Nice sound, inconvenient use
Sound is very good for the price but the app's search features are not user friendly. I have a large iTunes library and the only search feature is by Track. Really? You can select Artist but you have to scroll thru all of them. Genre used to sort by Artist now it's by album. We need choices!

Surprisingly great sound. Easy to set up.
I have many, many Bose products and added this one about a month ago and am quite impressed. I had read some reviews that noted some difficulty in connecting but I experienced none of that. But also note that moments after I turned it on and connected it to my home wi-fi, I got a software upgrade message on the unit. Took about five minutes and then adding various channels was easy. The six presets are fine for me since I mainly listen to SiriusXM, Pandora and AmazonMusic. All connected quickly and I also was pleased to discover that I can use the presets for different stations within the same app. One heads up is that Spotify only can be connected if you are using their premium (paid) package. My biggest revelation was when I placed the unit in the same listening room with my 15-year-old Acoustic Wave System I. I assumed the Wave sound would blow away this smaller unit, but the sound was glorious, especially the bass. The depth of the sound was beautiful, especially considering the wi-fi source compared with my Wave's CD music (but, again, I've had the Wave since 1999). It's also fun to turn on my favorite stations from my upstairs bedroom (using the iPhone app) and have the sound filling my downstairs before I get there. Another excellent Bose product with excellent sound. Highly recommended.

Amazing for size :-)
We just bought this speaker and the kitchen is full of good smells and good sounds now!!
Awesome sound and features
excellent product here. If most of your time spent listening to music is with streaming services like Spotify or Pandora, the SoundTouch will be the only sound system you will ever need. You can fully control it from any device with the app. Incredible Bose sound quality.

Excellent sound quality, easy set up, great product for cost
I miss Airplay
I bought a SoundTouch® 10 Series III long time ago and then I discovered there was not Airplay. With disappointment I returned the device however after a bit I decided to give it a try again. As of today I own the SoundTouch® 20 Series III and Series II and the SoundTouch® 30 Series II. The Bluetooth is light years far away from AriPlay and if I could I would return the Series III and buy another Series II. I simply don't like the fact that I have to pair or manually connect to it. I have many devices (MacBook Pro etc) and some of them connect automatically and some not. Maybe there is a way to setup this BT better however this bugs me enough that I hardly use the BT. The AirPlay is just better for the devices that I have. Beside this I really like the device and the fact I don't need my phone to switch channel (huge and appreciated differentiator). It's a real shame they haven't extended the functionalities (BT) instead of taking them out (AirPlay).
Not as Good as the Old Models
I have a bunch of Bose speakers, from wave to sound dock to sound touch to headphones (in ear, on ear, and over the ear) I have compare them side by side from old to new models. This model is not at all special. This is just average, actually way to expensive with its performance. I am very much disappointed. The sound dock series II is way way better than this one. My sound dock series II is 8 years old but sounds way better than this one.

Don't listen to the negative reviews!
I recently purchased the soundtouch 10 for my office and decided to buy myself the soundtouch 20. Sound is incredible! Set up is super super easy. Speakers look nice and the sound is total ear candy. Please don't listen to these people that can't seem to figure out how to connect these speakers to wifi. Honest to God, just download the bose app and the rest is cake!
