How to connect a Pioneer XW-SMA3 AirPlay speaker to WPA Personal wifi network?

Hi :-)

I Have Pioneer XW-SMA3 AirPlay speaker system but have so-far been unable to connect it to my home WiFi Network. The speakers come with an Ethernet port so I am able to connect it via that and configure it, but nothing I do will connect it to the wireless.

My home network is served up from an Apple Airport Extreme secured via WPA2 Personal (all my other devices connect to this just fine including the Wii, iPhones, friends' windows boxes etc).

When I configure the speakers I am given the following security options: WPA2-PSK(AES).
However when I choose WPA2-PSK(AES) (which I am told is the equivalent to Apple's WPA2 Personal and reboot, the speakers still don't connect and when I reconnect via Ethernet the config shows me that it's selected WPA-PSK(AES) instead.

I've tried dumbing my network security down to WPA/WPA2 Personal but that made no difference, and I've also tried selecting the WPA2-PSK(TKIP) option in the speakers' config but when it reboots it shows as WPA-PSK(TKIP) instead, analogous to the AES setting.

I have also tried updating the speakers' firmware to the latest version just to be sure but it made no difference.

I've triple checked the obvious things like the SSID name and the password.

I lodged a technical support request with Pioneer but got no answer, and so today I phoned them and they told me that “We are not networking specialists. We can't help you.” which is utterly useless. I am hoping someone here has succeeded in connecting these speakers to their WiFi. Googling the problem gives me no sensible results.
