Summary: This speaker system is of very high quality. The sound is crisp and clear although I haven't tried the optical input which should be even better. The speakers feel very solid and of high quality build. The Bluetooth devices pair easily, the remote is very handy also, however it is the only part of this system that feels cheap. I understand that it can be easily substituted with a universal remote or even your own TV remote (there is a programing feature).
Summary: l can't believe the full sound and power that comes from this audio system. I purchased this system about 10 months ago, not realizing after I received it, my tv did not have any audio out connections. I just purchased a new tv with the digital audio out and finally got to try this system out. what a big surprise. I'm blown away!!! much better sound than I had expected.
Summary: I decided to get these for my bedroom. I hooked them up to my TV and loved them... But then I thought... How would these sound in front of my computer with both satellite speakers about a 16 inches from my head? I am using two 22 inch monitors and they fit perfectly under them. Of course the monitors are off set. One right in front and one to my right side. I am also running this setup through a Schiit Audio DAC since I am at my computer now.
Summary: I received two of these. The "Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 2.1 Digital Cinema with Bluetooth and Dolby Digital Decoding Optimized Virtual Surround" is UNTRUTHFUL!!!! It is Boston Acoustics Soundware XS Digital Cinema with Bluetooth and Dolby Digital Decoding Optimized Virtual Surround and NOT the Soundware XS 2.1 in the description. This is deceitful!!!!!!
BEWARE !!!! I recieved an old model with fewer features.

Summary: Be Careful !! You might not be getting the Soundware XS 2.1. But an older "Soundware XS." The older model lacks 1) speaker level inputs, 2) a line level input, and 3) crossover controls that are present in the 2.1 version subwoofer. This prevents interface of this speaker system with stereo systems lacking optical ports. I ordered from HIDEF Lifestyles during a Lightning Deal.
Summary: Sound quality is pretty good...certainly better than what I get from my flat screen TV. My frustration is that the description specifically says it has a WIRELESS subwoofer and it does not. I was expecting to be able to put the subwoofer behind the couch across the room from the TV but I cannot because it is directly wired to the TV on a very short cable. Very disappointed that the description is misleading about having a wireless subwoofer.
Summary: I first heard the sound of these speakers at a friend's place and really became fan of it. So, I was quite clear in my mind that I have to get Boston Acoustics speakers only. On top of it, there are much more affordable then any other brand. Quality wise, they are more than awesome. The moment you take the smaller speakers in hand, you can feel the build quality which is really really good. Same goes for the main woofer which is heavy.
Summary: I will try to be very brief in my review, especially for all of those who are "struggling" on making a final decision on which sound system to buy, cause I was on that position and sometimes searching for the perfect comment or feedback, can make you feel a little exhausted. *I tried it literally with each type of musical genre. (ROCK, LATIN, COUNTRY, HIP HOP, BLUES, CLASSICAL, EDM etc, you name it) BTW, I'm a music junkie. This system is perfect to fill a small area.
