We’ve had very good luck with these controller based systems.  Apple products and Airplay have worked well.  I watched my guy airplay from one hotspot to another and the hiccup was hardly noticeable.  The system uses…

Hi Mike, this is Martin with Luxul Support, after some digging I was not able to find any current or past cases that you have opened in regards to the Controller. I would be more than happy to assist you with any issues you may be experiencing…

Cool space.  I’m wondering how they deal with the acoustics for the “Home Theatre” area?
Mark Shapiro (Posted on 07/01/15, 11:32 AM)
I agree with dg123, performance is horrible. In addition, the roaming is the worst I ever seen, sometimes it can’t even connect to the next WAP. Luxul support didn’t have an answer.  Also, no one should be installing 802.11N…

I’m very interested if anyone has direct experience with this Luxul controller/AP package for use with Apple mobile products.  We recently upgraded a residential network with Luxul products incl. XWS-2500 kit and so far it has…

Marketing and customer farming at is best. Always find it highly amusing when people flock like sheep onto the “high resolution audio” bandwagon. What high resolution audio does, very effectively is, use more storage…

Remember, Don, this survey covers only the CE Pro 100, which skews to the high end.
Don (Posted on 06/28/15, 12:48 AM)
This has much more to do with profitability and price than performance. I love mac stuff, but it’s gotten so expensive that it’s out of reach for most people. I bought a mac preamp when I was a college student in 1972. What college…
