Bose Videowave II Review


The subjectivity in our AV industry is so dominant and drastic at times that it can practically influence the judgement and tastes of complete generations. A good example is Bose who has managed to influence AV enthusiasts generation after generation....

WHAT SAY AV? Yes, it does have its shortfall, mainly, absence of 3D video and also the lack of smart capabilities, as most TVs these days have, but priced at approximately Rs 5 lakh, the Bose VideoWave System II aptly fits the bill of a lifestyle...

Bose VideoWave Entertainment System II (46-Inch)


The Bose VideoWave II Entertainment System offers a few video-related improvements over the original iteration, but nothing has changed in terms of this high-end HDTV's phenomenal audio system. And that's a very good thing.

Powerful, spacious sound output. Sharp image quality. Unique user interface

Expensive. Lacks network connectivity and Web services. Middling black levels

When we reviewed the original Bose VideoWave Entertainment System back in 2011, we were blown away by its amazing Wave Tunnel sound system and its outstanding video performance. We were less impressed with its $5,000+ price and lack of networking...

Bose VideoWave review: hands-on


The Bose VideoWave entertainment system offers high-end viewing and sound quality without comprimising on style. Wave good-bye to mammoth sized speakers and say hello to a clutter-free living room

Bose VideoWave Home Entertainment System – review


Stuart O'Connor: Bigger and flatter TVs come at the expense of quality audio, but the VideoWave's built-in speakers deal with that problem

Exceptional sound quality and picture; home-cinema quality without all those annoying wires

The price; glitchy remote; the lack of a TV tuner

Bose Videowave first look


It's meant to be the 'best sounding TV' ever... but is the cost worth it?

Mind Blowing Surround Sound With No X-Speakers


I have this product, and I can tell everyone it is mind blowing when you hear it. just unreal, I think i'm like the 30th person to own one. I was looking for a new TV and I was going to buy a Bose system anyway. Guys are anyone ... Expand full review

I like the fact that you don't need to add a audio system with wires and speaker, This is a huge plus with the wife

Yes the price is high but that's Bose everyone knows that my wave radio I pruchase from Bose 5 years ago is still $500. and I must say although that's still high but at the same time a good feeling. I can't say that about the TV I pruchase last year
