Bose SoundTouch 30 Series III Wireless Music System – is the Boss

On time and exactly as described.

This is a quite good speaker system. Over-all, this is a pretty fantastic speaker system, but i am not as amazed as i hoped i might be. Great points:- sound excellent is great and in my feeling beats sonos’ arms down- pretty solidly created speaker- effortless to set up and use- adore the way spotify is built-in and can be utilized with out having to stream from other devicenot so superior factors:- you can only modify the degree of bass, not treble, in configurations – which personally i find a shame as i do like to alter according to design of music i am listening to- extremely flimsy remote- tried anything to make the speaker clearly show up in airplay, just to uncover out that this is no extended supported, which is not perfect for ios buyers like me (but bluetooth functions good but i choose airplay)- the layout of the white bits on top rated is a little bit aged fashioned- white product comes with black electrical power leadoverall, i would still very suggest providing this a go, even if you are like me a very long standing sonos fan.

This bose soundtouch series iii wireless music system sits at the top rated of the bose soundtouch array and marks an evolution relatively than revolution of a well-known assortment. The key modifications to the just lately produced series iii is that airplay has been dropped in favour of a bluetooth solution, the cupboard finish has been tweaked and i also i feel the price has been decreased also. In the box you get the speaker, mains lead, remote and instructions which are on a massive single sheet – you would not overlook them.To get heading you have to sign-up the product by downloading the bose sound touch app and creating an account – this enables you to join the speaker to your community, be warned, even the bluetooth connectivity would not function until you’ve got completed so. The unit also has crafted in assistance for deezer and spotify which is welcome. The over-all create top quality is best notch and my black variation characteristics a carbon fibre complete which seems genuinely good, however, the remote, whilst enough, is not of a commensurate construct high quality. There is a minimalist command panel on the higher surface of the device with six presets and a discreet show on the front telling you the link position and which scrolls the keep track of title and artists name. Both installation and operation are slick and uncomplicated in addition the unit appears really superior in situ – minimalist but authoritative and it attracts admiring glances. Make no blunder this 30 series design is hefty and relatively huge, it is not made to be a moveable system so has no internal battery, even so, you are rewarded by an superb audio.

  • Very addictive sound
  • Amazing speakers, well built, Excellent sound. App needs work
  • Excellent sound quality
  • this is a very good speaker system
  • Good but not £500 worth of speaker for me
  • Bose SoundTouch 30

This bose speaker is the best audio i have ever listened to. The speaker or system supply a reasonable several means for you to link also and entry music. It connects to your wifi network or can be bluetooth paired with telephones or non wireless units by way of a mini jack auxiliary input. You can also if you like hardwire connect into your community by way of a cable. The instructions are relatively straight forward, displayed on big sheets of paper even bigger than a3 sizing. Setting up the bose application to your smartphone/tablet or computer system couldn’t be less complicated. The phase by stage guidance manual that the app operates through clearly show how to join to your wireless community.

The glimpse of this music system is rather spartan and all black, really modern and trendy, it would fit into most present day fitted rooms. The sound is excellent, and the bass stays clear and would not distort and overall the speakers audio good for most types of music – rock, dance, speech etc. The six presets are set up by the cell telephone application from the place you can explore and pick the world’s digital radio stations, you won’t be able to do this from the seem system alone. You can engage in spotify on this system as well, but if you are actively playing it on wifi you will need spotify premium – what i do to get round this is hook up my cell phone by way of bluetooth and participate in my absolutely free model of spotify by means of bluetooth from my cell phone by way of the audio system – this is effective pretty nicely. You can also participate in youtube through the seem system by way of the app on your mobile phone (as a result of bluetooth) so it really is helpful for music video clips on youtube. This would seem like a good deal of revenue for a speaker / world wide web radio / method of actively playing spotify and so on, but the seem high-quality is excellent as you would hope from bose. I assume you are spending somewhat for the identify though, and for the large value i have knocked a star off. When related to wifi, it streams really nicely and there is no buffering or significant gaps of silence. The very little remote has the exact same controls as the leading of the unit, quite sparse and basic to use. Sounds great, if a very little overpriced, four stars.

Superior but not £500 worthy of of speaker for me. Acquired this speaker anticipating a little something rather exclusive for £500. Great points1) wonderful basic trendy structure, i went for the white which i considered was a classier appear. two) connection is respectable when steer clear of bluetooth selection. three) application imo is extremely fantastic with deezer, enabling entire regulate and ability to switch it on and off from telephone (the total speaker system) having said that discovered the app difficult work with spotify as have to hold leaving most important app interface. four) radio solutions and interface outstanding. five) digital artist/song screen a nice contact. six) pretty easy to set up, with an fantastic connection the moment it really is established. Bad points1) lacks depth/detail and clarity when listening to music a minimal additional elaborate. 2) radio sound high quality is weak, this may be a streaming issue on the other hand.

This was very tricky to set up on wifi. The relationship to soundtouch saved dropping off. At some point we connected through ethernet due to the proximity to the router. As shortly as every little thing was connected the firmware was straight away up-to-date which is a pleasant function. The mobile application is straightforward to navigate and there are a large range of approaches to stream material- world-wide-web radio, computer music library and bluetooth. Superb sound quality with substantial clarity. The seem fills the home with simplicity.

    I like the sound, the physical interface and relative ease of use/set-up. So why three stars?no airplay. I spent a lot of time trouble-shooting my network, hub and even itunes (pc/mac) to then discover that airplay is not supported by bose in this series iii iteration. This new system appears the same in all other respects excepting the addition of bluetooth. To be clear, itunes does not recognise this speaker as an airplay™ speaker, it will not appear as a speaker for ‘single’ or ‘multiple’ use in the speaker tab of itunes (pc/mac). Therefore you cannot send music to ‘multiple speakers’. This my third soundtouch speaker (they are multiplying around the house) and it was a deal-breaker when i realised that i could only control/play via the bose app on a tablet or similar and the bose app (desktop version). If, like me, you mostly play from itunes and/or have a large itunes music library and you are not that keen on accessing your music library via the bose app, i recommend series ii (5*’s in my opinion), which does support airplay. I returned it and switched it for the same module series ii.
    • Fantastic item, sound quality is amazing. Fantastic item, sound quality is amazing, i have since added the soundtouch 10 in my kitchen. It looks good what more could you ask for.
      • Good but not £500 worth of speaker for me. Bought this speaker expecting something pretty special for £500. Good points;1) nice simple stylish design, i went for the white which i thought was a classier look. 2) connection is decent when avoid bluetooth option. 3) app imo is very good with deezer, enabling full control and ability to turn it on and off from phone (the entire speaker system) however found the app hard work with spotify as have to keep leaving main app interface. 4) radio options and interface excellent. 5) digital artist/song display a nice touch. 6) very simple to set up, with an excellent connection once it’s established. Bad points1) lacks depth/detail and clarity when listening to music a little more complex. 2) radio sound quality is poor, this may be a streaming issue however.
  3. This bose speaker is the best sound i have ever heard. The speaker or system offer a fair few ways for you to connect too and access music. It connects to your wifi network or can be bluetooth paired with phones or non wireless devices via a mini jack auxiliary input. You can also if you like hardwire connect into your network via a cable. The instructions are fairly straight forward, displayed on large sheets of paper bigger than a3 size. Installing the bose app to your smartphone/tablet or computer couldn’t be easier. The step by step instructions guide that the app runs through show how to connect to your wireless network.
    • This was very tricky to set up on wifi. The connection to soundtouch kept dropping off. Eventually we connected via ethernet due to the proximity to the router. As soon as everything was connected the firmware was immediately updated which is a nice feature. The mobile app is easy to navigate and there are a wide variety of ways to stream content- internet radio, pc music library and bluetooth. Excellent sound quality with high clarity. The sound fills the room with ease.

    The look of this music system is quite spartan and all black, very sleek and stylish, it would fit into most modern fitted rooms. The sound is great, and the bass stays clear and doesn’t distort and overall the speakers sound good for most types of music – rock, dance, speech etc. The 6 presets are set up by the mobile phone app from where you can explore and select the world’s digital radio stations, you can’t do this from the sound system itself. You can play spotify on this system too, but if you are playing it on wifi you will need spotify premium – what i do to get round this is connect my phone via bluetooth and play my free version of spotify via bluetooth from my phone through the sound system – this works very well. You can also play youtube through the sound system via the app on your phone (through bluetooth) so it’s handy for music videos on youtube. This seems like a lot of money for a speaker / internet radio / method of playing spotify etc, but the sound quality is excellent as you would expect from bose. I think you are paying slightly for the name though, and for the high price i have knocked a star off. When connected to wifi, it streams very well and there is no buffering or large gaps of silence. The little remote has the same controls as the top of the unit, very sparse and simple to use. Sounds great, if a little overpriced, four stars.

    This is a very good speaker system. Overall, this is a very good speaker system, but i am not as impressed as i hoped i’d be. Good points:- sound quality is excellent and in my opinion beats sonos’ hands down- very solidly built speaker- easy to set up and use- love the way spotify is integrated and can be used without having to stream from other devicenot so good points:- you can only adjust the level of bass, not treble, in settings – which personally i find a shame as i do like to adjust according to style of music i am listening to- very flimsy remote- tried everything to make the speaker show up in airplay, just to find out that this is no longer supported, which is not ideal for ios users like me (but bluetooth works fine but i prefer airplay)- the design of the white bits on top is a bit old fashioned- white model comes with black power leadoverall, i would still highly recommend giving this a go, even if you are like me a long standing sonos fan.

    Amazing speakers, well built, excellent sound. I received bose soundtouch 30 series iii wireless speakers last week with amazon’s next daydelivery. As usual no issues in delivery and packaging. The outer box was amazon cardboard boxwith paper cushioning inside and a very sturdy inner bose original box. Inside the box, there is a speaker unit, usb to microusb cable, power lead and manuals invarious languages. Set-up: it is quite easy to get speaker out of the box, connect the power lead (you do notneed to connect the usb cable unless you want to get the system connected to a pc and set itup) and start. An amber flashing wi-fi symbol appeared on the screen. I downloaded bose appfrom itunes (free) and after installation, i connected my iphone to the home wifi network.
