Stereo wifi streaming no longer possible after software "update". Speakers returned.
5 November 2018
I bought two of these speakers in February 2018, because they offered stereo streaming over wifi. This means two separate streams going to two separate speakers - true stereo, not "special effects" mock-stereo created electronically from within one speaker unit. There were a few niggles with connectivity, especially if the speakers were left for a few days, but once connected they worked well.
In October 2018 Libratone sent a firmware update. This update removed the functionality to stream stereo over wifi. Their customer service people tell me they weren't able to implement stereo streaming with Air Play 2, so they gave up on stereo. What a ludicrous thing to do - it's not an update, it's a downgrade. If I wanted mono or "pretend-stereo" from one speaker I would have used my old Jambox, not bought two Zipp Minis. I am sending these speakers back for a refund and will not be buying another Libratone product .
