Good thing it works
Someone else wrote "it works, and it needs to". This about sums things up. I have 4 B&W units working around the house using AirPlay. Sometimes they are wired, sometimes Wifi, two get switched to BT when necessary. Due to the exigencies of AirPlay, the speakers fall off the system too often. If B&W Control didn't work, I'd essentially have wasted $4K. My gripes? It is slow and it doesn't give much info or allow any real configuration of the speakers. Should allow some access to the DSP.
I've had the A5 speaker for about a year and a half now. I've seen a bunch of different variables with regard to the set up as my network has changed frequently during this time. The Bowers and Wilkins control app has delivered on every occasion and has done so consistently.
It works, and it needs to...
I have used this for a couple of years now. It does the job, though I need to use it too often. My Air loses its name, and this app is the easy way to reset it. It also is the fastest way to troubleshoot my Air. I've reset & reconnected it twice in the last month. I'd buy the Air again, but the app is a necessity.
