Pros and Cons
Pros5

The sound is précis, crisp and clear. The lows are rumbling and thumping. The sound that comes out of it is amazing and gives the overall surround sound impression.

This is my 1st soundbar and it didn't disappoint me. I have another bose soundbar downstairs that really sold me on their sound quality. If you are using optical cable then there is an option in the bose music app to turn on soundbar automatically if ...  Read More

The bose is exactly what i wanted. At least it's portable enough to move around so that's a plus. The recommend distance/requirement of 30 ft is accurate, so ensure they are this distance or less from each other.

Comes with hdmi cable,optical, power and i/r remote. The only “con” i have noticed is that if i pause or sit on my roku menu for over 20 minutes the bar does tend to fall asleep and i have to hit the power button again on the remote to wake it up.

Bose soundbar 600 has built in google assistant and alexa assistant. Bose music app lets you control the music, volume, and mute mic from your phone. Audio sync with the tv or among the speakers is also available.

Cons3

Soundbar is very difficult to set up with lg c1 tv. The microphones for alexa integration are hot garbage. Why do they insist on installing alexa on a sound bar?

I legit have trouble getting it to work 99% of the time. It's completely insane how hard it is to find the magical combination of fiddling with it that will make it work. It is literally the only device that can't stay connected to wifi.

This one misses the mark completely! It’s 16 months old, barely used in my study and now a paperweight. Connectivity is also terrible. Rebought both items again from best buy for $120 cheaper and still had same issues.

Pros2

The new remote is probably the best remote control i’ve seen in a surround system. The backlit keys are also brighter so controlling it in the dark is a breeze. the menu utilizes the small led panel on the speaker strip to scroll through settings.

Ghz is the recommended frequency for a 5-fi router. Ghz is the most common 4.

Cons5

This soundbar still roars and it is far better than this nakamichi. This system lacks any directional audio detail. The center speaker is far inferior to my tv speaker and i am constantly shutting it off.

System has sync issues from bar to both subs. The subs crackle randomly even when no audio is being played. Bluetooth subs and side speakers lose connection for about 2 seconds.

After months with this unit, it is just unsatisfactory. That is why you see so many people trying to dump this garbage. Not one of the 3. Poor execution nakamichi.

The bass is the biggest disappointment. I'm very glad i returned it and went with the sony htz9f.

If i pause a movie it will take 3 to 7 seconds to get sound again after hitting play. If i fast forward or rewind the movie it takes 5 to 10 seconds for the sound to come back on. When you rewind 10 seconds it is pointless.
