Sounds great for such a small system

Summary: Sounds great for such a small system. My only complaint is that the volume occasionally gets out of synch with the TV even when I placed the Boston Acoustics remote received right above my TV.
Summary: Sound is competent for a bedroom or small office setting. I really like the Bluetooth connectivity, the learning remote, and that I can use other remotes to control the volume. I am a professional musician, and I won't use these speakers to SERIOUSLY listen to music, but for background music for housecleaning and connected to the bedroom TV, this works well. I got it as a lightning deal, so it was worth the money I paid.
Summary: Great sound. Multi-functional - connects seamlessly via Bluetooth and WiFi. Easy setup. Speaker wires are long enough to allow adequate versatility. The only negative I would offer is that if it is connected through Bluetooth, those devices have to be manually disconnected in order to hear sound from another Bluetooth device. Not a big deal, though.
Boston Acoustics Delivers great value in a small package

Summary: This BA system is simple, but delivers are punch. I use it for music, movies and etc, and it never fails to deliver. The only hiccup I have is the remote... it's not very responsive and I had to use duct tape to keep the IF receiver in place. I previously owned a Bose Cinemate, and the remote on that is much better, but that is the only drawback to this unit. For the price range, this is the best value you'll find around.
Summary: we have this hooked up to our 55" lg tv and it really makes a difference with movies and games. First movie I watched with this speaker was adventure and tintin and I was surprised how beautiful that movie sound. blue tooth option is working fine and connects automatically with my android tablet and phone.
Summary: Firstly these speakers sound good ( I am a live sound engineer). They could be better but for their size and price I think they're a great value. My issues are with the noise the power supply in the sub woofer it seems to emit a constant high pitched sine wave. It's not apparent when the volume is up but if you mute the system or even have it running low it is bothersome.
Summary: Frankly, I think the sound should have been way better for the price - but it is what it is. You get small speakers which is what you're after here anyway. But don't expect miracles from the sound. These are woosy little buggers.
