802.11n 5Ghz support - which Soundtouch models?

I have noticed that my recently purchased Soundtouch 10 does indeed support the 5Ghz 802.11n network. I am quite happy about this and I think you should make this known and put it on the specification page as this is a big plus.
I'd like to know which Soundtouch models support the 5Ghz mode. My guess is: all the series III models: Soundtouch 10, 20 and 30.
However, I am considering buying one of the other models for my living room: Soundtouch 220 or 520; maybe SA-5. Are these using the new dual band feature as well?
Unfortunately, your documentation is a little vague. The Soundtouch 220 page does not say anything at all and the Soundtouch 10 page says 802.11n (and b/g). As you know, 802.11n exists in 2.4Ghz band and 5Ghz band. If you live in a department complex, 2.4Ghz wireless network is next to useless as each appartment will have one and there are only 13 channels in total.

Hi Bernie_AT,
The new SoundTouch 10,20 and 30 series III speakers are 2.4 and 5Ghz compatible. To anwser your question about the home theater models the SoundTouch 120,220,130 and 520 all support 2.4 and 5Ghz.
I hope this helps with your question.

Hi Shawn,
thanks - this helps a lot. I am positively surprised about the home theater models. I thought the bundled Soundtouch Wireless Series II  did not support 5Ghz.
Well, actually it doesn't help becuase this now opens up all the options again 🙂

Thanks
Bernie
