Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 December 2014
  • Summary: I just got this today, and immediately set it up. Overall, I like it --- I'm no audiophile but the sound is certainly good enough for me. BUT, I'll most likely be returning it ASAP, because with it plugged in and the power switch turned to "on" but with the system turned "off" (TV off, speaker...

beware- unit died just outside of return period, and seller shipped reburbished unit sold as new

Sean, Amazon
1 October 2014
  • Summary: Beware: HIDEF LIFESTYLE shipped this unit, which was listed as NEW, but came with a Factory Refurbished sticker on it. I decided that the value was still good at $159, so kept the unit. The sound quality was great for such a small soundsystem, so I was very happy.

Sound issues and defective remote receiver.

John Smith, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: The Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS is my first foray into a 2.1 sound system. Not having the space for a 5.1, I decided to give it a try based on positive reviews. Unfortunately, my experience was far less than positive.

Defective out of the box and you only get one day for return it!

Book buyer, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: One of the speakers did not have one of the speaker wire holes drilled out so I could not put both speaker wires on. This is a really obvious manufacturing defect. So I could not even try the speakers. Then when i went to do the return it said I had one day to return it! What?

the subwoofer makes hissing noise even without cable connected

Bill F, Amazon
10 April 2014
  • Summary: The hissing sound is very annoying no mattering the unit is on or off unless you unplug it from the outlet. The customer service is not helpful too. I am sending out for repair (I need to pay shipping fee) to see whether it can be fixed.

Sometimes it works sometims it doesn't

Jenn "Jenn", Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I contemplated on getting this because $540 for speakers is a lot of investment but I've tested it at Best Buy and just fell in love that I just had to have it. About couple months after the purchase it wouldn't work on occasion. Even the Bluetooth function from my iPhone doesn't work.
