Bose 3.2.1 GS Series II compact home theater system Review and Prices

 

The Bose 3.2.1 GS Series II home theater system is ideal for small spaces that can't accommodate a true five-speaker surround sound setup. It is also a great option when running cables to rear satellites proves aesthetically or logistically problematic.

AMAZING BOSE QUALITY!

 

Video quality is excellent but the sound processing is the reason to get this product. Combined with a Blue-Ray player and HDTV the system is perfect for movies and listening to music or videos.

Clarity of sound is unmatched. I've had it for 5 - 6 months and have played just about everything through it that it can handle. It performs flawlessly every time

It is best for small rooms where typical surround sound systems are overkill but if you want an audiophiles system for your new HDTV like I did then you will not be disappointed. I only wish it had more HDMI inputs

Consumer review by:

Very disappointed considering the cost of the unit.

 

I've had this unit for a couple of years and have dealt with 2 problems off and on. One is that the volume level will shoot up so loud that it is difficult to get to the unit to shut it off because your ears are hurting. The other ... Expand full review

It does have good sound when it works. I've found the digital coaxial connection provides better sound than the optical connection

The 2 problems I've experienced have soured me on Bose products, and I won't purchase from them again

Good buy for a 2.1 speaker !Go for it !Very easy set up

 

A good buy if you like crisp n clear sound !

No distortion even if you increase the bass to maximum n volume to 100% it works fine

remote is way too small & easily lost under you or in sofa grooves. :P

Worth The Money

 

These speakers are probably the best on the market. If you're not looking to spend thousands but know better than to buy the crummy 5.1 set ups at best buy, let Bose tear it up. Hear the sound and you'll know the difference between making speakers and...

Excellent sound, awesome bass

bulky subwoofer

Consumer review by:

Sad bass response over priced

 

Mine died after a year and a half. So I took it apart to see why the Bass was so poor. I found a 4'1/2 inch driver that the Bass was depending on. How sad Bose is ripping people off by claiming that this small driver even with porting can produce Bass....

If anyone thinks this sounds really good. Then you obviously have never heard a good system. I bought it just for TV sound and at a Bose outlet. The plus is that it is easy to setup

Poor Bass, over priced, mid range excessive, Treble too little

We could not hear the sound of evil

BAD DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

 

The Bose 321 system is not worth even close to $700. I purchased this a year ago and regret it. The bass is poor. Anyone that gave this system 5 stars must work for Bose. We returned a Onkyo system with Bose speakers because it did not hook up to ......

Looks Good ; Easy to hook up

Subwoofer bass ; Not meant to play music. Movies yes but not music

Consumer review by:

Great sound for home TV.

 

Bought it recently. The sound is excellent. Went to best buy. Compared it with other systems like sony soundbar, polkaudio etc. But this one sounded better and after installing at home.. it was superb. Only drawback i would see is lack of inputs. I was...

Easy to setup ; Very nice sound. Perfect for HDTV ; Worth the money. can be real loud if needed

Less inputs

Product Specifications

The Bose CineMate II speaker system provides high quality home theater sound to get more from your HDTV experience. Just two compact speakers and a hideaway acoustimass module deliver sweeping cinematic sound that puts you in the middle of your movies, games and sports. Proprietary TrueSpace technology enables this immersive performance - without immersing you in equipment. There are no rear or center speakers, eliminating much of the wiring of traditional 5-speaker systems. Just connect the system right to your TV and control basic functions with a simple four button remote. The CineMate II system is an ideal choice for your first home theater speakers or a Bose surround experience in smaller rooms. The simplified, two speaker setup offers a hassle-free addition to your HDTV. And the improved acoustics provide exceptional value for home theater performance. Newly redesigned Articulated Array speakers - now with a striking, pure black finish - aesthetically match today's flat-panel TVs. The hideaway Acoustimass module reproduces resonant low notes that add drama to movies and games. And it now includes a dedicated bass control for your listening preferences. Place the module in a corner or out of view - all the sound seems to come from the compact speakers. The CineMate II speaker system only requires a few connections. It hooks up directly to your TV with minimal-if any-disruption to existing component connections. A small interface module houses your audio input from the TV and displays on/off status for your system. And a sleek, four button remote handles basic system functions.
