They certainly show no interest in connecting the two different ecosystems. However, they will still happily sell the dated, and abandonned, soundtouch products. I doubt many people purchasing the soundtouch devices understand that a superior product, without any backward compatability, is also being offered by the company.

Like many of you, I have invested thousands of dollars in Bose products over the years. For the most part, they have worked well and I have been happy. Their software is at times troublesome, but the speakrs sound great. I thought I would save people the trouble of searching for compatability related to the SoundTouch devices, by posting a thread with the subject line clearing up any ambiguity. I have been looking to add a soundbar to my home and wanted it to be compatible with my soundtouch speakers. I do not want to buy a previous model -- i'm aware bose has a sound touch soundbar. I called today and was informed that the SoundTouch systems will not work with any new system, and more specifically, will not work with the Bose Home Speaker / Bose Soundbar. This was tough to hear after all the money I've plowed into the soundtouch speakers. The Bose Representative told me that there will be no compatability with future products for the soundtouch ecosystem. I was offered a buy-back of my current system at thirty cents on the dollar. This is an abysmal offer and will force me to consider other companies' products. Beware of purchasing SoundTouch systems if you want to add additional components in the future.
