Won't play directly from phone
I don't know why Bose won't fix this so that we can play music files directly from the phone or tablet. It seems strange that all other inferior systems (Sony, Yamaha, etc...) allows you to connect and play directly from your phone. I expected a lot more from Bose. Really disappointed.

Not good
Airplay does not work, for the price, is better to buy an Apple TV, only thing you will not have is the multy room set up capability, that personally i don't need

Internet radio great, Existing music library bad
The Bad:
- The app is a little average, you can set 6 favorites but there is no text displaying which favorite is assigned to which number.
- It wont recognise my NAS or the music i store on it.
- It wont let me stream from my phone.
- You must also have premium Spotify to get any Spotify functionality to work.
- No visual representation of the app on the tv (must us another device to setup).
- No visual representation on the Bose receiver other then the word "SoundTouch"

The good things:
- Works well with Internet radio (a lot of stations are listed)
- Your favorites get remembered to the Bose universal remote so you dont need your phone to start a station
- The app lets you turn on/off the unit

Problems with the wireless connection
Hello, I´ve two SA-4 connected with wireless adapter, one for each, and we often play music from a Spotify account. Sometimes the connection fails for one o two seconds and it happens very often. I think the problem is the wifi connections in 2.4 GHz, so I need to know if the SoundTouch wireless adapter works with 5.0 GHz. Thanks!

Very disappointed
I got this because I was told it would stream any music service. Even the description says stream music apps "like"... And names the only apps. They should have put "only" those apps. The word like led me to believe the salesman was correct. Why would I want to cancel my current music service to use those only Bose allows. It is a paperweight right now on my computer desk. Bose, your quality is legend, technology for this is horrible.

The connectivity is poor. I am able to start a song either through Spotify or other options that are provided, but it's rare when I'm able to listen to a whole song. It will suddenly stop playing and a few minutes later it will randomly start playing the next song. I have no problems streaming music on other devices, and i even tried upgrading Internet speed hoping it would allow me to enjoy using this $100 adapter. But to no avail.

does the job, but can do lot more
the internet radios listed are very limited and there are plenty of other stations so the easiest way is to allow the phone to connect and paly the songs from the phone, or can you pls advice on how to add a new internet radio station to the soundtouch app.
