bass sounds are conventionally controlled to match the sound volume. The stereo detects the characteristics of music, and emphasises the frequency band that has the most bass. This preserves the characteristics of the original musical instruments and produces powerful, rich bass sounds.
Aero Stream Port
The Aero Stream Port gives you rich, robust bass while controlling distortion.
Nano-sized Bamboo Cone Speaker
Even finer bamboo fibres have been developed for use in the construction of the 2012 cone speaker to reproduce clear, fresh natural tones with minimal distortion.
Connectivity and Networking
Wireless Music Streaming with Apple Airplay
Wirelessly stream music from the iTunes library on your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch or PC/Mac to the stereo and enjoy it anywhere in your home within your Wi-Fi network range. The music is streamed as lossless data, so there is no loss of sound quality from compression. • A wireless LAN environment is required.
Remote Control App for iPhone
By installing a Free Remote Control App onto your iPhone or iPod touch, you can easily operate your device by simply tapping and flicking on your iPhone or iPod touch. In addition to the remote control functions, you can also adjust the equalizer and other sound settings.
USB Port for Charging
For added convenience you can charge your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch via the built-in USB port.
Innovative Slim Design
The super slim style makes it ideal for easy placing on a shelf or cabinet.

C. Shepherd's review mentioned some of the issues with the Airplay implementation (i.e. audio lag, a delay in establishing a connection) - but these problems are inherent to all Airplay speakers, which in my opinion are worth putting up with for the benefits that Airplay brings over Bluetooth audio. (Better audio quality, the ability for any network device to access the speaker rather than being limited by Bluetooth range, and so on). If you'r familiar with Airplay technology, you'll find this speaker to be no worse than any other.
Network configuration can be done automatically using WPS (if you're anything like me it'll be the first time you've used it, if your router supports it) - on a device with no display it's by far the easiest way to connect the speaker to your network. If your router doesn't support WPS, putting the speaker into setup mode will broadcast a temporary wireless network which you can connect to using an iPhone/PC/Mac/iPad to access the speaker's setup page. From there you can manually input your WiFi network details.
As mentioned in other reviews, you can control the speaker's volume and tweak various audio settings using the iPhone app from the App Store. Personally I don't find this useful after the initial setup - but it's vital for things like being able to turn off auto-sleep (it's annoying when you want to connect to the speaker only to find it's in standby).
All in all, it's an excellent speaker for the money. If you're specifically looking for something with Airplay support and you don't care about too much bass in your music, you'd be hard pressed to find anything better.
Sound quality is excellent for a small and light speaker and although there isn't a lot of bass, the sound is good at all levels. I've listened to a variety of genres of music and all sound good.
Setup is a little complicated but that's mainly down to how the instructions are written. It'll take 5 minutes to setup and you're done. My WiFi range is good and as such this has become a speaker often used in the garden (on an extension lead) and in the bedroom.
There's a 3-4 second pause before music plays due to the Air Play link but to stream high quality sound I'm happy with that. I am yet to use the USB connection.
Paired with an iTunes remote app (check out the app store) this is a fantastic speaker to listen to iTunes around the house and garden.
