Baffling Bose move to abandon SoundTouch
I’m honestly shocked Bose introduced a new smart speaker line-up and discontinued support for their SoundTouch speakers. How are these speakers not going to be compatible? People have literally spent upwards of thousands of dollars only to have their systems rendered obsolete for Alexa, an addition many people couldn’t care less about. The new Soundbars are nearly identical to the ST300 but with minor changes and suddenly it’s a brand new speaker line-up. To me, it’s kind of irritating.
I haven’t heard much discussion regarding this move from Bose, so I’m curious to see what the community thinks. Are you guys supportive of this move and think I’m out of line? Or do you agree that this recent move is somewhat baffling?
Looking forward to hearing your responses!
