I'm interested in purchasing a soundbar 700. I do not want Alexa integration or to have to connect the soundbar to an internet network (either through wifi or ethernet). Is an online connection required in order to setup and/or use the soundbar as a regular speaker?
The Soundbar 700 does require a network connection for configuration with the Bose Music app. I'd recommend trying to find a SoundTouch 300 soundbar instead as it has the same driver configuration but can be used out of the box.
