It has been a long time since I purchased the Audio Engine AW1, but I was having trouble with the Sony AV receiver I had purchased for the home theater and ended up waiting a LONG time for the replacement receiver to arrive. (original receiver was sent in for warranty repairs - took a long time - returned not fixed - shop went out of their way to make it right, but it took months. Now using a new receiver of a different brand.)
So, now I have the opportunity to try the Audio Engine AW1 with a receiver that actually has output! I connected the transmitting unit in the equipment room off the home theater and the receiving unit upstairs in the living room. Our house has standard weight concrete floors so getting the signal through was a bit of a challenge, but I found a hole where some wiring was going up through the slab and I pushed the transmitting unit up through that opening a bit.
It works well! I can turn on music in the H.T. and then wander throughout the house and it continues seamlessly from one area to another. It does what I wanted it to do!
I am not an audiophile, but the sound bears up to careful listening on my part.
