Bose SoundTouch 20 review


We think it would be appropriate to call this moment in audio's history ‘the wireless era.' New speakers touting Bluetooth, Airplay, DLNA, WISA, and the new DTS protocol, Play-fi, seem to spring up overnight. We've seen several worthy offerings amongst...

Full, clear sound ; Great stereo separation ; Intuitive, well-designed controls ; Excellent streaming functionality

Occasional balance issues ; Setup can be challenging ; Limited to lossy file playback

Bose’s new Soundtouch 20 provides an excellent form factor, solid sound quality, and an intuitive wireless ecosystem that worked remarkably well for a first take.

Easy to set up and use. Nice sound.


I was actually looking for a BlueTooth speaker, but stumbled upon this. It was pretty easy to set up right out of the box. It works seamlessly with our Mac's and iPhones. You can just start playing music then airdrop, and the system will turn itself...

Easy to set up. Nice minimal aesthetic. Good signal/range

Product is okay if not used for radio


This connects very well with Pandora and My Heart Radio. But when I wanted to tune into over the air radio, it didn't appear possible. The system was also very cumbersome to set up for what it offered. It wasn't right for me.

Bose sound is great, as usual for Bose

I could only get Internet radio, not the usual radio over the air radio

Just what I needed!


I have a small family room and this works perfectly. The sound is great and after getting it set up, works very well. It's attractive and I wanted the Bluetooth capability to take advantage of my iPad.

Functionality, ease of use and sound

Easy setup and great sound


It was very easy to set up with my Mac, the sound is really great and it looks great in my kitchen.Too bad that it only supports Pandora and not Spotify.

Sound quality, ease of use

Pricey, limited apps
