Frustration

  • Excerpt: Love the sound but I've had problems even the Bose tech support, and tech guys as Best Buy can't fig
  • Pros: Great Sound, easy set up; even for a dumb SOB like me.
  • Cons: Maybe some software glitch, it's only been on the market a short time.

product is problematic

Kevin J. Bailey "Kevin", Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned Bose electronics and have always been very satisfied. What I did not realize when I purchased this system was the difficulty in integrating it with additional elements throughout the rest of my house. Yes, it could be done, but at a very HIGH price. For example, just adding some additional ambiant sound to my adjoining kitchen area to where the system would be installed was going to run an additional $1,000.00 in equipment plus installation.

it a nice system

  • Summary: But if u are action movie fans this system is not for u it lacks the power. if u do buy it up grade the cube speaker to the book shelf speaker like the 301 V or 201 V. this system is for those who are a Romance or Love movie fan it will fit all there needs. and those who are looking for a good system with speaker that u cant see bose will fit it. but u can buy other system at better prices from sony, Kenwood, JBL and have good sound just like bose.

Great sound - less features

Ian "Ian", Amazon

  • Summary: I always wanted a Bose. I have several friends who had the WAVE radio, and i figured it would be really cool to have the Big System for everything (DVDc, CDs, MP3s, etc). No more piles of machines lying around my TV. BUT... what I found out was shocking. 1) The system sounds Great. It's tough to tell what is real, and what is coming from the speakers. This is good. 2) It's got more then enough base to get you going. You have a separate Base control to max.

Don't get if you need Closed Captioning (CC)

Ralph Fontcuberta, Amazon
10 March 2004
  • Summary: The Bose line of DVD players seems to have some sort of filter that removes the closed caption signal. Even if a DVD is encoded with it, you won't be able to access it on your television. This has turned into a very expensive mistake for me. The sound is fabulous; deep bass and great spacing. Video is good -> great. But for those of us who need CC, it's a poor choice.
