Summary: This is a great system. The price at costco with receiver gives the most value. The sound is crisp and clear. If you are thinking about whether to get it or not, just buy it and you will not be disappointed. In fact, it does sound like a few expensive systems in the market. I am very happy with my system.
What anyone should expect & experience from any Bose system. See my descrip for what you need/don't need....

Summary: I recently purchased a used Acoustimass 10SeriesIII. [Note: The 10SeriesIV offers a system remote & bluetooth. The 10SeriesIII has neither but the sound is equally clear & effective.] When connected to a multi-channel amplifier or receiver, the system can shake an entire house when the bass is near MAX - be mindful of your neighbors. The only necessary components of the Acoustimass 10SeriesIII are the: (1) bass module, (2) system input cable, and (3) power cable.
