A great speaker for using Spotify in your home
I ve had my Philips Spotify multi room speaker for nearly a week now and can already say this is a great speaker system. The speaker feels well built and is really easy to use. The styling of the design is really simple and discreet so the speaker doesn't look out of place, which I really like.
It's good that it can be controlled through the companion app or by using the buttons on the top of the speaker
Through the Philips speaker set app, which I use on my phone, I can set up my speakers and you can create a home network. More speakers are added to your home system through the app. Initial set up is really easy because the speaker set app walks you through the set up in minutes.
Philips and Spotify have really made good use of Spotify connect, which means you can choose your music in your Spotify app, it starts playing on your multi room speakers and you can carry on using your phone as normal, taking calls, and using other apps. You can even switch your phone off and music will carry on playing. A really cool feature is that you can stop your music and go out. When you get back, you hit play on the speaker and pick up where you left off.
Or you can switch music over from your phone to speaker after being out in the time it takes to unbutton your jacket.
The sound quality is really great from the 2.5 inch full range drivers and the bass ports at the back of the speaker. The volume goes louder than I really needed it and there's enough range in the bass and treble, which can be changed in the app , for you to really set the sound to how you like it.
I would recommend this system for people who like using Spotify in their home.

The perfect solution to my Spotify problem
The Philips Spotify multiroom speaker SW700M has revolutionised the way I listen to my music. My Spotify tunes were previously confined to my lack lustre laptop speakers, but now they are free, clear and loud in any room I place the speaker. The speaker itself is clean and looks the part in all settings. Thanks to its size it can also be taken easily in a bag for music on the go. The instructions on set up were clear and was far less demanding than I expected. Within two minutes of opening the box I was listening to my music. My worry when I purchase any speaker is whether the bass stands up to the test as I enjoy drum and bass and hip hop. Sure, it's not going to beat my sub in that department, but the overall sound is rich and full. A quick test on varying types of music proved the speaker was equally capable of handling classical music as it was punk. Initial thoughts are I want to save up and get a few more so I can have them throughout the house. I also work from home and have to take calls etc, so being able to control everything from my phone is an added bonus. Looking forward to the reaction it gets when we next have a party. It's also very cool to be able to come in to your home having Spotify playing through your phone and headphones and switch immediately to the speaker. A very happy customer.

Excellent Product For Spotify users
This is so simple to set up, sounds great and is great value.
I have a 700 and its awesome, sounds great. I am planning on buying another 700 and a 750 to go in my living room.
I am a Spotify premium user and Connect is a game changer. Since i got the product on Friday i have used it everyday.
I would say the 750 is better for bass lovers, however the 700 holds its own perfect for a 1 bed flat. I took it to a friends house party on saturday and it was awesome.
