If you’re like me and always read product reviews from real people before splashing out, then you’ll probably be feeling utterly confused as to which wireless speaker to buy. So many conflicting reviews on these things. I was deliberating between the sonos play 5 or the bose soundtouch 30, in the end i followed my gut instinct and went for the bose.Not disappointed at all, in fact over the moon with itit’s attractive and fits right into my interior. It’s really easy to set up, just downloaded the bose app, registered it and away you go. Not had any issues with wifi connection, although i do have a wifi booster anyway. Love the 6 presets and the remote, it’s handy. Those people complaining about too much bass or sound distortion at high volumes, this is rubbish.Sound quality is brilliant, very natural.

The sound from this thing is amazing, i already own 2 series iii 20’s and 1 series iii 10 which sound very good, but compared to this there nothing. The base and overall sound is so natural sounding. I have also connected this to smartthings and my logitech harmony hub, so have even more options to control it and automate it. When i was looking to buy other speaker for my dining room, i was looking at another series iii 20, as the price of this was really putting me off, however i took the plunge and bought this for my lounge and moved the series ii into the dining room, i did get this was £50 off which did ease the pain, however i would say hand on heart, for the extra £150 the series iii cost compare to the series ii, its money well spent.
Bass excellent 4 n half/5 every thing else 4/5 looks very good but n gr8 for tv n movies if you get n analogue 2 digital convertet but music excellent.
Reviews from purchasers :
- If like me you have music via Amazon prime then simply
- Big and bracing!
- Amazing around the house as they all link perfectly using
Great bit of kit, for all you purists no the sound quality isnt as good as seperates, but its fine and the convenience of streaming makes it 5 star.
This bose soundtouch series iii wireless music system sits at the top of the bose soundtouch range and marks an evolution rather than revolution of a popular range. The key changes to the recently released series iii are that airplay has been dropped in favour of a bluetooth solution, the cabinet finish has been tweaked and i also i believe the price has been reduced too. In the box you get the speaker, mains lead, remote and instructions which are on a massive single sheet – you won’t miss them.To get going you have to register the device by downloading the bose sound touch app and creating an account – this enables you to connect the speaker to your network, be warned, even the bluetooth connectivity won’t work until you’ve done so. The unit also has built in support for deezer and spotify which is welcome. The overall build quality is top notch and my black version features a carbon fibre finish which looks really good, however, the remote, whilst adequate, is not of a commensurate build quality. There is a minimalist control panel on the upper surface of the unit with 6 presets and a discreet display on the front telling you the connection status and which scrolls the track title and artists name. Both installation and operation are slick and simple plus the unit looks really good in situ – minimalist but authoritative and it draws admiring glances. Make no mistake this 30 series model is heavy and fairly large, it is not designed to be a portable system so has no internal battery, however, you are rewarded by an excellent sound.
