Imagine listening to all the music you love just by touching a button. Now you can, in natural, detailed sound, with the SoundTouch™ Stereo system. Stream millions of songs and enjoy powerful, full-range performance from just two compact Jewel Cube® speakers and an Acoustimass® module. If you have a home Wi-Fi network and this system, you have everything you need. Then use the included premium SoundTouch™ controller to bring all your music to life with one-touch ease.
Expansive performance from two Jewel Cube speakers and a powered Acoustimass module
Wireless access via your home Wi-Fi network for Internet radio, Pandora® and your music library
Premium remote control lets you use presets, control volume, skip, pause and power on/off with the touch of a button
Sound customized to your room with ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system
Small size, big performance
Appearances can be deceiving. The award-winning Jewel Cube speakers are just 4½” tall. But you’ll enjoy open, spacious sound you wouldn’t expect from speakers of this size. Bose® engineering innovations such as Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology make it happen.
Deep notes you can feel
To experience much of the impact of a live performance at home, you need to hear the full audio range, from highs to lows. The Acoustimass module delivers the rumble of the lowest frequencies, even at the loudest volume, with no audible distortion. So go ahead and feel the beat of your music.
Sound customized for your room
The SoundTouch™ Stereo system features the ADAPTiQ system. It analyzes the specific size, shape, objects, textures and other elements that can affect the sound you hear, then adjusts the system to the unique acoustical properties of your room. The result? A clear, consistent performance every time you listen.
Welcome to the world of streaming music
This is not just another stereo system
SoundTouch™ is an entirely new way to stream music wirelessly around your home, easier than ever before. And it’s the way we’ll all enjoy our favorite music for years to come. We’re excited by the possibilities and dedicated to making it a great experience. System setup is straightforward—the SoundTouch™ app provides guided instructions on your computer or laptop. In minutes, you’ll be enjoying the music you love.
SoundTouch™ systems are designed to take advantage of the expanding world of streaming music. We’ll add more of the world’s most popular music services, like iHeartRadio® and Deezer™, in the second half of 2014. If you have an Apple® device and want to listen to iHeartRadio or another music service now, we recommend using AirPlay®, which is built into this SoundTouch™ system.
All your music. At your fingertips.
After you’ve downloaded and installed the SoundTouch™ app, the SoundTouch™ controller gives you immediate access to your music, so you don’t need to use your smartphone, tablet or computer. The OLED display shows you what song or station you’re listening to on your preset. You can also preview the music on your other SoundTouch™ presets. For added convenience, you can set up a wall-mounted cradle to store the controller.
Free SoundTouch™ app
The SoundTouch™ app gives you all the control you need to access music on your system. Use it to drag and drop any music source—a favorite Pandora station, a playlist, Internet radio—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app to stream any song or station directly from a computer, smartphone or tablet. Browse the online musical universe or your own music library to your heart's content. And with more than one SoundTouch™ system in the home, you can use the app to play the same music everywhere or play different music in different rooms.
Built for multi-room audio
If you truly love music, you want it to flow through your home. That’s why there’s a SoundTouch™ system for every room in the home—from small and portable speakers to home theater. Start with any one SoundTouch™ system, and keep adding them whenever you’d like. These systems work together to create a multi-room listening experience, so you can play the same music everywhere or listen to different music in different rooms—even outdoors.

How is the SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi® music system different from other Acoustimass® speaker systems?
The SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi music system is a fully powered stereo speaker system that incorporates the benefits of SoundTouch™. Once you’ve downloaded and installed the free SoundTouch™ app on your computer, you can stream Internet radio, Pandora® and your music library wirelessly through your home Wi-Fi network.
Does the SoundTouch™ wireless adapter work with the legacy Lifestyle® Homewide powered speaker systems?
No. While the SoundTouch™ adapter plugs into the Bose® link port on the Acoustimass® module to enable SoundTouch™, internal hardware and software changes were made to the module to power and operate the SoundTouch™ adapter. So, the SoundTouch™ adapter cannot be used with the legacy Lifestyle® Homewide powered speaker systems to enable SoundTouch™ capability.
How do I control the SoundTouch™ Stereo music system?
Once you’ve downloaded and installed the SoundTouch™ app on your computer, you have several options. You can use the SoundTouch™ controller, included with the system, the SoundTouch™ app on your computer, or the app for your smartphone or tablet. For iOS users, download the SoundTouch™ controller app from the App store. Android™ users can download the SoundTouch™ controller app from the Google Play™ store.
Does the SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi music system have a local source (Aux input)?
No. The RCA jacks are for the ADAPTiQ® headset connection only.
How do I set up the ADAPTiQ audio calibration system?
Press the ADAPTiQ button on the Acoustimass module. Plug in the included headset, put it on and follow the voice prompts.
Do I need to connect the SoundTouch™ controller to my Wi-Fi network?
No. The SoundTouch™ controller does not connect to a Wi-Fi network. Instead, it connects directly to a SoundTouch™ system using Bluetooth® low energy technology.
Can I control multiple systems with one SoundTouch™ controller?
No. The SoundTouch™ controller is designed to control one SoundTouch™ system at a time.
Can I use the SoundTouch™ stereo music system to play audio from my TV?
No, since the system no longer has an Aux input, TV connection is not possible.
What is the range of the controller?
Approximately 70 feet from the paired system in wood-construction homes. In concrete, stucco or brick homes, the range will likely be less and may vary. The number of other active wireless devices in the house may affect range as well. You can also use the controller outdoors, but you shouldn’t leave it exposed to the elements or mount it outside of your home.
Can I mount the SoundTouch™ controller to a wall?
Yes, anywhere indoors with the included wall-mount bracket. The SoundTouch™ controller magnetically attaches to the wall mount so you can easily take it when you need it. The magnet is in the wall-mount—not the controller—so for example, you cannot attach the controller to a refrigerator.
How is the SoundTouch™ controller powered?
Four standard AA batteries. With typical usage, they should last 6 – 12 months.
How will I know when to replace the batteries?
When the batteries get below a certain point, the controller’s OLED display will indicate that it’s time to replace them.
What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch™ app?
The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8; 64-bit Macs running OSX 10.6.8 and later; any iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® running iOS5 and later; Android devices running Android 4.03 and later.
Are SoundTouch™ systems Bluetooth® compatible?
No. The SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi music system is designed for use in and around the home on your Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth technology is best-suited for mobile on-the-go applications where close-range connections are generally preferred.
What Internet streaming music can I play?
SoundTouch™ systems let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play Pandora®. We plan to integrate other popular music services in the second half of 2014, like iHeartRadio® and Deezer™, and will continue to add new ones that become available.
Can I stream iHeartRadio and other sources?
Not at this time. There are so many music services we’d like to include right now. However, our focus is ensuring we deliver the experience we’re promising, which is the easiest access ever to streaming music at home. Rest assured, we’ll add more of the world’s most popular music services, like iHeartRadio, Deezer and others. Stay tuned!
Can I play music stored on my computer?
Yes. The SoundTouch™ Stereo system can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows Media Player.
Can I stream from apps or music stored on my smartphone?
You can stream music from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the SoundTouch™ Stereo system via AirPlay®. You cannot stream music stored on an Android phone or from apps on an Android phone.
What audio formats are supported by SoundTouch™ systems?
Right now, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC and Apple® Lossless formats are supported. We plan to add FLAC as part of a software update in early 2014.
Can I stream music from multiple computers using SoundTouch™ systems?
Yes, as long as each computer has the SoundTouch™ app installed on it. Each computer appears as a separate library on the app's source list.
Premium remote control makes accessing your streaming music as enjoyable as listening to it. Use with any one SoundTouch™ system to play a preset, pause or skip a track, control volume and power on/off. The OLED display shows you what song or station you’re listening to on your preset. You can also preview the music on your other SoundTouch™ presets. Controller can be placed almost anywhere or mounted to a wall. Powered by four AA batteries.
