Pioneer A3 XW-SMA3-K Review

 

Incredible balance and clarity, Powerful sound, Easy portability, Cool minimalist design

Limited stereo field, Some wireless connection interruptions, A bit pricey

It’s obvious by the traces of Andrew Jones’s signature all over the SMA3 packaging that Pioneer is proud of their acclaimed speaker engineer, and they should be. The sound the SMA3 reproduces on most styles of music is nothing short of phenomenal....

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...

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

Expert review by:

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.

Not enough bass; setup was tricky

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...
