KitSound Upstage 2 – I was surprised how much I like these

High quality and user friendly wireless link for speakers. This is a fantastic bit of kit. It takes no time at all to get it up and running, with very clear instructions in the manual, and a superfast connection to my router. The jukebox app works very well, and i also installed the radio app, which has a similar user-friendly interface. I also connected through spotify, so can use my speakers through the link for everything i need. The quality is exceptional, and it all works very smoothly. It means that i can now control my bose sounddock from my iphone and don’t need to upgrade it.

I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I have wanted a ‘sonos’ type system in my house for some time but have avoided buying sonos because i just didnt want to be chained into their system. I took a punt on these and i am so happy i did. I recognised kitsound from the pulse radio i have (still running great) so when i saw that they had come up with this solution it seemed like a good choice. I bought 2 so i could do the lounge and the kitchen. Set up – 9/10set up on this was a flipping dream. I downloaded the app to my phone. Then i powered up the first one, (had to use one of the many usb mains chargers i had lying around as there was not one in the box – i would take half a star off for that but i cant so i’m leaving it at 5 and taking a point off the 10 for set up) i waited a bit for it to boot up then pressed the wps key on it followed by the wps key on my router. By the time i had walked back into the lounge it had a solid white light on it.

From pc to any speaker in the house – brill. Awesome piece of kit that allows you to play music from your pc to any speaker in the house that has a 3. Simple to use, easy to connect, and very good value for money, as you don’t have to purchase a whole new bunch of speakers.

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

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.

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’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.
