"Decent sound for movies but overall subpar construction"
21 May 2013
Pros: If you can find them on sale and just want surround sound for movies to be played at a reasonable volume then you will find this a very capable system. Oh, and you can feel superior when you tell others that you have a BOSE system.
Cons: Construction! Sub is made out of cheap pressboard/thin laminate and cubes have thin paper speakers. Looses sharpness at higher volumes and small 6" woofers in sub can't keep up with bass heavy music.
Summary: Device arrived broken - with apparent attempts to "fix" it prior to transit. Once connected to entire sound system, it did function, but not properly. The sub hums when plugged in and not in use.
Summary: -Poor construction quality. Paper drivers? This system will have tears in the cones after a while. Maybe not in 5 years, but later on, they will.
Pros: -Sounds decent. Not for the money, but we'll get to that in the cons.
Cons: -Terrible sound quality for the money. It sounds nice and warm compared to Sony and other major electronics manufacturers, but once you hear other brands such as Polk, Infinity, Energy, you'll never want a Bose system.
Summary: Einleitung: Nachdem wir endlich in unser Haus gezogen sind, sollte ein gut klingendes Soundsystem her. Die ersten Informationen bekam ich aus dem Internet. Viele Testberichte führten zu vielen Möglichkeiten in der Auswahl. Leider wollte meine Frau aber keine grossen Lautsprecher rumstehen haben. Die Anschaffung war also so gut wie geplant, ich war mir nur noch nicht sicher welches System es sein soll - an Bose hatte ich bis dahin noch nicht gedacht.
