Summary: Everything was just like described. Works great and great product :). Bose is the best around it has the best sound quailty that I have heard and it's the only speakers I will buy. I would tell everyone I know to spend the extra money and buy the best product. I have a LG surround sound system in my basement and it donsn't compare so Now BOSE is the only thing I would buy. The only thing I wish it had was a volume control I could see so I know how loud it was.
Excerpt: I am using with my 55" Samsung 8 Series (UN55D8000). The sound quality is amazing with optical audio connection. Setup was little time consuming but it was worth doing it. I am giving it 4-stars for the packaging and remote. It is just too many extra boxes which could have been avoided. I think there is some work to be done on calibration too. Once setup is complete, you can hear the every note.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Interfaces Well With TV
Summary: This Bose system is very easy to set up. The audio calibration works great and is also very user friendly. You definitely want to read the user manual to figtoure out the remote. I installed this unit in an open floor plan basement, about 1000 square feet. It is definitely loud enough to fill the room with sound which I was worried about with such a large room.
Pros: Easy set up, plenty of volume, and good bass response.
Cons: The only slight cons I have found so far is the sound separation could be better, and the sub could use just a little more umphh...But, I realize this is a sound bar setup, not like the big tower and built ins I had before. Overall I would definitely purchase again
