pauses /lag time during internet streaming music

When streaming music from internet services like Spotify, I experience sudden stops or pauses and a signficant lag time until it starts up again. Very jarring and ruins the entire purpose of wireless streaming speakers.


1. Product:  Soundtouch 10.

2. The speaker is located right next to the router.

3. I live in an urban area and I (supposedly) have "high-speed" internet service.

I am looking for troubleshooting information to determine whether the problem is with the router, the speaker itself, internet speed/connectivity issues or something else. I find no information in the Bose website Support area on this topic.

Can anyone help? I'm a basic informed user, not an audiophile or IT type person.  THANK YOU!

Re: pauses /lag time during internet streaming music

Hi @LisaC117


Thank you for posting in the community!  I'm sorry to hear about your Spotify issue, but I'd be glad to help.  Just need a few clarifications here:


  • Are you streaming from the Bose SoundTouch app or using Spotify Connect?
  • Have you rebooted your router/modem/speaker yet? 
  • Has Spotify ever worked in the past without issues?

Warm Regards,
