A few teething troubles with Apple Airport...
I had this delivered to my work, and demo'd it to my colleagues - who all thought very highly of it.
Very easy to set up following the quick start guide (~5 mins).
Great sound, with plenty of volume (for me).
I then took it home and just could not get the airplay streaming to work reliably - cutting out very frequently. If I hadn't already seen the speaker working I'd have assumed it faulty.
The most obvious difference was my home wireless network was purely apple based (2 airport express & 2 extreme), whereas at work, wireless is non-apple.
Turns out the radio mode "802.11a/n - 802.11b/g" is not compatible with this speaker.
So, make sure your airport extreme Radio Mode is set to "802.11a - 802b/g".
If you only have one airport product, turning off the 802.11n mode may be too great a sacrifice for you, in which case consider looking elsewhere.
It may be possible to work round this - I just don't know how yet.
After I finally got it going, it worked flawlessly.

This Fidelio speaker is a great buy. It has replaced my ageing surround sound and its room filling sound means that I don't miss the sub woofer at all.
The air play option is very good and I use both my iPhone and iPad to play music. The only downside being that it is often a bit fiddley to tune into but generally speaking once connected it produces rich clear sound.

Spent 6 hours trying to get it to work with iPhone 4s but it crashed the wifi network every time I tried to play a song.
After much googling I found it has a software glitch which Philips are trying to sort
Works fine with my iPad
It really should say on the website not compatible with 4s
