I purchased this device pre-release and got one of the first batch shipped. It came with a lot of promises about features that would be supported in the near future. While it is a really nice design, the vendor has still not gotten a lot of of those features working, there have been necessary bugs (including some privacy issues) outstanding for more than four years, the radio database (promised for monthly or better updates) has not been updated in almost two years, the latest firmware make batter was almost a year ago, and the company is apparently no longer responding to bug reports or other correspondence. Too bad, but this looks like a amazing idea while it lasted.
I've been using my Olive One with 2TB hard drive for a number of months. The sound quality is excellent. The Olive One hardware and sound quality is superior to SONOS. The Olive One built-in amplifier quality is very good. I have connected it to two various pairs of floor standing loud speakers and I am very satisfied with the sound. The audio line out is also amazing and I at times use it to connect to an external tube amplifier. The shortcoming with the Olive One is with the software. The interface still needs work and it does not have native help for online streaming melody services such as Spotify but such services may be connected via Bluetooth. In terms of and user interface, SONOS is superior to Olive One. Olive One has plans to incorporate a lot of enhancements and the help squad is very responsive. Overall, I am satisfied with the hardware, not thrill with the software, and very satisfied with the Olive squad as they are eager to collect user feedback, suggestions, and provide perfect support. This is a if you plan to play melody via the internal hard drive, USB drive, network drive, etc. For Pandora, Spotify users, Olive One perfect sound but you will connect via the Bluetooth for now.
