Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BKR24 Great Product for Price
This is a great product for someone who wants to listen to good quality music in any room of your house. If you are looking to play music as loud as a rock concert this is not your answer but if you want to listen to music while entertaining you can't go wrong.
It is also great to take outside on your patio. I currently have mine hooked up to my tv so that I can either listen to the music channels or even flip over to a game and have the audio on outside when I need to go check the grill but don't want to miss a big play.
I had plans to order one of these and see how I liked it and then possibly order another. When I went back to order another after being satisfied with the first one, HD was sold out online. I will continue to check and see if I can't get another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph Works great for what I needed
I purchased this instead of wiring speakers to the outside of my house. For the price, I thought it was worth a shot. I've been very pleased with the product so far. It has much better sound quality than I expected and is loud enough to fill my entire back yard. I haven’t used it at the maximum volume because it would be loud enough to disturb the neighbors. I haven't had any reception problems and I've placed the speaker probably up to 30 yards away from transmitter. You do have to have the antenna up on the transmitter, though. I've used it with both batteries and plugged in, and both work equally well. I’ve used the speaker to play music from the radio, from my laptop, and from my TV. Setup was very simple. I had wired speakers at my old house, and between the two systems, I would chose this one. Not only for the price, but for the convenience. I’ve ended up using this in several places throughout my house and yard. With the wired speakers I had before, I found that the radio often ended up being too loud on the deck where they were mounted, and too quiet in the yard. With this system I can place the speaker off the deck so the volume is more suitable to everyone in the yard and it doesn’t pump too much sound back into the house.
One thing I didn’t read in the product description is that you can plug your device directly into the speaker, so if you decide to use a portable device, you don’t need to use the wireless transmitter, which is nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cookiesweikert Better then Ithought!
We hooked them up to OUR Receiver (some people aren't aware becasue they don't read the instructions!) and set it to the TUNER for some great radio and then set it up with an IPOD and WOW.............clear as could be. Perfect for watching TV too from out on the deack!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shrike0064 Works great! Wonderful sound. Good distance.
Sounds great. No distortion. Good audio balance bass to treble. Has great range. Comes with power adapters for both indoor and remote units or both can be operated on batteries. It does thump twice. Once on turn on then again when bass amp turns on. Lights up blue so you can find it in the dark. Large volume control on top. The whole top turns including the on/off button. Good weight to it so it doesn't blow over in the wind. Took it 80ft away and still sounded great. Have used it several weeks now, every day at my swim spa. Worked every day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GlassBullies Buy one for yourself, give one as a gift
Was initially skeptical because of the price. I'm a believer now. Range is more than enough for my small yard, makes it though walls very well. No more taking my laptop outside to enjoy internet radio. Great sound although I tweaked the EQ controls on my comp for best performance. Plenty of punch and well balanced. What ad doesn't state is it does come with a 3.5 to 3.5 audio cable and L/R RCA jacks to 3.5 cable, bonus! Mine was working withing 3 minutes of unpacking. Ad also didn't state the handle folds down which is handy. Be careful with the antenna as it is easily broken but replacements aren't hard to find. It also comes with 3 cradle adapters for your mp3 player to fit snugly in the transmitter. If your mp3 player can charge via usb there is a power port on the side of the transmitter for that as well. Note your mp3 player must support audio out via 3.5 mm stereo plug to be compatible. Given the even sound output from all sides of the unit I recommend placing it directly in the center of your entertainment space. I hung mine from a tree limb and worked great. Just make sure the little ones don't mistake it for a pinata!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good product, would be great if also was able to be used in the rain
For the price and sound quality I can't complain at all. I would love to be able to leave it outside when it is raining, or the like, but I don't read that it can be in the product description or manual. Again this is not a knock against this speaker but for the price, sound quality, etc. if it was weather-proof so I could do that, I would buy 10 of them (well maybe 3). :-)
The only other slight downside is if the transmitter is turned off and the speaker is on there is a slight buzzing sound but then again why would you want to have it on without the transmitter also being on?
So would I recommend? YES. Just remember don't leave it outside during any wet weather.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Timbo Home Depot was GREAT!
This PRODUCT: While I was looking forward to the use of these cordless speakers, I was very disappointed in their performance. As an ex-soundman I was surprised at the hum that was coming from the system. Almost like a missing ground within the system. At low volume (as to not disturb sleepers in the next room) the hum was to the point where I couldn't hear the dialog from the TV shows. I waited and hooked everything back up the next day to test it again and still got the same results. I was surprised & happy when I found out that I could return them to a local store, rather than having to ship them back. Thank you Home Depot for the ease of the return.
