Enjoy it all with the rich, room-filling sound of the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system. This small, versatile system fits in just about anywhere around your home where you want to enjoy your music—living room, kitchen, bedroom. If you have a home Wi-Fi® network, you have everything you need. Just a few quick steps, and your music is available at the touch of a button on the included remote.
  • Lifelike, room-filling sound for FM/AM radio, CDs, streaming and stored music
  • Your existing home Wi-Fi network is all you need
  • Waveguide speaker technology delivers deep, high-performance sound
  • Free SoundTouch™ app for your computer, smartphone or tablet
  • Customize zones for different music in different rooms, or play the same music in every room (with additional SoundTouch™ products)

High-performance sound

The Wave® SoundTouch™ system features the legendary performance of the award-winning Wave® music system. Patented waveguide speaker technology delivers clear, size-defying sound you won’t expect from a system this size.

Elegant simplicity

Just plug in the system and you're ready to go. The touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, eliminating moving CD shelves or doors. This system fits virtually anywhere in your home.

Wake up to convenience

Addicted to the snooze control? We've made it easy enough to trigger in your sleep. When the alarm or music comes on, just tap the top of your Wave® SoundTouch™ music system. No remotes or buttons to locate. And our dual independent alarms let early birds rise without having to reset the wakeup time for a late-sleeping partner. Nice. And practical.

Ease of use

The advanced FM/AM tuner delivers better radio reception. More song and station information now appears on the large visual display, with adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming.

A slim infrared remote control lets you conveniently operate all system functions from anywhere in the room. You can instantly access your favorite stations with six FM and six AM presets, and even move through your iTunes® or Internet radio playlists with certain custom packages.

Welcome to the world of streaming music

Not just another speaker

SoundTouch™ is an entirely new way to stream music wirelessly around your home, easier than ever before. SoundTouch™ systems connect directly to your favorite Internet stations and streaming music sources like Deezer, Pandora®, Spotify® and iHeartRadio, putting them right at your fingertips. Wi-Fi streaming is fast becoming the new listening standard. We’ve made it easier and more rewarding for you to enjoy.

Music is one touch away

When it comes to music, you know what you like. That’s why the Wave® SoundTouch™ system remote features six presets that can easily be set (and changed) directly on the remote or with the free SoundTouch™ app. Just like that, your favorite music is ready at the touch of a button. It’s a revolutionary approach that makes streaming music as easy as turning on a light—only much more fun.

Powerful SoundTouch™ app

The SoundTouch™ app makes it easy to explore new music and organize what you have. Use it to set up the system on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then the fun begins. You can drag and drop any music source—a favorite album on Spotify®, an iTunes® playlist, an Internet radio station—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app to find more music. Browse the online musical universe or files from your own music library. You can also use the app to manage multiple systems 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—from small and portable speakers to outdoor systems and 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 on the patio.

  • Headphone jack for private listening
  • On/off/snooze with just a simple tap
  • Large visual display with song and station information, plus adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love It! but a question My wife loves the wave soundtouch I bought her. I had bought a soundtouch just a month before and it sits in my rec room. Only question, can I connect a multi-cd changer to the soundtouch wave?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from System 4 stars, SoundTouch app 1 star. Love the system-hate the app!!!! I purchased the wave soundtouch music system with a sound touch 30 speaker. The app works seamlessly with my home wifi. A word on my setup, I have a main desktop PC running Win7. All docs, music, files are housed there on C drive and backed up on an external drive. I access all files from the main desktop PC with one of two laptops (also running win7pro) or my kindle tablet. I had no issues syncing the speaker or clock radio to my wifi network. I had no issues installing the soundtouch app (sta) to my andriod phone, kindle, laptops or pc. My issue with the app is that there is no way to manage a playlist which defeats the purpose of having an app. Yes, the speakers has have presets which are nice if you are having a party or something or listen to the same thing daily however, I currently have over 400 cds ripped to my c drive with another 300+ to go (going all digital-YAAAAAAYYYY!). Anyway, my music choice depends on the kind of day that I am having. This app will not allow you to create a playlist from within the app. You have to go to the actual computer where the music is stored, open media player and create a playlist, then play the playlist from within the app. If you are already listening to one song and decide on your next song, there is no way to queue it up (to instruct the app to play the next song or songs that you want to hear at the conclusion of the one currently being played). You actually have to wait for the current song to finish playing before playing the next song. HUGE FAIL! If the main computer housing the music is upstairs and I am on the first floor or the basement even, I have to go all the way up in order to create a playlist. I am not ready to send the hardware back yet but they need to improve this app immediately-it cannot be that hard!!!! Hence the low score. so far I give the system 5 stars, the app gets 1 star. When they upgrade the app, I will upgrade my review. COME ON BOSE, REALLY????FROM BOSE - Thanks for your review. We will pass your feedback on to our product teams. Additionally, we have a “Feature Requests” section on our SoundTouch Owner’s Community which is regularly monitored by our moderators and engineers. You can also post any suggestions there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome The system is everything we hoped for and more. We bought this model to play CD's and discovered the music options are endless! Sound quality is great as well. Wi-fi app was a breeze to set up on multiple devices. For the money I think the SoundTouch is a bargain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose Delivers Once Again As always, Bose delivers an exceptional product. My husband bought this in the High Gloss Pearl and it's beautiful. Set-up was a breeze to incorporate the soundtouch technology and I've had no issues with using the app. This is a nice addition to our Bose family of products we use (earbuds, soundlink, sound dock, lifestyle system, etc). You can't beat great quality sound!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound with design flaws We purchased the SoundTouch system and the Soundtouch portable speaker. the sound quality in both is great! The coordination between the two is irksome. I can put a CD in a laptop, play via iTunes and direct the output to both devices - however if the CD is in the SoundTouch its self then it has no way to send to the portable speaker. In fact when playing a CD the bose app calls the source "other" as though the built in CD is completely foreign to it. So in short, the sound is great! The design is weird.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good apart from losing time this is the second sound touch we have, the first being the sound touch 20.Unit works and sounds well apart from its inability to keep the right time. Every week needs an adjustment of two to three minutes to get up to the correct time. I would have though a unit such as this would have automatic time synchronisation, but at the very least be able to hold the correct time once set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wave III Radio Over many years I have purchased three Wave Radio's III and enjoyed trouble free enjoyment from all three which are still working. I am about to purchase one more and highly recommend this product. I am waiting for the time when the Wave Radio with a CD player has been perfected and then I may order one of those as well. A friend ordered the one with the CD player and it quit working after a year or two. From the current reviews on Bose W-Site my impression is that the problem has not been resolved with the CD player. For now just the radio is a great option.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not last Brought 2 systems with the extra disc player. After having the system for awhile.. The disc player stopped working on both systems in 2 separate households. Very disappointed in the fact that this system did not meet the quality and longevity life I expected from Bose.
