The camera is fine and given the way it's lit, the min f/stop is irrelevant. The photos are generally taken with it between 12 and 16 on a longer exposure with no flash, otherwise the depth of field drops to the point where the whole unit isn't in focus and you get more hotspotting.
Has Airplay too, albeit not Chromecast.£900 for what is (out of the box), a single point Bluetooth speaker.
As you said on the podcast, this really is a selfridges product, an objet d’art that offers simple access to good quality sound.
The soundbar is probably more interesting as it could really tempt the down-sizers who still want to keep some flexibility for better music sources.
