ACOUSTIMASS 300 - CONNECT WITH 3.5MM WIRE ADVANTAGES?

I have moved the Acoustimass Base Module closer to the ST300. I do have a 3.5mm stereo cable.

 

Q1. Is there any disadvantage in audio quality if I decide to connect with this cable, instead of wireless?

Q2. Should I reset the ST300 to factory settings via the remote control before connecting it via the cable? Reason I ask is it might otherwise still want to connect wirelessly. 

Q3. Anyone notice better Base response with wired connection?

Re: ACOUSTIMASS 300 - CONNECT WITH 3.5MM WIRE ADVANTAGES?

To answer you questions:

Q1 - the Bass Module stinks on wireless unless it is 1-2ft away from the bar. I had mine <2ft away wireless and it was great, when I moved it to ~8ft away its junk. I have tried changing 5ghz wifi channels and moving interference as far away as possible. You will get distortion and at low volume noise that sounds like its blown.

Q2 - I would just in case

Q3 - Yes

 

Its confusing how well the wireless speaker bridges work yet the Bass connectivity is horrible unless you wire it.
