Bose SoundTouch 120, already Out of Stock?

Hello everybody, two mounth ago I bought Bose SoundTouch 120 for 1300€.
Today I go on Bose site and I see that this model is already out of stock, replaced by SoundTouch 300 + Bass Module (1.599,99€).
Can you describe me the difference between these models?
Design is different, but which features are different? What about sounds reproduced?
Regards
Thomas

Re: Bose SoundTouch 120, already Out of Stock?

I have observed that the 300 sound bar no longer can be mounted on a wall, no flex mount.
Acoustimass bass module is sold separately.
Otherwise:
Sound Touch appears to be built in, no adaptor.
Looks like a pretty robust build.
The speaker array looks quite good. 
The are phase guides for side/rear projection.
New wireless rear speaker technology.
Much more hefty looking bass module.
4K
A quick Google search will reveal reviews that have been pretty positive.
There are some videos on YouTube where you can see the speaker break down.

Not sure about the difference between the new system, but I'm in the same boat as you.  I'm bought the SoundTouch 130 a few months ago.  Now it has been discontinued.  I think it has something to do with the SoundTouch 120 & 130 not being able to support HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2.  
Bose has not commented on why they did away with these systems. 😔

I hope that sound quality is the same and also multimedia feature are the same.

Hi all,
 
Rickatk is correct in his answers. One thing to note, although the bracket is no longer flex mount, we do have the WB-300 Wall Bracket to wall mount the ST300 soundbar. In addition, the ST300 also supports Near Field Communication to make Bluetooth pairing easier if your mobile device supports NFC. With the rising popularity of 4K and 4K HDR we wanted our customers to be able to take full advantage of the technology.
 
Thank you

Which Bose system are you referring to? Some will pass through 4K. See 4K posts on this forum.
Your TV should be able to upscale the HD signal coming from your Bose device. While not native, upscaling is supposed to work quite well.
Unfortunately, still no answers from the Bose reps on this forum about 4K and HDMI 2.2 firmware updates.
