KitSound Boom Evolution Link Multi-Room Audio Wireless Music Streaming System – From PC to any speaker in the house – Brill!!

Great for multi-room, but make sure you get at least 2. Anyone who reads my reviews knows that i am all about technology that not only does something that i could never have imagined before that it could ever do, but is also really simple to use. I don’t want to be spending half of my life trying to set up something, and chances are i will just leave it if i spend ages without any luck. That is exactly why i was quite hesitant when it came to this product. I could easily see why someone would want it, but could someone like me actually use it?the packaging of the kitsound link is absolutely gorgeous, and it gives a really enjoyable unboxing experience. I loved the silver and the grey tones all over, something that kitsound has done for a few other products (i think) to highlight that they are really premium. There are tonnes of icons and bubbles and everything, which is great but something that you cannot really get from amazon (check out my photographs for more details). I have to be honest though, and just as i have experienced with other kitsound products, it can be ridiculously difficult to get into them. The actual box wasn’t so bad, but because of the way the tag was fitted, i had to really wrench it to get it off.Make sure that you are happy with potentially destroying part of the packaging to actually get to it.

Excellent audio streaming client. A first-rate, stable audio streaming client with more capability than chrome audio at the audiophile end of users. Recommendation to the developer: the component should return to the previous state after a power interruption. In the current firmware, the user has to push the power button to get it running.

I’m glad i found these little boxes. I was considering investing into sonos, but due to having existing high quality hifi systems throughout my house i was looking at four of the sonos connect units at £279 a time, which is a lot to pay to get a digital output from a digital systemthese units do exactly the same job for around a quarter of the price. To be completely fair to sonos, their app is brilliant, but for a 75% saving i was happy to put up with the slightly clunky nature of the allplay jukebox app. I subsequently discovered that the musaic app supports these players, which is a much more user-friendly experience than the jukebox app. I only expect this to improve in time. The packaging the boxes come in is more like something you’d expect to receive an iphone in. My versions came with a usb power supply, plus a usb to mini usb cable and a 3. The unit itself is very well built and has a quality feel to it.

  • A sound piece of kit from KitSound!
  • High quality, very versatile – Very impressed.
  • Multiple zone tech without having to replace existing equipment

Brilliant piece of kit, had it setup in less than 5 minutes. Really impressed with sound quality from both my ipad and htc phone and real added bonus i was able to play the music stored on my nas drive. Amazed at price for features .Will order another for bedroom hifi.

Mutli-room audio to rival them all. I’m an avid fan of multi-room audio and have played with a combination of technologies to achieve what i really want. The competition in the last year has ramped up as the other big corporate players have adorned us with their equivalent offerings, which in my opinion are still playing catch up with their unstable apps and flaky reliability. As with all new technologies there will always be glitches and bugs in the beginning so imagine my surprise when my two kitsound links arrived, set up in 10 minutes and not a glitch to speak ofi’ve had this pair for a month now and i love them.They are very small and light which some would say makes them feel cheap but they are essentially a very small device, light and small is actually what i need. Aesthetically very pleasing, finished in a black piano high gloss with an illuminated large power button. I received two boxes that were roughly 15cm x 7cm, neatly packed inside was the unit, usb cable, plug adapter and manuals. 5mm jacks included but i believe this was thrown in as an extra and may not be standard. The back of the unit reveals a mini usb port (power), aux out (3.

I was surprised how much i like these. I’ve had this pair for a month now and i like them more than i thought i would. They are very small and light. Some may say they haven’t got much ‘substance’ to them, but it’s electronics. Being powered by usb is very nice. I have recently installed several socket faces with 2 usb ports and devices like this allow me to plug in 4 devices before needing to resort to extension leads. Their small footprint means they can be tucked into small available spaces. Setup was quite simple, although i did have to change the wifi password encryption type, but that’s no bad thing as i had to make it more secure. Even without the convenient wps button it’s just a case of connecting to the devices wifi, setting up things on the page, then back to your normal wifi. The quality of the music is flawless as far as my average ears can tell, and the app is very responsive. A change of volume, a pause, skip; all are immediately actioned. I haven’t used the two at once as of yet, but with mine placed in the garage and the living room, there will be (warmer) days when projects have me running to and from the garage, and being able to continue listening to my music as i move around will be great. Talking of moving around, when i used to have my phone plugged into my stereo to listen to music i would have to keep going back to it to change track, skip a dud, or queue up something i just thought of. Having the music control in your pocket makes that so much easier.
