Hi Gilberto, 

 

Thank you for the post. The SoundTouch 520 does have an adapter where you can connect to it with a Bluetooth device. Inherently the KD-2070 does not have Bluetooth but you could get a Bluetooth adapter to connect to the turntable and then connect the adapter to the 520. One thing to note is that you will most likely need a pre-amp to raise the output of the turntable to be used by a Bluetooth adapter. You could also use our SoundTouch Wireless Link with the introduction of our wired input rebroadcast feature mentioned in the article HERE and then use our SoundTouch app to send the stream to the 520. You will still need a preamp for this configuration as well. 

 

Please let us know if you have any other questions! 

 

Kind Regards

i want to thank you for your support, and i have another question, as i mentioned before i have a sound touch 520, but i   also have a ps48III and its 5 satellite speakers, but i don’t have the media center, so i wish to know if the Bose SoundTouch WirelessLink Adapter is able to be connected with the 9 pin mini din cable to the ps48III and approach the soundtouch connectibity to expand my network. i would be so happy if i have both equipments working together. thanks in advance for your support.

Hi there,

 

Good question.  The PS48III and speakers will only connect to a compatible media center (labeled AV38 or AV48) so you would need to have one of those to utilize the speakers and the ST wireless link adapter.

 

Best,

Brandon
