I am really thrilled that Soundtouch update for aux input distribution has finally arrived. Albeit still a Beta at present. I would just like to feed back some issues about it to give them the best chance of being fixed. Apologies if they are already in progress:(I am not sure if there is any reliable way to feed this back to Bose but I will try this forum first).1 - It does indeed drop out quite regularly when more than two speakers are used, as they warn in the beta release notes, but pretty reliable on two speakers.2 - The delay gets worse as you add more speakers which is not surprising but it does mean that for TV picture sync it is really only possible to have the sound on the SA5 alone. However we can now relay the TV sound to another room which is nice if we want to briefly go to the kitchen for example and still hear the TV sound, albeit delayed. Of course the delay is not a problem for playing CD's (slightly puzzling the first few times you change tracks and nothing happens until after the delay).3 - I have found the app does not behave very well with the new feature. The volume settings keep defaulting to zero each time you reopen the app or when adding/removing speakers, and it gives the impression that it is not working until you realise the volume has changed. There is also a suspicion that the volume settings do not change on all the speakers in quite the right way. When you change volume they seem to end up not balanced as expected. This all happens regardless of whether the Aux input is being used.4 - When the app is running on an android mobile for a while it will often show "no wifi available" when you go back to it even though the Wifi is all there and working. The app has to be force closed and opened again.Any comments welcome - especially "yes, these are all being fixed!"
