Summary: I had a pair of Bose bookshelf speakers when I was just a teenager and I loved them(40 some yrs ago-lol). I was expecting good things again but not this time! This system was bought to replace an LG soundbar and it did NOT do a good job! I actually ended up returning it and bought a Sony soundbar with subwoofer at a fraction of the price and we much prefer the Sony system! We were VERY disappointed in the Bose system!
Summary: I really wanted buy the BOSE CineMate.I know lot of lot of place display that and I hear the sound just front of you. but if your room is big enough I don't recomend.Actually, that price is not cheaper than Hi-Fi AV system. The BOSE is very simple, small but good sound. that I decided to buy it. Finally, I bought POLK Audio RTi A9 on sale price comepare to that even I don't have woofer speaker. The sound is much better. The Bose is very expencive not best choice.
Summary: Bought this system because of Brand Name. Installed in my family room. Initial thought was sound quality will be astonishing but I guess I was wrong. Tried all the combination optical cable, composite cable and coaxial cable. Still quality is same. One thing I really liked Bass from Module. You can hear it even on third Floor. But sound quality if its in open room. Don’t waste your money.
