I opened it to confirm my suspicion. GH bottom is dirty, the charger cable has been rewrapped. They sold me an used GH as new, WTF!
I returned it to local store, no apology from clerk. I sent email to Staples, no apology on the reply.
I did an order for an in store pick with HH and discovered when I got home that it was a returned unit. No effort had been made to reseal it. Fortunately I was able to exchange it for an unopened one.

I think you are right about the grouping. Having two devices in a group playing the same thing in mono is not the same as stereo pairing them.

Ordered from the source on May 15 and they created a shipping label on 19th. There has been no updates since that label was created on the 19th. Initially, it was suppose to be delivered by today. Anyone else experiencing something similar?

Even if you could stereo pair OG with mini it'd be horribly unbalanced, grouping is the way to go if different speakers or multiple rooms.

Well, that's a different conversation. If you could pair them (which you can't, despite a number of people in this thread claiming that you can), then you could at least test whether adjusting the balance would give you decent sound.

Based on my own limited anecdata, paired Minis (1st gen) or paired Homes gives much better sound than grouping any number of Minis.

Those of you who ordered from Costco.ca.... Did the product come in a sealed box? Mine was not sealed and the box looked a bit dirty. Contents look fine I guess.
My understanding is it should be sealed (at least the ones sold in the warehouse as per my friend)

Damn it looks like mine was a returned item then. I can ask for an exchange but I don't even think they have stock anymore.

Is it sealed with the oem tape? You'll know as the tape is branded.
If you don't mind the box, just roll with it.. You'll end up tossing the box anyway, so long as the speaker works.
PSA: my speakers took a bloody long time to download the updates despite being 10ft from the router. My minis that I setup on the 2nd floor didn't have that issue. After some googling and reading others with the same problem, I just let it ride and it finally finished an hour later.
Seems like this is a common problem with these.. So if it happens to you, just walk away and come back later.

Yes everything is backed up so items are going from label created to your doorstep a couple weeks later.

Really eh. I also have two Alexa Echo devices and they sound fantastic in stereo mode.

Bought 2 from Google Store. These will make nice Christmas gifts. Assuming we can even see anyone.
