You can't really beat the novelty and convenience of this system – it's very unobtrusive, and in these days of multiple components in and around your home theater system the size and number of components is refreshing. You pay a lot for this...

Bose 3.2.1 GSX


After having had a look at the Bose 3.2.1 GSX system, we began to speculate on the price. The question being asked around the office was "How much do ...

Good mids and treble

2.1 system, Lacking bass, Will require it's own mortgage

We cannot in good faith recommend this system to anyone. Even if the sound quality was exquisite, a similar level can be achieved at a much lower price and in full surround.

The Bose 3-2-1 GS is easy to set up with decent sound, images and a swish set of looks

Good-looking, desirable but a tad expensive, the 3-2-1 is not a brilliant performer but nonetheless covetable

Bose 3·2·1 Series II Review - Home Cinema Kits


Is this new Bose compact home theatre in a box package a winner? Read our Australian review.

Excellent setup options, Rich sound, Compatible with other Bose units around the home, Virtual Surround

Media Centre tray just begs to be snapped off, Custom audio cables, Can't be described as inexpensive

Bose 3.2.1 GS DVD Home Entertainment System


Bose's new home theatre system promises serious performance from a compact package.

Overall We can't wait to get our hands on this system for a full test run. It's large asking price means the 3.2.1 GS is definitely aimed upmarket, but Bose usually makes that price difference worthwhile.

No Bang For The Buck


Why only 10% off? Because that is what BOSE told you?

Sounds nice

When you hear the system at the big store and then hear another system seconds later that is half the price and sounds the same, makes me wonder why BOSE cost so much more money

Great sound


This unit does require setting up. Out of the box the sound and picture are OK but not great. When properly setup the sound will rattle the walls.

I have a fairly large living room and this unit fills the room with sound. I looked at several 5.1 systems but didn't like all the speakers or cables required. I have owned this for over 2 years and am very pleased with it

A little pricey

Good and Bad


The 2 Main points that I would like to make is that its a bummer that this is not Blue Ray. Secondly it is truly dissapointing that there is no pass through for HDMI. That is just totally weak at this price point. It is what it is, a fully integrated...

Ultra Simple to Hook up. Free yourself from the clutter of a million wires. Simplistic Control. High WAF [Wife Acceptance Factor]. Integration of DVD into main unit is nice. Voice dialog for movies is clear

Weak that at this price point it is not Blue Ray. Very dissapointing that there is no pass through HDMI connection, thus if you want to hook up your satellite/cable box you utlimately will still have 2 HDMIs going to your TV. Dissapointing that they...

Product Specifications

The Bose 3-2-1 Series II DVD system delivers a home theater experience with fewer speakers and far less complexity than most conventional home theater systems. Setup is easy: With just two front speakers and an Acoustimass module you're connected to home theater sound performance that brings your favorite movies and music to life. A sleek, integrated media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner. And a programmable, easy-to-use universal remote control lets you command your TV and most of your entertainment devices along with your DVD system. The 3-2-1 II DVD system delivers the home theater experience you want, but with less complexity, fewer speakers and no wires running to the back of the room. It even comes with a step-by-step DVD to walk you through the process. But there's more to enjoy than easy setup. Articulated Array speaker design combines with TrueSpace digital processing circuitry to create spacious home theater sound from two front speakers. The Bose Acoustimass module completes the package, providing the rumbling of a speeding train or the bellowing of a bassoon that brings movies and music to life. Place it out of sight, and enjoy full, lifelike sound for all your home entertainment. A DVD system shouldn't limit your home entertainment to the latest DVDs and CDs. From classic films to older television shows to your videotape library, Bose proprietary Videostage 5 decoding circuitry brings home theater excitement to practically everything you listen to. An integrated media center houses a progressive scan DVD/CD player and AM/FM tuner in an elegant design that blends easily into your home decor. And with three inputs, you can easily connect a VCR and other equipment you already own. You can also enjoy this DVD system as part of an expanded home entertainment experience. With Bose link, the 3-2-1 II system is now compatible with select Lifestyle systems.
