Enjoy Internet radio, Pandora® and your digital music library with just the touch of a button. The SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi® music system connects to your home network and delivers deep, rich sound with crisp, clear vocals from two award-winning Jewel Cube® speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module for low tones. The system's small speakers blend elegantly into your décor, while the Acoustimass module can be hidden out of sight behind a couch or curtain. No matter where you place them, or the size and shape of your room, the ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system ensures your system will deliver excellent sound quality.
Both the Jewel Cube® speakers and SoundTouch™ controller can be conveniently wall-mounted.
The SoundTouch™ controller features a unique design that beautifully combines form and function. You can place it just about anywhere — even mount it on a wall. The SoundTouch™ controller lets you view current song or station information on its OLED display while controlling volume, skip, pause and power on/off with the touch of a button. The display also previews the music programmed on all of your presets. Simply press one of the buttons to play that music instantly.
You can also control the system from your smartphone or tablet with the free SoundTouch™ app from Bose®. The app lets you assign up to six presets from your favorite sources. Presets can be just about anything you want — an Internet radio station, a Pandora® station, a playlist from your own music library, or a favorite artist. Plus, you can use the app to play music from additional stations or services not saved in your presets.
The SoundTouch™ Stereo system is AirPlay-compatible, so you can wirelessly stream from your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad®. Enjoy great sound from your favorite music app, a collection of tunes from your library, video soundtrack or game app sound effects. You can also stream music from your laptop or desktop computer's iTunes® library.
Add more SoundTouch™ systems to create a wireless multi-room audio system that's simple to use. You can play the same music simultaneously throughout your home, or have each SoundTouch™ system play different music from a different source.

Pros: Great sound from such tiny speakers!
Cons: Had trouble with the setup, but it was corrected with Bose.
WiFi Music System: The Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System consists of two Jewel Cube speakers, an Acoustimass module, SoundTouch Controller, and SoundTouch Wireless Adapter. The speaker system lets you listen to a variety of Internet Radio stations and music services, as well as your computer's music library. It connects to the Internet and your computer via your wired (Ethernet) or wireless (WiFi) home network. You can control the system from the included SoundTouch Controller or control the system from your Apple iOS or Android device, via Bose's free SoundTouch Remote app.
Note: The Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System does not offer any analog or digital audio inputs to connect to your TV, Satellite/Cable box, or Blu-ray/DVD player.
Two Jewel Cube Speakers: The system's two Bose Jewel Cube speakers measure only 2.25" (w) x 4.5" (h) x 3.3125" (d), and weigh just 1 lb. These tiny speakers let you enjoy open, spacious sound you wouldn't expect from speakers of this size. These Jewel Cube speaker can be swiveled, allowing you to reflect sound off the walls as well as project it directly into the room. The result is full, spacious sound throughout the room; not just in one small "sweet-spot". Direct/Reflecting speaker technology delivers lifelike spaciousness from a natural balance of reflected and direct sound; similar to a live performance. You'll hear your streaming music come to life in convincing detail.
Note: Each speaker has a single 4mm threaded insert for optional Bose or universal wall brackets (018UB20B, sold separately) or stands (018UFS20B, sold separately).
Acoustimass Module: The system's Jewel Cube speakers work in concert with the hideaway, self-powered Acoustimass module to deliver a full-range sound. Exclusive technology in the module helps provide the emotional intensity you feel at a music concert. The system's Acoustimass module delivers the clarity of pure sound reproduction down to the lowest frequencies, even at the loudest levels. Because it eliminates audible distortion, you can place the Acoustimass module almost anywhere, even behind furniture, and all the sound will appear to come from the system's tiny cube speakers.
Note: The Acoustimass module features a built-in amplifier which powers its own subwoofer and the two connected Jewel Cube speakers. Proprietary speaker wire is included to connect the Jewel Cube speakers to the Acoustmass module.
ADAPTiQ Audio Calibration: The SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System's performance is customized to the acoustics of your room with the Bose ADAPTiQ audio calibration system. ADAPTiQ audio calibration system analyzes the way your room's dimensions & other variables affect sound, then automatically adjusts the sound of your speaker system to the acoustics of your room. To perform a calibration you need about 10 minutes when the room is quiet. While wearing the special headset, the system will ask you to place yourself in five different locations (sitting or standing) in your listening area as the system takes measurements in each. Audio prompts from the system will guide you through the process.
Note: The special headset supplied with the ADAPTiQ system has no speakers, but special microphones designed to be worn above the ears. It enables you to take acoustic measurements in your room during the custom equalization process. The headset has an adjustable headband and a 28' cord terminating in a pair of stereo male RCA plugs which plug into the system's RCA inputs.
SoundTouch Wireless Adapter: The included SoundTouch Wireless Adapter plugs into the system's Acoustimass module's Bose Link connector and allows you to connect to your home network and stream select Internet radio stations, online music services, and your computer's music library to the Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System. The SoundTouch Wireless Adapter offers a wired (Ethernet) or wireless (WiFi) connection to your home network. The system features a rear-panel Ethernet R-J45 port and built-in WiFi (802.11 b/g). The system's network connection must be setup initially from your Windows or Mac computer using the Bose SoundTouch App and the included microUSB-to-USB cable.
Variety Of Music Sources: The SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System supports a variety of music options; including Internet Radio, Pandora Radio, music files stored on your computer, and stored music/music apps on your Apple iOS device.
Note: You cannot stream music stored on an Android phone or from apps on an Android phone to the Bose SoundTouch system.
Six Presets: You can personalize six presets to your favorite streaming music services (Pandora/iHeart Radio) and Internet radio stations, or playlists, artists, albums, and songs from your computer's music library. The presets can easily be set, changed, and accessed directly on the system's controller or with the free SoundTouch app on your computer or iOS/Android device. You cannot set presets for AirPlay.
SoundTouch Setup App (for Windows/Mac computer): The SoundTouch app for Windows & Macintosh is required for initial setup of the Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System. The SoundTouch app lets you setup and control the Bose SoundTouch system from your Windows PC (XP/7/8) or Mac computer (OS X 10.6.8+). Simply install the SoundTouch app onto your computer on your home network and use the app to setup the Bose SoundTouch system to your wireless or wired home network. Once setup is complete, you can use this app to explore Internet radio, select online music services, or your music library from your home network and computer on the Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System.
SoundTouch Remote App (for Apple iOS/Android): Once you've completed the setup using the SoundTouch app on your computer, you can download the free SoundTouch Controller app (from the iTunes Apps store or Google Play Store) onto your Apple iOS (iOS 5.0+) or Android (4.0.3+) device so you can control the Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System from your mobile device. You'll be able to control music streaming from Internet radio, available online music services, and your computer's music library.
SoundTouch Controller: The included SoundTouch controller gives you immediate access to your music, so you don't need to use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to operate the Bose SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System. The SoundTouch controller lets you adjust the volume, skip or pause songs, and turn the SoundTouch system on/off, from across the room. The controller's OLED display even shows you what playlist or station you're listening to, as well as lets you preview the music on your other saved presets. Because the SoundTouch Controller employs Bluetooth LE (low-energy) and has a range of up to 70', you don't have to be near your SoundTouch system to control your music. It runs on 4 "AA" batteries that can last 6 to 12 months. To preserve battery time, the controller automatically goes into standby mode a few seconds after use. But it instantly wakes up anytime you place your hand near it. For added convenience, a wall-mount cradle lets you wall-mount the controller. There's a magnet in the bracket to keep the controller safely in place.
Multi-Room Configuration: The SoundTouch Stereo WiFi Music System works with other Bose SoundTouch systems (sold separately) to create a multi-room listening experience throughout your home or office. In "Play Everywhere" mode, these systems work together as one to play the same music, ideal for parties. Or, they can be used to play different music in different rooms.
Note: You can link up to four SoundTouch music systems together for a multi-room/multi-source audio experience. You are able to play the same music source or different music source on each SoundTouch system, using the SoundTouch app on your computer or iOS/Android device.
