Good system in the right setting.

Marbry Hamilton, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: A really good system for the price. Clear crisp sound that is perfect for a small space. It works well but loses a little quality in larger open areas. If you are using it in a small or even mid-size room, alcove or den, this would be perfect. Not as good in a high ceiling loft type setting.

User Review

  • Summary: Overall, if you're not an audiophile or if you listen to music without much bass, this system will do, but I wouldn't pay MSRP of $500-600 for it. If you just want to connect it to a TV, it'll look nice and do the job.
  • Pros: I bought them cheap, $350. Gemstone speakers look nice, can go pretty loud Easy to set up
  • Cons: Lots of cons: 1. the 'subwoofer' is not good. I listen to bass-heavy music (hip/hop), and the sub just doesn't cut it. It's pretty bad below 40hz - just gives a cheap rumble like you'd hear on a $50 system. Very disappointing. At higher frequencies, it resonates well but just sound hollow and not...

Worth it, but lots of wires.

Anthony B, Amazon

  • Summary: Sounds great but there are some quirks. First, the acoustimass unit is huge. Think bigger thana desktop pc tower circa 2000. Which isn't bad in and of itself, but you need to put this thing somewhere and you have to run thick wires to your tv. You'll want to hide these suckers, they are conspicuous.

Best 2.1 you can buy!

Joey A. Cox, Amazon

  • Summary: I own Bose 301 series, the older Bose 321 series from 5 years ago and now this new GS Series II. Bose for whatever reason, have always had the best sound of any system I've owned. I also have some Cerwin-Vega's, Klipsch, Logitech, Pioneer and Sony systems I've had.

looks great...

  • Pros: Looks great. A breeze to setup.
  • Cons: I heard no difference from this and my $150 Klipsch speakers. Not wall mountable without 1st party hardware. Subwoofer corners nearly sliced my hand open...

Very Impressed

John S., Newegg
10 March 2014
  • Summary: If you are looking for decent speakers without breaking the bank, these are awesome. I got an open box deal on these and paid 160$ less than retail price otherwise I wouldn't have gotten these. If you aren't looking to drop a few grand on a home theater these are one of your best options.
  • Pros: Good sound from highs to lows. Very compact. Easy to set up. The remote it comes with is awesome.
  • Cons: Wish it could hit some lower tones.

not impressed

  • Summary: Place anywhere...as long as the wires will run that far.
  • Pros: Good sound
  • Cons: Wires are large and long. They actually take up more space than the speakers themselves.

Think twice before you buy these.

James A. Frissina "jfriss", Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: Cons: 1. The dialog from TV or Movies gets lost to the point that you need to increase the volume over and over again, until the volume is overwhelming, at which point, you still can not clearly hear the dialog (the voices), just the background sound effects. 2.

Power in little package

gene boyles, Amazon
10 August 2013
  • Summary: Incredibly compact light little speakers, one per side of the tv set, woofer easy to hide behind the tv table... Very simple set up... Really amazing powerful rich sound, you can probably blow the doors off the whole street if you turned it up enough... Dont. You wont have to.
