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

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...

Love the new smartTV and sound setup

 

The service guys in the TV department are very knowledgeable and helpful in finding the best product. After viewing TV on an old tube TV (until it stopped working), a 64-inch Samsung smartTV with Bose sound system makes a world of difference! The only...
