Lifestyle 525 speakers on another Reciever

Since I am not counting on Bose to support Airplay 2 on any older systems I am looking at a new reciever that will. Is it possible to use my 5.1 speakers on a different reciever?

Hello lw9090,

 

Thank you for the question.

 

I wouldn't suggest using that speaker package on a 3rd party receiver since they are designed to work specifically for that Bose Console and Acoustimass. This could cause damage to the speakers and the receiver. 

 

We do make speaker packages that are designed to work with receivers such as the Acoustimass 10.

 

As for Airplay 2, this will be coming to SoundTouch systems that are Bluetooth capable and our new Smart Home products sometime in 2019. Keep an eye out on the community for more details.

Will Airplay 2 be available on series II devices (which already have Airplay 1)?

Hi hdow,

 

Thanks for the question!  The SoundTouch systems with Airplay 1 will not be able to integrate with Airplay 2 due to hardware limitations.

 

Warm Regards,
