Hi All, Just got my HomePod. Beware, the box lid lifts off.. if you are like me, in your excitement you will hold the box up like Baby Simba in the Lion King and the HomePod will slide straight out the bottom and crash down to the floor. Setup was incredibly fast and easy with my iPhone. Sound quality so far is impressive. Fills the room beautifully. The top display is captivating. Control via control center on my phone is integrated nicely. For me personally, it doesnt feel as familiar as Apple products usually do. Maybe thats because it doesn't have a familiar OS? Is it worth the money - I will have to give it more time to get to know the features and functions. I wouldn't normally spend AUD$499 for a speaker. I will reserve my judgement until I have had it for a while.
