Particularly uninspiring sound. Huge sound delays


Bought 2 of these for xmas as a present for my Daughter the sound is very flat and volume levels are poor. After connecting to her laptop the huge sound delays make watching any videos impossible. An all round disappointment. I'll stick with Sonos....
