Exactly What I Hoped

 

We've only had the SoundTouch for a few weeks, but so far we love it.

Just what I expected from Bose. Easy set up & great sound! Use the WiFi with internet radio exclusively. Great range. Love the portability. Only wish I had bought this earlier.

My only con is the smallish (6) number of pre-sets. With a whole family's worth of different music tastes, it could use more.

Bose® SoundTouch Portable

 

I'm replacing a mid-sized Panasonic stereo with this and iTunes. This lets me get rid of all my CDs and a big bulky stereo box, but the sound is inferior and having the speakers right next to each other is painful to listen to. Still, there's the...

Extreme convenience. Plug it in, or pick it up and walk into another room without stopping the music. Setup was easy on my Mac

Basically sounds like two computer speakers taped together. Bass distorts at high volume with things like "Mad Season - Above" and the loudest setting is just loud enough. You won't be blasting any concerts with this, but I guess it sounds pretty good...

Outstanding sound and convenience!

 

I was looking for an easy solution for music for my mom who was in hospice. She loved music and I needed something I could just load up and stream without having my phone or a PC involved. The SoundTouch was absolutely perfect. I could link it to my...
