Bose ® SoundTouch 30 Series II Wi-Fi Music System – Ditch the iPod/iPad and experience the superb sound from this top acoustic gadget in a box.

Better sound by far than sonos. Fabulous if you have an apple device. I would not recommend it if you have android or other smartphone oss. The instructions that come with it are pants as it only tells you how to set it up with a computer. As i only want to use it with my iphone / ipad the instructions were useless. The instructions do not mention setting up with iphone/ ipad at all but, as the soundlink features airplay, it is actually very easy. This is why i say only buy this if you are running an apple device, as apple products feature airplay. Airplay is so easy i rarely use the bose app (i don’t particularly like the bose app). Airplay is standard on all apple’s more recent products and so i can play any tune from my music or spotify etc.

Internet radio is great on it.

Well, what i can say about this new purchase. I was totally unbiased to which manufacture i went with, but had narrowed the field down to the two speakers i could afford. Fortunately we have a local audio shop that tends to like selling sonos, so i went off to hear a demo. I’d have to say that the play:5 was very very good and i was almost tempted not to bother with the bose, but then i’m a little bit older now and can remember the days of rash purchases that didn’t always work out. So off to curry’s to find a bose soundtouch 20 to compare. Well curry’s don’t exactly make it so easy for you to compare, both units setup, but miles apart in the shop and both demoing different songs. Not exactly conducive to making the right choice, however i continued the test. What didn’t help was the salesman clearly trying to sell me the sonos play:5.

Easy set up, air play, good sounds.

  • Better sound by far than Sonos. Fab for Apple owners.
  • stylish, superb sounding speaker with great features
  • I have apple time capsule and works perfect across the house
  • A bit of a pain to set up, but once that done, know this: it sounds AMAZING ? ?
  • Ditch the iPod/iPad and experience the superb sound from this top acoustic gadget in a box.
  • The best speakers I’ve ever bought

Bose ® SoundTouch 30 Series II Wi-Fi Music System – White

  • Wi-Fi connectivity to link into home networks and access personal and online music libraries
  • Six personal presets providing one-touch access to favourite music
  • Rich, powerful sound to fill even the largest rooms
  • SoundTouch app free of charge for a computer, smartphone or tablet
  • Custom zones to play different music in different rooms, or the same music in every room (with additional SoundTouch products)

The sound quality is excellent, the set up is not. The sound quality is excellent, the set up is not. You cannot use your music stored on your iphone and stream through the bose app, you have to download on a pc. This still didn’t work for me. Nor does it connect with the iphone through wi-fi. I had to go to john lewis to ask their advice and they recommended air transfer. This works, most of the time.

Lovely sound system very pleased, found the bosh app easy to use and. Lovely sound system very pleased , found the bosh app easy to use and set up with my iphone 5s and my ipad. Getting it to connect was a little bit of pain , but once i moved it more to my wi-if system had no problems after that , can move it into any room . Would definitely recommend ?.

Great sound quality with excellent apple connectivity. I had wanted to say that this system has excellent sound quality for its size, but i actually think that it has excellent sound quality despite its size. It sounds so much better than my old, cheaper sound system (it’s smaller too). I found it very easy to use once it was set up. The minimalist design should fit well in most homes. I’m going to split this review into two sections, what the system is, and what it is not. What it is:this is a wifi music system (it will also connect to your network with a cable too). You can stream music to it from an internet radio station, your music collection from your iphone / ipad or your computer. Iphone users can use the “airplay” feature built in to their devices to play any music of their choice to this system.

    The best speakers i’ve ever bought. The sound produced is amazing for such a small system, plus it looks very sleek and stylish – especially the white version which i have. The soundtouch software is definitely flawed but it does the job well enough. In any case, i mostly use this system with apple airplay or spotify connect anyway (works flawlessly with either) so the software is of little matter to me.
