Do CineMate 520, 130 and 120 home theater systems have AirPlay®?
How do I update the adapter software?
SoundTouch® system software can be easily updated over the customer’s network through the free SoundTouch® app. The app will let the user know when an update is available for each connected SoundTouch® system.
Can I use the SoundTouch® system without a home network?
No. SoundTouch® systems require access to a home network, whether for wired or wireless access. Wi-Fi is supported in all SoundTouch® products for wireless access. Ethernet is available for all products except the SoundTouch® Portable system for wired access. In addition, the SoundTouch® app needs access to the same home network in order to control and configure a SoundTouch® system.
What is the wireless range of SoundTouch® products?
SoundTouch® products require a good signal from your home network to function properly. Wherever your laptop or mobile Internet devices stream media content successfully in your home today, your SoundTouch® products should also work well. Your home network range depends on many factors, including your Wi-Fi access point capabilities, the relative location of the Wi-Fi access point and Internet devices, home construction materials, the number of simultaneous Wi-Fi devices, the number and strength of adjacent Wi-Fi networks, and interfering signals, such as microwave ovens.
Will a CineMate system with SoundTouch™ work without Internet access?
Will I experience interference from other wireless devices or between SoundTouch® products?
Because there may be many Wi-Fi devices attached to your home theater systems, it is possible that there may be some interference between them. The SoundTouch® adapter comes with six-foot connectors so you can move the adapter away from sources of interference. In addition, all Wi-Fi devices share the available bandwidth of the home network. As the number of devices increases, the bandwidth demands on the home network increases at a faster multiplier than the number of devices added to the network. Also, devices located long distances from the home network access point can also reduce the overall throughput of the network. A congested home network or a widely separated network can negatively impact the music experience (e.g., audio dropouts). Beyond this, as with any wireless product, we can expect interference from other wireless devices, other wireless networks and appliances like microwave ovens.
