You say "The LV2e costs £700 which is by far the black mark against the system as a whole... Against this is Audio Pro's own aforementioned WF100 Wireless Transmitter and RX100 receiver bundle, the latter of which has the same integrated Burr Brown DAC, costs just £150 and brings identical functionality to any speaker system. Armed with this the remaining £550 could buy speakers of arguably even better quality and to the exact size and specification you desire."
Not really...you still need a power amplifier, which could eat £150-200 out of the £550 savings you indicate.
Well, I have been researching wireless speakers as I'm looking to buy some, hence reading this. And I have listened to a bunch of them. I view proclamations of 'top class system' and 'superb audio performance' with skepticism. The Audio Pro are 'superb' - REALLY??? Not IMHO!
I have heard these and while not awful, they are far from 'superb'. The bass is limited and loose, the upper end hardens up on female vocals, particularly when you turn the volume up and they fail to excite - not bad, just not great if audio quality is what you care about. The Dynaudio Xeo are much better; and yes - they cost more. There is also the Moos Mini Aero which look like they could be sensational, possibly better than the Xeo. Again, costs more, but then the really good stuff usually does.
My point here is that 'superb' should only be reserved for worthy products. Based on what I heard, the Audio Pro are worthy of 'decent' but definitely not 'superb'. If you want superb you need to look elsewhere.
Simple, sleek, delicate, lossless, ultra-low latency, wireless, integrated amp. The sound is not 100% perfect, but it's very very very impressive considering the size. It seems to lack some low mid-range. The sender is very small compared to it's competitors, and doesn't weigh much. Works instantly with Linux, Windows and OSX.
