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.

Horrible, frustrating
Hello, I bought the SA-5 after long research and justifying the large price. It does not hold the connection and is constantly searching for the speakers via the app. I changed out my router thinking it was a wifi problem and it still does not work. I have fiber up and own with 100 meg and it just does not work. I love Bose and thought this would work, but now I am frantically looking for another solution.

Great amp

Bought the amp a year ago and have loved it. I installed 2 Klipsch outdoor speakers and it is incredible. If there is an issue it would be range of the Bluetooth but that's on me and the location I chose. The amp is inside and I am listening outside. When I'm over 30 feet away my apple products struggle to connect consistently. However my Samsung connects fine. With that being said it has to go through 3 walls to get to me and it works great. Again I can't stress enough how nice it is to have high quality sound outside. Oh yea my outdoor tv Bluetooths to the amp also.

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.

Flawless integration

I absolutely love the SA-5. Installation was a breeze. I have it connected to a 12 pair speaker selector as I have speakers in every room in the first floor of my home. I had originally thought the speakers were bad, however it turned out it was the old amp that came with the house. I also have a 700 Sound bar and linking them together is as easy as a touch of a button on the app. The subwoofer in the 700 providers the bass lacking from the in-ceiling speakers. Amazon Alexa integration works flawlessly as well as Bluetooth and the streaming services. I Couldn't be happier with this purchase. I am planning on adding another SA-5 with outdoor speakers in and around my pool house just because linking the systems together works so well. Great job Bose! Your engineers deserve a handshake!

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

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!!!

Nice idea but with big issues.

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.

Terrible app

Very poorly performing app. The control app for this product consistently can not find or loses this unit. I've gone as far as running cat6 directly from my network router to the SA5 and still very poor performance.
