The Wren v5US is a cream-of-the-crop speaker that, like its predecessor the Wren v5, blends the best audio engineering with unmatched connectivity features and luxurious craftsmanship suited to every kind of decor.
This speaker offers incredible near-universal device compatibility and works with both AirPlay and Play-Fi to allow for wireless streaming from Apple and Android devices as well as PCs running Mac or Windows. The ability to wirelessly transmit high-fidelity audio from smartphones, tablets and computers with zero impact on sound quality is pretty incredible. The system is so intricately engineered that multiple users can stream different audio to speakers in different rooms via their separate mobile devices.
Connectivity is all well and good of course but sound quality is of fundamental importance and this is where the Wren v5US really shines. Listen to any kind of music and you'll be able to easily distinguish between each instrument and each note. Even the busiest and most noisy forms of music -- techno, heavy metal -- don't sound muddled in this speaker, which produces a wide and perfectly balanced sound that isn't too bassy, too middly or too high.
As a bonus, the speaker has a gorgeous look and feel, using quality wood cabinetry and a sleek, minimalist design that balances straight lines and curves.
All in all, this really is one of the best speakers out there and it's difficult to find any flaws with it seeing as how it combines rich audio with a marvelous design and unbeatable connectivity features.
