Fantastic system, great investment. Absolutely love my musaic system – i have the mp10 as well as the musaic mp5 music player – wireless smart home speaker for multi-room music streaming – black/silver and use them every day. My mp10 is in my sitting room and the mp5 is in my bedroom next door, so i can have music playing in both rooms at the same time and wander between. I mostly stream music from spotify but also use the internet radio service a lot – it’s pretty cool that i can listen to new zealand stations as a kiwi living in the uk. The mp10 sounds fantastic and looks really nice – i love the touch buttons on the top too as i can start playing the radio without having to use my phone. I think i’ll get one for my kitchen next – just trying to decide which one.
Bought this having heard bose and sonos equivalents. Easy to set up and spotify is truly incredible through this and the mp5. Bought the mp5 a week after the mp10 arrived. The 10 sits in the lounge with the 5 in the kitchen. Easy to ”group’ the players together for a party atmosphere. I control mine from either my samsung galaxy s4, samsung tab a or my kindle hdx. Seriously they are brilliant with a very straightforward app to allow complete control. You won’t be disappointed, love musaic.

I have had both the mp10 and mp5 for some time. The sound is great and easy to operate using the app. It seems if you want to play music stored on say your ipad or iphone you have to keep the app as the running one. You cannot for example set it up to play music from your ipad and then go off and do some work in word. Eventually the music drops out and you have to go back to the musaic app to get it going again. Also streaming from itunes on your desktop is not so easy. Playing streamed music from the internet or using internet radio is fine as once the connection is made to the internet it keeps it playing. It is playing music stored on your iphone or ipad is the problem.
I have bought a number of audio streaming devices, some of which i have successfully synced even though many people posted on amazon that they found it impossible to. However, out of all of the speakers i have tried, this speaker was the best sounding of all when connected via bluetooth. Zero noise interference while waiting between songs or during low volume sections, such as you get when listening to classical music or radio dramas. Unfortunately, i had to return it as nothing i did would make it sync with my wi-fi network so i’m unable to judge how good it may have sounded had i been able to connect it. I may buy another next year and give it a second chance, especially if the price is lowered as the sound quality really is that good via bluetooth which is why i still give it 4 stars. But at nearly £280, it is a very expensive way to listen to highly compressed music files.
The mp10 has better bass, feels more solid and has some really. I’ve come to the musaic range having been a long-time sonos user and i’m a convert. Physically, the mp10 has better bass, feels more solid and has some really neat extra functions like the ability to charge an attached usb device (your phone or tablet, perhaps). The bluetooth function and the choice of wifi or ethernet networking is good to have. One of my favourite features is the possibility of using any allplay compatible app to control it – you can use doubletwist or compatible apps for other allplay devices eg from panasonic or lenco, and of course spotify and windows 10. You can synchronise rooms just like sonos (face it, you’re comparing the two) but this player goes beyond – you can also control your home lighting (philips hue for example) and other neat smarthome features using ifttt. If that sounds a little bit too jetsons, don’t worry, you don’t have to – and the musaic has features for you too. Unlike the play:5 it has physical controls on the top so you can assign four presets for music – i have it set to my favourite internet radio stations. It will play music from your phone, from your network and from your subscribed services, and it has a really neat feature built into the android app (probably ios too) which displays the various music charts and top songs – you simply tap on one and it will show you all the internet radio stations currently playing it. If you’re connected via bluetooth or audio cable it can also share the input to other musaic units (i also have an mp5 in another room).
Musaic MP5 – Wireless Smart Speaker for Multi-Room Music Streaming – Black/Silver : The sound is fantastic, the mp10 is more than capable of filling. Our previous wireless streamer died a few months ago, so i began to look into the various options available. I’ve spent the last few months reading reviews and visiting stores so that i could listen to the devices in various settings, sonos, bose and naim to name a few. They all either lacked a feature i needed, or the sound they rendered just wasn’t quite right. I then happened to come across a review for some new devices on the market by a british company called musaic. The reviews spoke volumes, so i purchased the mp10 for living room. The device itself is very user friendly and to me has a retro, yet modern look about it. The app installed flawlessly onto an android device, and quickly navigated me through setting up player. Adding my own content was simple as this is sat on a server running asset upnp. In addition, we can effortlessly use our spotify accounts to stream music.
