Wake up to convenience
Addicted to the snooze control? We've made it easy enough to trigger in your sleep. When the alarm or music comes on, just tap the top of your Wave® SoundTouch™ music system. No remotes or buttons to locate. And our dual independent alarms let early birds rise without having to reset the wakeup time for a late-sleeping partner. Nice. And practical.
Ease of use
The advanced FM/AM tuner delivers better radio reception. More song and station information now appears on the large visual display, with adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming.
A slim infrared remote control lets you conveniently operate all system functions from anywhere in the room. You can instantly access your favorite stations with six FM and six AM presets, and even move through your iTunes or Internet radio playlists with certain custom packages.
Welcome to the world of streaming music
Not just another speaker
SoundTouch™ is an entirely new way to stream music wirelessly around your home, easier than ever before. SoundTouch™ systems connect directly to your favorite Internet stations and streaming music sources like Deezer and Spotify®, putting them right at your fingertips. Wi-Fi streaming is fast becoming the new listening standard. We’ve made it easier and more rewarding for you to enjoy.
Music is one touch away
When it comes to music, you know what you like. That’s why the Wave® SoundTouch™ system remote features six presets that can easily be set (and changed) directly on the remote or with the free SoundTouch™ app. Just like that, your favorite music is ready at the touch of a button. It’s a revolutionary approach that makes streaming music as easy as turning on a light—only much more fun.
Powerful SoundTouch™ app
The SoundTouch™ app makes it easy to explore new music and organize what you have. Use it to set up the system on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then the fun begins. You can drag and drop any music source—a favorite album on Spotify®, an iTunes playlist, an Internet radio station—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app to find more music. Browse the online musical universe or files from your own music library. You can also use the app to manage multiple systems in different rooms.
Built for multi-room audio
If you truly love music, you want it to flow through your home. That’s why there’s a SoundTouch™ system for every room—from small and portable speakers to outdoor systems and home theater. Start with any one SoundTouch™ system, and keep adding them whenever you’d like. These systems work together to create a multi-room listening experience, so you can play the same music everywhere or listen to different music in different rooms—even on the patio.

The standard 3.5 mm AUX IN input accepts MP3 and DVD/CD players, music phones and even older audio cassette players. In addition, with SoundTouch™, you can stream music at the touch of a button.
Does the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system offer dual independent alarms?
Yes. Two different wakeup times may be set, customized for each person's preferences (radio station or beep, volume, etc.). This is handy if two people wake at different times.
How many CDs can I load into the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system?
The Wave® SoundTouch™ music system has one CD slot.
Can I use headphones with the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system?

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch™ system?
All you need is a home Wi-Fi network and a smartphone or tablet. Everything else required is included in the box.
Are SoundTouch™ systems Bluetooth® compatible?
No. The Wave® SoundTouch™ music system is designed for use in the home on your Wi-Fi® network. Bluetooth technology is best-suited for mobile on-the-go applications where close-range connections are generally preferred.

SoundTouch™ systems let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play music services like Deezer and Spotify®.
Can SoundTouch™ systems be used in a public Wi-Fi® spot (airports, coffee shops, etc.)?

How many systems can I have on my network at one time?
It depends on the bandwidth of your home Wi-Fi network. For most homes, we expect you can have up to four systems connected wirelessly. For more than four rooms, we recommend using Ethernet wired connections to some of them.

Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch™ products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customize zones to play what you want where you want.
What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch™ app?
The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8; 64-bit Macs running OSX 10.6.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS5 and later; Android™ devices running Android 4.03 and later.

Yes, SoundTouch™ systems are compatible with select NAS drives, including Synology’s DiskStation and Western Digital’s My Cloud™, so you can stream your personal music library even while your computer is off.
What audio formats are supported by SoundTouch™ systems?
Right now, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC and Apple Lossless formats are supported. We plan to add FLAC as part of a software update in early 2014.
Can I stream music from multiple computers using SoundTouch™ systems?

No. SoundTouch™ systems are designed to stream Internet radio, music services or music stored on a computer (or NAS, as planned for in the future).
Can I set the presets on the remote itself?
Yes. Just press and hold a preset to save whatever you're currently listening to. Note that you can also use the SoundTouch™ app to drag and drop presets from your computer or smart device.
What is the Wave® SoundTouch™ music system warranty period?
