Bose SoundTouch 20


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 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.

Great Sound System


The sound is very clear, the functionality of the system thru the network is clear with no interferences.

Love it


For a system so small, the sound is amazing. The ability to get loud is taken full advantage of from my teenage children. I bought it for outside use instead of mounting outdoor speakers. It doesn't perform as well as I had hoped for this use, but the...

This is a great music system.


This is a great piece of equipment. I can listen to music from my phone or computer. I can listen to internet radio stations that are internal on the machine or any that I have on my phone or computer. The only thing I don't like is the delay we get...

I love the sound. I love being able to control it with my phone

The aux function to listen to TV and movies has a slight delay that is annoying. Not sure how to fix that

Doing everything & more, app let U surf & pick


I have done everything I wanted and more. It was easy to install apps and programs. Volume is perfect for patio use. Remote is nice for when phone is not around.

Not having to convert files. Surfing with phone app. Volume

Having to reload library after ripping more cd's

Consumer review by:

Good WiFi sound. Can move from room to room.


Overall pleased with ease of setup, intuitive App, and the six preset buttons. Sound is good when played louder, base tones a little heavy at lower volume. Works well with Apple's Air Play.

Easy set up. Works well with Apple products

Too much base at low volume, OK louder. A little pricey

Consumer review by:

Great product - love the Sound and the clarity


seems some third party products are available but Bose should have made Bluetooth and PC compatible so we are not restricted on music source....but really great product from Bose.....

Good depth (Bass) and good highs (Treble) at this price point

No Bluetooth and cannot stream from a PC (Only AirPlay)

Consumer review by:
