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

 

Can the Bose Cinemate 1SR live up to the hype around the brand's SoundDocks?

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

High price ; Lacks dedicated modes ; No surround effects

Excellent & Small (Wired Woofer)

 

Small system but much better sound and base than my nuch bigger Pioneer system.

Subwoofer IS WIRED. This was a surprise and not described in the listing. The subwoofer has big wires about 6' - 8' long creating an installation challenge.

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...

Bose CineMate Speaker System

 

Very Good Sound. We have to use only with TV. We Cannot separately use without changing inputs. But overall sound quality is very very very good.

Consumer review by: Eric (bestbuy.ca)

Big sound in a minimal package

 

Modern LCD flat screen displays have lousy built in speakers and connecting the TV to a HIFI system is now common place. Until I purchased this Bose system, I had to connect to my multiple element HIFI system (separate amp and processor, 7.1 speaker...

Excellent

 

We had previously bought a home theatre system from another company, but after a few years we grew tired of the excessive booming of the bass, and the inability to HEAR what anyone was ever saying in the movies or on TV. This was super easy to install,...
