 SoundTouch® 520 home theater system

True surround sound for movies, TV and wireless music

Binge-watching a new series. Catching up on your movie watch list. Streaming the latest music. Your home is your entertainment center. And so much of it relies on sound. The SoundTouch® 520 home theater system delivers true surround sound from five small speakers and a wireless bass module. It’s also a powerful music system, letting you easily enjoy wireless music when connected to your existing home Wi-Fi® network or Bluetooth® devices.
  • True 5.1 surround sound from five slim-profile speakers
  • Small control console with 4 HDMI™ inputs ensures the highest-quality sound from your components
  • Wirelessly play music services like Spotify®, Internet radio stations and your stored music library
  • Customizes sound to fit your room for a consistent, high-quality performance

Exploring music with SoundTouch®

With SoundTouch®, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before. Wirelessly stream millions of songs through Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio™ and Deezer, as well as Internet radio stations and your own music library. A powerful app lets you control your music from anywhere in the house with your phone or tablet. And six easily programmable presets let you play your favorite music from the app or the included universal RF remote.

The SoundTouch® 520 system is also part of an entire family of wireless products. They all work together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms.

Enter a circle of sound

You're engrossed in a cat-and-mouse thriller. A sudden movement over your shoulder startles the character onscreen who dashes toward you in pursuit, disappearing as the sound of footsteps trail off behind you. You're "in" the movie, and your entire living room becomes the set.

Welcome to Bose® surround sound, brought to you by five redesigned Direct/Reflecting® speakers. The precisely angled transducers inside deliver sound you'd expect from speakers many times their size.

Penetrating bass

The wireless module adds dramatic low notes to your entertainment—without adding a wired connection from the module to the speakers or console. With a signal range of 30’, you can place it pretty much anywhere in the room. Even if hidden from view, you’ll notice the extra level of realism it provides, from a throbbing bass guitar to a thunderstorm you can actually feel.

Sound designed for your room

Wood floors, plush rugs, unique room dimensions. Believe it or not, they can all affect sound. That’s where the ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system comes in. It adjusts the speaker’s performance to the acoustics of your room, so you don’t have to change a thing. Once you've placed your speaker, just run the ADAPTiQ system and enjoy consistent performance throughout the room from then on.

The SoundTouch® 520 and Lifestyle® 525 Series III systems both use our Direct/Reflecting® Series II satellite speakers. The SoundTouch® 520 system is compatible with 4K video, while the Lifestyle® system is not. Otherwise, the Lifestyle® 525 system offers advantages in performance (more spaciousness, better bass), an onscreen user interface, radio frequency universal remote control, an AM/FM tuner and analog video inputs in addition to HDMI® inputs.
The control console houses system electronics and provides connections to other devices: TV, cable box and Blu-ray Disc™ player. It also includes a display for status information such as active source and volume level, and a system menu for making audio adjustments.
The system uses an infrared (IR) remote control. Line of sight is required between the remote and the control console.
Yes, this system will pass through Ultra High Definition 4K video from a source device to the TV at 24 or 30 frames per second (FPS).
Yes, a wall-mount bracket is available from Bose, sold separately as an accessory.
The wireless range is up to 30 feet. We recommend placing the Acoustimass module somewhere in the front of the room for optimum sound quality.
The front speaker cables are 20 feet (6.1 meters). The rear speaker cables are 50 feet (15.2 meters). If a longer rear speaker cable is needed, an 80-foot cable (part number 629116-0020) is available from Bose.
