Reduced irritating highs from TV speakers while maintaining hearability. Volume level needed is lower as well

  • Summary: Sure wish I could find a 4 button remote as a second remote for the system.  We sit in different chairs and want a remote for each chair.
  • Pros: Freq range and response as well as volume range is what we want.
  • Cons: 4 button remote ia all that seems to control it. Bose universal remote has no codes for the SOLO 10

Wont synch with TV and Directv

  • Summary: The problem with this system, and perhaps with all such systems as it was my one attempt at non-TV sound, is that there is about a 1/4-1/2 second delay or difference in sound from TV and from Solo.  Thus, the lips of persons on screen are a bit delayed from the dialogue.  Not particularly noticible, but noticible and once you know the defect is there, you will always notice it.
  • Pros: sound
  • Cons: synch

Excellent unit for the price

  • Summary: Others have detailed the fact that you will get what you pay for with this unit. I'd say it is a bargain for the sound and size. Most impressive. I have owned, or now own, about 6 Bkse products, and this one produces the least volume of all but for the Sound Bar. At normal volumes it impresses. Do not expect loud from this unit, and do not think you can fill a big space, and you'll be very pleased.
  • Pros: Excellent sound for the price, Easy set up, Typical awesome Bose reproduction characteristics. Worthy of the brand.
  • Cons: Powers itself down and does not turn on automatically. This would not matter if it powered down after a few hours, but, as it is, I think it powers down in minutes.

Good Crispy Sound, but not to Bose reliability standards.

  • Summary: I received this unit for Christmas, set it up, and first thing I did was turn off the bass boost. I also ordered and installed acoustical foam in the cabinet around this device to reduce the resonances from the strong bass. At that point the sound quality was much better than the standard TV speakers. About two weeks later, it developed a hum in the background, which turned into a annoying buzzing.

Sound is clear not just louder. Satisfied

  • Summary: Pricey for something only offering one feature and limited compatibility. However for the one feature it does it well! Great sound quality! Helps to smooth volume when increased. Delivers CRISP MORE CLEAR SOUND often lost when volume is increased with standard tv speakers Cost high for limited unit in my opinion However was perfect for older parents uninterested in whistles and bells Great gift if splitting cost or able to splurge! Simple but does the job well.

Such a Disappointment

Deb, Target
3 January 2014
  • Summary: Since I have heard Bose is the best for sound, I purchased this to put on my 40" in place of the cheaper Samsung that is there now. I set it up, and was displeased with the sound it gave. My Samsung is way better. This was very tinny, barely any bass at all. I boxed it back up and it's going back. The only good thing about it was the easy setup. Major disappointment.
