    Wonder why you can order from Best Buy and get it the next day and ordering from Apple takes up to two weeks to get one. Weird

    I'm not in the market for the Apple HomePod because I already have Amazon Alexa's throughout my home, however I would set it up similar to my current set up. The larger speakers (HomePod) in the larger rooms and the smaller speakers (HomePod Mini) strategically placed in other areas.
    I would say start off with the HomePod Mini and build from there.
    I have Alexas all over but not for music. They sound terrible for music.

    I have a Sonos One and a Sonos Play:5 that was wayyyyyyy too much but sounds like it should for something in its price range.

    But since I bought my first HomePod I've added three more and have a HomePod Mini on the way. Best Buy had sales on OG HomePods all summer.

    I am putting the Mini in my bedroom and not sure what I'm doing with the Sonos One.

    My two Space Gray HomePods are connected to my Apple TV in the living room for Dolby Atmos surround sound which honestly sounds amazing. The two white ones are a stereo pair in my office.

    I have an Apple TV connected to my TV in my bedroom and that Mini is going to be used as a surround sound unit for it. Both the ATVs are the 4K version.

    I honestly hardly use my Sonoses. I love the HomePod audio, just sounds full and...amazing.

    I guess because they're coming from Cupertino?

    I noticed that too so I ordered from Best Buy

    I have two, one in the bedroom, and the other in the living room. My same sentiments as D’s. It’s a great little device, and I am happy I purchased it.

    It’s not just the HomePod. Everything from Apple has taken a month to get here.

    Location could have something to do with it. The three Apple Stores here in the Orlando area are still open for business. As for Best Buy, you can order something and pick it up in about an hour if it’s in stock.

    I can’t seem to find my USB-C port on back of my 21 inch late 2015 desktop. That’s the main reason I got it. It doesn’t really fit in my lightning port. Does anybody have any other solutions.

    I ended up just using my HomePod as a alarm clock so no big deal on this one

    I am new to the Home app on the Phone. I don’t really use my Apple TV on my home app as I only control it via control center. Is it always supposed to say paused right below the HomePod icon HomePod or HomePod mini-img_0396.jpg

    Yes, it will say paused if the device is not running. You can also go into the settings on Apple TV if you want to remove it from HomeKit. HomePod or HomePod mini-1797fbc4-7c0d-4a1d-a184-a025269e2c58.jpeg

    Does your iPhone have to be in Bluetooth range of your home pod mini or just on the same Wi-Fi network? I tried to ask it a question yesterday and it said make sure it’s on the same Wi-Fi network. I was also wondering because it keeps spinning when it’s trying to update the softwareHomePod or HomePod mini-img_0447.jpg
