“She shall have music wherever she goes.” That kind of describes me now, thanks to Best Buy’s August Audio Fest and the Samsung SHAPE Wireless Audio System. If you’ve been eyeing a good sound system for your home or your kids going away for school, now is a good time to start shopping. No Best Buy coupon is needed as deals on audio are good throughout the month of August. I’ll share more about later but, for now, here’s one system you might want to add to your shopping list.

Samsung SHAPE Wireless Audio System

I’m home A LOT. Whether I’m busy with my daughter’s homeschooling or blogging up a storm, much of my time is spent in our apartment. To keep the atmosphere from being overwhelmingly dreary and to keep us going, having some tunes to move to helps immensely. However, the minute we move to the kitchen, bathroom, laundry area, or back bedroom, we’re out of earshot of our favorite songs. Not so with the Samsung SHAPE Wireless Audio System we have now.

The Samsung SHAPE Wireless Audio System allows you to wirelessly connect several speakers to broadcast your music in different rooms (multi-room). All that’s needed is a Samsung Speaker Hub and two or more speakers. The hub is super tiny and plugs straight into your internet modem.

The step-by-step directions included with the hub are easy to follow and it’s basically plug and play. Next, tap the NFC patch in the manual to download the Samsung SHAPE Audio app (must use an NFC-enabled device) or grab it from the Google Play or iTunes store. The app lets you control the music sent through the hub using your smartphone or tablet.

Setup was quick and easy. Pairing with the speakers was also simple. Using the app, I was able to name each of the speakers. This makes it a whole lot easier when choosing to use one speaker, grouping them together to play at the same time, or playing different music on each speaker. The only thing that took a long time and was kind of cumbersome was waiting for the devices to download software updates. I also noticed that, when pausing the music, there was a delay between each speaker stopped/began.

Samsung M5 Speakers

The Samsung M5 speakers are great though. When they first arrived, Frans asked, “Are they heavy?” According to him, high quality speakers have to be heavy (maybe because of the components needed). Sound is excellent – clear and unmuffled but with decent bass.

You can position the speakers horizontally or vertically (using the attached stand). They look sleek and I like the shape. Controls are touch sensitive so you only need to swipe the metal ring to adjust the volume or tap the audio source or mute icons.

The M5 speakers come in white or black. We ended up receiving the white speakers which, unfortunately, stick out like sore thumbs on our dark furniture. Both speakers came with a hairline crack near the auxiliary  input, likely from the plug being screwed in too tightly. It’s a bummer but at least it’s in the back of the speaker so no one but us will know it’s there.

You can stream music through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth from your device , using radio signals, or by means of services like Amazon Cloud Player, Pandora, and Spotify Premium. Using the speakers without the hub is also possible. See how easy it is to do this:

The Samsung SHAPE Wireless system with the Samsung Speaker Hub and M5 multi-room speakers are fantastic. It can get costly, though, with each speaker being around $300 (although they’re on sale for $250 during Audio Fest). However, this would be a more cost-effective option for bigger or multiple-level houses since you can get an additional speaker for each area versus a whole new audio system.

There are plenty more audio deals to choose from if this one does not fit your needs. You can even head into the store and try them out for yourself before you buy. Events will be happening in-store all month and discounts can be found on portable Bluetooth speakers, headphones, home audio, and even car electronics. Hurry and enjoy the Best Buy Audio Fest going on now until August 30th!

I know that nursery rhyme! Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross, To see a fine lady upon a white horse, Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes, And she shall have music wherever she goes!

Tess August 7, 2014 - 11:18 am

I like that you can go in and try it before you buy it. Many times I bought stuff that I wish I had known how it worked before I bought it

Jaime August 7, 2014 - 11:44 am

We need a system for our bottom floor. We don’t have a working stereo/sound system and it makes parties fairly lame.

Liz Mays August 7, 2014 - 11:53 am

I like the idea of adding on for various areas of the house. The components are expensive, but doable a little at a time.

Robin (Masshole Mommy) August 7, 2014 - 12:00 pm

I do a lot of my shopping at Best Buy. They definitely have a lot of great gift ideas!

Susanna @Zealous Mom August 7, 2014 - 12:08 pm

These look awesome! I want them so badly. I love playing my iPod when we have friends over, but the little speaker we have is pathetic.

Debi August 7, 2014 - 12:19 pm

Samsung products are so great. Best Buy is one of my favorite places to shop and I will for sure check out Audio Fest.

Pam August 7, 2014 - 4:47 pm

I love the look of these speakers. They are very modern. Too bad they do not match your furniture.

My Hubs loves Audio Fest! I like the shape of that speaker, very unusual.

Everyday Living with Chrys August 8, 2014 - 6:52 am

That is pretty cool. I am not super familiar with Samsung products. I do have a pc monitor that is Samsung. I do love Best Buy though and their awesome rewards program.

Christie August 8, 2014 - 7:40 am

Looks like a powerful little system. I love the modern design

This is such a great little entertainment system. I can think of many uses for it in our home for sure.

Rosey August 8, 2014 - 11:37 am

Our DVD player has swipe technology like that… it took awhile to get used to it, but I like it now. And I’m with you on the shape of this one, it’s very sleek looking. I like it.

krystalskitsch August 8, 2014 - 12:52 pm

I just got a new bluetooth speaker, and it is SO handy. I love it!

Tiffany Cruz August 8, 2014 - 2:13 pm

I would love to be able to listen to music from my phone, that’s it. I need some speakers. I like that you can save money without a coupon.

Theresa August 8, 2014 - 3:52 pm

Ooh, I need this for my Halloween parties! The speaker we use is so crummy and doesn’t get very loud, so the kids really have to listen closely for when the music starts and stops!

Amber Conaway August 8, 2014 - 5:34 pm

Wow that looks like an amazing audio system! I have been looking for a good system, I will have to check this out!

Ashley - Embracing Homemaking August 8, 2014 - 8:56 pm

That looks incredible! Wow, my husband would love this!

Cyndi @ MrsWrightWrites August 8, 2014 - 8:59 pm

Looks nice! My husband won a bluetooth speaker at work the other day, and it’s been proving useful. It isn’t anywhere close to as big as that one though.

Marina @ Mommy Snippets August 8, 2014 - 9:04 pm

Nice speakers! I love the quality of Samsung products.

Kendra August 8, 2014 - 9:21 pm

This would be a nice upgrade for your house that you can move with you. I’d love to try it outside. That could be perfect for making a party magic.

Anne - Mommy Has to Work August 9, 2014 - 8:09 am

I’m in love with all things Samsung!

HilLesha August 9, 2014 - 3:32 pm

Audio Fest has some great deals, the Shape looks great!

Barbie's Beauty Bits August 10, 2014 - 6:17 am

I too like that you can go in and test before you buy. I like Best Buy as they price match and are much more helpful then some of their competitions. I have a Samsung phone and have to go to BEST Buy today, so I’ll check this out!

Kiwi August 10, 2014 - 2:48 pm

OMG what a modern and sleek speaker. So innovative and with the new technological features I love it!

Kathleen August 10, 2014 - 8:51 pm

I have been looking to get us a radio system or just some great quality speakers for the house for the longest time. Will have to check this system out.

Tammy Litke (@threedifferent) August 10, 2014 - 9:58 pm

We just usually stream music through our computers, but we do have a waterproof wireless speaker that we can take outside. That’s really great for when we have parties out back!

Raijean S August 10, 2014 - 10:07 pm

Ok, I’m going to have to check this out, I love Samsung.

Crystal August 11, 2014 - 7:10 am

We listen to a lot of music at our home also. Since we have an unattached bonus room, we have to carry speakers out there if we are going to be listening to music in that space. It’s a nuisance, but the Samsung Shape would totally solve our problem.

Penelope Guzman (NY Blogger) August 21, 2014 - 9:32 am

I was so impressed with this being wireless than I decided to buy it 🙂

Marcie W. August 25, 2014 - 4:40 pm

Goodness I want this system! I can just imagine blasting the music while the kids are at school so I can clean the house, or broadcasting a football game while I multitask. Pure awesomeness!
