Won't output any DTS content

B. Kemper, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: Remarkable sound from Dolby 5.1 sources. Easy to install if you have an optical digital output from your HDTV Cons: Won't decode any DTS-ES or DTS-HD signal, the latter being the most common for Blueray discs. You must step down DTS sources to PCM, losing most of the 5.1 mix and ALL of the magic this system offers with Dolby-encoded content. I experienced the Cinemate system at both Best Buy and at the Bose store in our local mall.

Good but very limited sound

Sean, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: Sound was fine but not worth the money for only 2.1 sound. If they gave you 3.1 sound it would have been almost acceptable. I returned it for a 400 dollar 5.1 sound system and am much happier with the sound. It does sound great for music but does not come close to 5.1 surround no matter how well it sounds. I am glad that it went back. Too expensive for 2.1 sound and their magic can't change that.
