Well, not sure there is a technical question because the 4S is a defective product... I'm looking to make others aware of the known issue with the 4S before they buy a 4S, an AirPlay speaker or go through hours of frustration and dissappointment to find out that the 4S doesn't work with ANY 3rd party AirPlay products.

Yours is the first post I've seen on this issue, and I follow the forums quite closely. The 4S has been out for quite some time now, so it doesn't appear there's a lot ofr "frustration and disappointment" out there.

no offense intended, but I don't think you pay much attention to this specific subject... it's well known and documented. here's 1 example link... easy to find another 100 out there in 2 seconds of searching. and the links in my original post clearly show the defect across multiple manufacturers.
If you read here on some of the updates. it look slike it is fixed in iOS 5.1 Beta 2... so it is a confirmed apple defect.

Yes, one that is being worked on and supposedly will be fixed. I too have not seen a lot of posts about this, people seem far more concerned about battery life and not being able to toggle 3G off.

I can assure you that there are hundreds of us, and we are hugely disappointed and frustrated.
It's about time Apple got it"s act together and stopped letting us down.

OK, let's recap here. The OP has been nice enough to post links and messages here that show that Apple is working with those manufacturers to resolve the problem. They also stated that the problem is supposedly fixed in iOS 5.1 which is currently being worked on. So what more should Apple do?

Communicate. Not tell customers it's NOT an Apple problem. Two big things that go a long way. I called apple support 3 times on this and they all say the same thing "it's 3rd party and not supported" and "It works with apple TV so therefore it's not a problem.
And get the fix out ASAP.... it's probably being held up for some other fluff reasons. it would be nice if apple had a patch hotfix system rather then a single release every few months causing people to go extended periods dealing with defects in their product.
An since it's not fixed as of yet . it's an issue and people should be aware of it.

Depending on what tier of support you were talking with they may not have known about this problem. I generally look both places for an answer, as I did back in iOS 3.x days with a problem with my Zeppelin and was able to find out the issue.
iOS 5.0.1 has not been out very long. iOS 5.1 is in testing for such "fluff" reasons as battery life, problem with reading some microSIMS, and other trivial things like that. Not sure that anyone has a patch hotfix system for their phones, tablets, computers, etc. the cost would be tremendous and testing would be a nightmare.
