Boston Acoustics is a speaker company - and it shows.

Andrew Blackburn, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Boston Acoustics is a speaker company - and it shows. The TVee 30 is a 2.1/3.1 sound bar, so it makes no effort to simulate a full surround sound system. With that said, it does a very good job of reproducing both stereo and surround programs. In my configuration, I have the analog input connected to the television's analog stereo outputs, and the optical input connected to a Playstation 3. I have also linked two iPhones and an iPad over Bluetooth.

Great return for the money.

  • Summary: I bought a refurbished version for ~$200. Overall I am satisfied with this product, but it has its nuances. You have to setup the volume control using one of your own remote controls. At first I did this with the TV remote control, but doing so will end up controlling both the TV and the soundbar volume controls, and this can be very confusing, especially for guests. In the end I ended up using a spare remote control for the soundbar instead, which works fine.

Repeat Purchase

Steve, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I have a love hate relationship with this product. Love it because of all the mid priced sound bars I've looked at and purchased, this one actually does the job. The wireless sub woofer makes a huge difference in the performance compared to other products. I had purchased an earlier version a few years back and it went out. Replacement appears to be the only option so I decided to go with a competitor. Competitor is highly rated on Amazon.

Almost perfect!

Bob in Savannah, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30 sound bar after returning our second Sharp sound bar that was specified for our television, which is a Sharp Aquos 70" LCD (a Great TV by the way). Within two weeks of connecting the Sharp sound bar, it's HDMI 2 input failed, so whenever we wanted to watch something from the BluRay player, I would have to unplug the cable box from the HDMI 1 input in order to plug the BluRay in to a working input.

Some setup problems

Happy, Amazon

  • Summary: Biggest problem is the optical connection snapped when I was setting it up... So now I can only use it with RCA cables or bluetooth. Having said that, the bluetooth features are awesome, and the sound is great. Good product - just be careful when you're plugging it in...

The volume control is an inconvienance.

DDP, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this about a year ago, in the May of 2012. I had listened to several other similarly soundbars with remote subwoofers, Polk, Klipsh, and Yamaha at the $500 price point; I have not listened to the Bose soundbar, it isn't affordable for me. By far this was my personal favorite compared to the others I had heard. I have used all the features with success, the Bluetooth is okay and the volume control is an inconvenience, but bearable.

Small, "known" issues, but overall excellent.

Jim Winterbourne "JW", Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: The sound quality is what makes this soundbar a better choice than most others out there. We replaced a lesser model with this, and, while the remote-control directionality issue is noticeable, I'm continuously impressed by the completeness, power, and (relative) lack of coloration to the sound. It's great for dialogue, and the wireless sub brings a nicely integrated musical depth to soundtracks.

Please include a remote with this thing

Michael Consuegra, Amazon
23 July 2012
  • Summary: I was looking to get great sound in my family room without all the wires and the speakers all over the place. The TVee Model 30 came highly reviewed so I bought it. To be clear: I knew about the remote control issue before I bought it. Remote Control Issue: ===================== The TVee Model 30 doesn't come with a remote but you can program your TV/Sat/Cable Universal remote to control it.

Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30

marcwis, Crutchfield
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Hands down a rock solid soundbar that sounds great with both and videos.
  • Pros: Quick and easy setup. Crisp high's, mid's and just enough bass to not be too overwhelming.
  • Cons: Lack of a remote. For the price you'd assume one would be included... The range on the Bluetooth could be better.
