TIPS AND TROUBLESHOOTING
Streaming from Apple devices
On Apple devices, it is possible to stream all audio from your iPhone/iPad to the EC Living via “AirPlay”.
This is represented by this symbol
We recommend to not use “AirPlay” when playing from Spotify, Wimp, and Tidal. Instead, use our EC
Remote App to control playback.
For Spotify, use Spotify connect, as represented in the Spotify App by the speaker icon .
This will
allow EC Living to stream directly from the internet, which optimizes the bandwidth, and saves battery life
on your iPhone/iPad.
Connecting to WiFi
We recommend that the EC Living has a link quality of minimum 70%, and better than 40 Mb/s link
speed. This can be verified in our App, in the Settings -> Network menu. Higher link quality and speed is
recommended for a better user experience. We recommend a wireless AC router with MIMO technology
for maximum performance.
Resetting your system
If your system acts strangely, it can be reset to its default settings by using a paperclip to press the RESET
button on the bottom of the unit ( see illustration “rear panel overview”) The yellow led will blink a few
times, after which the green led on top of the speaker will start to blink. The unit will have restarted into
the initial setup and you can then follow the steps in this quick start guide.
To fully reset the software of the system, please go to support chapter of our electrocompaniet.no/ecliving
website and follow the instructions for software download.
“SET UP NEW APRIPLAY SPEAKER”
If aiplay speaker is not shown, or my unit does not appear there. Make sure that the green LED on top of
the unit is on. If it is off, press the RESET button on the bottom of the device. This resets and restarts the
unit, and it will be back online in about one minute.
If the LED still not turns on green, please contact support. If the LED is on but the unit still does not appear,
please temporarily connect the unit to the nertwork by Ethernet cable, and follow the steps under at page 4.
