Pros and Cons

Pros4

The fewer the remotes, the better. The tv itself actually gets louder and has better sound. Unlike higher protocol connectivity models i.

Good sound quality, easy setup. Hooked up and working in 5-10 minutes. Connected with the optical cable. Easy setup to samsung smart tv.

The hubby loves it, for whatever reason. I love figuring out this stuff though, so the fun lasted a little longer! I usually leave it on the movie setting for everything because that setting has the most bass.

Bass is as expected, a little weak. The sound is clear and precise. She’s pleased and i am as well feeling that i got her a quality product at a good price. That's pretty awesome.

Cons3

It requires a full discharge of the capacitors before it will reset. By the time i realized that it was complete garbage, it's already past the return period.

At higher volumes, the music seems to noticeably fade in and out. It is only at high volume, but it is noticeable and unpleasant. Started making popping noise and cutting out.

I was never thrilled with this device. Inferior product and no support. Avoid and buy a cheaper unit elsewhere.

Pros2

The sound quality is fantastic and blows away the sound quality that comes through the t. Connecting the speaker to my t. Makes a huge difference. The dialogue is crystal clear, vocals sound amazing, the sound is centered and it can get very loud.

Bought this for my mother in law. It really fills the room with great, balanced sound. Very happy customer.

Cons3

Louder than my samsung tv speakers but not by a lot. Still, nothing from the speaker. I still remain so confused as to who allowed this, what happened to bose and why it was allowed to even make it to production since it's that *.

It works just fine until just after that warranty expires. Controller only has 4 * and no bluetooth option. Tried to change the battery in the remote but unit won't turn on.

Bose is horrible. Severely overpriced. Shame on bose for hustling this garbage on the public.
