Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing speaker I had been looking for good speakers for quite some time. When I was almost 20 years old I saw and heard Bose speaker for the first time in Music World (a store selling CD's etc in India) I absolutely loved the sound then. Now that there are plenty in the market so I did my own research and narrowed down to either SoundTouch 20 or SoundTouch 30. I also looked at all the reviews online and I have to say that I came across quite a few reviews were people were complaining about either the wireless dropping or the application not functioning properly. That put me in two minds as to what to do but then I thought Bose is a very reputable company and I have heard their speakers in so many places so how is it possible that their app will not function. So I went to my local John Lewis store in Milton Keynes and tried out both the speakers in store. Both SoundTouch 20 or SoundTouch 30 are amazing; however for me it was SoundTouch 30 as it is simply the best!! I bought the speaker and brought it home. The setup was SUPER easy. I don't know what to say to people who find this difficult. The device as well as the application are very very very easy and intuitive to use. It took me no time to set it up and it has been several days since I have been using it and the sound is awesome. I have had absolutely no issues with bluetooth, wireless or connectivity to the computer when playing music from my laptop. The Bose App is fantastic, the only thing I would ask as an enhancement to the existing functionality is whether it would be possible to include stuff like YouTube to be included and played from within the application using wifi. I use it using the bluetooth connectivity. Thank you Bose for creating such a wonderful master piece! This is my first Bose purchase and I absolutely love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed... I'd been looking for a complete home entertainment system and after some saving I've started off with the Soundtouch 30, with a view to adding to it as and when I can afford it. I'd hoped that I might save some cash and be able to plug this in to the tv too. it works but it really isn't suitable as a tv speaker..it just isn't that type of speaker and you'd be disappointed if you tried. I set the speaker up easily in the living room via an ipad and to be honest, I was disappointed at the sound! My room is too big and this seemed like just a good quality mono speaker. So I moved it to the kitchen...a different shaped room in the centre of the house and then downloaded the pc app. That's when it got interesting and the beautiful, rich, deep bass reverberated around the house. I am now well impressed and can see the logic in saving for the soundbar, bass module and surround speakers to make my fillings fall out! I guess my living room was just too big for this speaker on its own! Lots of reviews have complained about the app...not sure why though? On the contrary, its the only app I have that works on all devices. I've installed it on my ipad, my android phone and the pc (install the app on your pc first, then the ipad and phone, then your mobile devices will automatically sync to your pc music library). I synced this to my Windows media library and not the dreaded i-tunes. Basically I can walk around the house and change music using my phone, the ipad, the pc or the Soundtouch remote and whatever I do on one device, automatically shows up on the other device apps with no issues whatsoever. Obviously if your pc is turned off, you have to bluetooth your music to the speaker and you cannot access your entire music library. I don't yet have a Spotify or Amazon account (amazon isn't compatible yet anyway) so I can't comment on how good it works. However I think the app works brilliantly and each time I download an app on a new device, it finds my speaker and links to my music library with no fuss at all. So after a few misgivings at the start, I am extremely happy and am going to save for the 300 sound bar which I'm sure will link up seamlessly. A word of warning though..If you don't have a pc with a music library, or a spotify/other streaming account, this is just a very expensive bluetooth speaker and you may as well not use the app. If you use it as a hub for your music as it's designed to be, then it'll happily annoy the neighbours and make you smile...

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch® speaker?

All you need is a home Wi-Fi® network and a smartphone or tablet. Everything else required is included in the box.

What Internet streaming music can I play?

SoundTouch speakers let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play Internet services like Spotify® and Deezer®.

Can SoundTouch® speakers be used in a public Wi-Fi® spot (airports, coffee shops, etc.)?

No. Although most of these networks are free to use, their sign-up/sign-in processes differ from the SoundTouch® app setup process. SoundTouch® products are designed for in-home use, not on-the-go.

Can I play music stored on my computer?

Yes. SoundTouch® speakers can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows® Media Player.

How many speakers can I have on my network at one time?

It depends on the bandwidth of your home Wi-Fi® network. For most homes, we expect you can have up to four speakers connected wirelessly. For more than four rooms, we recommend using Ethernet wired connections to some of them.

Can I stream different music to different rooms?

Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch® products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customise zones to play what you want where you want.

What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch® app?

The app is compatible with Windows® 7, 8, 10; 64-bit Macs running OS X 10.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8.2 and later; Android devices running Android 4.4 and later.

What are the differences between the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 wireless speakers?

Even though the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 all offer Wi-Fi® connectivity, Bluetooth® connectivity and effortless one-touch presets to access your favourite streaming music, they each provide different levels of performance for different-sized rooms in your home. The SoundTouch® 10 is our smallest SoundTouch® speaker that delivers full, rich sound and Bose® performance that seems to defy its size. The SoundTouch® 20 is a compact, wireless speaker that delivers clear, room-filling sound. The SoundTouch® 30 is our best-performing, one-piece wireless speaker with Bose® waveguide speaker technology that produces deep, rich sound to fill your largest room. Another difference is that both SoundTouch® 20 and 30 display in-depth song, artist, station and connectivity information on an OLED screen, whereas the SoundTouch® 10 displays simple connectivity information via 4 LEDs on the front of the product.

Can I play stored music from a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive on SoundTouch® speakers?

Yes, SoundTouch® speakers are compatible with selected NAS drives, including Synology's DiskStation, Passport + and Western Digital's My Cloud™, so you can stream your personal music library even while your computer is off.

Can SoundTouch® speakers stream AM/FM radio or TV audio from one room to another?

No. SoundTouch® speakers are designed to stream Internet radio, music services like Spotify or music stored on a computer.

Does the speaker support Bluetooth®?

Yes. Users can wirelessly stream music from a Bluetooth® device to listen to even more sources, such as YouTube.

Can I stream music from multiple computers using SoundTouch® speakers?

Yes, as long as each computer has the SoundTouch® app installed on it. Each computer appears as a separate library on the app's source list.

Does the speaker have a battery?

No, it does not have a battery.

Do the speakers support near-field communications?

No. SoundTouch® speakers support Bluetooth® connectivity pairing via the physical buttons on the speaker or the controller app.

Does the speaker support AirPlay®?

No. Current speakers no longer support AirPlay®. However, previous generation SoundTouch® 20 and 30 speakers will continue to support it.

Can SoundTouch® speakers be used together?

Yes. Any one of these systems can be used with another system (from the current series or from a previous series) to create a multi-room audio system.
