​The speakers are probably great, like the Samsung speakers I bought were. Unfortunately the only way of controlling them via Wi-Fi is with the Samsung multiroom app which is shocking... my wonderful home wireless system doesn't work because of this.
Make sure you do your homework on the app if that's how you are going to use the speakers!
Samsung support is also woeful... ever had an email conversation with someone in Korea...?

​Are you using it right. I use my setup via my Samsung android phone, or my ipad, using either Spotify or tunein and have no issues. hot from me.
Yes, I think so... I can play via the apps you mentioned just fine. But as soon as I try to play my own downloaded music it cuts out mid song. Worked fine for the first three months but then, after an app update, it became a problem.
Have tried re-installing the app and using different devices but the issue remains.
Also have to often re-add the speakers as they seem to drop off the network.
Both of these are common problems for users if you do a bit of digging online.
It means my network at home is now not fit for what I wanted it for and I've bought a replacement.
On this basis and Samsung's woeful aftercare service I just couldn't recommend. Although if anyone wants to make me an offer on my 3 X samsung M5 speakers I'm all ears. I'll put the money towards sonos!
I had one of these last week and the sound from a Bluetooth connection was not very good at all, so I took it back.
It wouldn't connect to my home wifi network either.

Ah, I see - I have to scroll down to the bit where it says "create your own bundle", rather than to just click on add to basket and then increase the number by 2...

I see. I only use those 2 apps, which is maybe why I don't have any issues then.
I had one of these to try last week, but couldn't get it pick up my home wifi network. I tried with bluetooth, playing a music file from my nas server, and it sounded just awful, like wishy washy.

I have since bought a Marshall Acton bluetooth speaker, and the sound difference is like between night and day. There are Bass and Treble controls on it so you can adjust for your own needs.
