**Air Play Update** [If you're experiencing connectivity issues with AirPlay and have an active microwave oven within 6 metres of the Contour 200i Air (or your iPhone/iPad) the microwave may well be the cause. Microwave ovens emit radio waves/radiation that has a very similar frequency to WiFi and will disrupt WiFi connectivity. I tested the Contour 200i Air with an iPhone 4S and an 800w Microwave that was 4 metres away from the speaker. I streamed audio to the speaker using AirPlay without any problem, then switched on the microwave and within 4 seconds the AirPlay connection failed. I could not reconnect AirPlay to the speaker, until I had powered the Contour 200i Air off and on again. So be careful where you situate your speaker if it is in or very near a kitchen. Note, this connectivity problem is not specific to the Contour 200i Air, all WiFi signals are disrupted by nearby microwaves]
The speaker is solidly built, compact (37 x 23 x 17cm), made to a very high specification. It's matte black in colour, bisected by a silver band that houses the buttons. The solid back houses the Ethernet port, 3.5mm Audio in, DC power input, WiFi setup button and a digital coax connector. The front is made of speaker fabric under which are housed the two 9cm drive units (rated at 18W RMS each), between which protrudes a shallow tray on which is the standard Apple dock connector. On the underside between shallow sturdy rubberised feet are two downward firing bass ports. Location of the unit effects the quality of the bass - placed on fabric the bass will be more muted, placed on a solid hollow object (kitchen cabinet) the bass will have more resonance.Read more ›
First of all, I got this because of the AirPlay functionality, and I'm keeping it because it actually works, even though my wireless router is a bit far off in another room. I found that a couple of times when connection was not flawless it was due to slow internet connection (which made my Apple TV slow to resend the sound data to the device) rather than anything else. Besides my router is crap and still most of the time the connection is excellent. Connection always seems to be best with a computer, Apple TV or iPad. With iPhone, not quite the same. The sound gets interrupted sometimes. I'm putting it down to the iPhone (mine is 4S) which probably is not as fast as other devices and cannot handle the relay of data. I imagine newer phones (5 and future generations) will be better equipped to handle this.
Second. The quality of sound. I was blown away when I first tried it. The sound is clear and completely fills the room. Perhaps this is not enough for musicians who have professional knowledge of sound equipment, but is more than I expected and I am a bit finicky about my speakers and headphones.
Third. It looks beautiful with an iPod, iPhone or iPad docked. I have an old iPod which I no longer use cause I carry all my music in my iPhone, so I just leave it permanently docked. The device readily recognises which device is playing, the one docked or the one over the AirPlay and switches swiftly from one to another.
Now, for the downside.Read more ›
As some of the other reviewers have mentioned the sound output is heavy on the base, however for my needs (speaker in the kitchen) it's adequate and compliments my AppleTV hooked up to the entertainment system in the living room.
It should be noted that multi-play on more than one Airplay speaker can only be sourced from iTunes on your PC/MAC, iOS does not support Airplay multi-speakers, however by using the Remote app on your device and remotely accessing the PC/MAC iTunes library multi-speaker output can be achieved via your Apple device.
I have an iPhone 4S iOS5.1.1 and the Airplay wireless connection to my BT Homehub 3 is flawless, very stable with no drops outs. The wireless set up is straightforward with clear instructions in the accompanying Owners Manual. The speaker and wireless connection is always `On' and easily available from the list of speakers on iTunes or the device within the Airplay "button". During set up the name of the speaker can be changed for ease of id.
The supplied remote has a number of useful features and works well, handy for volume control amongst other functions; the battery (CR2025) is easily accessible in the event of change.
The speaker itself has weight and feels substantial. It has a rubber footing on the base that suppresses any vibration.
I have a silicone skin cover on my iPhone 4S and I do not have remove this when docking into the speaker, which by the way has a very positive connection and when docked my iPhone charges up.
It is approx 36cm/14" in width and 23cm/9" high. The button on top LHS switches between Standby and Sleep and On, however the speaker status will auto wake up when it recognises Airplay from the device/PC/MAC.Read more ›
