The SoundTouch™ 30 Wi-Fi® music system lets you enjoy Internet radio, Pandora® and your digital music library with just the touch of a button. The system connects to your home network for wireless operation. Internet radio and popular music services are built in, so you'll have a world of music conveniently available at your fingertips.
The SoundTouch™ 30 is compact enough to fit just about anywhere. It utilizes exclusive waveguide technology engineered around a high-performance woofer to produce deep, rich sound that can fill the largest room of your home.
The free SoundTouch™ app from Bose® gives you easy control of the music using your smartphone or tablet of choice. 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.
You can use the six preset buttons to easily select your music source.
Don't have your smartphone handy? No problem. You can access all six presets either with the included remote, or simply by using the control buttons on top of the SoundTouch™ 30.
The SoundTouch™ 30 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 soundtracks 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.
My wife and technology are at constant odds. She embraces it but doesn't have the patience to deal with the learning curve that comes with it. This system sounds great and is easy to use. As she wanted more features it was just a simple step to learn. She now uses her phone to find the music she wants and has adapted to this technology. Ours is coupled with the outdoor speaker system and is amazing. I could not be happier.
Pros: Ease of use and versatility
I had the small one before and it pales in comparison to this unit. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs music in their home. It's a great system. Bigger footprint than I was expecting but so worth it. Love using my iPhone to control the music and volume.
Pros: iPhone compatible, more than loud enough, Bose sound quality is hard to beat.
Cons: Large footprint, unit is HEAVY.
I purchased the Sound Touch 30 for my wife's birthday and it is fantastic. I use all Apple products and it took about 10-15 minutes to create an account, connect to WiFi, and get the software downloaded and updated. A very simple process; the sound is amazing. We had a SoundDock and this SoundTouch 30 blows it away. So much sound out of a small package, we love it.
The SoundTouch iPhone app is not bad, but not great. Bose needs to include Spotify, which blows away Pandora on every level. The good thing is you can use AirPlay from the Spotify app on the iPhone and it works great. Overall, very easy setup and amazing sound. I would buy again without hesitation.
Pros: -Easy Setup. -Amazing sound. -It's a Bose. -WiFi use so you can keep your iPhone on you while you play music.
Cons: -Slightly pricey (but worth it).
Great product from Bose. Works as expected and setup is really easy. The sound quality is excellent. I have this in my living room and got a sound touch 20 for my kitchen. I love the ease of just hitting a button on the remote for my favorite pandora station. Also love the app interface and the ability to control both systems from my phone and ipad. This is a product that should get even better as bose develops the app further and adds more services.
Pros: Great sound quality, great design, easy setup, one touch music playback, nice OLED screen, easy to expand the system to multiple rooms.
Cons: Little pricey, not enough music services yet (I'm sure this will get better),
Sounds great and functions as listed.
Pros: Small with great sound, lives up to the Bose name.
Cons: Price is too high.
This is a great product. It is easy to set up. It is easy to use and the sound is terrific. What more be said Bose has a winner.

The socket that the plug wire plus into on the unit says "120V". Given that my assumption would be that it is not compatible. I would contact Bose to ask specifically. [ Lizabeth Aug 28, 2014 ]
I am really depressed as I bought this to take with me overseas and was expecting a universal voltage on this new model. Sadly , Bose makes this with only 110 VOLT for sale in USA It will not work with 220 volt ! I have no option to buy a step down transformer and pray it does not burn up . A really expensive speaker should have 110/220 v . Tell Bose to learn from Apple ! [ Karan Aug 28, 2014 ]
yes, it fiils my formal dining room and formal living room which is approximately more than 700 sq ft [ JASON Mar 10, 2014 ]
More than enough power to fill 400 sq ft, and more. [ ALLAN W Mar 10, 2014 ]
Thank you, yes, it helps. [ May Mar 10, 2014 ]
Define toy and with great sound [ JOSEPH R Mar 10, 2014 ]
My apartment living room is about 250 sq ft (I have 12' ceilings) and the sound is more than powerful. At a comfortable listening volume, meaning, the volume not even halfway to highest, it sounds terrific. I'm not a music "tech-y", but I love great-sounding music and am very happy with the Bose SoundTouch. [ Zenaida Mar 10, 2014 ]
Yes, it is moe than enough to generate sound to fill a 400 sq. ft. room. I am using my SoundTouch 30 between my kitchen and family rooms. The area is more than 1000 sq. ft. Hope it helps. [ Thomas Mar 10, 2014 ]
