Before you begin

From time to time, updates will be available for your SoundTouch system. When available, the SoundTouch app will prompt you to update upon opening the app. You can also manually check if an update is available in the SoundTouch app by doing the following steps:

In the SoundTouch app, select Menu (≡) > Settings > Speaker Settings. On desktops and tablets, if the Menu icon (≡) is not visible, the slide out menu might already be open

Select UPDATE. If the UPDATE button appears grayed out, there is no update currently available for your system

Note: Updates are released in batches, so not all users receive updates at the same time. It can take up to 2 weeks from a release date before the latest update is available for your system.

If you're experiencing issues with an update, you can update manually by following the steps below.

Manually updating with a USB cable

You will need a USB A to Micro USB cable to perform these steps.

Updates for your SoundTouch system can be done through the SoundTouch wireless adapter

At the prompt, click SAVE to save the Update.stu 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.stu file in the footer or header of your browser’s window, or in your Downloads folder

Connect a USB cable from your computer to the Micro-USB jack (Setup A) on the back of your SoundTouch wireless adapter

Using your web browser, go to http://203.0.113.1:17008/update.html

Note: This link will only work if your system is powered on and connected to a USB jack on your computer

At the update screen, select "CHOOSE FILE" (If the button doesn't work, click the blank field to the right of "CHOOSE FILE")

In the file selection window, find and select the Update.stu file you downloaded in step 2. Once selected, the file name appears in the field to the right of the "CHOOSE FILE" button

Click "UPLOAD" and wait while the update installs:

A progress bar in the browser window will show the update status

Once installed, your system will reboot

Updating with a USB thumb drive (alternate method)

If a USB A to Micro USB cable is not available, you can also update with a USB thumb drive. Follow these steps:

At the prompt, click SAVE to save the Update.stu 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.stu file in the footer or header of your browser’s window, or in your Downloads folder

Copy the update file onto a USB drive

  • Insert a USB drive into a USB port on your computer
  • Copy or drag and drop the Update.stu file onto the USB drive
  • Eject the USB drive from the USB port

Insert the USB drive into the SETUP B connector on the SoundTouch wireless adapter

Disconnect the system's power cord

On the back of the SoundTouch wireless adapter, press and hold the Control button to the left of the Wi-Fi indicator

While holding the Control button, plug the power cord back into your system

Wait three seconds then release the Control button.

The white Wi-Fi indicator on the adapter will show varied blink patterns. This may take up to 10 minutes. The adapter will then reboot and show a solid amber Wi-Fi indicator when complete

Open the SoundTouch app on your mobile device or computer. Once logged into the app, add the system to your account (if needed)
