Ratings and Reviews
I have been considering multi-room system for a while. I invested in a HT-MT500 and 1 ZR5 to start with. Happy with the sound produced BUT the app... really?!.. how can you provide something so basic and limited?
The app, doesn’t find the speakers all the time, you cannot manage easily separate room and separate music, The Music app from apple is not seeing the speakers, tune in same, sound cloud same.
Everything looks old fashion and limited in term UX. I’m really considering put 200£ more and change for Sonos.. unless you are telling me that a major update is coming.. are you? When? With what changes?
This app is useless. I bought a Sony SRS - XB41 wireless speaker.
You connect your speaker to your iPhone or iPad. No problem there.
When you open the app, it shows you’re connected and you can use all the features fine.
Say, you flick off the app to use another app, when you come back to the song app,
there will be another device which says “ Needs to be setup “.
So now you have 2 devices showing. The one you’re connected and the other saying need to set up.
The connected one will be greyed out. If you click the connected device, the app will attempt to connect again even though my music is still playing through the speaker.
It then says please connect to Bluetooth.
Whilst in this state, you’re unable to communicate with the speaker using phone.
You can’t lower volume, skip track etc etc.
When it says please connect the speaker to Bluetooth, I go settings, Bluetooth and then look at the available devices.
As expected, it shows my speaker is connected to my phone.
If I select the device which is already connected, nothing happens as it’s already connected.
Now, when I go back to the Sony app, it’s working.
Basically, everything I leave the app it’s working, when I go back the app is saying need to set up.
I have to constantly keep going Bluetooth settings to reconnect even if it’s still connected & playing my music.
Get a grip Sony.
Very very poor.
5.11 update has broken the app!!!
It was working fine, until I updated to version 5.11 on my iPhone 6+ and now it is terrible! I tried deleting and reinstalling, rebooting my phone, all made no difference.
Every letter when you type in the library search field takes ages to register, as if it is in slow motion, but even worse it is not picking up all of the songs in my iTunes library - useless! Navigating around the whole of the app is jerky, slow and laggy, everything was working fine until you released this version, clearly something has gone very wrong with this update. I’m very disappointed and worried that, having spent thousands of pounds on several of these srs speakers, I now find that I can’t use them until you fix this mess. I can’t even roll back to the previous version which was working. Come on Sony, someone please sort this out as a matter of urgency!!!
