August Audio Fest at Best Buy
Are you a music fanatic? My whole family is, and it doesn’t really matter which kind…something is always playing at my house. And now that it’s August Audio Fest at Best Buy? You better believe there is a family trip to the local store for a test drive!
We received a Samsung WAM-551 M5-Wireless Audio Speaker and a Hub and the race was on, trying to figure out where to put them and who was going to try them out first.
Dad won, after taking input from Mom of course. The hub is in the office so it can be controlled mostly by the adults LOL And the speaker went onto the shelf in the kitchen/dining area which also opens up towards our family room for maximum entertainment.
I must say it was easy to set up and get the tunes going! I was able to connect to it from my smartphone through Bluetooth and started streaming my music within seconds. And once we start adding speakers, we can pick and choose what music plays where, based on who is nearby.
The speaker is great! You can:
- Easily create a multiroom audio system
- Control All Your Favorite Music with One App
- Connect Wirelessly to your Wi-Fi to Enjoy Incredible Stereo Sound
- Add More Speakers to Listen in Multiple Rooms* (additional speakers and hub required)
