Easy to set up, sounds okay
This review is from: Bose SoundTouch Portable Wi-Fi music system
Pros: Extreme convenience. Plug it in, or pick it up and walk into another room without stopping the music. Setup was easy on my Mac.
Cons: Basically sounds like two computer speakers taped together. Bass distorts at high volume with things like "Mad Season - Above" and the loudest setting is just loud enough. You won't be blasting any concerts with this, but I guess it sounds pretty good given its size.
Other Thoughts: I'm replacing a mid-sized Panasonic stereo with this and iTunes. This lets me get rid of all my CDs and a big bulky stereo box, but the sound is inferior and having the speakers right next to each other is painful to listen to. Still, there's the extreme convenience and space savings, and if I really care about sound quality I should be using headphones. Given that it's Bose, I'll assume this is the best sound I can get for this form factor. Not sure if it's worth $350, but will probably keep it and hopefully not regret giving up my real stereo.
