What customers say about "Features"
Bose SoundTouch 130 Home Theater System
  • Sound is awesome and easy to install.
  • If you are new to surround sound or looking for a minimal install, small footprint sound solution this Bose unit is going to impress you.
  • I do like the voice enhancement setting as well as the ability to control Bass, Treble and the Center channel.
  • It did take a while to unpack and get things set up and is not as easy as some say.
  • I also think that wireless speaker adapter should have been integrated into the main control center instead of a separate piece.
Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, works with Alexa
  • Set up was a breeze and the system changes effortlessly between inputs just by powering on the media format you are using.
  • Great. It was easy to install and sync up with my TV. I can hear clear sound from many points in my open floorplan.
  • This is a Great product and easy to install. Template is available that makes the installation easy to do compared to other products where you have to do a lot of measurements.
  • Stereo TV shows as well as Dolby Digital shows, sound great.
  • Best Soundbar i ever had , Please improve the sound touch app and Voice assistance (ALEXA and Google Home) compatability better and make it as good as the Remote .
  • Spotify playlists are buried down below (should be the very top of the list).

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Bose SoundTouch 130 Home Theater System
  • Bluetooth works great for streaming and this unit and remote are attractive and easy to use.
  • As the system is attached to my WiFi, it plays music from any and all other devices on my network.
  • The Bluetooth acoustimass module started acting up and lost its Bluetooth connection.
  • The bluetooth is also incredibly poor.
  • Beware though, if your subwoofer cuts out, it may be a result of the wi-fi adapter. It causes interference with the signal. After unplugging it, I have had no issues since.
Bose SoundTouch 300 Soundbar, works with Alexa
  • The Bose soundbar is an excellent speaker that can be used for all wifi and Bluetooth devises.
  • Love the fact that this soundbar has both, the Bluetooth and wifi feature!
  • Moreover, it includes Bluetooth with NFC and pairs easily with BT devices to allow video and music playback.
  • Love that it connects with one HDMI cable. Very good sound.
  • Do Not Buy This Product if you plan to use WiFi! The set up is insanely complicated -- we have now spent more than four hours and it still does not work and we are experienced with computers and sound systems.
