Summary: Shipping took a while. Seller emailed to inform it was due to recent weather situation in his area...but this was after I sent an inquiry about it. I had a few setbacks with setting this up but a friend with similar system had parts and was able to help me out. This not in perfect condition but definitely great for price. My main complaint is that the whole system reeks of cigarette and I am not a smoker.
Summary: My wife got this product for me in 2005 after I got back from a deployment. I have to say that I love it, only problem I had was with grounding but with a little research I was able to figure it out. I use it as the sound system for my media hub and still delivers strong sound after all this time. The low volume is great as you can still hear the crisp sound of breaking glass or explosions in movies. Overall is a great sound system for a medium size room.
Summary: I purchased the GS 3-2-1 for my bedroom and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Would be much better if it came as a blu-ray player but the sound is incredible and hook up is very easy. I had a problem with the cd/dvd player and contacted Bose corp. and they quickly sent me another player in just a matter of 4 days. The customer service team at Bose are also very friendly and helpful.
Summary: Sorry I'm not here to trash talk this product. I have owned it for 6 years and it has been a workhorse for me. I got tired of all the Home theater hype and went with this simple system and I love it. Qwirks Yes, but I tweeked the sound to fit my environment and never looked back. Some say it doesn't sound the same as in the store, so go into the settings and turn up the bass and treble easy fix.
Summary: For some reason, folks speak about the 321 with great disdain. The fact is that this system is great, just not for everyone. The best piece of advice I can give before buying this system is going to your local Bose store and getting some advice on placement. I actually talked to one of their install techs and he told me that the 321 is really only designed to provide good surround performance for a small room, such as a den or office.
Summary: Overall I've been happy with the sound from this unit in my relatively small living room. However, I have experienced several of the software quirks mentioned by other readers. When playing DVDs, the unit will periodically lock up, requiring a hard reset to function again. The system also occasionally gets into a state where the sound has a deteriorated "tinny" quality -- this also goes away with a power cycle of the unit.
Summary: I just got mine yesterday and played with it all day. The sound quality is there as I thought it would be! I like the looks and design of the system, the remote is easy to use and once I programmed all my other components for the first time I actually can put away other remotes since this one actually does work all the functions on my TV and SAT box that I regularly use.
