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.
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 $50 system. Very disappointing. At higher frequencies, it resonates well but just sound hollow and not...
Summary: Sounds great but there are some quirks. First, the acoustimass unit is huge. Think bigger thana desktop pc tower circa 2000. Which isn't bad in and of itself, but you need to put this thing somewhere and you have to run thick wires to your tv. You'll want to hide these suckers, they are conspicuous.
Summary: I own Bose 301 series, the older Bose 321 series from 5 years ago and now this new GS Series II. Bose for whatever reason, have always had the best sound of any system I've owned. I also have some Cerwin-Vega's, Klipsch, Logitech, Pioneer and Sony systems I've had.
Summary: If you are looking for decent speakers without breaking the bank, these are awesome. I got an open box deal on these and paid 160$ 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: 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: 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.
