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.

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.

Bose wifi sound touch

 

This Bose wifi sound system is amazing with tremendous sound and flexibility. The one feature that I would love to see integrated is the ability to have the iPhone phone conversation be heard on the device. Great product.

Fantastic...every station AVL in the world

Nothing to say

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
