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

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.

Delivers as promised!

 

This is a great product that does what it promises. We tested it out at a Bose store Demo and are happy with the results at home. Hookup is very simple and easy. Setting up the surround specifically for the room took 10 minutes. Discreet system with...

Good, But not great

 

I listen to this every day. It has two optical ports which helps in addition to a 3.5mm audio jack. For the 1500 it's good for what it is. Compared to other surround systems that bose has for 2500+ you can see a clear difference. Basically if you want...
