Mine just stopped working this week, seems the power pack quit delivering sufficient power or something, worked great/sounded great when it was working.

I didn't say you didn't believe me, but in case, I felt I should comment on it further (beyond my personal experience).

Regarding the official failure rate that may or may not exist, there are different ways of measuring it and you can be certain it's even higher than reported.

The point here would then be, it's not really a matter of agreement or disagreement based on failure for one and no failure for another. Factually speaking, Onkyo historically for a long time was able to sell cheaper units because all the parts in the chain/circuit which wouldn't be listed in the specs they'd skimp out on and otherwise had poor implementation.

Yamaha and Onkyo were like opposites. Yamaha skimped out on the main components and in general had poor implementation when it came to sound, but the things would last forever. Onkyo gave you the best quality sound for the buck, but at all levels, the shit wouldn't last you.

Oh, and hell yeah I know it's expensive. They've robbed me of thousands of dollars.
I can appreciate the fact that in your experience you’ve never had anything go bad, but I can ASSURE you every electronics company has a customer service for
a reason, electronics go bad.. some more Than others? Sure.. but you disagreeing with my statement must mean you have your head buried pretty deeply in the sand
Are these compatible with Amazon Alexa?
Curious if you can pair two speakers together, playing a single source?

You should be able to, i have done this when we have hosted parties at our house, I have not tried 2 of these systems, but I don't see why they would be any different

Looking a bit online I found they are FireConnect compatible, which should provide a Sonos type experience. Also, they seem to be on discount from a number of other online retailers who have a return policy, if it not what you are looking for.
Howdy folks,
I just got my NCP-302 yesterday and thought I'd try to give everyone an idea of how it sounds. My first impression is that it sounds "good." It is a decent size speaker in competition with other wireless speakers at the mid-to-high end range (at least, that is my impression). I compare it to offerings like the JBL Extreme or the Marshall Stanmore (among many others).

I don't feel like ANY wireless single-unit speaker is going to live up to audiophile standards. You can't compare it to your Sennheiser HD-650 (or rather the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD-6XX) or your favorite pair of Noble IEMs. It does sound really good, though.

The overall sound quality is pretty impressive when you lower your standards to "$300 Bluetooth speaker." The Wi-Fi input method is noticeably better than Bluetooth. The mids and highs are clean and pleasant. High bass is present and clean, but as you get down into mid and sub bass you notice a drop in power and the types of distortion you expect from a ported speaker enclosure that targets a frequency range that covers "most popular music." Unfortunately this seems to either blank out or distort the bass frequencies in some of my favorite music genres (Drum&Bass, Dubstep, Jungle, for instance).

As a workaround, I have been able to get good response using my phone (LG V10, with its built-in high-end DAC and heaphone amp circuits) headphone jack or through my Soundblaster E5 DAC/amp, an equalizer app, and the AUX input on the speaker.

It is impressively loud in a relatively quiet environment, but I don't have any way of testing in a noisy (like house party?) setting. I get the feeling it would be loud enough to fill one small to mid sized room (think master bedroom or a small living room, but not a large room like a finished half-house basement den or an open-concept living room + kitchen in a large house).

It doesn't have the bass of the JBL Extreme, but it has better overall sound quality (this is based on a fairly old memory of the sound of the Extreme, so I'd suggest trying to get a side-by-side comparison if these two are part of your top picks). I think the Marshall Stanmore is a better choice if you are going to use the AUX or Bluetooth inputs, but the Wi-Fi input method gives a noticeably better sound quality if you are alright with the slightly anemic bass response (take your music selection into consideration here!), it is definitely the best choice in my opinion.

The build quality of this speaker is amazing. It is heavy and solid, and feels like it is made of quality parts. The sturdy enclosure no doubt contributes to the precise sound reproduction. It has the feel of a high quality bookshelf speaker.

The Onkyo Controller app is pretty clunky, though. You need it to set the Wi-Fi SSID and password for any wireless network to which you want to connect the speaker. Using the AUX cable to set the wireless up is a novel idea, but it doesn't offer bi-directional communication, so there is no way for the app to know if setting these values was successful. I ended up having to use my iPod Touch to set up the wireless network because the headphone jack on my phone will randomly trigger the "OK Google" functionality if the cord is jiggled even slightly. Sadly, the app doesn't have any way of knowing it was unable to set the Wi-Fi variables. There are alternate methods to fall back on (ethernet cable or a special Wi-Fi AP to which your phone can connect). Once you get the speaker connected to your wireless network, you never have to deal with that app again (unless you change network or password).

Overall, I'd give it an 8 out of 10, and I'd recommend it to someone looking for a small wireless speaker with the caveat that nothing this small is gonna thump and rock your house. :)
Do these work as rear surround speakers for a Pioneer VSX-1131 Receiver? The receiver supports the Fireconnect wireless speakers standard, but it is not clear if this mode is usable for driver surround speakers.
This does not ship to México, to sad.
SAD but we will still make you pay for it
let us in europe order with an decent shipping cost!
WillowTheMovie
THIS!
WillowTheMovie
Yes! We need shipping to Europe!
Does this work with bluetooth as well? It shows "bluetooth" on top of the speaker in one of the pictures, but it's not listed in the features.

It does work with bluetooth as well. Found this: "Dual-band 5 GHz/2.4 GHz Wi-Fi for Stable wireless connectivity plus Bluetooth technology"
JakeTheSnake2322
OK I thought so, I guess I just missed that part. Thanks!
There is a typo in the listed dimensions. I think "4 3.2 inches" should really be 4.2 inches. It doesn't help that inches and centimeters aren't listed in the same order.
How's the audio on this speaker?

I recently got one on Amazon (for $89 :/ ) and it sounds phenomenal. Would definitely recommend it.
