  • 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: read most reviews about this system, decided to try it, after having using it awhile, I do like the sound better than the built in tv speakers. I think this would be better if Bose would add some tuning to get more mid range that it seems to lack.

Bose GS series II

  • Summary: As many of us do, I did a lot of research before buying a new home theater. I've always had the Home theater-in-a-box kind but this time I decided on the Bose based on looks, the simplicity of a 2.1 system and the mere curiosity to experience this system first hand.

Save $200 and buy the Bose Cinemate Series II

Nicholas Taylor, Amazon

  • Summary: Please note that my rating is purely based on price to value (not the actual sound quality which I believe is a 5 out of 5)... If you're considering the purchase of the new Bose CineMate GS Series II system please note that you might want to save some money and go with the earlier version, The Bose...

Bose Cinemate GS II

  • Excerpt: Ben niet tevreden over het geluid. Bas klinkt best OK, maar is alleen handmatig op de achterzijde van de baskast bij te stellen. Een universele instelling bestaat immers niet. Midden en hoog vind ik niet helder klinken en kunnen niet ingesteld worden.
