I was told by 2 different salemen that this was possible. Due to cost i bought just the bar and sub. Hooked it up and was disappointed with sound quality. Went out and bought 2 soundtouch 10 and they overcame the shortcomings of the soundbar when listening to music through their app. Using in 5.1 wasnt/isnt possible or i just cant find the directions. I took them back and bought the VI300 and they SUCK
If someone can confirm one way or the other it would be appreciated.
Right now my 200 sony reciever and 250 polk hometheather system sound way better.
im thinking about boxing it all up and taking it back.
Bose was a great speaker company but they are severly failing at being a technology company. Thinking about maybe getting Sonos instead.

In order to get surround sound from the SoundTouch 300, you must use the Virtually Invisible 300 speakers. Using two SoundTouch 10 speakers will not work, as there is no way to send the surround channels directly to them.
