The compact Samsung Shape M5 wireless speaker lets you enjoy your music many different ways. By itself, the M5 makes a great speaker system for your den or office. Stream music wirelessly to it from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet. With multiple M5s and the Samsung Shape WAM250 Wireless Audio Hub, you can easily create a wireless multi-room audio system. Enjoy Pandora® with your smartphone in one room while a family member plays an Internet radio station in a different room.
The system uses Bluetooth and has NFC (Near Field Communication) built-in. Just touch your NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet to pair it with the M5 and start streaming music right away. You can also pair the system with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as a portable game console or laptop computer.
When integrated into a Shape multi-room system with the Hub, the M5's sophisticated circuitry creates a multi-channel mesh network between the speakers and Hub to ensure the best possible signal quality at all times. The M5 also features dual-band Wi-Fi® compatibility, to counter interference from other devices in your home network.
By itself the Shape M5 is a versatile powered speaker, but when combined with the WAM250 audio hub and Smart Controller app on your smartphone, you can create a multi-room wireless audio system with multiple M5 speakers.
The M5 has control buttons built in, and for remote operation Samsung offers a free Smart Controller app for iOS® and Android™ devices. You can select your music source — such as Pandora, your own music library, the Amazon player app, or Internet radio stations. You can also control volume and equalization settings right from your smartphone or tablet.
The quality-built M5 features a woofer in the center for low tones. On either side are full-range speakers, angled slightly outward to create a spacious stereo image. You'll enjoy full, clear sound delivered with plenty of detail.
The shape and configuration of the M5 maximizes your placement choices. Its wedge-shaped cabinet makes it easy to fit in a corner, where the walls can further reinforce the low frequencies. Or if that takes up too much of your available counter space, you can also turn the speaker on its side. A detachable stand holds the system upright and in position.
With the Samsung WAM250 Audio Hub, you can use two or more M5s in a variety of ways. Create a wireless multi-room audio system. Just add an additional M5 for each room where you want music. Use two in the same room for two-channel stereo.
There's one more thing. The M5 can serve as a sound bar for a compatible Samsung Smart TV. Through the TV's SoundConnect feature, your Samsung Smart TV can stream audio wirelessly via Bluetooth to the M5. It's a simple setup that delivers great TV sound.

Wireless Audio Speaker: The Samsung Shape M5 wireless audio speaker lets you integrate your digital music collection into your home; whether it's a single speaker in one room, or multiple speakers in two rooms or every room of your home. The Shape M5 speaker lets you wirelessly stream music directly from your smartphone/tablet or computer/laptop device via Bluetooth to a single speaker. The Shape M5 also features a network connection, so you can wirelessly stream music from select Internet radio stations and online music services, plus music stored on your computer/laptop or in the Cloud to a single M5 speaker or multiple M5 speakers throughout your home.
Triangular Design w/ Stereo Pairing: The unique triangular design of Samsung Shape M5 wireless audio speaker fits many applications in your home; on a shelf, in a cabinet, tucked into the corner, or hung on a wall using an optional wall-mount bracket (1/4"-20 threaded insert on back). Enjoy incredible stereo sound by positioning one M5 speaker horizontally, or pair two M5 speakers together via Bluetooth and position vertically (vertical stand included) for true left/right stereo audio separation.
Three Driver Design: The Samsung Shape M5 wireless audio speaker employs a three driver design that delivers premium sound quality. Two full-range drivers produce clear high and midrange frequencies, while a centered woofer produced punchy midbass.
Bluetooth Technology: The Samsung Shape M5 speaker offers built-in Bluetooth (ver. 3.0) technology for wireless audio streaming from your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device and offers a simple pairing procedure.
Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Samsung Shape M5 speaker offers a wired (Ethernet) and wireless (WiFi) network connection which allows you to stream a variety of Internet radio stations, select online music service, and music stored on your smartphone/tablet device or computer/laptop. To access these network sources, you must download the Samsung Wireless Multi-Room App onto your Apple iOS or Android device.
Wireless Audio Hub (optional): The Samsung WAM250 wireless audio hub (305WAM250, sold separately) allows you to wirelessly link multiple Samsung Shape M5 wireless powered speakers 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 M5 wireless speakers via WiFi.
Wireless Multi-Room App: Using Samsung's Wireless Multi-Room app, the WAM250 wireless audio hub (sold separately), and multiple Shape M5 wireless speakers (sold separately), you can create a wireless multi-room audio system which can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet device. Or, you can simply use the app on your smartphone or tablet to control one Shape M5 wireless speaker. 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 (2.3.3+). The Samsung Wireless Multi-Room app lets you connect, group, and control each of your Samsung M5 wireless speakers.
TV SoundConnect: You can listen to the sound from your Samsung TV through the M5 by using its wireless TV SoundConnect function. You can pair a single M5 speaker via Bluetooth to your compatible Samsung TV. The TV SoundConnect function is only supported by select 2013-up Samsung TVs (6500 series and up).
Alarm & Sleep Timer: The Samsung Wireless Multi-Room app offers an Alarm & Sleep Timer function for the M5 speaker.
AC Power w/ Auto Standby: The Samsung Shape M5 wireless audio speaker operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter. The M5 switches to the standby mode if there is no music playback or no button operation (either from the top-panel or from the app) for approximately 25 minutes in Bluetooth or Network mode (Aux mode is 8 hrs).

I picked the Samsung Shape Wireless speakers, WAM250 speaker networking & Apple TV for the purpose of being able to stream movies, tv, etc to my Samsung Smart TV which is able to connect to the speaker with the tv output for better tv sound. This speaker system also allows us to stream music through several speakers at the same time when entertaining. Due to having a large house we are using an additional WAM250 as a wireless speaker repeater and the system is capable of up to 26 speakers. [ Chuck Dec 14, 2015 ]
good speaker for a good price [ Eleazar Dec 13, 2015 ]
I don't show a extension listed as an accessory for this product. However, you should be able to connect the plug end to a power strip to help extend the distance from the outlet. [ Jeff Oct 12, 2015 ] Staff
These and their software turned out to be useless. Returned them and got a Sonos system from these guys that is fabulous!!! [ m Oct 09, 2015 ]
