I would expect a good quality product from AR and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of the sound and of course it worked out of the box. Walking with it to the outside edge of my yard, at least 80ft from the transmitter which was indoors while the speaker was playing, did not result in any loss of sound or any variation of volume at all. The transmitter works perfectly on the line output from my cable box or DVD/CD player so no headphone amplifier is required to boost the signal which is the case with some competitors. I will be ordering another three for placement around my back yard! Tip: If you get popping noises then change the channel (there are three on the transmitter). Also check if you have an old style cordless phone or wi-fi router that may be causing interference.
I bought one of these to put on the deck and mounted it in the corner of a 10 by 10 canopy with some zip ties, running electric via a string of lights around the canopy frame. The reception is great, although my satellite radio source is only about 20 feet away. I liked it so much I picked up another one for stereo sound. Since I now have an extra transmitter I connected it to the Directv receiver in the basement... no reception problems there either. Its a great setup, just select different channels on the transmitters and use the auto scan to go from radio to directv. Now it's easy to set up the projector via HDMI and watch movies and sporting events in the great outdoors with good sound. These speakers aren't going to wake up the neighbors, but they sound pretty good in a cozy setting like this. I pack them away in the winter, and so far, no issues.
I have 2 of these, I really like them. They are not for high volume applications but if you want good quality background or listening while relaxing they are perfect. They are also not waterproof (they are weather resistant). I take them in at night or when not being used. The wireless range in my application is about a 50 foot radius from the transmitter. Typical usage is to call up a music app on my tablet, plug the transmitter into the headphone jack, place the speakers about 20 feet apart on the deck and enjoy the evening. I have the batteries installed but cannot comment on battery life because I haven't had to replace them. Over the summer I have maybe 20 hours on batteries. Normally I'm running on AC. Overall if you are someone who likes to listen to music at a low to moderate level and can take care of something that shouldn't be left out in the rain. These are great and should last a long time.
