amplifier working but no sound

Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

i send amplifier to service center but now its useless no clue but i think Bose has let down its quality i thought Bose was the best but my opinion about Bose have changed now


Fell short of my expectations

Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

The SoundTouch SA-5 has great sound. But is very lacking in sound control. Desperately needs separate speaker control and needs control of range of sound. Need to be able to control A and B volumes separately and more bass control would be a great improvement. The only tone control on the app is the ability to reduce the bass. No way to turn it up. Bass is way too low at reduced volumes. To really get a good bass effect. The volume has to be too loud for comfortable listening.


Wonderful concept

Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

After using this amplifier for slightly over a month, here are my pros and cons: (Used together with BOSE 251 environmental speaker set) PROS: - small footprint - stays cool even when driven hard - great idea, ideal for a secondary amplifier for additional room or porch, not as the main amplifier. CONS: - lack of more varied input connections, i.e. optical and digital coaxial - limited sound customization options - lack of physical remote - unintuitive application layout - non standard speaker wire connectors


great sounding and easy to set up

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

    I wired it to B&W CM9, sound is fine but not the best for these speakers. After 2 months the tweeters burnt and B&W dealer stated that its the amplifier issue and i had to buy new pair of tweeters

    One of the best media add-ons for our home.

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

    I bought the Bose SoundTouch 10 for my wife's office. I loved the sound so much I bought the Bose SoundTouch 20 for our kitchen. Now I wanted to integrate my whole house speaker system with SoundTouch system. I bought the SA-5 amplifiers to hook up our Family Room, Living Room and Master Bedroom ceiling speakers. Now we can have our old wired ceiling speakers working with the other Bose SoundTouch speakers. I had a old OSD Amp before which produced great sound but the SA-5s some how made our old speakers sound just a little bit better. My wife love how easy it is now to play her music throughout the house using Bose SoundTouch app on her iPhone, iPad or Mac. I only have one problem with the system, I would love to use the Aux input on the SA-5 and be able to send it to my other Bose SoundTouch 10 or 20 speaker. I was told when I bought the SA-5 by the salesman that Bose is working on a software patch to fix the Aux in issue. Bose please do, then this would be a perfect amp

    Software could make this soon much better

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

    I currently have 10 Sa-3 amps on an old lifestyle 38. They work great. I stream through my computer and cell phone and have had a very nice experience. I bought an SA_5 with the thought of converting my system to all SA-5s. The amp is nice and concept good. Easy to set up. The software could be better: 1. There should be better bass, treble, balance control. 2. There should be independent control of speakers A/B 3. There should be rebroadcast capabilities 4. There should be surround sound capacity for fixed in wall speakers. I have a total of 16 ceiling speakers in 5 rooms and 4 outdoor speakers. I would love it if they could give me more flexibility. Niles systems have a nice product but I don't feel their iPhone app is as easy to use as Bose. Make these changes and I will buy 5 more SA-5s and put speakers in my other 6 rooms.

    I like it but can I get an upgrate?

    By Doc

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

    The unit works as advertised but like others I was disappointed to find that the A and B speakers cannot operate independently and I had to buy an additional switch to accomplish this. Seems just lazy and is a bit misleading. Also a solid user manual for the controller app should be included with the unit. After downloading the app. I re-initiallized the speakers several times. It took me a bit of time to figure out that this only appears to be the case when you try to "play everywhere" before you have picked a source for one unit and then used that unit as a the basis for "play everywhere". I see at least one reviewer has been put of the product by this. A good set of instructions would help.


    Nice idea but with big issues.

    Comments about Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier:

    We've had an SA5 for 4 months now. The first set up was a breeze. It only took 3 or 4 minutes. Unfortunately every single time we want to use it again the thing needs to be set up again... from scratch. There is no way for this device to hold the set up information past a nights sleep. We no longer use it 80% of the time in order to avoid doing the 3 minute set up procedure. I tried connecting it through ethernet to avoid this issue, but the manual will not go through this procedure and it's been impossible to detect the network when wired. Why can't a device released in 2015 hold log in and password for a WiFi for more than a couple of hours is beyond me but it extremely limits the appeal of this device. On a separate note, it's ridiculous that it would not come with an option to run A and B zones independently. To avoid blasting my neighbors with music in the patio I continuously have to unplug the wires for a zone. .. ridiculous.... too many issues for a high end amplifier. Not worth the buy until they sort all these kinks out.
