Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier Overview

When hooked up to any speakers, the Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier can bring you an entire world of music. Each channel on the amplifier has 100W of power to provide clear sound in any part of the house and with the SoundTouch system, you can connect it to other SoundTouch devices to play the music in every room or play different music in each room at the same time. Bluetooth is built in so you can connect the audio amplifier to your Wi-Fi and gain access to your personal song library, hit up the Internet for premium music services like Spotify and Deezer or tune into Internet Radio. Everything is controlled through the app so you can adjust the volume or the music selection from your smartphone or tablet. With three aux ports there is also the option to plug the home amplifier into non-streaming sources like a CD player.

Re install impossible
I have 5 of these in my the house, recently the NBN killed my ADSL line and they gave me a new wifi unit. I now cannot get any of my Bose units (5 in total) to reconnect? Also after the software update the system just drops out.

Love Bose but disappointed
I have been an avid Bose lover since my youth, purchased SA-5 and out speakers from Bose for my outdoor oasis I built. I was super excited to install which was easy and add the final touch. When I went to play my normal music streaming options I come to find out that Google Music and ITunes doesn’t not just automatically integrate with Bose Software. Super frustrating. How does one of the greatest speaker companies not allow me to just play what I want. They should incorporate just a Bluetooth access way to allow me to play what ever I want when I want. Sent the Amp back but kept the speakers. Bought a Yamaha amp to power speakers. Still love Bose but not going to buy any amps until they get with the 21st century. Sorry.

Very poor sound
This along with the expensive speakers that go with it has very poor sound quality and I can’t believe the speakers aren’t Bluetooth or WiFi but you have to run speaker wire to connect them. Not happy with this purchase at all ! And very disappointed in the Bose quality on this product!!!

nice and small unit
I like the unit, however, I would like to be able to control speakers A and B separately. Most amplifiers do that.

Extremely intuitive through the SoundTouch app!
I added this to our sun touch family in our house and absolutely love it it powers two of our Bose outdoor speakers and it is exactly what we needed to complete our audio experience! It’s extremely clean sound and intuitive app that helps you run it in a stereo pair or mono... love this amp!!!

Disappointing Service
I bought SA5 as like sound quality from Bose, unfortunately service provide is poor. The product when I bought promised to work with airplay and apple music, after almost 2 year finally the software update came and my product was not able to work. So, They told me to send product to service so they can change a chip to be compatible. After 3 weeks and lack of communication I received my amp and do not work with airplay. Product should be test and ready to be connected before sending back. Again loosing my time to resolve same problem. 3 time before I had used Bose service and same poor service. Now my equipment has a serial number outside and the app provide me a different serial number.

I love this amplifier
I have 3 of these and a Sound Touch 700 Soundbar. We recently built a pool house/shop, and since we already have this amp for the house & basement systems, we added a 3rd. Coupled with the Soundbar in the great room, we have an entire house and now poolside/shop filled with music. They sync up effortlessly across WiFi, so no need to run cables everywhere. The pool house has sometimes sketch WiFi access because of the distance from the house, but it runs flawlessly.

I also have 12 Amazon Alexa devices all over the house. Controlling all of these amps is as easy as saying "Alexa, play Today's Hits on Pool"

I will admit, the app kinda sucks and is in serious need of an upgrade. You can say "Alexa, volume up/down on pool" for instance, and it only goes up/down a little. I thing you should be able to say levels (as with Alexa) like, "Volume 1" for lowest or "Volume 10" for highest, with each number in between as different levels...just my 2 cents

Can this amp replace an 18 year old Bose amp with speakers and subwoofer?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2020
  Thank you for your question.
The SA-5 is designed to expand the capabilities of latest generation Bose Bluetooth and Wifi wireless distributed sound throughout your home.
The Acoustimass 6 Bose home theater system (if that is what you are referring to) could drive 4 of the cube speakers assuming they are 8 ohms each - but is not configured as a surround sound amplifier and would not fully utilize the capabilities of the SA-5.
The SA-5 amp is not designed to replace your old Bose amp, speakers, and subwoofer.
Can you split the speakers ? Have one on and one off?
Hugh S on Dec 9, 2018
  Thanks for your inquiry! No, this unit is designed to operate one stereo system (left and right speaker for single room) and is not designed to operate as two separate areas that can be individually controlled.
