Enter a circle of sound
You're engrossed in a cat-and-mouse thriller. A sudden movement over your shoulder startles the character onscreen who dashes toward you in pursuit, disappearing as the sound of footsteps trail off behind you. You're "in" the movie, and your entire living room becomes the set.
Welcome to Bose® surround sound, brought to you by five redesigned Direct/Reflecting® speakers. The precisely angled transducers inside deliver sound you'd expect from speakers many times their size.
The wireless module adds dramatic low notes to your entertainment—without adding a wired connection from the module to the speakers or console. With a signal range of 9 m, you can place it pretty much anywhere in the room. Even if hidden from view, you’ll notice the extra level of realism it provides, from a throbbing bass guitar to a thunderstorm you can actually feel.
Sound designed for your room
Wood floors, plush rugs, unique room dimensions. Believe it or not, they can all affect sound. That’s where the ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system comes in. It adjusts the speaker’s performance to the acoustics of your room, so you don’t have to change a thing. Once you've placed your speaker, just run the ADAPTiQ® system and enjoy consistent performance throughout the room from then on.
One remote. Universal control.
The universal remote is likely the only remote you'll need for all your sources—TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, cable box and more. It's easy to program, easy to use and reduces remote clutter.
Streaming music with SoundTouch™
Another great feature you can enjoy with the Soundtouch® 520 system is the ability to stream music over your Wi-Fi® network. With the Wi-Fi® adapter, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before. Wirelessly stream 20,000+ Internet radio stations from around the world, songs and playlists from a personal music library, and popular music services like Pandora, Deezer™ and Spotify®. It’s all available via your home Wi-Fi® network. The system also works with other SoundTouch™ systems to create a multi-room listening experience. In party mode, these systems work together as one to play music everywhere. Stream different music in different rooms, play the same music in every room or create customised zones.
Also included is an integrated aptX Bluetooth module to allow the playback of music sources such as YouTube from any Bluetooth enabled device.
