Summary: The Bose 3-2-1 system was extremely simple and easy to setup and the quality of the sound is amazing for only this 3-speaker system. It is truly incredible to achieve the home theater effect with only the two speakers in front of you, but Bose has done it.
Summary: Simple, simple, simple. That's the biggest thing. Right out of the box. Easy to set up and it sounds great. If you're the type that wants the equipment to "do it for me," this is for you. If you like to tinker with it you may want a more complex system.
Summary: My wife has wanted a Bose system for years and finally has exactly what she wanted. She is a music buff and likes to play it loud, she is thoroughly enjoying her new Bose.(so am I!)Butchiesguy
Summary: This unit is so simple to set up its ridiculous. No wires running all through the room. And the sound is fantastic given its small footprint. It may not be as good as true surround, but the difference is negligible. For better results, space the speakers about 5-6 feet apart.
Summary: I compared the Bose 321 Series II system with the Sony and Denon 2.1 systems. No comparison in terms of sound quality. Denon and Sony have some very nice features but if your goal is sound quality then you can't beat Bose. The system is very easy to setup and use.
