Need advice on blutooth/wireless adaptors for old Bose

Two Questions

I have an old Bose PS3-2-1-11 powered speaker system which i love. I am considering buying the SoundTouch wireless link adapter to stream music from my iPhone. I read a comment that this isn't compatible with Apple Music. Is this correct?

I also have a Bose SoundDock Portable digital music system pre bluetooth. Is there a bluetooth adapter i can get for that?

I am in Australia

Many thanks for your help, Kerry

The wireless link adaptor will not play apple music over wifi, you would have to use BT for that.  Alternetively you may find plugging in an apple TV may be the better way and use airplay.

 

There was a BT adaptor for the SoundDocks, but I'd be surprised if you could find one anymore.  Even third party ones likely won't use the 30 pin connector anymore.  You may find a no name one from E-bay or you can use a BT receiver that plugs into the 3.5mm slot on the back of the speaker

I found a SoundDock repair specialist in Britain. They have communicative expertise to offer, repair services, and certain part and circuit boards to sell. Invebo is the name. As far as 30 pin Bluetooth adapters. There is no shortage of those being offered on Amazon. Shoot for the newer adapters utilizing the V. 5.0 or later standard.

Re: Need advice on blutooth/wireless adaptors for old Bose

I have an old Bose Soundock purchased back in 2012.  I currently use it with a similarly old iPod containing my downloaded music.  However, I also have a Pandora Premium account which I would like to play through the Sounddock via my iPhone12.  Is this possible via the Amazon V.5.0 adaptor mentioned?  If so, does the adaptor create/allow a Bluetooth connection or does the iPhone 12 sit on the adaptor like the iPod?  Thank you for your help.
