Great all in one system


I purchaced these as a refurbished unit and saved 500.00 also got them with 12 mo. financing really a great deal. Yes i understand you can buy better components seperatly, but this really is a great all in one package. I know there are larger speakers...

Great all in one package ; I enjoy the streamlined look of the AMP and small speaker size. Sounds EXCELENT!!!! Have it in my large living room that's 20'x25' and it is LOUD and CLEAR ; I noticed that wall mounting the speakers enhanced the sound...

None so far

My suggestion is to look at something like the Onkyo Home theatre in a box if your looking that does everything. High current outpout means clean audio much better base response out of their powered sub will give you more of a theatre like experiance...

good sound for classical music lovers

B.ring ; ; S.uberwoofer ; E.xtra ; Thats what BOSE stands for.. I used to work in the home theatre field line of work doing installs and sales. All I will say about BOSE is that they are overpriced and way overrated. You can easilty spend 1000.00...

When I called Bose they told me basically OH WELL! We sell a sound system, not cables. No solution for the problem. IMO thanks for buying, SORRY about your luck.!

Way over priced for a plastic toy.


I learned very quickly that the people that love Bose have no experience at all in listening to different speakers or listening to live music. Most Bose owners that love them either upgraded from a clock radio or never heard anything but Bose. I ...

Easy to hook up.

Bad sound. Bad quality. Bad price. Felt like I purchased a flea market product.

This is a great product from Bose


I have been looking at Bose systems for at least 3 years and finally decided to purchase one. I purchased the system for the QUALITY of sound. You can purchase a less expensive system and get a BIGGER sound but you will be missing out. I researched ...

The price is a bit hard to digest.

Product Specifications

When used with your widescreen TV, should home-theater sound be heard and seen? According to Bose, sound should only be heard. Bose makes it so easy with this out-of-box V20 system. TV and sound meld into an encompassing experience. Bose V20 home theater system offers HD compatibility for your DVD player and other components. Direct/Reflecting cube speakers deliver lifelike surround sound and our ADAPTiQ system customizes that sound to your room. Video upscaling ensures your movies and sports always use the highest resolution capabilities of your display, up to 1080p over HDMI. The Lifestyle V20 system presents a different approach to home-theater and a better way to experience it. There's no need for a large, complex receiver. Instead, connect your DVD player, gaming console and other high-definition components to the Bose V20's well-labeled media console. Your connections are concealed once you tuck the console out of view. All you see is a standalone display to receive and control system information. Realistic sound can make you feel like you're in the middle of the action. Direct/Reflecting cube speakers fill your room with compelling surround sound to bring movies, music and sports to life. These small speakers work in concert with a hideaway Acoustimass module. Its exclusive technology provides the emotional intensity you feel at the theater and rich, powerful lows you hear at a concert hall. Its impact can't be missed even when hidden out of sight.
