Pioneer A3 XW-SMA3-W review

 

A key feature for the Pioneer A3 XW-SMA3-W is AirPlay, Apple's propriety wireless audio and video streaming solution. This ensures that once the Pioneer A3 is connected to your home network it can accept music from any iOS or Mac OS X device. Bouncing...

The Pioneer A3 is a good sounding speaker, with AirPlay and other wireless compatibility. The water-proofing and battery are both a nice touch, and it’s great for taking into the garden. This makes up for the sound quality, which is okay, but not...

Pioneer XW-SMA3 Portable AirPlay Speaker

 

Portable with lots of wireless connectivity, but audio could be more dynamic.

Wide variety of wireless connectivity, Up to five hour battery life, Plenty of bass

Lack of detail in high frequencies, Dull design, cheap build materials, Not very loud

Pioneer XW-SMA3-K

 

Portable, network-savvy and easy to use, but it needs more entertainment value

Inoffensive sound ; portable ; easy to set up and use ; plenty of network features

Not the most exciting listen ; needs to go louder (especially if you' ; re outside)

We can’t totally recommend the SMA3. We love its ease of use – and its portability – but it needs more excitement and punch to really seal the deal.

Pioneer XW-SMA3 Review: Awesome Go-Anywhere AirPlay Speakers

 

Most AirPlay speakers are not very good at what they're supposed to do: stream music wirelessly between devices and make your life easier in the process. The liberation from wires tends to come with a monstrous configuration headache. But the sound can...
