Rajan, Cambridge Very happy audiophile

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautifully made, robust unit. Easy to set up and install. Superb quality sound. Round house multi-room system for 1/10 the cost of a Systemline or Control4. Overall very happy with the units and value for money
Bad points:
Units can get quite warm so ensure at least 2u space between them in a data cabinet set up

Oliver, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sound is phenomenal - due largely to the Class A/B amplification used vs Class D in most other streamers/amps on the market. Build quality is also amazingly solid. Paired with Monitor Audio BX2s the sound is breathtaking
Bad points:
Streaming via iPhone results in fairly regular drop offs from the Aistream connection when changing track. Hopefully a firmware update or settings tweak will fix

Gordon, HAMILTON

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Looks very good.
Can stream devices wirelessly - apparently.
Bad points:
You need to buy speakers or the product is no good. The item is quite good apparently.
I say apparently because there was no mention of this before I bought it and most of the pictures show the device sitting beside a set of speakers. This is very misleading.
As a result I have been unable to use it as I will need to wait until I can afford to buy a set of speakers before I know whether it's good or not. Or even if it works or not as I have no way of being able to tell until I spend more money.


I would think though that this is not the fault of Audiovisual as a company but the manufacturers blurb should be making it crystal clear that you need to purchase ( or already own ) speakers. Audiovisual are simply using the text provided by the manufacturers to sell the product. Their service was good and also quick.

I didn't contact them about this as I felt too foolish that I had been mislead.

Stephen, Halifax Music lover

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb sound quality, actually a bit surprised just how good it does sound, very well built and I personally think it looks attractive, its certainly not your average oblong box as is the norm with amps.
Bad points:
Can be a little frustrating setting up the wifi part of it.
