STREAMQ APP

You can find the app on both the Apple App Store (for iOS) and Google Play Store (for Android). Open the store app and search for ‘Bayan Audio StreamQ’. Tap to download the app. Accept any permissions that the app may need. You may also need to enter your password before the download will start.

Tap the icon to launch the app once it has finished downloading and installing.

Your phone/tablet must be connected to the same WiFi network as your speakers in order for them to be visible within StreamQ.

If the speakers are not switched on they will not be visible within StreamQ

If the speakers are switched on, and you are connected to the same WiFi network and the speakers are still not visible, quit and re-open the app.

If, after trying all of these things, the speakers are still not visible, please contact technical support.

StreamQ will search through your phone’s storage to find any music that can be played through the system. This means that if you have music that is stored on a ‘cloud-based’ service (such as Spotify or Apple Music) the song will not be visible.

It is possible to group your speakers together in StreamQ. View the speaker list by either pressing the ‘Select a Speaker’ button in the main menu, or by tapping the word ‘Speakers’ at the top of the screen.

Next, tap ‘Create/Edit groups’. You will now be shown a list of your available speakers and, if you have any, groups of speakers. Tap ‘Create’ next to one of your speakers then select the other speakers you want to group it with by ticking their boxes. Press ‘Save’ to confirm the selection and you are ready to use your new grouped speakers.

You can remove speakers from a group using the same method. Instead of pressing ‘Create’ on an individual speaker, you can press ‘Edit’ on a group of speakers. You can then add or remove speakers by ticking or unticking their boxes. Pressing ‘Save’ will confirm your changes and adjust the group.

If you untick all of the speakers in a group and press save, the speakers are ungrouped and will all be separated.

To create a playlist of songs stored on your phone/tablet, first go to ‘Playlists’ in the main menu. You should then press ‘Create New Playlist’, enter a name for the playlist, then press ‘Save’. You will now have an empty playlist ready to filled with music!

You can add songs to your new playlist by long-pressing on their names, selecting ‘Add to Playlist’, then tapping on the name of the playlist you wish to add the song to.

The queue is a list of songs to be played for each speaker or group of speakers. At any time, you can see which songs are currently in the play queue by swiping the screen from the right.

It is important to understand that the play queue is the list of songs to be played on each speaker (or group), not the list of songs to be played on your phone/tablet. This means you may see a different queue of songs depending on which speaker you currently have selected on your phone/tablet.

Open the Player screen while a song is playing by tapping the small ‘^’ arrow on the mini-player at the bottom of the screen. You can then use the slider at the bottom of the Player screen to change the volume. If you have a group of speakers playing the song, tapping the volume slider will open a list of volume sliders. These sliders control the volume of each individual speaker in the group.

You can change the name of a speaker by going to the ‘Speaker Settings’ page on the main menu. You will be shown a list of the speakers currently connected to your network. Select the speaker that you wish to rename buy tapping on it. The next screen will display information about the speaker including the strength of the WiFi signal, the current firmware version, and the name of the speaker. Tap on ‘Name’ and enter a new name for your speaker. Press ‘Ok’ to confirm your changes.

There are many Music Streaming Services that are compatible with our WiFi speakers. In StreamQ, tap the ‘Streaming Services’ button on the main menu to see a list of compatible apps. Tapping on one of the Streaming Service apps will either open the app (if it’s installed on your phone/tablet), or open the relevant page on the App Store or Play Store.

Your music might stop playing when you create a group because of how you created the group. For example, you are listening to a song on your speaker in your kitchen and you wish to group it with your speaker in your living room. If you tap ‘Create’ in the Group Management page in StreamQ on the living room speaker, rather than the kitchen speaker, the music playing in the kitchen will stop. This is because creating a group tells all of the speakers you select to play the music that the speaker you pressed ‘Create’ on was playing. In this example, the kitchen speaker is told to play whatever the living room speaker is playing; which is nothing, so the music stops. If you had pressed ‘Create’ on the kitchen speaker, the music would continue with no problems.

There are several possible causes for your music to stop or seem to stutter or skip:

If you are playing music from a service such as Spotify, Tidal, or Deezer, you may encounter pauses and stuttering if your internet connection is not stable, or if your internet bandwidth is not high enough. Problems with streaming services can also occur if the streaming service itself is experiencing problems. You can usually check this by visiting their website and looking for service outages.

If you are playing music stored on your phone or tablet via StreamQ, pauses and stuttering can occur if the devices’ CPU is overburdened. This can sometimes be solved by closing other programs and processes that are also running on the device.

WiFi interference can also cause playback problems. Please see the relevant FAQ ‘How can I reduce wireless interference?’ below.

Interference on your WiFi network can have many sources including microwave ovens, satellite dishes, poorly shielded cabling, certain LCD displays, and other wireless devices. Generally, you should try to position your router at a central point of your house while keeping it away from potential sources of interference. Bear in mind that wireless signals can be weakened when passing through materials. Wood and glass will interfere minimally, but metals and concrete can cause severe interference.

SILVERPOINT SP1 & SP2

The easiest and quickest way to set up your SilverPoint system is by using Wireless Protected Setup, or WPS for short. This is a simple and secure way of connecting something to your WiFi network without needing to enter passwords or use a computer, etc.

1.     Once you have connected the cables and placed the speakers in their desired locations, switch the speaker on using the on/off switch on the back.

2.     After a short boot-up period, the WiFi light on the speaker will turn white and begin to blink.

3.     When you see this, press the button labelled ‘WPS’ on the back of the speaker, then press the WPS button on your router.

4.     After a few  seconds the WiFi light on the speaker will stop blinking and shine white. This is the signal that your speaker has been successfully connected to your WiFi network.

For additional information, and other methods to connect your speakers, please see the full manual.

This may sound obvious, but the first thing to check is that the speakers are plugged into power and switched on.

Once that is done, check the following:

-       Check the speakers are connected to a WiFi network. If the WiFi light on the front of the speaker is flashing white, the speaker is not currently connected to a network.

-       If the speaker is connected to a network, make sure the device you are using to search for the speaker with is also on the same network.

-       If you recently changed the configuration of your network, are using a new router, or changed the WiFi password you will need to factory reset the speaker and re-connect it to your network.

In descending order, the LEDs on the front of the speaker are:

WiFI

-       If the WiFi LED is flashing white, the speaker is in WiFi mode and is not connected to a WiFi network.

-       If the WiFi LED is shining white and is not flashing, the speaker is in WiFi mode and is currently connected to a WiFi network.

Bluetooth

-       If the Bluetooth LED is flashing blue, the speaker is in Bluetooth mode and is not paired with another Bluetooth device.

-       If the Bluetooth LED is shining blue and not flashing, the speaker is in Bluetooth mode and is currently paired with another Bluetooth device.

Optical

-       If the Optical LED is illuminated white, the speaker is currently in Optical mode.

Power/Aux

-       If the Power/Aux LED is illuminated red, the speaker is currently  in standby.

-       If the Power/Aux LED is flashing red, the speaker is currently booting up. This can take up to 45 seconds.

-       If the Power/Aux LED is illuminated white, the speaker is currently in Aux mode.

You can change the volume of the speaker by either pressing the ‘Volume up/down’ buttons on the remote control, or by turning the ‘Volume/input’ knob on the back of the speaker.

You are also able to change the volume of the speaker with the Bayan Audio StreamQ app using the volume slider on the player page. 

To adjust the EQ (Treble and Bass levels) you can turn the knob labelled ‘Equalisation’ on the back of the speaker. Turning the knob clockwise will increase the Treble, and anticlockwise will increase the bass.

Adding another set of SilverPoint speakers to your system is very simple. There is no special process to expand an existing system. The new set of speakers should be set the same way you set up the existing set. Both sets of speakers must be on the same WiFi network to be able to be used together in a group.

There are several possible causes for your music to stop or seem to stutter or skip:

-       If you are playing music from a service such as Spotify, Tidal, or Deezer, you may encounter pauses and stuttering if your internet connection is not stable, or if your internet bandwidth is not high enough. Problems with streaming services can also occur if the streaming service itself is experiencing problems. You can usually check this by visiting their website and looking for service outages.

-       If you are playing music stored on your phone or tablet via StreamQ, pauses and stuttering can occur if the devices’ CPU is overburdened. This can sometimes be solved by closing other programs and processes that are also running on the device.

-       WiFi interference can also cause playback problems. Please see the relevant FAQ ‘How can I reduce wireless interference?’ below.

Interference on your WiFi network can have many sources including microwave ovens, satellite dishes, poorly shielded cabling, certain LCD displays, and other wireless devices. Generally, you should try to position your router at a central point of your house while keeping it away from potential sources of interference. Bear in mind that wireless signals can be weakened when passing through materials. Wood and glass will interfere minimally, but metals and concrete can cause severe interference.

You can use Ethernet cables to connect your speakers to your network if you do not have or want to use WiFi.

You can also use the speakers without connecting them to a network. Without a WiFi/Ethernet network, you can use the Bluetooth, Aux, and Optical inputs to play music.

When you power on your speakers, the Power/Aux LED will flash red. This is an indicator that the speaker is starting up. When ‘waking up’ from standby mode, this will only take approximately 7 seconds. If the speaker has been switched off completely and is ‘cold booting’, the process will take approximately 45 seconds. Once the  boot up process is complete, the speaker will either enter WiFi mode if ‘cold booting’, or enter whatever mode it was in before entering standby.

There are several reasons that you may need to reset your speakers to a ‘Factory New’ state. For example, if you have changed your WiFi password, or if you wish to add the speaker to a different WiFi network, you will need to reset the speaker.

To factory reset the speaker, press and hold the button labelled ‘WiFi Mode’ for 5 seconds. The speaker will immediately restart.

You can also factory reset the speaker using the Bayan Audio StreamQ app for iOS and Android. Go to ‘Speaker Settings’ from the main menu, select the speaker you wish to restart, and press ‘Factory reset speaker’.

To use the Auxiliary line-in, you will first have to connect an audio device to the speaker via the Aux inputs on the back of the speaker. You will then have to change the speaker mode to Aux line-in. You can do this in two ways; either by pressing the ‘Aux’ button on the remote control, or by pressing in the ‘Volume/Input’ knob until the ‘Aux/Power’ LED is illuminated in white. Once the speaker is in the correct mode, you can play music from your device.

To use the Optical input, you will first have to connect an audio device to the speaker via the Optical input on the back of the speaker. You will then have to change the speaker mode to Optical in. You can do this in two ways; either by pressing the ‘OPT’ button on the remote control, or by pressing in the ‘Volume/Input’ knob until the ‘OPT’ LED is illuminated in white. Once the speaker is in the correct mode, you can start playing music from your device.

To use the Bluetooth input, you will first have to change the speaker mode to Bluetooth. You can do this in two ways; either by pressing the Bluetooth button on the remote control, or by pressing the ‘Volume/Input’ knob until the Bluetooth LED is illuminated in blue. The Bluetooth LED will begin to flash; this means the speaker is ready for pairing.

You should then search for the speaker using the Bluetooth device you wish to connect. Usually, this is done by going to the device’s Settings, finding the Bluetooth options and searching for new Bluetooth devices. Select the speaker from the list of devices once it appears. The Bluetooth LED on the speaker will stop flashing once it has been successfully paired.

If you have previously paired a Bluetooth device with the speaker, the speaker, when put into Bluetooth mode, will automatically search for and connect to the previously connected device if it is available.

If you have a NAS drive connected to the same WiFi network as the speaker, it is possible to play music stored on the drive on the speaker. To do this, we recommend downloading the Bayan Audio StreamQ app on either an android or iOS device. Once downloaded, launch the app and tap ‘Music on your network’ from the main menu. You should then be able to find and select and play song on the NAS Drive.

Please note: You NAS Drive must be running a DLNA Server such as TwonkyMedia Server to be compatible.

There is no correct way to position the speakers, however there are a few things you can do to get the best sound out of your speakers. Because the speakers come in a pair, they should be used in a stereo setup, meaning that one speaker plays the right channel, and the other plays the left. Because of this, we recommend positioning the speakers at least 1 metre apart and to have them both facing the listener. For the best stereo experience, position the speakers so that the speaker cones are pointing towards the listener and that the distance from the listener to is the same for each speaker. Think of this as a triangle with sides of equal length. The speakers are on two of the points, and the listener is on the other. If you sit further back from the speakers, they should be positioned further apart and vice versa.

For more information, see the post on our Blog here:  https://bayanaudioblog.com/2016/02/24/listening-to-music/

When the speakers are not in use, they will enter standby mode. Standby mode will enable the speaker to ‘wake up’ if you try to play music from it. If you wish to completely switch off the speakers, use the On/Off switch on the back of the speaker.

Both the SilverPoint SP1 and SP2 speakers use 4W of power when on standby.

Only clean your speakers with a dry, lint-free, cloth. We cannot guarantee that cleaning products will not affect the finish of the speakers.

You can connect the speakers to your TV in two ways. Most TVs have a digital audio output that can be connected to the speaker via an Optical cable and the Optical input port on the back of the speaker. The speaker should then be put in Optical mode. If your speaker does not have a digital audio output, you can also connect it to the speaker via the Aux input. The speaker should then be put in Aux mode.

If you wish to use TuneIn Radio on your speakers, you should download and use AllPlay Radio – this is a multi-room radio app that is powered by TuneIn Radio and will give you access to all of TuneIn Radio’s stations.

In order to use Spotify Connect with your speakers, you must first have a Spotify Premium account. On the Spotify mobile app, open the player (with the large album art) and tap ‘Devices Available’. On the desktop app, ‘Devices Available’ is in the bottom right corner. If you are connected to the same WiFi connection as the speakers, the speakers should appear in this list. Tap the speaker you wish to play on and press ‘Play’ if the music does not start playing automatically.

If you wish to group together multiple speakers and change their individual volume levels, you must do this in the Bayan Audio StreamQ app.

If you have a device such as an iPad connected via Bluetooth to a speaker and you wish to watch a video, there may be a short but noticeable delay between the video and audio. This can be caused by wireless interference (please see FAQ question above regarding wireless interference). If you are noticing a delay between your audio and video, usually connecting to the speaker via a wired connection (such as via the Aux input) will resolve the issue.

While uncommon, the problem may be with the video itself. The audio and video may not be synchronised perfectly at the source, rather than a delay over Bluetooth.

The SilverPoint family includes SP1 and SP2, which are different sizes.

SP1: 15W RMS per channel

SP2: 25W RMS per channel

Your SilverPoint speaker system is compatible with any other multi-room speaker that uses Qualcomm’s AllPlay technology.

If you wish to change which WiFi network the speaker is connected to, you will first have to factory reset the speaker. You can do this by pressing and holding the button labelled ‘WiFi Mode’ for 5 seconds. The speaker will restart. Once it has finished starting up, you can then connect it to the desired WiFi network.

Occasionally, a new version of the speaker’s firmware may become available. These updated versions will improve the performance, security, and add features to the speakers.

To update the firmware on your speaker, you will need to use the Bayan Audio StreamQ app. The app can be found on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Once the app is downloaded, launch the app and go to ‘Speaker Settings’ on the main menu. Select the speaker you wish to update from the list. Here you should press ‘Check for update’ to see if there is a new firmware version available for your speaker. You can also choose to automatically update the speaker’s firmware when a new version is available by checking ‘auto update’ on the same menu.

Please note: When updating the firmware, the speaker will not be usable and may restart several times. The process should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

The number of speakers you can have working together in a system can vary depending on your internet router, if your WiFi operates on either 5GHz or 2.4GHz frequencies, and the bit rate (kbps or kb/s) of the audio you are listening to. While this may sound complicated, it can be simplified down to some basic principles:

Firstly, and ideally, your router should support 802.11ac WiFi, this means that the speed of the network is very high and that there would be no problems streaming large amounts of data over it. There are different specs available, with 802.11ac being the best and most common. If you are unsure what your router supports, please consult the router’s user manual.

Secondly, it is important to understand that 2.4GHz (or 2.4G) WiFi does not support as much traffic as 5GHz (or 5G) WiFi. However, 2.4GHz does operate over a longer distance. This means you can have more data being transferred at once over 5GHz WiFi, which is what we want when streaming audio around your network!

Finally, the bit rate of the audio you are listening to will affect the number of speakers you can use simultaneously. Generally, the higher the bit rate, the higher the quality of the audio. Higher bit rates will need more bandwidth to be transferred smoothly, so a 5GHz network is advised for HD audio.

For a 5GHz WiFi connection, you should be able to use 10 or more speakers at the same time.

If you wish to add other speakers to your multi-room system that are not part of the Bayan family, the additional speakers must use Qualcomm’s AllPlay technology.

While most internet routers will work without any problems, we recommend using a Dual Band Wireless AC router with 128MB of RAM. Please note: The speakers will only work with a router secured with WPA2.

For HD audio (192kHz/24-bit audio) we recommend 5G Wireless N WiFi or 100  Base T Ethernet networks.

For Bluetooth connectivity your Bluetooth device must have Bluetooth version 2.1 or higher. (Most devices produced within the last 3 to 4 years will work)

The speakers will support MP3, AAC, AAC+, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, WAV, and PCM audio formats. The speakers will also support audio of any Sample Rate and Bit Rate up to and including 192kHz/24-bit files.

To be sure that your multi-room speaker system will function correctly, it is recommended to configure your firewall so that the following ports are open:

21

24

53

443

1812

1813

1935

4370

4371

4380

4381

7547

20007

35821

57621

For more information on how to open ports, please see the relevant help/manual for the firewall you are using.

In order to access the music stored on your computer, you will need to run a DLNA server. A DLNA server is a program that will enable files on your computer to be requested, and served to other devices on your network. We found that the DLNA Media Server program Serviio (www.serviio.org) works very well, and is simple to set up. The Pro version of the software includes extra security features, however, there is also a free version available. Please follow the instructions given by Serviio on how to set up the software for PC, Mac and Linux computers.

Once you have a DLNA server running on your computer, you should be able to see it in the ‘Music on my Network’ page on the StreamQ app.

There are several reasons for your speakers to sound slightly different when changing channels. Most often, changing from a standard definition channel to a high definition (HD) channel will improve the sound quality. This is normal, as the higher bit-rate of the TV channel can send higher definition audio to the speakers. Sometimes, the audio will also become slightly louder with a HD TV channel too.

This should not be a problem with new TVs, but can occur in older models.

If the speakers are connected via an optical cable to your DVD player, games console, or satellite box (e.g. Sky or Free Sat), a small delay can occur between the picture and video. This is because the audio and video are being output separately (audio to the speakers, and video to the TV screen), meaning they could be played at slightly different times. Usually, the audio will be processed sooner than the video, causing a delayed video image (sounds happen before they appear on screen). This can be fixed by connecting the speakers to the TV directly instead.
