I am not an audiophile, and neither do I play one on the internet. I can’t describe what good sound is, but I can certainly tell bad sound when I hear it. From the get-go, HomePod checked a bunch of boxes for me. It sounded better than my previous bulky and expensive 5.1 surround sound system, it was easier to use, and it was also much more esthetically pleasing.
For about 6 months now, I have been taking advantage of new feature in tvOS that lets you default your sound output to a couple of HomePods set up as a stereo pair.
It wasn’t such a breeze to use at first because I experienced a bunch of issues with pairing the two speakers and keeping them paired together, but a fresh install eventually fixed everything, and I can’t say I have had any issue at all with this setup since then. This is to date a setup that I am completely satisfied with.
