However, once I'd set it up (of which more below), it's very easy to use, and so far (only a day's usage, but there's surely no technical reason why it should be any different after a longer period), there's not been a hint of trouble with AirPlay - it's been rock-solid, responsive, and the sound quality is excellent. (I use an iPhone 4S (iOS6), and iPad 1 and a BT HomeHub 3)
The setup though is a complete faff, as others here have noted. It is worth persisting with, but took several tries to get it to remember my wifi details and then detect the wireless network. Now it's done, I'm hoping that if I don't use the speaker regularly (it will spend a lot of time unplugged - I do hope the battery powering the hardware which has the wifi settings retains a charge) I don't have to go through it again, as that would be unnecessarily painful.
So, that's it really - a speaker with great sound quality, hassle-free AirPlay support (for my setup at least), but irritating to get started with - so 4 stars.
"AD7000W is end of life product and the support is now offered via repair centres. Please contact your local Philips dealer for further assistance."
The looks and build quality are excellent and the fact it's slightly angled upwards,like its leaning back slightly helps infuse the room with music very efficiently.There is an app that can be downloaded called Soundstudio,this gives you the ability to do things like change sound settings and add radio stations.
Two minor complaints are its only wireless,no Ethernet and that as its on 2.4ghz when my iPad is on the 5ghz it can't immediately see the AirPlay speaker.This is solved by flipping wireless off and on again.As I say minor.
Configuring the unit is simple enough but fairly lacking in feedback - it's hard to know if you've done the right thing until the unit has had time to configure, while there's nothing to tell you you've done it wrong.
More importantly, it's not easy to realise the instructions are talking about the multicolour LED on the BACK of the unit, not the blue one on the front. Being clearer about this would have saved some frustration
The only serious annoyance with the unit is the power adapter - if you don't quite connect the UK plug properly you can bend the adapter a connectors out of place a little which gives you a loose connection. It's possible to fix, but an un-necessary annoyance that could have been solved with a better adapter.
Other than that the quality is good, it 'just works' with Airplay nicely, although I recommend leaving the unit running rather than turning it on when you want it - it's slow to reconnect and takes up to 40 seconds to be ready to play your music.
There's an aux cord option that works fine but leaves you wishing it came with a remote control - something which would be nice anyway, particularly if you're sending music from iTunes not your phone. There's also a configuration app for iOS (and possibly android) but it's only useable once your speaker is configured, and frankly it seems like an after thought. I used it once then forgot about it entirely
Overall I found it good quality (both build and sound) but a little tricky to configure and slow to connect.Read more ›

Really nice speaker, use it over Airplay and it works fine from an old IMac running Leopard or iPhone on iOS 9.3.4, Macbookpro running ElCap. Read morePublished 9 days ago by JIC

I'm afraid this turned out to be absolutely hopeless. I have the latest BT router and using this speaker it kept breaking up. I bought a wifi extender and it was even worse. Read morePublished 13 months ago by eggshellblonde
Brilliant sound and easy to set up.
Took a while to get the actual speaker though - first one didn't arrive and the second was faulty but third time lucky. Read more
