Looks great, sounds okay.

I bought this with high expectations based on all the positive audiophile reviews. It's a great-looking device and very simple to set up, but I was really unimpressed by the sound. It's true that it pushes a surprising amount of bass and handles dynamics well for a speaker of its size, but I found that mids and vocals were pushed way forward, and overall the sound is as tinny and fatiguing as portable speakers generally are.
It doesn't sound terrible by any means, but it also doesn't sound better than any number of much cheaper options. Unless you're really excited about the app interface and the possibility of multiroom play (I'm not), I don't see anything to justify the pricetag.
If you're concerned with sound quality, you're better off spending an extra $100 on basic bookshelf speakers. If you're not, you could just as easily spend $50 on a Chinese-made bluetooth speaker.
