Was out to buy a Bower and Wilkin's A7 and saw this. This has blown me away by quality, bass response and rich sound. It is a one piece music system.

  • Big-boy AirPlay speaker, incredible!

AirPlay streaming works just like any other AirPlay speaker, but with the SoundTouch app you have access to much more, like Pandora and thousands of streaming internet stations. The programmable preset buttons work just like the presets in your car, so you can tune in to a favorite internet radio station, pandora channel, or even stream from your iTunes library, at the touch of a button! Sound on this SoundTouch 30 is HUGE, on par with the old SoundDock 10, and you'll be able to fill very large rooms with the sound it puts out. Plus, with multiple systems, the Play Everywhere feature as well as independent controls are incredible for a house full of great sound!

I had full intention of using Bose as my audio configuration throughout my apartment and office. Unfortunately the inability for the air play to be consistent has been the final straw. I have had to return one, and have had to reset the systems software 4x since getting a new one. It has been very frustrating. The speaker system is gorgeous and sounds incredible, but the functionality is not there. As much as I want to, I can not recommend this to anyone. If you are a potential buyer please take this response into consideration it will save you a lot of frustration and disappointment.

    I had airplay working for a while but now it's stopped. The device is one the network and when I try to use airplay it lights up, I had airplay working for a while but now it's stopped.

    I had been using a conventional two speaker receiver, CD player with Airport Express for the past few years. I found I was playing I had been using a conventional two speaker receiver, CD player with Airport Express for the past few years. I found I was playing CDs and listening to the radio less and less, relying more on iTunes and Airplay. In my search I looked at the Bose SoundDock 10 but realized that was getting to be old technology. After looking and listening to a variety of Airplay enabled speakers I settled on the SoundTouch 30.

    Initially I was concerned about having to connect the Sound Touch 30 to my Mac in order to initialize the WiFi settings but was only required to do that once. I was also concerned that the SoundTouch 30 imported the library from my Mac's iTunes library and had to be updated whenever I added additional songs. All of which seemed very un Mac like to me. However, as I explored all of the features and capabilities of the SoundTouch 30 my initial concerns gave way to the additional functionality not provided with a straight Airplay setup.

    Updating the firmware, software and music the library is very easy and can be done wirelessly as you'd expect. One feature I welcomed was the ability to play the SoundTouch 30 radio stations/play lists in one room on the SoundTouch 30 separately from the iTunes playlist in another room. As well, you can switch from the SoundTouch 30 library to the iTunes library on the main computer or any other Airplay device via Airplay effortlessly. There are many more radio stations available in the SoundTouch library than the ShoutCast radio playlists in iTunes, another plus.

    The SoundTouch 30 is a solidly built speaker. The sound is very good with plenty of volume and range. I found the SoundTouch 30 bassy, which is easily corrected by moving the speaker closer to the wall behind it.

    All in all the Bose SoundTouch wireless music system and SoundTouch 30 speaker looks like a winner, it sounds good and works well in the Airplay environment.

    Any Mac or iOS device has native AirPlay streaming built-in, PLUS any Mac, Windows PC, iOS device or Any Mac or iOS device has native AirPlay streaming built-in, PLUS any Mac, Windows PC, iOS device or Android device can download the free Bose SoundTouch app for full control. Because these can stream over AirPlay direct from an Apple device or over your Wifi from thousands of internet radio stations and Pandora, and more services on the way, you're not limited. VERY cool systems, WAY better than docks or Bluetooth.
