Hi Colin

I'm still using WiFi if I am close to the house, but if I went down to the
lower level of the garden, I would lose WiFi.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown

Hi Jackie,
When you take it into the garden, our you still using your home wi-fi signal
or am I missing something?
Thanks

Hi Joe

It looks just like a radio, but it is a speaker.  You can use WiFi to access
the Alexa service, you can use Bluetooth to pair it with your phone or other
device, and its controls and buttons are along the top.  The app is pretty
crap to be honest, but once you set it up, you don't really need it much.
Its battery life is pretty impressive at around 15 hours, and I like it for
taking into the garden or the bathroom.  It costs £125 from Amazon or £150
from Steve Nutt.  If you have two (which I don't,) you can pair them to make
a stereo set like you can with Sonos.  The Sonos setup is still my favourite
though, I always have it streaming music when I am in my office during the
day.  But for portability, the E5 is a cracker!

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown
