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: 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: 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.
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.
Summary: Pros: Great BOSE sound with TV, streaming video, DVD player. Good for music too. Bi-directional front speakers have surround sound effect if speakers are facing walls correctly. Can adjust subwoofer volume separately from other speakers (bass level can be adjusted, which is important to me since I...
Summary: Bose CineMate GS Series II. I've owned this 2.1 system for about 5 months now. My wife and I are loving this home theater sound system. We bought this to replace a 3 year old Samsung sound bar. We live in a 1000 sq ft apartment unit. This sound system is great for a small living room space.
