August Audio Fest Is The Best At Best Buy With Smokin' Samsung Deals 8/3-8/30 #AudioFest

Samsung rocks the music world. We should know. We just spent the whole weekend ChiILin' in Chi, IL with Samsung at the Lollapalooza Galaxy Stage & owners lounge! Back home the Samsung love fest continues. Our whole family has Galaxy S phones and we've been moving on up from early adapters with the original S series through the 3's and now 4's.

So we were SO excited to be chosen to review the Samsung M5 Bluetooth Wireless speaker on Black Model: WAM550/ZA.($299.99) and the Samsung Wireless Speaker Hub on Model:WAM250/ZA.($49.99).

What We're ChiILin' With: 

Samsung Shape™ Wireless Audio: a new and exciting way to listen to, share and experience music.

Where it's at... We got Bluetooth speakers and a speaker HUB...

Samsung Shape Wireless Audio is an expandable system – now music can follow you anywhere in your house. Play one song in any or all rooms, or different songs in different rooms from any number of speakers. Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® connectivity lets you send music from your library or favorite App straight to your AC powered speaker.

Control volume, streaming services and playlists, or switch to a speaker in a different room. However you enjoy your music, Samsung Shape™ Wireless Audio makes it happen.

Top content providers include: Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, tunein, amazon cloudplayer, tracks so you'll have no shortage of options and can enjoy YOUR favorite tunes. 

Our Take:

1. Super simple set up. If you're not tech savvy, Samsung's for you. With the HUB just plug and play. The speakers will find your wifi (so you don't have to) and voila... you have an awesome sounding system!

 2. You can group or ungroup your speakers easily to play the same or different sources simultaneously. This is GREAT for our family, since we now have 2 music lovin' adult, a teen and a tween who are developing their own music taste.

3. Volume can be adjusted on your device or on the speakers. 

4. The speakers and HUB are big enough for room filling sound and small enough to easily move around and they have a small stand so they can be tipped upright for a slim, space saving placement.

5. You can easily play off of a lap top via Bluetooth, a pad or cell phone. Streaming sites work great, as does your own library of tunes.

1.  The app occasionally freezes up and though the music keeps playing, you can't skip anything, adjust the volume, etc. unless you shut it down and restart it.

2.  There's no AUX jack to play any devices like an older ipod that doesn't have Bluetooth or wifi compatibility.

Overall, the Samsung Shape™ Wireless Audio system is a stellar set up for the price.  It sounds great, it's easy to install, and we've been thrilled with it.
