Bose SoundTouch 20

 

Bose has launched a line of Wi-Fi speakers under its new SoundTouch brand, which the company touts as having a simple setup and operation, and it is aimed squarely at Sonos' audience.

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

 

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.

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.

This wireless speaker has brilliant sound quality.

You won't be able to stream music from YouTube or Spotify from an Android device.

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.

Great product!

 

The amplifier unit due out in early 2014 will be a welcome addition to the product line.

Unit fits with the Apple world as well as straight internet radio. Unit integrates via Apple Air, direct to your iTunses Library, or to a stand alone internet radio device. You can change the connectivity on the fly and the unit will switch...

It was a little finicky to get set up initially. The only way to set up the unit is connecting to a PC via USB cable.

Sound system is perfect for bedroom

 

Sound is good and portable lightweight size is great for bringing it around the house. Sound is not as full bodied as expected but still good for the purposes intended.

Terrific system for any level of tech experience

 

Spend the extra money for the best sound system (Bose) of its peer products/manufacturers. You'll be glad you did for years to come.
