BOSE 321 GS Series II DVD home entertainment system review

 

Like some remote theological concept, sometimes the more you search for an explanation for something, the harder it becomes to find. Understanding why American audio R and D guru's BOSE have chosen Ted Rogers' famous catch phrase, 3.2.1, for their...

Look, size, sound, acoustic technology

Price, display size, no recording capacity

Another corking system from BOSE. The price is a little off putting, but the quality can't be questioned and this system will cover all your needs.

Bose 3-2-1 Series II

Good for the 1st 2 years....

 

Great sound and easy to use/ set up. However 2 years old and will not play DVD's. @ $1000 that is $500/ year. Not a great return. In process of contacting BOSE for repair and will update after contacting them.

Easy to use

Unreliable

Product Specifications

The Bose 3-2-1 GS II DVD home entertainment system puts you at the center of exciting home theater with greater simplicity and fewer wires. Just two visible Gemstone speaker arrays - small, powerful 3-2-1 speakers - and a hideaway Acoustimass module deliver enhanced sound performance from almost anything you watch. Setup is simple: No center or rear speakers means no wiring to the back of your room. An elegant media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player with AM/FM tuner. And an easy-to-use universal remote control is programmable to run most of your entertainment devices together with your system. Enjoy the spaciousness of theater-like sound in the comfort of your home. The 3-2-1 GS II DVD system builds on the award-winning performance of the original system to create exciting home entertainment with crisp, clear dialog and dramatic sound effects. Bose patented Gemstone speaker arrays with breakthrough TrueSpace digital processing circuitry transform home entertainment into a dramatic sound experience. And these elegant speakers are 50% smaller than the original 3-2-1 system speakers. The hideaway Acoustimass module provides the cinematic depth and orchestral sweep that bring movies and music to life. It doesn't have to be seen to be effective: You can place this module out of sight to enjoy enhanced performance with fewer visible components. Best of all, this system is simple to install and use. You just connect three wires and plug it in. A setup disc even walks you through the process, step by step. The 3-2-1 system's elegant media center orchestrates your complete home entertainment experience, including today's most popular audio and video content. It houses an integrated progressive scan DVD/CD player, AM/FM tuner and inputs for three additional sources. And the sleek media center is designed to complement the look of most plasma/LCD televisions. Bose 3-2-1 II systems are equipped with Videostage 5 decoding circuitry to deliver home theater performance from almost any source. Even classic movies and TV programs recorded before surround sound will sound lively and room-filling. From vintage videotapes to the latest DVDs, 3-2-1 systems make a difference in all your home entertainment. You can also enjoy this DVD system as part of an expanded home entertainment experience. With Bose link, the 3-2-1 Series II system is now compatible with select Lifestyle systems.
