Thoughts, opinions of the Bose Solo?
Bose = The Monster Cable of speakers.
It's Bose. That says it all. Crap.
Have you been anywhere to hear it for yourself?
It all depends on where in your home (room) it is to be used? everthing else in room also affects sound.
Bose may not sound good to everyone so it all depends on what sounds good to you.
+1......While not a Bose fan I agree. A lot of variables determine sound quality. Room size, materials in room, and most importantly, personal preference.
Which would recommend.
Any company that can afford to Spam TV the way they do, does NOT need my money.
Depends on the budget.
That pretty much sums it up.
Got no highs? Got no lows? Gotta be Bose!
Although their $200 clock radio does sound pretty decent, but I'm not looking to spend $200 on a clock radio :lol:
It all depends on your budget and listening tastes, but Boston Acoustics, Klipsch, Polk Audio, Yamaha come to mind. Decide whether you want just soundbar or soundbar plus subwoofer, for richer bass.
Pretty much what I expected to read. We'll stick to our tried and true 5.1 setup.
If you're on a small budget and can't go with a 5.1 system then check out Polk Audio's selection of soundbars. Their price ranges between $350.00-$1,000.00.
If you can't go with a full 5.1 setup, then select another setup. 2.0, 2.1, 3.0, or 3.1. Anything but a soundbar...yuck.
While nothing beats a 5.1 setup Soundbars are useful if your TV is in a very small room.
About as useful as a screen door on a submarine, in my book. You'd be better off with two bookshelfs or nothing at all. Fake surround and soundbars are a gateway drug.
You tell em'..
Bose are actually ok. Really, they sound good. Sound great? Well, if your an old man who argues about **** like this on the Internet well, probably not(cause he is always correct). For what you want to spend they'll sound fine.
I once thought that. Friends of ours have a very small summer cottage on lakefront property. Living room is 8' x 10'. They have a Samsung 40" LCD with a Polk Audio Surround Bar there. While not a 5.1 setup the surround bar was a vast improvement over the TV's speakers and after hearing it I can honestly say the surround bar in that situation can hold it's own against a 2.0 setup.
