Q & As


Bose CineMate GS II, 2.1 Home Cinema Speaker System 4.8 5 4 4
Awesome piece of kit, I recently purchased this home cinema system on the back of receiving a Bose Soundlink Mini wireless speaker last Christmas. I was amazed at the sound quality that could be produced from such a small speaker that I instantly decided Bose was an excellent quality name. Having recently moved house, I was in need of setting up my home cinema system but was daunted at the prospect of trying to channel four speaker cables around my living room. Having read various reviews on the 2.1 style systems, I opted for the Bose system. The set up of this system is extremely easy as it plugs directly into the optical output from my television. I am just very glad that I now live in a detached house! The sound is awesome from two small speakers and the connected subwoofer. I am delighted with this system and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending it to anyone looking for a stylish home cinema which only needs two speakers. As suggested by Bose, I have chosen to site the subwoofer to the rear of my living room next to a cabinet so it is out of view. This gives the impression that all of the sound is coming from the two small speakers located on either side of the television. There is approx 12 feet of cable to play with from both the speaker cables and the cable that runs from the small receiver unit to the back of the subwoofer. The cables have serial plugs on the end of them (similar to what you find on the back of computer monitors). Unfortunately the cable was not quite long enough to reach to where I wanted to site the subwoofer. However the problem was easily rectified by purchasing two 2 meter serial extension cables. These cables are readily available in different lengths so you can easily have the subwoofer wherever you want in any size of room. I am more than happy to recommend this Bose system to anyone. It may not be the cheapest system on the market, but you know that you are getting a premium quality product that should last many years. 28 April 2014
Great sound The sound is truly awesome! very please with cinema experience. However thumbs down for not having option to see volume control on tv and no bluetooth connectivity for airplay. 11 March 2014
Silky sound and deep base Lovely sound quality with discrete small speakers and a large sub woofer giving deep base and true cinema sound to films. I think it gives better spread of sound compared to a sound bar. A massive benefit to the standard tv speaker’s to enhance the viewing experience. I looked and listened to many systems before making the purchase and the Bose system and I feel gives the richest and crispest quality filling the whole room. I previously had a Toshiba 5 speaker system with speakers at the back of the room as well as 2 at the front plus the subwoofer, which I feel gave a false surround sound with talking and music behind you. This Bose system is far more natural surround throwing the sound to either side of the room and the sub woofer giving real depth to the quality. Highly recommend! All cables are neatly tucked away and connection to the TV is easy with the included optical sound cable giving the best quality sound from TV, DVD and recorder and any additional added device – simple! 02 January 2014
