Re: Soundtouch 300 -soundbar 700

I own a soundtouch 300 with bade unit and virtually invisible rear speaker, does anybody know if the base unit and or rear speaker work with the new soundbar 700? Thanks

Re: Soundtouch 300 -soundbar 700

From my understanding looking at the FAQ section the units are only compatible between the 500 and 700 ranges. If you’ve not noticed 700 seems to be the premium version, which looks exactly like the current 300. The 500 seems to be the budget version (still pricy though).

On another note, apart from Alexa, what is the difference between the 300 and 700? I cannot believe they’ve not added ATMOS! Have they missed a trick, because to me there is no point in even upgrading

Hello @Leyburn,

 

Thank you for the question.

 

Yes, they are compatible with the Soundbar 500 and 700, this also goes for the new subwoofer and wireless rear channels, they are backward compatible.

Joel.

I am confused. On one thread you’re saying the soundbars are not comparable with the SoundTouch series, but here you are - if I am reading it right.

I have a SoundTouch 300 and AM 300. If I updated to a Soundbar 700, would this connect me the to my AM300 and the other way round. If I kept the SoundTouch 300 and upgraded the sub to a 700

Re: Soundtouch 300 -soundbar 700

@Joel_D can you please clarify this? And if you change the soundtouch 300 for a soundbar 700. Will the 700 work with the acoustimass 300 and vi300's? And with other soundtouch products? On the website it clearly says it isn't working.

Re: Soundtouch 300 -soundbar 700

Hello All,

 

Yes, the accessory speakers for both the SoundTouch 300 and Soundbar 700 WILL work together. This means if you already have the Acoustimass 300 and Virtually Invisible 300 rear channels and you purchase a Soundbar 700, they will work.

 

Also, if you already have the SoundTouch 300 and want to purchase the new bass module or new wireless rear channels, they will work.

 

Warm Regards,

Joel

Hi tomhafkamp,

 

As for working with "other SoundTouch products", these are only designed to work with the SoundTouch 300 and the new Soundbar 500/700.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Regards,

Joel

Thanks Joel this clarrifies a lot! I atleast know now that if I want to replace the soundbar with a brand new 700 that it will work together with my older acoustimass 300 and soundtouch boxes!

Re: Soundtouch 300 -soundbar 700

Hi @tomhafkamp,

 

I just want to also bring up, the Soundbar 500/700 is not compatible with the SoundTouch application for music streaming services. The new Smart Home products will work the new Bose Music app only. 

 

Warm Regards,

Joel
