All I can say is....WOW!
Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 30 Wi-Fi® Music Systems:
Amazing sound for something so small. The bass thumps, the treble chirps and the sound fills the room. I bought this for our game room which is about 900 square feet with a rather low ceiling (maybe 8 ft). It fills the room with sound to spare. I was amazed by the amount of bass put out by this unit. Considering the size, it's unbelievable that the walls and floors vibrate. I've mostly been streaming Pandora and it hits the mark. Not only is the sound great but it is super easy to set up and control. This was the fourth unit I've added to the house (I have the 525, the 20 and the SA5 attached to 4, 251s) and I think for the size, this has the best sound. The price is steep but this is probably the best sounding product, based on size Bose has sold in a while. Buy it!!

Something is wrong
By David sotelo
My wife and I bought this soundtouch a week ago everything was great so far but when we tried to use the aux plug in it didn't work. We changed it but it's still the same.
Exceeded my expectations
My wife got me a Soundtouch30 and two Soundtouch10's as an anniversary gift a month or so ago. I am delighted with the system in every way. Initial setup and pairing was fast and easy. The app is a fantastic interface to control the system -simple, fast, intuitive. Sound quality is excellent. I'm no "audiophile" , but I'm more than pleased with the rich, full sound from the 30. The sound quality from the "10"s is at least as good as I expected, considering the size of those speakers - we have one in a bathroom, the other in a bedroom, and they are more than adequate for rooms that size. One of the main attractions of this system for me was the "redundant" controls - they can be operated from the app, from the remote or from the touch pad on the speakers. We find ourselves using all of the different control options regularly, especially in the smaller rooms, where you can quickly turn on a speaker ( the power up and connect in about five seconds) and then easily turn it off again as you walk out of the room. When we are sitting in our living room listening to the 30, then we typically use the app on our iPads. My only (very) minor suggestions to Bose would be to have small indicator lights on the channel buttons on the 10, so you could see which channel is selected without pulling out your phone. It's a trivial thing, but would be helpful. Love the system, no complaints about the cost/value equation, highly recommend it!
The soundtouch 20 is a great sounding speaker plagued with connectivity issues. We can only use it reliably as a teathered speaker in auxillary mode. I've suffered with this thing for three years now and finally switched to another proprietary multi room system which is flawless. (hint, its spelled the same front and backwards) The setup process through the bose app on an iphone is excruciating and takes multiple attempts to connect to any network. We've tried it at home, at work and at a friend's house. All had issues. Once it does accept the network settings. It may play for an afternoon, a day, or an hour but eventually it starts to cut out, then it just stops. No attempts to restart or change stations seems to get it to reconnect. Bose makes a great speaker but can't seem to get the connectivity kinks worked out.
bose sound touch 30 all that and more got 1 more on the way!
I've had this for over a year in my garage. Can use my gas lawn mower and listen to my music. Only had one neighbor complain. Not about the noise, they wanted to here some George Strait! 6 presets for genre or whatever, and random the whole collection or preset. Just precheck the system before a party. Sometimes Bose will up date the software and that can take a minute or two. Great sound at all volume levels.

I have had an internet radio on my back porch for many, many years. It (a Logitech) had many excellent features and I have been happy with it. However, to improve the overall sound quality (bass) I had to hook a compact subwoofer up to it, and to be able to play Bluetooth I had to hook up a separate Bluetooth adapter. It recently finally became time to upgrade and my eye fell on Bose Soundtouch 30. I am glad I bought it. Sound quality is excellent and set up was easy. The Soundtouch ap makes it easy to navigate. Now, as for the sound. I know many people just love bass and the more the better for them. I see bass as a necessity too, but I also see it primarily in a fill-in / supporting role. The Soundtouch default bass setting (max) was just a bit much for me. Luckily, although the Soundtouch does not have an equalizer, it does have the ability to adjust the bass level. So, I lowered it just one step and now it is perfect for me. Very happy so far!
Lots of flexibility.
By abc 123
Bought this three weeks ago. It puts out realy good Sound. Every body dumps on Bose, but for what it Does. And the features it has makes it a good all Around speaker. People have understand it is not A high end Audo product. Are their better systems Out their. "Sure their is" but for the sound that Reproduces and the flexibility it has. Being able To switch back and fourth from Bluetooth and Wifi "is huge" the six presets are fantastic, People , "their isn't enough presets" but Hey' you can allways reprogram them to other Stations. When your tired of the ones you have. I have owned many Bose products in the past. Two wave radios among others. And for the Money they hold up extreamly well. "You will never Go wrong buying a qualty product. Because Rember this old adage. "When the sweetness Of the low price is gone, the bitterness of Poor quality remains".
