So here's what has been working for me. I do NOT turn off my speakers. Ever. I have 4 SoundTouch 10s setup near to my router. One is my "master" for connection to Bluetooth via my iPhone 7 (where I also do not turn off the app -- ever). When I want music, I open the app, I set the master speaker to Bluetooth and connect, and then hit Play All. That's it -- it works across all four speakers. UNLESS someone in my house ever turns a speaker off by hitting Power or using the remote... then that speaker is off the grid entirely and I have to reconnect it manually to the WiFi next time I want to use it. I will either just leave the house (severing Bluetooth connection) or hit "AUX" on the master speaker anytime I want to stop playing music. It's been almost 2 weeks now and this has been working consistently for me.

I just moved from my home with multi-room (12) wired speakers through the entire first floor into a smaller space, and had been kicking around looking for the best wireless solution. I'm working with two Soundtouch 10s right now and was planning to expand from here -- but wow, it is a problem. I've assigned static IPs, compartmentalized the network band, done all kinds of things -- but I am also getting the issues of - speaker randomly dropping out and undetectable by the app - Play All or adding speaker not functioning Like everyone else, I can still see the speakers are connected to WiFi, and independently the two speakers can still play separate instances of preset stations (internet radio, Amazon playlists, etc) -- but the app doesn't recognize them, and they don't play sound together when the app does say they're linked. Long story short: I bought them at Costco. Is it worth this? Should I return them and find another company?
