Our take on the Samsung Shape™ WAM250 Wireless Audio Hub

by Ralph Graves
Samsung

The Samsung Shape WAM250 Wireless Audio Hub unleashes the full potential of your Shape M7 speaker systems. By itself, the M7 works as a wireless speaker, but when you add the Hub and additional M7 speakers, your smartphone becomes the command center for a powerful multi-room music system.

Simple app control

Samsung's free Smart Controller app lets you operate the system right from your smartphone. You can select your music source — such as Pandora®, music stored on your device, the Amazon player app, or Internet radio stations. It also makes multi-room audio easy. You can have all your speakers, a select group, or just one connected speaker play from a selected source. Or have different music playing in every room. You can also adjust volume and equalization settings for each speaker individually with the app.

Simple wireless connectivity

The Audio Hub features dual-band Wi-Fi compatibility, to maintain an uninterrupted audio stream from virtually any device. Sophisticated circuitry creates a mesh network among the speakers and Hub to ensure the best possible connection at all times.

Features

Wireless Audio Hub: The Samsung WAM250 wireless audio hub allows you to wirelessly link multiple Samsung Shape wireless powered speakers (sold separately) together for a multi-room audio system in your home or office. The Samsung wireless audio hub simply plugs into your home network's router via Ethernet and communicates to the Samsung Shape wireless speakers via WiFi.

Dual Ethernet Jacks: The Samsung WAM250 wireless audio hub is equipped with two Ethernet RJ-45 ports. Once Ethernet port is used to connect your home network's wireless router, while the other port is used to connect another wired network device.

Repeater Mode: A Samsung Shape wireless speaker and a HUB may not pair successfully if the speaker and hub are too far apart or are on different floors. In such cases, you can link two WAM250 hubs together by setting the second hub to Repeater mode. The additional hub amplifies the signal and lets you pair the speaker to the closest hub.

Wireless Multi-Room App: Using Samsung's Wireless Multi-Room app, the WAM250 wireless audio hub, and multiple Shape wireless speakers (sold separately), you create a wireless multi-room audio system which can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet device. Simply download Samsung's free Wireless Multi-Room app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store onto your Apple iOS device (5.0+) or Android smartphone/tables (2.3+). The Samsung Wireless Multi-Room app lets you connect, group, and control each of your Samsung M7 wireless speakers (sold separately).

  • Variety of Sources: You'll be able to stream Internet radio stations from TuneIn Radio, select music apps (like Pandora/Rhapsody/Amazon), and music stored on your smartphone/tablet or laptop/computer connected to the same wireless home network as the WAM250 and your wireless speakers (sold separately).
  • Zone & Party Modes: With the app, you can play one song in one room, different songs from different sources in each room, one song across all speakers, or any combination that fits your mood. Multi-source/multi-room audio can only be done with music from the Internet or your home network, not Bluetooth.

External AC Power Supply: The Samsung WAM250 wireless audio hub operates off of standard household current using the supplied external AC power adapter (Input: 100-240V~ 50/60Hz, 0.3A; Output: 14-0.71A).
