Cocktail Audio Wireless Speaker:
The kit is good does AP, Station Mode, aptx csr BT & AUX.
I got one of last week, apparently it is now out of stock!
Well i want to send video & music to the speaker, does any one know if I can switch to Station mode (wifi 1) without using AP mode(wifi 2) or BT?
Also i want to access the cocktail audio musicDB & still play other online services like you-tube or tuneIn ...
Many thanks

Sorry almost deleted your post ...
Try using the Wifi - Station mode by pairing with the router - wps or app is easier (only needs to be done once)!
Then you can use your home wifi with the speakers without creating any access point - EVER!
This way you can play anything from videos on U-tube to music on servers.
Some prefer to use the regular wifi to access online services & then play via bluetooth, but you don't have to do that just connect with the same wifi. However the bluetooth is aptx (~ lossless/cd quality) not the regular type.
AP(wifi) or BT is best when you don't have internet - good luck.

@ MusicSmart

1. Set to station mode/pairing option (press the button - wifi indicator should be white & flashing)
2. Press WPS on the router (scanning/searches device to pair)
3. Router & Cocktail Audio Wifi speaker will pair (wifi indicator will be a sturdy white)

Or Use the APP to pair manual guide page 5

Nota Bene:You only pair once, it will automatically link up with your router next time, thus you can stream music from your servers or online services to the wifi speaker ...etc

Hi has anyone tried another app or software with the cocktail BF-11 ?
I normally use the wi-fi app and some others server apps to stream music on the x30, PC & music servers.
There is a music station on 'tunein' that i would prefer to share(stream) thru the BF-11 via wifi (not bluetooth).
Good device - sound is clear & smooth.
Any ideas?

Nice speaker really pleased sound is smooth & clear.
Listening to a sermons & lectures uploaded on video sites like you tube ... but just prefer send it to the speaker.
Does anyone know a smooth app that can generate the stream protocol well from you tube?

AllConnect - Play & Stream:
From the menu/source, access your media & send to renderer.
If using an externa software then click or select the share option to create the stream link via "all connect".
Very smooth app good for streaming anything.
