Expensive & Major Disappointment - out $500!
25 June 2014
Summary: I bought this BA soundbar/sub from Crutchfield (in VA) in December 2011 for > $500 - in early 2013, the BT sub went out (just over the 1 year warranty) - a call to BA was useless (i.e. would have to have paid shipping both ways + repair) - well a few days ago the soundbar stopped working! SO, less than 3 yrs of partial function from this POS - I'm out a half grand!
Summary: I was very excited to get a 700$ product that was suppose to have quality for only 189$ after arriving at a great time, after hooking it up the SUB-WOOFER DID NOT WORK at all... I was on the phone with Boston acoustics for over and hour trying to trouble shoot when the final conclusion was the fuse in the sub-woofer must not be working or broken!!! Very disappointed!!!!
Summary: Received it quickly but it doesn't work. Sound bar works by using the buttons. Remote won't sync with it. Subwoofer worked for 2 minutes then sounded like a heart beat. Tried to get it to work for 2 hours and have up.
Summary: I purchased this model from a local appliance store. It went well with the 60inch HD tv and they gave me a hundred bucks off (I paid $199 for it). For the first three months it worked great, although I really couldn't tell when the woofer was on unless there was music playing in the program. I placed the woofer behind my sofa about 30 feet from the sound bar. After three months the woofer made this loud buzzing noise and wouldn't stop.
Summary: Ha big problems. I have a BA sound bar i bought a year ago and have been happy with the sound so i bought another. Out of the box this new one did not work so I contacted BA. They had me return it and Crutfield sent another right away. Now i am sending the other one back because BA said this one is defective also.
tough to set-up; very poor service from Boston Acoustics

Summary: I received my BA TVee 30 when promised and had it basically up and running in about 10 minutes. Great news! It sounded really pretty good considering no sub-woofer yet....it was not working. I assumed the problem was something with the wirelss setting but no combinations of changes worked. So, I put that aside and tried to "teach" my remote to operate the BA TVee.
Summary: Do not buy it unless you don't mind getting up every time you need to change the volume. And even then it still sucks. Doesn't sound that great anyhow, makes horrible noises when connected to an xbox, does not function with Bluetooth devices as described, and basically does not operate with any remote control. Customer support has ignored me completely. Please do not waste $600 on this POS like I did.
Summary: We had high hopes for this sound bar, and when it worked it sounded great. The problem was that it worked sometimes, then frequently cut out for no apparent reason. It worked best at very loud settings and would stop working when we turned it down. We tried getting this to work for 10 days before returning it. We called Boston Acoustics tech support 3 times but they were not helpful, basically saying to unplug it for 24 hours and try again! Very disappointing.
Summary: With all of the stellar reviews of this product I felt no need to try it in store, and purchased from amazon.com for $599. I buy most everything from amazon, and this is my first disappointment. The flaws I found include: 1. My apple products running ios 5 did not work with the tvee model 30 blue tooth as promised. Inconsistency occurred with an ipod, iphone, and ipad . Connections were possible for maybe a second of music and then blue tooth connection would drop out.
