Re: Apple Airplay 2 and Bose SoundTouch...what lies ahead
Prefacing this comment with I love Bose and Apple. However Bose's current direction infuriates me that they would abandon this line. I have spent thousands in this line, directly and indirectly; personally, suggesting to my family, and to clients with a mixture of ST10's, 20's, ST300's and SA5's with an assortment of in-ceiling/wall and outdoor Bose speakers. AirPlay2 has been promised and was listed on the ST product lines webpage but removed since the launch of the Home Series. I can't help but see this a pure money grab. Additionaly just my personal preference, the ST line is much better looking than the new plastic looking home thing with screen. Keep it simple and eligant Bose, stick with what youre good at (audio) and leave the smart stuff upto the tech companies (just as I would tell Apple to stick with computers and not audio). Be agnostic and open to all platforms, why allign yourself with one (Alexa). Big thumbs down on this move.
