Blootooth needs re-paring after every 30 minutes as the units powers down completely. Very irritating as this defeats the object of a wireless speaker; ease of use, functionaility. Contacted CA who admitted this, but blamed Apple's IOS system for power saving. This, I have to say is not accurate (although I don't blame them for passing the problem over), as I have a sony wireless that uses the same bluetooth connectivity which has never required any repeat pairing of devices. I contacted Richer Sounds who are taking the unit back. I can only assume that What Hi-Fi's review of this unit stemmed from the fact that they did not test it for longer than 30 minutes, otherwise they would have experienced the same irritating problem. Otherwise a great little unit, perfect in many aspects, but as the unit fails to remember devices after 30 minutes (certainly Apple devices anyway) its a unit that has failed on the most fundamental element. A great shame.
Beware this unit moves of it's own accord when listening to moderately bassy music. Had mine 3 hours and it's just fallen off the mantelpiece!
On the plus side, the build quality is good as it's still in one piece and didn't miss a beat.
CA are aware of this issue as evidenced by their own FAQs but have failed to put a warning in the instructions.
In response to the previous poster my MBA breaks up with this and with every other bluetooth speaker whereas my Xperia Z works perfectly. It may be an Apple issue...
On the strength of this review bought the Minx Go.
Agree the sound is good given the size of the device....but with my iPhone 5 and Macbook the sound seems to break up after an hour or so.
I'm in dialogue with CA, hope there's a fix.

You might suffer a few app grumbles but you won’t get better-sounding streaming anywhere else
Not so very far from the last word in external digital-to-analogue converters
The gorgeous retro design is hard to resist, but the TEAC fails to deliver an engaging and musical performance at this price
