I think it's a little over priced at $400 from Amazon but I'd still purchase it again. It was a breeze to setup using their quick setup guide. It sounds good and does get nice and loud. The only other gripe I have (other than price) is that I wish it was able to cache songs. I'm not sure if it has any built-in memory for caching but if it doesn't it needs it, and if it does it needs more. If you don't have good/great WiFi signal from where your Airplay device is this system will cut out. But, if you have great WiFi signal this system is really great.
