I love it! While the other review complained about not having app to improve its features i personally love the fact we are able to control everything through the remote, i am just tired of having to download all these apps and create accounts.
It has a nice color option and the sound is pretty good for what it is.
It is perfect for bathroom or balcony.
Bought this as a Christmas gift for its sleek, compact design and great sound quality. But it'll be going back... the app fails to connect the speaker to Wifi, even using the alternate method. Speaker only connects when pressing WPS button on router, but then fails to reconnect automatically when powered on again. Customer service confirmed this is normal. And bluetooth & aux are inconvenient b/c speaker always defaults to wifi when turned on.
We received this item as a wedding gift from a family member in May of 2016. At the end of November, the sound bar suddenly stopped working. After getting contact with the manufacturer, I followed all the necessary steps to return the item as it was defective. I shipped the item through UPS as instructed (ground shipping) and it cost me $47.00. I contacted several supervisors through the manufacturer looking into a refund for my shipping costs. No one ever got back to me, and finally after weeks of calling and getting status updates, today, a supervisor tells me, that it's policy for the customer to pay one-way shipping and they won't refund my money. I was never informed that I was going to have to pay shipping, nor be refunded my shipping. The supervisor proceeded to tell me that they had made exceptions on my behalf. They said I had no receipt (which they had a proof of purchase on file after I sent it to them and that I was out of warranty.) The supervisor told me that warranty is a year, so I was clearly far less than a year, so no exceptions had been made on my behalf. He kept repeating to me that it was their policy for customers to pay one-way shipping. I informed him that this baits your customers because if they want their DEFECTIVE item replaced, they have to pay for shipping and that it's horrible customer service. I would not recommend using the manufacturer (Digital Products International) to anyone as their customer service is terrible and they trap customers with false lies and crappy products.
I worked great for a week! Radio, CD, Bluetooth all worked good. Then one day while using my phone to stream music it quit. I turned it off then back on and it would come on for a second then the display would go dark and nothing would work. Tried everything. finally I took it back and exchanged it. Hope number two will last longer.?not much bass, with no tone adjustment.underside, the display is hard to read at all angles.
I purchased these speakers for my kids this Christmas. I have already had to return 2 of them to the store for replacements. After only 15 min of use Christmas morning two of the speaker systems lost all sound even when connect with the audio cables. Took them back today. Got home with the replacements and after 20 min both speakers won't connect via Bluetooth. Was working now won't even try to pair. They only work with the audio cables. Not what I expected from ILive!! Now I have to go back to the store and try again. Any further issues and I will go with a different brand!
I recently got this for Christmas and I was delighted to see that I could now connect some kind of speakers to my tv given I saw "connects to your TV!" On the box several times.
This was not the case. My TV is a Vizio 39" flatscreen and does not have a female port for the auxiliary cable that the speakers come with. In order for me to connect the speakers to my tv, I have to go and BUY an Optical Audio//3.5mm adapter at some store elsewhere, and hope that they have one where the 3.5mm piece is a female port. If not, then I have to go and FIND/BUY a male-male connecting piece.
Just saying, if the speakers don't come with the hardware to connect to ANY/EVERY modern flatscreen, then please don't put that on the box.
Bluetooth sounds good and clear, could be a little louder but when hooked up through the TV it's very very quiet. Can't hook up to tv with rca cables cause you get no sound. The only way you get sound is run the rca to 3.5mm cable in to headphones jack and it is very quiet and doesn't provide a good home theater sound
