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

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.
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!

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

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.
Summary: expected better from Boston Acoustics.. have a 2.1 Denon for years.. thought it was time to upgrade.. very disappointing.. my 6 year old Denon sound quality was much better .. remote came with an almost dead battery as well.
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.
