    Anyone ordered the Apple HomePod?

    £319, seems expensive in comparison to a Bose Soundbox. All reviews welcome once it arrives on 09 Feb

    I like Apple stuff.

      Depends what you want from the device i guess, i to like Apple but went for Bose as it was my preference to what i wanted it to do. These gadgets Apple Homepod /Siri and Amazon Echo/ Alexa all seem a bit too big brother for me. The Bose is doing the job quite nicely, sound is absolute quality and didn't expect anything less.

      I have had a Soundbox for a couple of years now and love it. Have given up using my stereo as the sound from the Soundbox is brilliant, battery power lasts well and it is easily moved to wherever I want to listen. My son has Sonos in his kitchen, what a fecking nightmare, regularly drops the signal from the internet and it doesn’t sound as good as the Soundbox even though it has more speakers. Spend so much time fiddling with it that is just makes me angry.

      Apple stuff is always good imo and it sounds like this HomePod could be an upgrade on the Soundbox but I would need it to be much better to splash £319

      Crazy. Overpriced with limited functionality compared to Sonos and others.

      I'm a transitioning Apple fan-boy, typing on a 2013 MacBook Pro with an iPhone 6 next to me.
      The competition is just better imo and I'm steering clear of everything Apple from now on.

      So its 4 times the price of an Amazon Echo.

      What else does it do that the Echo doesn't, to justify that ? Asking for a friend.

      I suggest that the sound quality will probably be much better?

      I’d like to hear a review once someone on here gets one because I am only interested in the speaker sound, I have an echo dot but hardly use it and never for music because I use my phone or iPod linked to the Soundbox for that.
