Summary: I am not a Bose fanboy. I personally own a surround sound that I pieced each part separately. My speakers are big, bulky and for the same price my system is better then this Bose. But thats not the point of BOSE. I bought this for my dad. Not a tech savy guy AT ALL! but he gets it. It's easy to understand, and I really feel the best "Boxed" surround sound. Loses 1 start because the price.... c'mon Bose, this ain't the 90s anymore, technology isn't as expensive.

Summary: Sound is fabulous. This unit replaced a 10 speaker highly expensive system and sounds much better. Have listened to system in stores many times over the last few years. Figured the store setups optimized the sound and it would never work in real life. Boy was I wrong. Can't say enough about the sound, ease of use and overall value. Setup was so simple. On screen step by step instructions for every device I added.
Summary: This system has great sound and the remote is really nice. I wish it was offered in white (black is the only option). It is expensive when compared to other systems, but we have always had good luck with Bose products. I wish that the remote worked better with the Apple TV. I still have to use the Apple remote to turn on the Apple TV...the Bose remote won't turn it on. The Bose remote does turn on all of my other components.
Summary: I bought this item because I had seen it demonstrated last summer in a Bose store. I went through the complete installaton and found that the system wouldn't work. I contacted a Bose store to see if they had any insight on the problem and they gave me some ideas of what to try, but that didn't resolve the problem. They also referred me to Bose Tech support. When I called them they tried to fix the problem, but were unsuccessful.
Summary: I chose the Bose system because I had Bose speakers with with my other unit which I had for 25 years and still worked fine ,then my brother-in-law got a older Bose and it really impressed me so I really checked out all options of which would be best and Bose won, a little pricey but worth it . It was so easy to set up ,even with all the components I hooked with it and best of all only one remote,love it . I would recommend it to anyone. Well worth a 5 rating.
