Bose VideoWave Entertainment System II (55-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 you buy the VideoWave II, you also get the Bose White Glove treatment, which includes delivery and setup of your HDTV. The company will hook the set up to your existing A/V components, configure the audio to your specific room using proprietary...

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

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?

Consumer review (

Husbands purchase


My husband wanted this tv. He wasn't 100% happy with it. But that's most likely because we don't have a blue ray player to take advantage of the picture and sound quality. The demo on the system shows you the television at its best. My husband wanted...

Surround with no wires to speakers and not speakers everywhere.

Needs set top box, need quality material for its full effect
