"Can Audiobooks in iTunes be played on Bose Soundtouch 30? I am an avid listener of audio books. Mostly from Audible. I've synched my iTunes Library, and they are not available on the Soundtouch and they are not convertible to MP3 format. Is there a solution? I'm not likely to keep this system if I can't listen to the the audiobook files."

Actually, Audible Audiobooks are limited by DRM (Digital Rights Management), and they can only be played on a specific player. Nevertheless, Bose SoundTouch doesn't support Audible Manager and any other copyright protected audio files. The SoundTouch system supports several audio file formats including MP3, AAC (excluding protected files), M4A (including Apple lossless ), WMA, OGG (Spotify only). So, is it possible to play Audible Audiobooks on the Bose SoundTouch? Of course, the following will introduce an extraordinary way to make it possible.
