Good except for App
from Phoenix, AZ, USA
Comments about Samsung Radiant360 R5 Speaker - Black:
I bought 3 of these speakers so that I could use the multi room functionality throughout my house. Unfortunately, you can only use that function via the Multiroom app, which has not worked well for me. I can not log in to Pandora via the app (keeps telling me my user name /password is incorrect - which it is not). Can't access Amazon music, because no code ever appears, and then app keeps dropping my iPad and iPhone music, and the speakers just turn off randomly. They look good, and when they work, they sound great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great Sound!, Good software (finally), Poor TV compatibility
I have been using it for almost a year now. Important things - Best parts: - The speaker sound quality is great. - The ability to connect to my wifi network and stream my music from my home media server, and 3rd party music services is awesome. This is much better than Bluetooth connectivity, (which it also has, and I use sometimes) because bluetooth streaming requires another device to remain in range providing the sound source, and also some of my Bluetooth audio sources (like my phone) noticeably decrease the sound quality. - The latest versions of both iPhone & Android software is reliable, full featured, and reasonably intuitive. Important things - Not so great: - It doesn't connect to my Samsung TV, as advertised. ... okay, reading the fine print, only "compatible TVs" support the Sound Connect feature. I'm currently in the market for another TV, and I would love one that is compatible, but can't find a list from Samsung of which TVs are compatible. Reviewing individual models, it looks like very few are? - I wouldn't recommend buying this with the expectation of using it with a TV, unless you do your research very well ahead of time on both devices' capabilities. Minor things: Good: I think it looks cool! Bad: Some of the 3rd party music providers have limitations that make them functionally useless for streaming over wifi to this device. This is not Samsung's fault, except for the marketing expectations. Bad: Setup, and re-setup has been non-intuitive. Bad: (Historical) - Past versions of the software were buggy and very non-intuitive. (Grrr!, but thanks for fixing.) Am I satisfied with this product? - Yes, pretty much. Would I buy this again? - Not at last year's price-point, but I would at this year's price point.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great Speacker system easy to contro with smart phone
Great Speakers.. So Good that I was only going to purchase one and ended up getting four. They hook up to a smartphone easily. Instructions on hooking up to computer are confusing.

Not what I was expecting, but still great
When I bought this product, I was expecting a wireless speaker that did not require being plugged in to work, so I was a bit disappointed to find out this wasn't the case. But after using this product for a while, the disappointment has disappeared. For its function, this speaker does its job exceptionally well.
from Marionville, MO
Great sound, easy setup and love the WiFi ability to add more speakers and surround sound.
It's an awesome product to buy
It's sound quality is better than any other docks available in the market.its easier to carry and its rechargeable so it makes easier to use
Very nice BT Speaker
from Louisville, KY, USA
Bought this on an impulse and glad I did. Product was shipped quickly and set up was a breeze. Newest version of the app works great and my wife has had no problem using the BT connection with her Windows 10 phone. Thinking about buying a few more to position around the house.
