I don't understand why you would want a speaker that can only play spotify. Even if you have spotify premium wouldn't you want to listen to other sources of music?

Yes, I guess it basically ensures you pay and subscribe otherwise your speaker is not used/or you have adverts

Yeah, it's been around this price for a while including when there was the 10 pounds off at amazon - but it's actually pretty useless due to this - wouldn't buy it at a tenner. Shame really, don't know why they limit themselves!

Not entirely true. The philips software lets you set up individual speakers or a group.

You cant play individual tracks to seperate speakers unless you have 2 devices with 2 seperate spotify accounts.

Picked up 4 of these before xmas for £25 each.

Its a cheap way of getting multiroom setup but you are restricted to only spotify.

Sound quality is really good, especially when you have them playing in 4 rooms in perfect sync.

If you dont want to play in all rooms start it in one and when you move to a different room tap the play button on top of speaker and whats playing will move.

Looking past the spotify only issue, these are actually great.

If your a regular spotify user its a great way to get a multiroom setup for little money.

Name me a music streaming service that is better than spotify? Why would you want to use anything else, please don't tell me you use CD's? if so you can have my 3000 strong collection sitting in my garage!

I'll have your CDs!
Well I use Napster myself. But I also use Deezer, Google not to mention my own library of digital music. I have nothing against Spotify per se, but choice is a great thing, isn't it?
Would have got this if it wasnt for the spotify issue. I have 5000 tracks on my ipod and have no need for spotify.
OP, you've put SW750M in your description but the link and price are for the SW700M. The SW750M is available from the same seller for £44.95.

Choice is indeed a great thing.

Think this is aimed more at people like myself who listen to music ocassionaly and use only spotify.

To be honest the only time i have it on is when we have people round for few drinks.
I was thinking of getting it but only realised that it will only works with Spotify that put me hold back my final click... dissapointed...

Spotify is good if you hate music and like listening to everything in low bitrate

Deezer Elite, unless you like a tiny portfolio of mainstream music.
the larger 750 model is better for only £45
still cheaper here

I think the majority of the music loving population, myself included, lack the equipment, money or intellect to notice the difference between Spotify's 320kbps streaming and anything higher.

Spotify is great, I can always go and torrent some .flac files in future should the need arise but I can't see it happening.


The flac streaming and downloading sounds good, but only worth it if you have the equipment to enjoy it I think
OK, will ask the obvious...why hasn't anyone found a way to hack this and stream any music source via your home network?
We had one of these - one day it just decided not to power on....... went in the bin. Suppose for that price you can buy one every two years... sounds OK.

I love Spotify. It has nearly everything, nearly. But I am not willing to solely rely on getting music at compressed og vorbis 320kbps quality. I have recently got back into vinyl and listening to a modern decent pressing of something like Pink Floyds The Wall or Daft Punk's Random Access Memories is like breathing smog for years then suddenly inhaling fresh spring air right after it has rained. Even CD's with 16-bit Linear PCM sampled at 44,100 Hz is far less lossy than 320kbps ogg. I am all for streaming but to throw the baby out with the bath water just does not make sense

​No. I'll have your CD's - and so will my wife.

There are other streaming services albeit more expensive such as Tidal which offer lossless streaming. A friend of mine has a Krell CD Player cost a few grand, he definitely uses CDs. They sound amazing through his system, not everything sounds great on CD, it depends on how well it was mastered for CD.

Sure, choice is great. But I have the choice right now, yet I still use Spotify for 99%+ of my music. So I would miss out on this device that would play pretty much everything I want, just so I can say I have the choice?

It's not really a difficult concept to wrap your head around; some people use Spotify pretty much exclusively, and so this is a good device for them that fits their needs. Others don't use it as exclusively, and thus the device probably won't suit their needs.

Fair comment. I would only add that music companies come and go (e.g. PURE) then you are left with ..... ?
cmon guys and Gals this is a £32 all in one unit. why the hell are we talking about sampling rates, mastering qualities and comparisons to CDs....

it's £32 and good value for it, no it won't be as good as much more expensive units....
I have google audiocast connected to system in my conservatory. I had been thinking about buying 2 * SONOS Play 1's but as I only need speakers to play with SPOTIFY (i have a marantz pm6005 to play ripped cd's from PC in lounge) I decided to buy 2 * the SW750's (they do look quite large online but they look great in 'real life'.) The sounds is very impressive and is more than fine for conservatory / upstairs. I defo recommend buying one (or two) for £44. The good thing there is a play button on the top so unlike the audiocast where I had to keep going to my ipad/phone to start playing i can just play whatever I was last streaming...

UPDATE: Slight flaw, and I think someone may have mentioned this on here (or Amazon reviews) the WiFi isn't great - mine was in the same room as my router and the WiFi status was only 3/5 bars, I then moved it into the next room and it's gone down to 1/5 bars - so stopped playing. I had to move my router higher up and although it still shows one bar it is working..maybe something to think about - or use WiFi repeater / homeplugs.

Just got mine., Love it so just ordered another ..
I've two of the small units and one large. Bought in December. Great if you use Spotify for casual listening. Multi room is great. No problem with the wifi and my furthest unit is a couple of rooms away on a different floor from the router. I also use Soundwire android app on my separates system and would recommend that, never has an app been so under marketed!!
