Bose doesn't care?
Bose charges premium for, as they claim, "years of research". However they seem don't know basics about the sound. In this app they showing full incompetence by providing volume controls on absolute scale, so when multiple speakers volume control is reduced the the quietest speakers go off the scale - switched completely silent, as opposed to adjusted proportionally. Such arrangement sheds light on who works for Bose and how much they know about the sound. At least educate your employees that loudness is relative measure - not an interval scale. Also at least test your product and explain your "engineers" that if customer wants to reduce the volume he doesn't want to loose halve of the speakers. This app not even tested, forget about "researched" into, as this is first thing in your face when you control volume of multiple speakers. Also the sub is getting switched off even though connected via 3.5 audio cable, not to mention wifi. Bose, do you care at all?
I have had Bose for many years starting with the original Wave Sound System, adding a Bose Sounddock for my iPod and then adding Bose speakers for my Desktop computer. I have always said of Bose 'It does what it says on the tin' they are utterly reliable and 'bomb proof' when it comes to hard use.
I have listened to the arguments about Sonos and Roberts and have listened and compared but I still prefer the Bose sound. Further, they are better looking than the aforementioned makes(the Sonos equivalent to the SoundTouch 20 looked like a wire waste paper basket!) and I have a wife to keep happy if it is going to be a piece of furniture.
Yes the Bose can go very loud and it can sound bass heavy but you adjust it to your comfort levels. When I have a few more pennies in the coffers I shall purchase the Sound Wave 1V because I am loath to part with my collection of CDs. I am enjoying streaming music to the SoundTouch 20, and the App is quite brilliant, but my wife wants to play her CDs in the Kitchen so the Sound Wave 1V is next on the list.
Long live Bose!
Although not very intuitive it works well, it takes a bit of getting used to with it sliding up/down for different pages, and can be confusing as to which slider turns the volume down when you have multiple systems. However, being able to add speakers to the one you are controlling is amazing, no delay or 'echo' going from room to room - we have two systems in one room which we regularly play as one filling the room with sound - blissful! To improve on the app; allow access anywhere in the world- I would like to be able to turn off/on my speakers when away from the house.
