Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product This is a very poor product, the sound is perfect BUT if left alone for 30 minutes or thereabouts, it does not go into standby mode it SHUTS DOWN and you need to then physically approach the speaker and turn it back on so that it will connect to your device and you can start playing music, when i purchased this i was told i could just come home from work select music on my iPhone and it would play, such a misleading thing, it doe snot do this at all

When there will be optical input, automatic waking up and going into the stadby mode, I will buy it immediately. Question: Does waking up and falling asleep work when the 3.5 mm jack is connected?

Asked by: michal22
Hi, Thank you for your question. We do not have any information whether next generation will have an optical connection. You can get an optical connection by buying the AURA plus speaker. After 15 minutes of no activity, the AURA Studio will go out of standby mode and you will need to press the power button to activate it again. Contact us if you need further information on our products.

How far away from the speaker can I be with my iPhone?

Asked by: Buzz
Hi, Thank you for your question. With Bluetooth connection for this speaker, it should work 10 Meters distance away (if there isn't any interference nearby). However, you can even go further depending on your home, interference, and obstacles in-between the speaker and your phone.

Hi. Can this speaker be used with an Echo Dot? I have seen from the previous questions that the auto power off feature will turn the speaker off after 40 minutes of inactivity, which would make this speaker unusable with an Echo Dot.&nbsp;

Asked by: Totalac
Hi, The auto-power off will occur when there has not been an active audio signal for 15 minutes. This is in accordance with rules set by the EU ( EuP regulations ). If the Echo Dot does not output an audio signal continuously, the Aura will go into standby mode after 15 minutes.
