Thanks for writing in!
I'm sorry to hear about the experiences you've run into, but these two products are completely different. The SoundTouch line of speakers operate and group together using the Wi-Fi network at home whereas our Soundlink products are strictly Bluetooth. I would recommend bringing them back to the store and looking at the SoundTouch 10 if you wanted to expand the sound to other speakers.

Thanks but it would of been nice to have that advice from the Bose rep' at the time... It was a Bose store not a franchise or preferred supplier as far as I'm aware.
It's not that quite straight forward anyway Tony, I live in London, I bought it in Dubai.
Can I go into a Bose shop in the UK with this I bought in Dubai and swap/part exchange it towards the right product?
Thank you for coming back to us and leaving feedback on your experience! I'm sorry to here that you've had a bad experience.
If you have purchased in the last 30 days, you can take it to a Bose store in London as long as you have you receipt.
I hope this helps!
