Bose SoundTouch 20 review

 

Over the years, Sonos, once a fledgling startup, has grown up to dominate the DIY multiroom wireless audio space. Now it has plenty of competition.

The Bose SoundTouch 20 offers the convenience of both Wi-Fi and Airplay compatibility; includes Pandora, with more services on the way; high-quality sound from a quality unit.

Missing key services like Spotify; no on-the-fly playlists; no FLAC, WAV, or OGG; no high-res support; no mute or pause button on unit; setup is fiddly.

The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a likeable streaming speaker with capable performance and great sound, but it needs to support more music services.

Bose SoundTouch 20

 

As an AirPlay speaker, the Bose SoundTouch 20 is fantastic, but Bose's own SoundTouch app for multi-room audio is more limited. iOS users can rejoice, but Android users should be wary.

Excellent sound for its size. SoundTouch app and presets are incredibly easy to use and set up. AirPlay support solves a lot of the potential problems of the app.

Extremely limited selection of music services available through SoundTouch app. Requires a USB connection to set up.

Bose SoundTouch 20 Review

 

There is a good reason why Bose has a reputation for quality – it is a consistent performer in the speaker world. The Bose SoundTouch 20 has great tonal qualities that are soft on the ears and make for a great listening experience, and it pumps enough...

This speaker has warm and natural tonal qualities.

It doesn't have great sound dispersion, so when you get outside of the sweet spot, the sound loses character and definition.

If you don't want to spend the money to buy a speaker in our top three, the Bose SoundTouch 20 is a great alternative that provides good sound quality and lots of connectivity options.

Bose SoundTouch 20

 

A nicely designed system but sound and features are limited

Neat ‘preset’ system ; Good looks ; Clear sound

Overstated bass, lacks drive ; Limited in file support and connections

The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a mixed bag. We like the idea of preset buttons, and being able to play our networked library with relative ease.

Not very user friendly. Good alternatives to this available

 

I brought this gadget very enthusiastically a year ago as my first Bose product. The features were very appealing and I thought it would be a cruise through operating it. However just during the initial set up that we had to go through after taking it...

Initial Set up, Pathetic software and customer care, Cumbersome ways of operation which is not at all user friendly, Not supported by most devices

Great Sound, Useless Software

 

I love Bose sound. That said, I could NEVER recommend this equipment to ANYONE. It's incredibly frustrating that I regularly run into issues being able to stream music from my PC or my iPhone to my speaker. It defies logic. The software is useless,...

Sound is great when it works

It rarely works. WiFi connection software results in no access to music library

Great Sound with Software that Needs to Catch Up

 

CNET's review is spot-on. I've got two of these units now and really enjoy the sound quality they produce. The software is a bit klugy and setting up the device isn't that straightforward (I had to perform at least one factory reset to the first unit I...

Terrific Sound, Play Anywhere, Remote Control

Software is a bit klugy; limited support for internet streaming.
