  1. I also purchased a HomeKit smart plug. Unfortunately for me it didn’t help. The Stadium shows the exact same fast blinking orange light using the smart plug as when connected to any other socket. My theory is that maybe your unit hasn’t completely failed yet. In the early days of my Stadium the orange blinking light problem would sometimes go away - this was also related to power cycling. Sometimes unplugging it, leaving it for an hour or so, and plugging it back in would fix it, and other times it wouldn’t. My guess is that your unit is currently still in ‘that’ state (power cycling sometimes fixes it) and that’s why connecting it to the smart plug seems to have fixed it. However for your sake I hope you’re wrong and that this fixes the problem permanently for you!

  3. Wow, does this really work? Did you also have the problem of the blinking WiFI light and the stadium being completely unresponsive? If so, that's amazing you found a fix! But so odd, I don't understand how a smart plug could help. Could you share a link to the exact smart plug you bought? Has anyone else tried this?
  4. Thanks guys! I thought it must be a misprint, because it made no sense, and also they sound fantastic - I imagine I would've noticed if it wasn't intended. However, it's good to know that it's a misprint.
  5. So I've had my Cornwall IV's bi-amped for a while, but I was just going through the manual for something unrelated when I noticed the bi-amping diagram. The diagram seems to suggest that the H (high) wires need to be reversed. The diagram shows the high '-' on the speaker being connected to the '+' on the amplifier. This would put the highs out of phase with the lows. I was just wondering if this is a printing error or if this is actually intended/necessary?

  7. So my Stadiums finally died permanently* and since Klipsch refuses to offer any type of support for this product, I figure it might be worthwhile to try and convert these to passives. After all, they do sound amazing. I figure the power amps are probably fine and it’s a pre-amp issue. You’d think you could use another pre-amp. However I’ve never done anything like this and I can’t find any information on the inner working of the Stadium. So I figured I’d ask over here if anyone has tried this or has any advice on where to start. *(WiFi light keeps blinking orange, no inputs will work, and there’s no way to resolve it)
  8. It’s still blinking orange for me and this didn’t help. Did you do anything else besides holding down the power button? btw I noticed in the manual that it takes the default address 192.168.1.12 but that’s already in use for me and so the stadium takes 192.168.1.42. Could that be an issue? weirdly enough the blinking orange is supposed to mean it can’t connect to the WiFi - but I can confirm it *is* actually connected. I can just access the firmware update page on 192.168.1.42
  9. I have the same problem. Sadly, no solution. I’ve contacted Klipsch - no help. The store I bought it at sent it in for repair, but there were no replacement parts, so I got it back un-repaired and got to pay 50 euros for the privilege. Will definitely never buy any integrated Klipsch product again. Stick to passive speakers.
  10. @Chad find anything out? I’m just staring at an orange blinking light instead of listening to music again. Which according to the manual means it’s trying to connect to the WiFi network, which I know isn’t correct because I can actually just go to the stadium’s IP address and see the device information, so it’s already connected for sure. Not available for airplay, though. Oh and also won’t work over a cable, because the whole device is in lock down until “wifi” works again.
  11. Sigh. Wish I never bought this thing. It’s one of the worst purchases I’ve ever made. Yes, it sounds amazing, but it’s so damn unreliable. Im honestly not kidding when I say 2 out of 3 times I want to use it it ends up not working, never managing to get a connection to begin with, or getting one that stutters and lags and breaks if you do anything like skip or repeat a song. It’s not a WiFi issue either cause the WiFi is rock solid and getting 100Mb easily at the location of the Stadium. Worst thing is that you can’t even play over Bluetooth or heck even a wired connection when the thing refuses to connect to the WiFi, because it’s on total lock-down whenever it’s not connected for whatever reason. The lack of any support or heck even interest (mails to Klipsch support have gone ignored) only makes it worse. I love my Klipsch floorstanders and will continue to do so, but I will never buy a music system like this from Klipsch again.
  12. That they do. It’s their redeeming feature. It’s sad the design hasn’t been kept around and updated with new versions.
  13. I’m making this thread to get a feel for how many Stadium owners are out that that are angry at Klipsch’s lack of updates and support. As far as I can tell, the Stadium got no support at all from Klipsch - which is rediculous with it being it’s most expensive sound dock. It hasn’t received a single firmware update to improve the (actually terrible) stability, latency and AirPlay discoverability problems. It also hasn’t been updated with features like Spotify Connect or AirPlay 2 - something that the cheaper competitor the Naim Mu-so did get. It also still has issues such as: -When not connected to a WiFi network, it’ll keep blinking orange while waiting for a connection and it won’t function AT ALL even over USB or optical until it can establish a WiFi connection. This is a huge issue as 2.4Ghz 802.11n networks might not be around for many more years. Also, it should be possible to use the device without a network connection anywhere with a wired connection. -It doesn’t automatically turn off after some time of being unused. Not only is this environmentally unfriendly, it’s actually illegal in the EU. My old Zeppelin Air just received an update for this a while ago to fix this exact issue. Would love to hear what issues other owners are having and let’s put some pressure on Klipsch to provide a long awaited firmware update with stability improvements and hopefully some modern connectivity options like Spotify Connect and AirPlay 2.
