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
9 June 2014
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: Was looking specifically for a low cost, great sounding speaker solution to replace some ancient KOSS M80-Plus bookshelf speakers hooked up to a budget 2 x 40w Pyle amplifier. First tried Polk OWM5s. Odd, but they were bottoming out on the bass even at low volume. Also, without a subwoofer, these pale in comparison to the BA Soundware XS 2.1 system. The Polks looked impressive and were much larger, but sound was a disappointment as a 2 channel, self-contained system.
Summary: Great stereo sound in a beautifully designed package. Integrates high quality audio seamlessly with the optical digital audio output of my television. Bluetooth audio streaming is a great added bonus.
Summary: I have it hooked up to my gaming rig and fills my small office with rich sound. Turn the bass setting down as the max setting is way to much and drowns out the treble/highs. It easily binds to my Bluetooth mp3s and phone. controls are good and the ir remote works ok. An RF would be better IMO. I bought it in the used section and it came without a scratch. Packaged well and was the condition noted in the comments. Amazon is always a good choice!
Summary: An excellent product that can't be beat for the price. I was looking to get better sound than what came out of the flat screen but didn't want to get a full 5.1 surround system. I looked at sound bars but with the stand on our Samsung TV, the sound bar would sit 6 inches in front of the screen. I also looked at sound bases but was not impressed by the amount of base.
Summary: I was considering a Bose Cinemate system but did not want to spend that much money. I found this system and ordered one that was refurbished for less than 1/4 of the price of the Bose system. For the money you probably cant do any better.
