Hi belemjc,

 

If you have a SoundTouch adapter connected and setup with your 525, you can add the SA-5 (with FreeSpace 51s)  to your account and play SoundTouch sources to both. Once you get the SA-5, you'll want to use our app to connect it to your network (via Wi-Fi or Ethernet) and it will add the amp to your account where you can access both the Lifestyle and the SA-5. Currently, only SoundTouch sources can be played on these however we are attempting to bring AUX rebroadcast to the systems that will support them as mentioned in the post HERE. The adapter for the 525 is not on compatible list but the SA-5 is. What that means is that if you can get an AUX source connected to the SA-5, you will be able to stream it to other SoundTouch systems, like the Lifestyle. Sources connected to the Lifestyle console, however, won't work the same way. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. 

 

 

Thank you

Hi belemjc,

 

You are correct. If you want to get your music on your iPod to play through all of your systems you would need to sync it with your iTunes library on your computer, or connect it to the SA-5 (via Bluetooth or AUX in). If it is connected to the dock, it won't be able to be rebroadcasted to other systems. If you want to send TV sound to all of your systems you would need to either connect an audio out feed to one of the AUX inputs on the SA-5 or you could integrate a SoundTouch Wireless Link which would do the same thing, once AUX rebroadcast gets enabled. 

 

Thank you
