Not the best out there
14 November 2013
Summary: For the price of $167 i paid at Fry's electronics, this system can work. But if you want to compare this system to other systems that retail for the same price of $400-500, the system does not even come close to its competitors. The sound seems good by itself but upon comparing with systems like Bose Cinemate gs series ii or Onkyo LS3100, this one will sound like a boombox. The bluetooth does not connect well in comparison to other systems that offer bluetooth as well.
Ok BUT horrible interface and ugly GREEN lights on volume module

Summary: It's ok. The system is easy to set up but horrible volume module with glaring and blinding bright green infrared lights/remote. The transition to blue tooth,music,video, is not user friendly. They need to fix those obnoxious green lights.
Summary: I've owned a set of Boston Acoustic computer speakers for over 10 years now and have yet to find a better set. When I ordered my first Gateway computer it came with some small Boston speakers and a woofer. I was an instant believer from then on. As soon as I saw this sound system at best buy on display about 6 months ago I almost bought it. Good thing I didn't because it was $499 at the time. Now I see it on Amazon for $249, no brainer. Put it on order.
Summary: This is a great set of speakers. We have been debating on a sound bar to add to our flat screen, and when my wife dropped our old speaker while dusting, I did an impulse buy for this system. The sound is amazing for the diminutive size. The only issue I had was in programming the system to recognize my remote. You have to program each task.
Summary: First, let my start by saying that the delivery was excellent. Now, let's talk about the system. Great product for the price. I've seen similar products go for more $ then this and it didn't sound this good. I was a bit difficult to program all the fonctions but once it's done, they all work perfectly. I will be watching more movies and concerts now that i have this excellent product installed and fonctionnel. Thanks.
Summary: Small in design but big in sound, this great sound system has met my expectations. I don't really write too many reviews but this one really deserve it. I like the bluetooth feature though it's easy to set up and you can play all your favorite music from your device including pandora and iheart radio, I own another speaker system which is really great too the Logitech Z-2300 THX-Certified they both very comparable and perfect sound, the only difference is that the Boston...
Summary: I have have used them for around 7 months now and pretty much happy with it. These speakers are incredible with great input options like bluetooth, aux -in, digital optical input. Initialy i received a defective model but amazon as usual replaced it. Only issue is sometimes it takes time to increase or decrease volume via digital optical input not sure if others have faced that. But overall happy with the purchase.
Summary: I have had Boston Acoustics speakers for more than 15 years. They are easily among the very best, and this compact system is no exception. Pros: * Small speakers, easily mounted almost anywhere. Oddly, they're not designed to sit on a shelf (see cons, below). * Excellent sound quality from 2 tiny speaker modules. Does have a floor-standing woofer cube. * Hooks up via RCA red-white (right-left) cables or optical input to almost any HDTV or cable box.
Summary: We just moved from the home where we installed two stereo speakers in the ceiling with no subwoofer. The sound their was awesome for dance parties with the kids and blasting the occasional Avengers or Incredibles movie. Our new home has nothing installed, so we were starting from scratch with only the tiny TV speakers for music. These little speakers and sub combination fill the void in our 18 x 25 living room with ease! I'm no audiophile, but these sound great.
Summary: I order this product from amazon and it arrived quickly to my house. I hooked this unit into my samsung un55f7100 tv using the TOSLink cable (provided). The sound began working immediately. When I went to go use the remote to configure everything I found that it wasn't working. I tried a new battery (a watch battery CR2025), that wasn't the issue. I double checked connections, etc...nothing.
