re: broadcasting AUX announcement
Product Line Manager, SoundTouch Software Group
posted the following text here: New SoundTouch Product Update confirming that Bose will introduce the ability to rebroadcast AUX sources to other ST devices, i.e. from ST300 to ST20 in late Summer 2017.
Can I ask someone to confirm if this update will specifically include the ability to share input from either HDMI ARC or optical into the ST300 with an ST20 and/or any other of the ST devices listed in the post please?
I am keen to have this confirmed ASAP as I was advised prior to purchasing the ST300 that this capability was already available and I was disappointed to find out that it is not. I am currently considering my options with regards to returning the ST300, so I would really appreciate it if someone from Bose could answer the above question.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Some of you have asked about the ability to rebroadcast AUX sources.
There have been a lot of questions regarding the ability to broadcast an AUX source throughout your SoundTouch speakers. So here’s the latest on that:
In terms of timing, we’re currently targeting late summer (timing, as always, may change). Compatible products include:
- SoundTouch 10
- SoundTouch 20 (all series)
- SoundTouch 30 (all series)
- SoundTouch Portable (all series)
- SoundTouch SA-5
- SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter
- SoundTouch 300
- SoundTouch Lifestyle 600/650
Products not included in this list, are unfortunately unable to be supported due to limitations in the hardware itself.
