Overpriced and underperforming

Khalid Ikram, Amazon
25 February 2008
  • Summary: A typical Bose product -- marketed with lots of hype, expensive, and performs much less well than other systems that cost at least 30-40 percent less. The sound is uneven, and your options for dubbing etc are very limited. Don't waste your money on this one.

It's awful

T. Asgari "Clown Puncher", Amazon
20 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought this system four months ago. I'm not happy with my purchase for the following reasons: 1) sound constantly drops off 2) you have to turn the volume WAY up to get the full "surround effect" 3) systems mysteriously shuts down on its own 4) DVD picture is not good as a stand-alone DVD player 5) Limited options and inputs 6) expensive and over-priced for what you get. My verdict...save your money and buy another system.

  • Summary: Never played DVD's very well. The sound seems to be not fully coordinated with the images. After a year stopped reading any DVD with even minimal imperfections.

gimmick

  • Summary: Simply put, the Bose 3-2-1 series (all of them) DO NOT produce true 5.1/7.1 sounds. I was able to find two demo unit in a nearby electronic retail chain, and the demo film features X-men 2 (the F-16 chasing/tornado sequence). Since I do have a 5.1 setup and also the X2 DVD, I did a comparison of them.

Beware serious limitations

Dave Bittner, Amazon
24 May 2005
  • Summary: This system is clean, easy to install and nice looking, but there are serious limitations to its design. For starters, there's no headphone jack. Bose seems to think that you would never want to listen to your CDs or DVDs on anything other than their speakers, because there's no other way to get any sound out of this unit. There's no analog audio output, either, so forget dubbing CDs or DVD to any other analog source.
