The Sony SRS-X9 speaker wasn’t three years in the making by accident. It’s a carefully considered product, and a multi-talented one at that, all wrapped up in a stylish package.

Aside from high-res audio, the SRS-X9 supports just about every wireless feature you can imagine, including Bluetooth, aptX, NFC, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, and DLNA. There's also a built-in USB charging port, plus a minijack input for connecting other devices.

Insanely good sound from a compact brick-like unit, deep bass and detailed highs with good stereo separation and soundstage. Plays just about any format you throw at it, and works better and more reliably with AirPlay than Apple's own AirPort Express in my experience. Well worth the investment.

Used for Spotify MP3 320kb streaming in my bedroom. The sound quality is weak compared side to side with my 10y old mini stereo system, it is real disappointment. For this price I would expect much better sound and stability of wifi connection. Only BT seems to be actually working, Wifi AirPlay...
