Can I connect my Bose Solo 5 to My Soundtouch system?


In working with a client this week to expand their Bose system, the question arose, “Can’t I just install a Solo 5 for my bedroom TV and play my Soundtouch music through the Solo 5?”. The answer is no. Although the Solo 5 is an inexpensive way to improve TV sound, it is not Soundtouch compatible. When purchasing new Bose products for your system, always confirm they are Soundtouch compatible. In addition to the Solo 5, a few of the more popular Bose products that are not Soundtouch compatible are the AM-16 Home speaker system, any Bluetooth speaker, Soundbar 500, and the Soundbar 700. Although it was quite cumbersome, there is a workaround around for the Solo 5. You can add Bose Soundtouch Adapter to a TV input and then select that TV input when you want to play Soundtouch music through the Solo 5. Please visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
