Bose Cinemate 1SR review

 

The Bose Cinemate 1SR is the brand's first effort in the soundbar category, but does it live up to the high standard of its previous products?

Low profile design ; Wireless sub auto-connects ; Easy calibration

High price ; Lacks dedicated modes ; No surround effects

At £1299 we're not sure the slightly miss-named Cinemate 1SR is competitive. That said, there's nothing to dislike about its low profile design, the convenience of its easy to use set-up, and the clarity and subtle bass of its stereo results.

Bose Cinemate 1SR review

 

Bose has to be different. You can't call the Cinemate 1SR a soundbar, it's a sound array. Likewise, the sub is not a sub, it's an Acoustimass module. Bose is also coy about giving out technical specifications, so I know not what the power output is of...

Delivers a wide, deep soundstage; wireless sub connection; ADAPTiQ to aid setup

No hi-res audio processing or iPod hookup

Incredible sound

 

Easy set up, amazing sound quality. Easy to hear whispers and loud scenes are well defined. Located in a long shaped room with great quality of sound from anywhere in that room.

Wanted another Bose product to take overseas

 

I purchased this to use in Asia, since it's compatible with electronics there.

It's Bose, what do you expect?

 

I researched this system for quite some time before I decided to purchase it and I was very hesitant due to the price. Once I got it home I put in a few of my favorite movies and was shocked when I heard things in the movie that I didnt even know were...

Superb sound quality, aesthetically pleasing

intermittent wireless sub signal loss, lack of wire for sub, lack of volume level display
