Bose SoundTouch 20

 

A nicely designed system but sound and features are limited

Neat ‘preset’ system ; Good looks ; Clear sound

Overstated bass, lacks drive ; Limited in file support and connections

The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a mixed bag. We like the idea of preset buttons, and being able to play our networked library with relative ease.

Bose SoundTouch 20 review

 

Over the years, Sonos, once a fledgling startup, has grown up to dominate the DIY multiroom wireless audio space. Now it has plenty of competition.

The Bose SoundTouch 20 offers the convenience of both Wi-Fi and Airplay compatibility; includes Pandora, with more services on the way; high-quality sound from a quality unit.

Missing key services like Spotify; no on-the-fly playlists; no FLAC, WAV, or OGG; no high-res support; no mute or pause button on unit; setup is fiddly.

The Bose SoundTouch 20 is a likeable streaming speaker with capable performance and great sound, but it needs to support more music services.

Bose SoundTouch 20

 

As an AirPlay speaker, the Bose SoundTouch 20 is fantastic, but Bose's own SoundTouch app for multi-room audio is more limited. iOS users can rejoice, but Android users should be wary.

Excellent sound for its size. SoundTouch app and presets are incredibly easy to use and set up. AirPlay support solves a lot of the potential problems of the app.

Extremely limited selection of music services available through SoundTouch app. Requires a USB connection to set up.

Bose SoundTouch 20 Review

The is a great choice if you're looking for a single speaker for your home, but the new fills that role with a bit more panache.

Bose SoundTouch 20 Review

 

There is a good reason why Bose has a reputation for quality – it is a consistent performer in the speaker world. The Bose SoundTouch 20 has great tonal qualities that are soft on the ears and make for a great listening experience, and it pumps enough...

This speaker has warm and natural tonal qualities.

It doesn't have great sound dispersion, so when you get outside of the sweet spot, the sound loses character and definition.

If you don't want to spend the money to buy a speaker in our top three, the Bose SoundTouch 20 is a great alternative that provides good sound quality and lots of connectivity options.
