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

Yes. SoundTouch® systems can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows Media Player.
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.
Can I stream different music to different rooms?
Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch® products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customise zones to play what you want where you want.

The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8, 10; 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.
Can I play stored music from an NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive on SoundTouch® systems?
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.

Does the system support Bluetooth®?
Yes. Users can wirelessly stream music from a Bluetooth® device to listen to even more sources, such as YouTube.

What is the acoustic technology in the SoundTouch® 10 system?
The system has a single transducer that delivers our best performance from a transducer of its size. It is precisely angled to deliver balanced sound throughout the room with performance that seems to defy the small size of the system.
