Only after wiring directly to the input of the left speaker from my iMac 27, disconnecting and reconnecting the cable between the speakers, then repeating the wired speaker pairing procedure, was I able to get it playing properly from both speakers.
It sounds awesome now, but... I gave up trying to configure my Echo Dot via bluetooth with a pair of these speakers.
Lastly, I would recommend that if you are wiring this setup, you buy fresh quality cables rather than pulling some old cable out of your collection.
On sound quality I would give it 5 stars, but the poor documentation and setup problems bring it down to an overall 3 stars for me.
After a great deal of frustration, I was ultimately successful setting this up in two separate situations. Both are 2 speaker fully wired setups; one from my iMac and the other from an Echo Dot. The Dot setup started as a single speaker setup but adding a second for stereo made for a dramatic improvement in overall sound quality. You will have to repeat the pairing for the speakers if there is a temporary loss of power to them so be sure to document whatever method you successfully used.
Another issue when you are using a fully wired setup is that when the speakers are without input signal for a period, they go into standby and when you resume the music again, the volume has to be reset on the right speaker because the volume control is by bluetooth and the input signal is via cable.
Bottom line.....I am willing to live with the quirks even though they can be a P.I.T.A. For the price, nothing else comes close.
I received the following reply from B&O support in response to a question:
"BeoPlay S3 speakers in stereo mode always adjust volume via Bluetooth (wired or wireless - max 4m between them); Line-in sense signal and start-up speakers.
The Bluetooth communication between the speakers (max 4meters) may be corrupted by other 2.4GHz communication from Phones with BT active, 2.4GHz routers, wireless mouse and keyboards (2.4GHz) etc. The software update 9.3.1 to BT4.2 and ADK4.0 has improved the communication speed 2.5times - this has proven resistance towards dropouts in harsh environments as offices with several routers and other BT equipment. Update your speaker via the Beoplay Software Updater downloaded from beoplay.com/support.
As for adjusting the auto-standby time this is not possible for the time being, but we have registered your request for change and shall return to you, should any such possibility become available."
I hung up my “audiophile” hat a while back because life is too short to fret about cables and power conditioners and trying wring the last minutiae of soundstage from my system - I now just sit back and enjoy. That being said, after 40 years of purchasing components, I know good sound when I hear it and the S3 delivers and then some.
I’ve read (and watched) some disparaging reviews Regarding the S3 and this is what I have found out from my own experience: If one feeds crappy music to the S3, that is exactly what one hears. The S3 is exceedingly accurate. Don’t expect a low bit rate mp3 file or, say, Pandora on its free stream to magically come alive and sound great. But give the S3 Tidal hi-fi or Spotify hi rez files and one will be greatly rewarded. Also, do not expect booming bass as the S3 does not try to compensate for its 4” woofer by boosting the lower frequencies. The S3 is rated down to 42hz and it drops off sharply after that. Fortunately, there is a line out so one can add a (quality) subwoofer if so desired. I can only imagine what a pair set up in a 2.1 configuration would sound like (pretty awesome, I am sure) but for now a single S3 is more than enough for my needs.
At its original $300 asking price, I would give the S3 a hearty recommendation. At $150, I defy anyone to find a better sounding, self-powered speaker, it is that good. At any price lower, it is an absolute steal!
Quick edit: Not much has been said about the Beoplay app. Not only does it control volume, but the sound signature can be tweaked to a degree. I prefer the factory “flat” setting, but if a recording is too bright (not the S3’s fault!) it can, through the app be adjusted to a warmer sound signature. The converse is true. Note that the app does not “boost” frequencies like traditional bass and treble controls but “shapes” the sound by reducing certain frequencies through the onboard DSP.
