How does SoundTouch® work?

SoundTouch® systems connect to the Internet via your home network, either wirelessly (Wi-Fi®) or by wire (Ethernet). Once you are connected, you can choose from select Internet radio and music services, and play music files stored on your computer. Six convenient presets found on each system (or its remote) can be easily personalized through the SoundTouch® app on a smartphone, tablet or computer. Once these are set, you won't need to turn on any smart device or launch an app to begin listening to music. Simply press one of the preset buttons and enjoy your favorite streaming music wirelessly.

Why do I need to download the SoundTouch® app?

That's how you connect your SoundTouch® system to your home Wi-Fi® network. Then you can use the app to access Internet radio, select music services and your music library, and create presets for your SoundTouch® system.
