Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - Black - 738063-1100

Enjoy music throughout your home with the new Bose® SoundTouch® 20 Series III Wireless Music System - 738063-1100. By designing this advanced wireless music system for your home, Bose was able to create a device that plays clear, detailed sound, with enough punch to easily fill a room. Their proprietary digital signal processing keeps the performance evenly balanced, whether the volume is cranked up high or at bedside levels late at night. The new music system has now become even more interactive with the introduction of the SoundTouch® App. This app allows you to be in control and explore different streaming music services such as Spotify® and Pandora®. Hang out and relax in any room while easily being able to listen to all of your favorite artists and albums at the touch of a button. To make our lives even simpler, Bose has designed the SoundTouch wireless system to allow a set up of six custom presets through the app or on the system itself. But, what really makes the SoundTouch Series stand out is that you can "grow your system". Start with one SoundTouch System and add more whenever you want. They all sync together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms, to adhere to all of your listening pleasures. Place a Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System anywhere in your home today for a crisp sound quality that never stops.

Key Features:

  • Play music throughout your home easily and wirelessly
  • Sets up and connects to your home Wi-Fi in minutes
  • Powerful app transforms your phone into your music remote control
  • Add SoundTouch® systems to play the same music throughout, or different music in different rooms

  • Exploring music with SoundTouch®
    With SoundTouch®, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before. Wirelessly stream millions of songs through Spotify®, Pandora®, iHeartRadio™ and Deezer®, as well as Internet radio stations and your own music library. The SoundTouch® app lets you control your music from anywhere in the house with your phone or tablet. And six easily programmable presets let you play your favorite music from the app, the system or the included remote control.
  • Grow your system
    Start with one SoundTouch® system and add more whenever you want. They all work together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms.

    The SoundTouch® app lets you explore music services like Spotify and Deezer. It also gives you access to thousands of Internet radio stations and your stored music library, so you can always find the perfect soundtrack. The app also transforms your phone into a powerful remote so you can control your music from anywhere in your home.
  • SoundTouch®—truly different
    Set up six custom presets through the app or on the system itself. Make one a Pandora station and another a Spotify playlist. Your remote and SoundTouch® speaker will automatically remember them. So when you want to use your phone or tablet to control your system, you can. And when you don't want to power up, swipe and put in a passcode—you don't have to. Just use the remote or press a preset button on your speaker, and your music starts in an instant.

Enough has been said about the great Bose sound quality, and my experience is no different. I have placed the speaker on the fireplace mantle in main living area, which is about 40 ft long. I never had to raise the volume above 60%, even when I was in the farthest end of the room. And the remote works fine from such a distance. Connecting to the itunes library in my computer, Amazon Prime music, and Echo Dot were very easy and quick. In fact, after unpacking, connecting with power, and downloading the app, the longest time was spent in updating drivers (about 5 minutes). The rest took about 1 minute each. In about 10 minutes, everything was hooked up and running. Great experience.

After using it in my cafe as an AUX speaker (because the music would continuously stutter when on wifi, even if the access point was only a few feet away), I decided to bring the unit home. Obviously, I have to setup the speaker to connect to a new network. Using the same iPhone which I originally setup the speaker with, it could not locate the speaker. So I decided to start from scratch and restore factory settings. Still couldn't find the unit. I tried using my laptop but it's requiring setup via USB or Ethernet. The supplied USB cable is not with me and it doesn't help that my laptop is the USB-C MacBook. So back to my iPhone I went. I deleted and reinstalled the soundtouch app. I went through all the steps but it just won't allow me to click on "continue" despite having switched to the Bose network. I whipped out an Ethernet cable and just connected straight to the router. That got it working finally. Now I can AirPlay now and play some Spotify. I preset some Spotify stations but there's a lot of buffering. Best I can do is use Apple Music and AirPlay. In the end, it's not at all a simple system. Requires a lot of patience and technical know-how. Cumbersome setup. Very weak Wi-Fi, lousy streaming. It's got great sound, and that is the only thing going for he SoundTouch because right now, it's only working as a Bose WIRED speaker.

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

    I bought both the Bose and Heos to test out which one I liked best. The Bose won because I didn't need to purchase the additional Heos play and go. I really like everything about the Bose system, but the fact that I have to play my iTunes playlist from my computer (which has to be on) and can't play directly from my iPhone. Other than that I am very happy with my choice and would definitely recommend to others.

    I thought it was overpriced, I was so wrong

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    On Christmas 2015 I bought a SoundLink Mini and I was so satisfied (see my review) that last Christmas I decided to step up a little and buy another speaker with a little more power to listen in the kitchen and the living room, and at the end decided for the SoundTouch 20. At the beginning I was a little startled by its price, at that price you can buy a much bigger system, but I did not want a big system. I do a lot of casual listening when I am at home, especially streaming music, and this speaker with WiFi capability seemed perfect to me. And its size of course, I wanted something bigger than the SoundLink Mini to have more power, but still I wanted it to sit on the counter of the kitchen. I am do glad I bought it. For my use, it is just perfect. It seats on thecounter between the kitchen and the dining/living room, it is quite a large space and the little guy is able to fill it with music quite easily, keeping the volume just above half. Of course this is not a surround system, do not expect the floor to shake, but the quality of the audio is really good, like the SoundLink its position needs a little adjustment to get a balanced sound otherwise the bass is a little too overpowering. The aesthetics is great, it can blend in any space, it is really well built, easy to pair if you use Bluetooth, the WiFi connection is great, so far it never lost it. It has a rechargeable battery inside, so you can disconnect it, take it into another room (it is not that heavy really and easy to carry) and it remembers all the settings. It is great for music streaming, you can preselect up to six internet stations and select them pressing one of the buttons. It has a nice black and white display that shows you in which mode it is, and details of the song it is playing. With these six stations you can use it standalone, without the use of any external device. A WiFi device is needed to configure it, and the process it is very easy using a free application that you can download from whatever platform you use. I really like the volume, usually when the volume is set using two up/down buttons there is too much difference between steps and sometimes you can't set the volume at the right level, it is either too low or too high; not with this device, pressing the volume buttons a bar indicator showing the volume level appears on the display, and you can easily and fast reach the desired level. My only critic is the user interface of the associated app. It works great to configure the WiFi and set up, very easy to use. Unfortunately it is not intuitive at all when you want to listen to it, the few buttons are confusing and it took a while to me to learn the steps to select which "mode" to use and how to select the station. I found myself thinking "now what", so I started tapping buttons, only after few days I got used to it. Overall I really recommend this product. If you don't need WiFi connection you can find something cheaper, otherwise this is perfect.

    Missing AirPlay and Apple Music

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    I bought ST 30 based upon past experiences with Bose products. It seems Bose is struggling to make their products relevant. I was disappointed to learn their is no support for Airplay. Bluetooth is okay but seems ST 30 does not automatically connect via BT as your earphones do. That said, my preference is WiFi and Apple AirPlay. Therefore I see no option but to return this product.

    Beautiful sound, just ok tech

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    I have the SoundTouch 30 and 20 systems. The sound from both systems is phenomenal - clear, true and rich. The 30 is powerful enough to fill a large great room and almost an entire ground floor (approx 1.2k sq feet). We use it with various media including internet radio, iTunes and a lot of Spotify. The downside of Bose wireless systems is their lackluster tech - meaning SoundTouch app and integration with wifi and Spotify. Setup can be simply difficult to get working properly with multiple failures to connect either to wifi or Spotify. Often the system will get "confused" when switching from one media type to another and crash, requiring a hard reboot (i.e. Unplugging it and replugging it). The SoundTouch app has improved a lot in the last year but is still prone to not finding speakers on the network. Bose Wireless speakers cannot integrate with home automation and I would like to see Bose work on adding IFTTT and home automation hub support (Wink, Samsung SmartThings).

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    It's hard to believe that such great sound comes from this little unit. Setup was a very simple procedure as was the app that controls the various features. There may be a premium for BOSE products but it's well worth it. Wifi and bluetooth work flawlessly as does the downloaded app for my Mac. Don't waste your time looking for something better. In my opinion there are none. Great job BOSE.

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    I've owned BOSE systems for the past 17 years. I've been impressed with their equipment over the years and they seem to get better and better. Love the design, compact, easy set up and most importantly the sound they provide. I recently bought the SoundTouch 30 which I have in my garage and it's buy far the best ever! This system not 5 stars but 10 STARS !

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    Have one sound wave, one twenty, one thirty, one mobile (no longer made), two tens, and one remote for my stereo. These soundtouch speakers are great sounding and easy to control. App needs to have on/off timer for morning and night time listening. Need to get with the times and have it connect with Amazon Alexa.

    GREAT SPEAKER BUT NEEDS APPLE MUSIC SUPPORT

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System - White:

    Great design, amazing sound quality and pretty easy to use and setup. The only thing that this speaker needs is support for Apple Music so I can play my music from my account. Right now I have to use Bluetooth to play my music library (which works great). But if Apple Music was supported for this product, I would be able to use the presets and more of the features(without just using pandora or iHeartRadio). Please solve this issue, I'm sure many Apple Music users would benefit from this. Thank you!
