Summary: BOSE® Acoustimass® 10 Series Home entertainment system is not for anyone that needs help with the setup or repair. Bose techs do help and are very considerate. However it will be time consuming to the owner, even ridiculous if the system never functions properly.
Pros: looks Great Bose always backs their Product
Cons: My experience with Bose is ongoing 5 years to be exact and it never worked right. Even after a service that to my amazement was very fast. A turnaround of 5 days. When I got the Acoustimass Base Module back It was damaged, I chose to accept it as long as it worked and it did for 20 minutes. Then ...
Summary: These puppies didn't last a day in my intended second system. BOSE used to be well known for their quality speakers way back in the days of the original modest 301s and 501s - but not any more. They are selling this 'Acousti-mess' business model product on pure reputation and "sound-stage hype".
Summary: I recently spent some time auditioning this product (outside of a retail store in multiple placement configurations, which is a much different experience) and honestly none of that time was necessary for me to know that no amount of engineering or marketing is sufficient to ignore the laws of...
Summary: Unfortunately, these speakers did not live up to my expectations. I think they are halfway decent speakers, but for the price I expect them to be something to be proud of. I have to say overall the sound quality is just about poor. The highs are not there, and neither are the lows.
Summary: Get something else. There are many small speaker sets half the price that will outperform this garbage. Better sound through research? Yeah, more like better sales through advertising. A quick search on any audio enthusiast site will return all of the real details on Bose.
Pros: The cardboard they make the drivers out of is recyclable.
Cons: You'd think for $1000, you'd at least get a sound system that was full range. Bose won't release their system specs because these speakers have one of the worst frequency responses of any speaker on the market. Shoddy construction coupled with poorly designed cabinets = bad sound.
Summary: I am actually surprised at the number of negatives, thought that there would be some loyal blinded bose fans writing review. Look, Bose really made a name for itself in the 70's early 80's when they had decent bookshelf speakers, they have totally fallen behind with the advent of surround sound,...
Summary: We bought this system for our home. We bought it as an investment that we would have for years. Bose is supposed to be some of the best speakers on the market. We have Bose 601 speakers and they are awesome. This system sucks and I wouldn't recomend anyone spending $1,000 on this system.
Summary: I am a former BOSE Acustimass 10 owner. When i got into Home theater, I was a newbie and pretty much bought into the marketing power of BOSE. They had the nice little Demonstration stands at Best Buy and at Fry's Electronics, they have the Soundroom that is tweaked to make the Bose sound incredible.
