Manually updating your SoundTouch system

Before you begin

If your system is connected to your home network, it checks for software updates every time the system is used. If an update is available, it begins downloading automatically. If an update was fully downloaded, onscreen text prompts you when powering down the console that it is ready to be installed. Your system shuts down automatically after installation. 

Updating the control console

When connected to a network with Internet access, the console will check for a software update each time it is used. If an update is available, the update will automatically download to the console. Once the update is fully downloaded, an on-screen message will appear stating "An update is ready to be installed. Install now?" when the system is powered off.

  • Be sure the bass module and wireless surround receivers are connected wirelessly to the console in order to receive any updates available for these components
  • To begin the installation, select INSTALL
  • Upon completing the installation, the system will turn off

The Lifestyle 600 and 650 systems cannot be updated through the SoundTouch app. Using the remote, press SETUP then select "Software update" to determine if a software update has been downloaded to the console. The onscreen instruction will inform you if any automatic updates are ready for installation. 

Updating the bass module

To update the bass module, it must be connected to the console wirelessly. If the bass module was connected to the console using a 3.5mm cable during the system update, the bass module will not be updated. To update the bass module, disconnect the 3.5mm cable at both ends, pair the bass module to the console and install the software again using the "Manually updating with a USB thumb drive"​ section below. 

Updating the remote control

If control console has an update for the remote paired to it, the console will update the remote within 10 minutes. When the update occurs, the remote will not be usable for about 1 minute.

Updating with a USB thumb drive (alternate method)

Note: The update must be copied to a PC-formatted USB flash drive. Use of a Mac-formatted USB flash drive is not supported due to the additional resource files written to the flash drive by the Mac OS.

Select the link below to download the update file

At the prompt, click SAVE. Save the Update.avu file to your desktop (do not rename the file). If you do not see the prompt, the file may have downloaded automatically. Look for the Update.avu file in the footer or header of your browser’s window, or in your Downloads folder.

Copy the update file onto a USB drive.

  1. Insert a USB drive into a USB port on your computer
  2. Copy or drag and drop the Update.avu file onto the USB drive
  3. Eject the USB drive from the USB port

On the remote, press "SETUP". This brings up UNIFY menu

Select "Software Update" from the UNIFY menu.

Insert USB drive into the "SERVICE" jack on the rear of the console.

Select "USB Update". This will begin the update from the USB drive

Follow the on-screen instructions.

Note: The UNIFY menu is only available after the initial setup of the Lifestyle® system is complete.
