    Bose SA-5 reviews

    SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the backyard If you are looking for a sound system for your back yard that can be controlled through your smart phone via WiFi. This is the one you’ve been looking for. The Bose Sound Touch SA5 with Bose 251 (2) & Bose 51 Landscape (2) speakers has more volume than you will ever need and has a crisp clear sound that will impress. I have the SA5 Amplifier in my house with speaker wires routed to the back yard. With my WiFi signal I can easily control the system with my iPhone from anywhere in my backyard. And no ther is no binging, or interruptions with phone calls, emails or text messages. 100% Satisfied with the Bose SA5!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug and play setup, easy stream to deck speakers Arrived yesterday and was streaming music to deck speakers soon after. Connecting speaker wires was easy thanks to detaching connector plug. I have large gauge wires and no problem with connection. Plugged in SA5 and after a SW update, was streaming music to deck speakers. Sound touch app makes it easy to stream content and set volume level, super convenient when you're outside in the yard. App seamlessly connected to my other sound touch speaker. Should have purchased this setup long ago, old setup with Denon receiver app stopped working after Android phone update which made deck speakers less useful, app was also chunky. Sound touch app is a big improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I have been wanting to update my whole house speaker system I have 10 SA-3 amps running off an old Lifestyle system. I recently added my first SA-5. It was up and going in minutes. The longest part was stripping the new wires which took 5 minutes. The software with the wireless features is ideal. It has to be dirt simply to keep my wife happy and sophisticated to keep me happy. It accomplishes both. I am able to put Pandora through our house with multiple zone control. I am able to use my library on my Mac, my McIntosh digital server through the addressable inputs. I am a happy camper. Easy, easy, efficient, powers four speakers without a problem and my wife is happy, whew

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great option to enable streaming to wired speakers One “enhancement” I would expect in the future from the Bose engineers is the ability to run the A speakers and B speakers individually from the amp…like a receiver would. In most cases it probably doesn’t matter that the two sets of speakers have sound at the same time, but in my case I have a set of speakers in my family room and a set of speakers outside on the deck. My family room speakers are the “A” speakers and the outside speakers are the “B” speakers and both sets would be always on. As to not blow the neighbors away, I came up with a low tech solution that works just fine. I bought an old school A/B switch and this enables me to run A (inside), B (outside) or both together. Ideally this would be achievable through the SA-5 amp or the Bose SoundTouch amp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it but can I get an upgrate? 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best media add-ons for our home. 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

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I've been a huge fan of Bose products for over 25 years. This is the first time I've ever been disappointed in a Bose device. The SA5 amp seems to need repeated setups for no apparent reason. I've grown accustomed to repeating the setup procedure whenever I know that we're going to be needing the system. But recently (2/18) an update was pushed out and I am no longer able to even complete the setup procedure. The screen where I enter my wifi name and password simply *flashes* past before I can add any input. I've done this *dozens* of times with no change... starting to feel a bit insane at this point because I'm hoping for a different outcome. As it currently stands I have an expensive, non-functioning sound system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SA5 - tremendous I bought an SA 5 to upgrade from my SA3. Easy hook up to my existing outdoor set up of Free Space 51s. App is great, sound is awesome recommend highly.
