Bose SoundTouch 20 111
I bought this after owning 2 other Bose speakers and loving them. I did my research. I now find that the Amazon Alexa is not able to do all the commands on the Australian version. Come on Bose update the Australian app so we can use presets and other commands. Thank you

Poor network operation
For a premium sound product the software design and operation of the networking leaves much to be desired. I have 2 Soundtouch 20s and a Soundtouch 10. I was going to expand my music setup with more Soundtouch devices earlier this year. I gave that idea up and am converting to Yamaha (my main hi-fi system is all Yamaha components).

It would be great if Bose can provide some priority to fix a longstanding issue to have these speakers operate seamlessly on home networks like other products from Sonos, Yamaha, Samsung, LG etc.

The Soundtouch 20 and 10 devices fail abysmally as consumer products because:

- I have to regularly setup each of my devices 2-3 times per week because the connection has dropped or an update is forced through the Soundtouch app on my Android tablet. Other devices - Yamaha, various TVs, android tablets, CCTV etc do not behave like this.setup

- The Soundtouch app on android is not exactly user friendly or intuitive and should provide an option to upgrade speakers or not.

- All the advice provided on the BOSE forums to resolve the connectivity issue does not definitively or actually resolve it. Configuration and checking things like static dns, wavelength band and other network settings should not be necessary (see competitors devices) for home consumers. Reboots and calling doubt on routers and other equipment is ill informed advice from a company like BOSE and again unacceptable for consumer products.

As this issue has been unresolved for several years (based on the forum threads) and my internet search for a solution, it is dissapointing that BOSE cannot resolve this significant operational problem and it certainly has impacted on my decision to change systems and actively discourage others from purchasing these units.

Quality Sound
I bought the SoundTouch 20 and 30. Very happy with the quality sound. I have several throughout the house and by the pool which provides excellent sound. Very easy to set up as well!

Very Buggy, Hard to set up
Applies equally to ST20 and 30 - when all connected together, the speakers drop out only to come back in again a few minutes later. At this price, they should not be doing this. Bose is very much aware - read the reviews, but seemingly unable or unwilling to fix the issue. It is not the wifi - unlimited giga and speakers have excellent signal. Works well with the app and spotify. Sucks royally at keeping the clock on the front screen - sometimes there, sometimes not. Nigh-on impossible to set up with the wifi they generate - seems very hit and miss - when it works, there is no reason why it did that time and not the 15 times before that. When they work, lovely sound, but the irritations make me wish I had bought something else. Bose don't seem that interested in fixing the basics on these.

Worst hi fi purchase I have ever brought.
Purchase various soundtouch speaker for each room in the house. Hardly ever used as every time you switch on they won’t connect, sync or cannot find speaker. Endless time speaking to Bose support who just suggest it is a BT internet problem. They get them working and then next day same problem. These are not cheap pieces of kit and shockingly bad experience.

I bought it 3 months back and so happy listening music. I mostly pair with my iphone via bluetooth. Sincerely speaking sound and bass work perfectly for any songs. Me and my 5 year child enjoying so much since then. I am become fan of bose after expirence soundtouch 20. It is perfect for moderate to large room even in living room it is very good. I kept my St 20 in living room which is quite big and it sound amazing even in that. Initially i want ST30 for living room but in the end i bought ST20 for its smaller size and portable. So happy that it work perfectly ggod in living room also.

Excellent sound and convenience of presets
I just bought my second SoundTouch 20. The sound is excellent. The six presets are convenient -- I just press 6 and I get my classical music, or 1 and I get NPR in the morning. But the setup app is cumbersome, and the setting of a preset has become more difficult in the past three months -- now I must do it through the TuneIn part of the app. Before I could just stream my station and press the preset for two seconds until it beeped. You need a Steve Jobs to make it simple.

Bang for your buck non-smart speaker!
I am actually listening to the speaker as I write the review. Personally not a fan of smart speakers like Google Home, Apple HomePod, Alexa, etc. I was also after a speaker similar to my trusty old BOSE Sound Dock Portable speaker.

The SoundTouch 10 while still sounding great for it's size, it just lacked that depth in the sound for my liking. The SoundTouch 30 sounds epic but it was too big for what I wanted to use it for and was out of my price range. This is where the SoundTouch 20 came in. It still offered a great sound, good size and good value!

Cosmetically - it looks the goods especially with the gloss gunmetal grey carbon-fibre like effect at the top, the front looks good with the glossy screen in the centre and brushed steel SoundTouch emblem. For it's size, it's got some weight to it!

Technicality - if you purchase one of these and want to set up SoundTouch, you need to plug it in to Ethernet first to download an update. They don't want to set up wirelessly out fo the box. Being an I.T. guy, I worked out that it must use an older wireless security setting/protocol that is not supported by many devices. A quick software update via the Ethernet cable did the trick and the SoundTouch app set up wirelessly without issue. I have it connected to my home network via wireless and operate the speaker using the SoundTouch app.

Love it. Such a good little speaker. Perfect for our front lounge/relax room.
