  • Excerpt: Gaze back into the mists of time, and you’ll find that the earliest loudspeakers were boxes with nothing but right angles. This shape lends itself to efficient manufacturing techniques and is still used for most speakers. However, speaker designers have rebelled against the box for some time.

Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 Loudspeaker System Review

4 September 2009
  • Conclusion: In this economy, it's hard to justify new speakers. However, the SoundWare XS 5.1 system packs a roomful of fun into one small $500 package. There are plenty of other systems out there that are slightly cheaper, but Boston Acoustics' quality is worth the extra money. It still might not be ready to combat the big boys, but good construction and performance make it a nice starter system for any budding movie lover or audiophile.
  • Cons: Beefy subwoofer is a big visual contrast to satellites, Subwoofer has no speaker level inputs; LFE/line input only
