Exploring music with SoundTouch
The Wave SoundTouch music system is part of an entire family of wireless products, from one-piece music systems to home cinema. They all work together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms. With SoundTouch, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before.
Fast, simple control of all your music
Experience your favourite music from your SoundTouch speaker with the SoundTouch app. SoundTouch lets you take total control of your listening experience, right from your smartphone or tablet. Browse popular music services like Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio stations through TuneIn, or your stored music library. Easily personalise presets for one-touch access to the music you love and control one or many SoundTouch speakers around your home.
The Wave® SoundTouch® system sets up easily in minutes. The app helps walk you through the steps. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, and your streaming music sources and AM/FM stations are available at the touch of a preset. A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room, and the convenient touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. You hear your music with clear, full, accurate sound. All from a music system that fits virtually anywhere: living room end table, kitchen counter or bedside table.
Ease of use
Proprietary Bose technologies automatically perform many of the adjustments needed for high-performance audio. So you can enjoy the performance of a large, multi-component stereo without a row of controls. The large, easy-to-read display shows the music source, time and more. And the dual alarms are great for working couples who have to wake up at different times. If you like to snooze in the morning, just tap the top of your system to buy some extra time.

Is the speaker compatible with products from the Bose Home Speaker family?
The products cannot be grouped together through a Bose app. SoundTouch products use the SoundTouch app, while the Bose Home Speaker family uses the Bose Music app. However, Apple device owners can use Apple AirPlay 2 to group the Wave SoundTouch music system with Bose Home Speaker family products for multi-room synchronised playback. Apple AirPlay 2 requires a Wi-Fi connection.
What different audio devices can I play through the Wave® SoundTouch® music system IV?
Aside from its built-in AM/FM radio and CD/MP3 CD player, the Wave® SoundTouch® music system IV can play wireless audio from most of today’s portable music devices, including smartphones and tablets. The standard 3.5-mm Aux IN input accepts MP3 and DVD/CD players and even older audio cassette players. In addition, you can stream music over your home Wi-Fi® network.
Does the Wave® SoundTouch® music system IV offer dual independent alarms?
Yes. Two different wake-up times may be set, customised for each person’s preferences (Internet radio station, CD, AM/FM radio station or beep etc.). This is handy if two people wake up at different times.

How many systems can I have on my network at any one time?

The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8 and 10; 64-bit Macs running OSX 10.6.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS5 and later; and Android devices running Android 4.1 and later.
Can I play stored music from a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive on SoundTouch® systems?
