Great system for the bedroom and living room if on a budget

Summary: I like this system a lot for the bedroom. Takes up very little space and if found for the right price a good catch. Definitely do not pay over $350. Once you do other better products starts to come into the picture. This model has been replaced so expect it to drop in price.
Best satellite and powered sub system you ever wanted!

Summary: If you serious about the sound quality and don't want to compromise with the newer designed one piece soundbar to limit the stereo effect, the GS II is the gear you want. Pros: Bass, deep, rich and clean. Excellent dynamic range. Good sound stage. Easy set up.
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...
Summary: I have owned this for one week. I bought it when it was priced at $359. At this price, I think this is the best Cinema 2.1 system for such a small foot print. Bose is very good that making small speakers sound big. And in this case, they do not disappoint me.
... TV before I bought this system and was very disappointed with it

Summary: I had a soundbar on my 65" TV before I bought this system and was very disappointed with it. I cannot believe the difference in sound there was when I hooked this up. Extremely easy and quick to connect and the sound is fabulous!
Summary: I was very surprised at the sound these little speakers put out. It took some time getting used to not having an EQ & trusting Bose's experts to replicate the audio in the way it was intended. I usually removed more of the mid-range, but after a week or so I was used to it.
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.
Summary: I wouldn't go so far as to call myself an audiophile and I don't know many technical audio terms, however I do find that I am not so easily satisfied or fooled by mediocre sound quality as much as most people (I can't stand to listen to any Beats by Dre products).
Summary: I was expecting great preformance from these because of the name. They met my expectations and are better that what I thought they would be. I had heard these in the store, and thought they sounded good. Once assembled in my home they are crisp and clear.
