Our take on the Korus V400 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Just pass the Baton
The Korus V400 portable powered speaker system makes a great addition to your kitchen, den, or bedroom. It also makes wireless audio just about simple as it can get. You don't have to download an app, program your devices or do anything complicated. Just insert one of the included Korus Baton audio transmitters into your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad® (both 30-pin and Lightning® connector Batons are included). The Baton has all the software necessary to stream audio from your device to the V400. Within seconds, you're enjoying everything you can play on your Apple device with great sound — stored music, Internet radio, game sound effects, video soundtracks, and online music services.
The Baton can stream to as many as four Korus speakers simultaneously. And if your friend wants to share some music from their Apple portable? Just pass a Baton.
The system also comes with a USB Baton, so you can stream directly from your computer to the Korus V400.
The V400 features a stereo pair of high-performance tweeters and woofers angled outward to create an expansive soundstage. The key to the system's robust sound is an innovative acoustic signature called LiveStage™, which projects a multi-dimensional image, placing vocals to the front and accompanying instruments further back in the sound field. You'll enjoy crystal-clear, distortion-free sound at any volume level.

There's plenty to like about the Korus system.
"The convenience bests Bluetooth easily, and the audio quality is top-notch; being able to rapidly flip from source to source and even move the speakers around."

Innovative wireless technology
Patented SKAA® wireless technology offers exceptional sound quality while creating a stable connection with your Korus speaker to prevent drop-outs. And it can do so at a range of up to 65 feet. It also carries control commands from the Baton to the V400.
When connected to the Baton (not shown), which includes its own built-in software, your Apple portable can stream simultaneously to up to 4 V400s
The polished surfaces and clean lines of the V400 make it a handsome addition to any room's décor. The brushed aluminum control panel provides a smart visual accent, and makes the buttons easy to find and use. An integrated rear handle lets you conveniently carry the system from room to room.

Note: A total of 10 Baton wireless audio transmitters (3 included, others sold separately) can be connected to the Korus V400 speaker. You can switch between Batons at the speaker.
Korus App: Download the free Korus Volume Control app onto your Apple iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad (running iOS 5.0+) for volume control from the touchscreen of your Apple device. The Korus app allows you to independently control the volume level on 1 to 4 speakers, or use a master control to adjust the volume level for a group of speakers together. The app also allows you to name each Baton and each speaker something that is meaningful to you.
Note: Music navigation and song/artist information display will still be done through your Apple device or laptop/computer, not the Korus app or powered speaker.
Multi-Room System Capability: Add more Korus wireless speakers (sold separately) and build your own multi-room audio system in your home. Each Baton can stream the same song from your compatible Apple device to as many as four Korus speakers simultaneously with perfect synchronization. Put four speakers in one room, or spread your Korus system throughout your home; place a speaker in the kitchen, in the living room, the bedroom, bathroom, etc.. You can reconfigure multiple Korus speakers to work together or separately with the touch of a button on the speaker.
Charge Your Apple Device: Keep the music playing while you charge your iPod touch, iPad, or iPhone (30-pin or Lightning). The Korus includes two 40" USB Charging Cable that plug into the Batons on one end of your Apple devices and into any standard USB power adapter or computer port on the other end.
