The Bose SoundTouch system has good overall sound. It's speakers are easy to use but the apps to control it are very difficult to use. It has Bluetooth and works with Google Play Music but doesn't have AirPlay.
Overall score is based on:
Sound (45%): Scored by our panel of expert listeners judging a variety of music, spoken word, and other sounds on each device and scoring them out of 10. These scores are collated to get our overall sound score.
Ease of use (45%): Considers the clarity and accuracy of the manuals supplied and the ease of setting up the speaker, as well as connecting it to a device and sending music to the speaker.
Signal (10%): Tested by looking at several factors, including having the audio source in different positions, using various audio sources, interference, obstruction and degradation.

The sound quality for the size of the unit is very good, crisp and clear with good base quality. It provides the flexibility to bluetooth to the device or use the Bose App, which isn't difficult to use like stated under the test. I found it very easy to sync up Spotify and Pandoro accounts and regularly bluetooth to the device as well.
I've noted if you're using the bose app to set volume, then use your phone volume buttons, the sound it suddenly increased significantly, you have to think about whether you're using bluetooth or the app, otherwise things get very loud.
Yes, I recommend this product.
