    I’ve just bought two of these. I unboxed and set up the first speaker, failed to work. Unboxed the second speaker, failed to work after minutes. DON’T BUY!!

    If you connect 2 of them together can you still use them both on bluetooth or aux?

    Lol, I have both. The soundtouch is one of the worst sounding speakers I have (second to my Mum's old radio). The soundlink mini 2 has more bass and sounds better than this. The play 1 sounds a hell of a lot better as well.
    After playing the sonos, when I started using the Bose, my friend went "That sounds crap" and rightly so.
    Not to be a Bose hater because I have quite a few products from them, it just sucks that the sound wasn't good. The Soundtouch 20 is a hell of a lot better than the 10 so I guess I would save up and go for that

    It looks great! It may be a stupid question but does it work with an ipod touch? (version 4)

    i know its witeless but does it have the option to connect via wire? my lg tv has crappy sound so need speaker but soundbars are stupidly expensive

      Yes, it has an AUX input.

      +HeavenlyClassic TheMightyHC If you're looking for a cheap alternative, try hooking up a 3 piece computer speaker system (the 3rd piece being a subwoofer). These generally start around $25 and offer tremendous bang for the buck. I have one connected to my TV, and when I turn it up, the bass literally shakes the house. :-)

    why isn't there just a simple plug and connect?

    • Davis Vanderslice

      +Mace it's a bad trend in your opinion, which is valid. You have to remember though, we are a small part of the population. Not everyone can buy a raspi and make this happen for $50. That's where such products come into play.

      @Davis Vanderslice yeah but these added "features" come at a cost. Its like the market delivering a smart TV when consumers just want a quality TV picture.
      I know you might not be on the engineering team for this but nonetheless, its a bad trend.

      +Mace it has a proprietary app, but you can use your own app if you want through the long range Bluetooth signal (75 ft). It also has a 3.5mm AUX jack on the back

      +Mrsaladization seriously, a wifi speaker with just Bluetooth. that's it. No proprietary app; you can connect to it like a regular device on WiFi or not. Simple.
