Acessory Jack is delivered from China, not covered by UK warranty as far as I'm aware...

still good price:-)

Checked reviews on this. Some negatives about the Sony app.

Anyone know how it compares to the Sonos Play 5?

Great price btw

The Mission Aero is £199 at Richer sounds if you mention the vip offer when you ring.
Bought one on Friday.

Any more details re the VIP offer?

Also, it weighs 7kg, so I take it it's not designed to be used as a portable devise?

amazon prime music support?

Not doubting you at all but I'm signed up to their VIP mails & I don't think I got it, I wonder if they'll sell me 1 of those at that price, I quite fancy one!

That is super super kit. Heat OP.

I'm sure they will. I just rang the sales line said I wanted to buy a Mission Aero and I'd seen it for £199 in my VIP email. They didn't ask for my email address until after the purchase which I presume was to update the delivery etc. There's no specific reference on the email.
They didn't question me at all. The sale was done in about 1 minute.

Likewise. Received email Thursday and ordered Friday. On it's way to me in the next couple of hours. No mention of proof needed that I'm a VIP, but they again did ask for an email address.

Not had any issues with the app - sometimes it can take a minute to sync with the app. I have it wired via USB to my laptop and play Spotify wirelessly off my phone without any issues.

It's not really portable - Requires to be plugged in to the mains

I was looking for the frequency range but can't find it. Looks like it's just 50w.

Oh, thought you meant power output.

How do the speakers output 154w, if the consumption is 50w?

I bought one of the Aero's and am taking it back. Positives - really powerful, great bass and mid-range. Negatives - No matter how much I try to tweak it using equalizer, the top range is so tinny and harsh I have given up. Have tried running the speakers in and using high quality FLAC files to no avail. Real shame as I had high hopes.

Hmmm. I've sampled a few of these standalone speaker systems, and the Aero is certainly one of the better sounding systems - especially at the £200 price, not much can compete. Different music types can obviously affect the sound, but it seems to suit my musical tastes anyway. I wouldn't call it tinny or harsh sounding though.
