Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7
I actually suggest for those expecting an update - do not try to rush it.
It's best to wait a little and check the forums to find out what sort of problems are being reported before applying updates.
On the few cases I have manually applied updates (not referring to Bose here) - the result was devices become bricked about 1 in 3 times.
Considering the 2nd Soundtouch 300 cost 650 EUR - best not to experiment especially if as we found out it's not easy to find a replacement anymore.
The comments on updates are especially true for Apple and Microsoft updates.
I speak was someone to needed half a day during a weekend to restore an old Mac Mini that failed reporting a hardware problem during an update recently issued security update - refused to support internet recovery or restore from Time Capsule and needed to reinstall OS from connected Superdrive.
When all of this was done, was able use this with my Soundtouch 300 again.
Sound quality with Airplay is clearly better than Bluetooth.
