Summary: After a little preview at the store and how great it sounded i had to take this system home and test it out in my own space. It surpassed my expectations in my living room. The surround sound is amazing and setup is really simple.
Summary: I bought this system almost a year ago, I couldn't believe the sound in the store when I first looked at it, I was looking at putting a system in my living room and was going to have to spend a lot of time running wires thru walls etc.
Summary: Garbage. Bought on Christmas sale in dec 2012. Sound has been cutting in and out for several months... Just outside of warranty. Last night the system broke down entirely with no sound and only a flashing red light. After 10 mins with Bose tech support they tell me I need to mail it to them to fix.
Summary: Switched over to this Sound bar in an attempt to child proof my living room. Coming from a Full 7.1 Surround sound system to this "Array" wasn't as bad as I would expect. The sound from this Array is very accurate, full, and has a wide sound stage. The Quality of system is amazing.
Summary: I had a Bose system prior to purchasing the CineMate and have always been pleased with the sound. The new CineMate system has not let me down. The sound is terrific and installation was not only easy but fun.
Summary: After hearing this system at a FutureShop demo I was really really impressed with the sound and the magic of invisible speakers I thought I was hearing. I do agree with one reviewer about TV speakers always toting great surround sound blah, blah, blah and they never do.
Summary: I was looking for something to replace my 7.1 surround sound I had at my previous residence. I was very skeptical to start looking at Sound Bars in general due to my previous experience with them, however, the Bose Cinemate 1 is definitely a winner.
Summary: I bought this to go with a Samsung 60" series 8000 TV. The sound truly enhances a spectacular picture. The setup is easy if you follow the instructions, in fact it's quite intuitive. The sound is typical Bose. It fills the room and is great spatially.
Summary: If are serious about sound, the Bose SR1 will definitely blow you away. Since I already have a serious media room and needed something half decent for my bedroom TV I did my research and auditioned at least 13 soundbars. Was very disappointed and decided to go with another full surround system.
