Ready to Party

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

ABose prod­uct prom­ises great looks and su­perb sound qual­ity. The lat­est from the com­pany is the Sound Touch se­ries to stream mu­sic from the In­ter­net. Of the three sys­tems in the se­ries, the Sound Touch 20 looks like a dock. The white tex­tured top has power, aux­il­iary, vol­ume keys and six chan­nel but­tons in black, on the top. There is a small OLED panel in the front to ac­cess no­ti­fi­ca­tions. The power port, aux, Eth­er­net port, mi­cro USB port and a USB port are placed at the back.

Set­ting up the Sound Touch takes some time as it re­quires an app to be in­stalled on the PC. Af­ter in­stal­la­tion, it con­nects with the Sound Touch over Wi-Fi that can be used to con­trol the player and play In­ter­net ra­dio. It can also be con­nected to iTunes or Win­dows Me­dia Player. The app is avail­able for down­load for iOS and An­droid de­vices to play mu­sic from the phone.

While ac­cess­ing In­ter­net ra­dio, the sound wasn’t very clear. The sys­tem comes with a re­mote to op­er­ate it from a dis­tance. This Sound Touch is good enough for a small in-house party. But un­like the por­ta­ble Sound Touch, which car­ries the same price tag, the Sound Touch 20 needs to be plugged in all the time.
