    I think it's a little over priced at $400 from Amazon but I'd still purchase...read more

    The Klipsch Gallery G-17 Air is a wonderful-sounding wireless speaker dock, and a recent iOS update irons out some AirPlay streaming issues we experienced during testing.

    We loved the full, meaty sound and high-class detail the G-17 pulled off, especially considering its compact size.

    While it packs an impressive punch in terms of sound performance and feature set, the G-17 is more expensive than an iPad and doesn't seem worth its $550 price tag.

    Laboured AirPlay connection, a bargain bucket remote control and near mono sound reproduction it means Klipsch must go back to the drawing board… or at the very least slash the price dramatically.

    These are one of the best AirPlay speakers you can buy right now--they don't take up much room, produce warm, pleasing sound on most genres of music and look pretty good, too.

    With the G-17, Klipsch has built a stylish, powerful AirPlay speaker system that’s easy to recommend. AirPlay enthusiasts with an audiophile streak won’t be disappointed.
