Excerpt: I'll sum it up...this is the only way to enjoy Pandora. Great sound quality, and trouble free if you have a good Wi-Fi signal. IPhone and IPad apps make it controllable from the comfort of your chair, and also allows you to access local radio stations, internet radio, and your ITunes library on your hard drive.
The sound quality is excellent and the functionality

Summary: Just to clarify a couple of things from other reviewers. Spotify - Is now fully supported. It took some time in coming but it is here now. Any drop-off is almost always due to your own Wi-Fi and not the Bose. I have experienced not one single drop-off with both BT Homehub and my Apple Time Capsule. The sound quality is excellent and the functionality, although slightly simplistic, means that it is very simple to use.
works well as an internet radio with good sound but the soundtouch app is not very reliable

Summary: works well as an internet radio with good sound but the soundtouch app is not very reliable, I often lose contact between my tablet or PC and the Bose. Very irritating in that it will not play music streamed from my QNAP NAS using Twonky - why can't they stick to standard protocols?
Good sound quality, portable and good value for Bose

Summary: A step beyond Bose Bluetooth speakers in that this displays preset radio stations being played - such as 'Radio 4'. Fully portable with at least a three hour battery life. Works with Android and iOS but rather better with the latter as it's Airplay compatible. This not only allows you access to your iTunes library but means you can stream Spotify to the Bose System - even the free version with adverts. This the choice of music is more or less limitless.
Summary: I was at first looking a the Sonos Play set up, and to honest I was impressed. Then I came across this. Absolutely fantastic. The last time I purchased and music systems was in 1992 I bought a Pioneer Stack system, and believe me that was the dogs doodaahs. I can honestly say that I am not a Audiophile but the quality of the sound from these is brilliant.
Summary: I saw that this item had recieved only 2 stars (from two opposing reviews) and felt that I needed to contribute a review to help redress the balance. I bought the Bose portable system for my then boyfriend some five years ago and we so impressed with it. The sound quality is absolutely superb and it doesn't lose quality with volume at all.
