  1. Hi Joe,

    The satellite speakers are wired. You’ll get necessary cables inside the box, 20 feet cable for front and 50 feet cable for rear speakers. You can also buy 80 feet cables from Bose.

    The sub is wireless and you can place it anywhere within 30 feet from the control console.

    If wiring is not an option for you, check out SoundTouch 130 model in our HT review section.

  2. If I want to listen to music can I switch let say to a stereo mode so that just the front speaker and the subwoofer are active?

  3. @Thomas, This HT system allows you to adjust (lower up to zero) rear speaker volume, if you don’t want to switch off the rear speakers totally.

    In System Menu, Selection number nine (Sound Level Controls) you can find rear speaker volume controls.

  4. Hi Mark
    was wondering whether the system was compatible with attaching the soudtouch 10 or 20 wireless speakers so that I can get additional sound in other rooms


  5. Hi Jason,

    This is a 5.1 channels system, supports five ‘wired’ Series II speakers and one wireless Bass module that are included in the box.

    The SoundTouch 520 system is designed for an immersive surround sound experience, though these speakers can be split in to 3.1 and 2 channels for multiple rooms.

    Thanks, stay connected for news on latest products launches.

  6. Am I correct in assuming the 520 has a video or hdmi out to the TV? Does the Foxtel plug into the 520 or the TV?
