Sony SRS-X88 review

 

A talented wireless speaker bursting with features and a powerful, weighty sound...

Best electrical item in my home

 

Lovey speaker, had two years now sounds great, works from my phone and connects easy, have two so I can play them both together in different rooms, if they ever break would buy again, definitely worth the price

Good Speaker

 

No trouble setting up for both Airplay and DLNA/UPNP. Have not tried Bluetooth. Software update went without hitch. Good Sound

Sony SRS-X88

 

Well designed and well made product - of course it's Sony. Good sound quality and like up to other parts of my system.

Read reports about perils of software updating - have resisted the temptation to take the plunge.
