Pros The design and Sound quality.
Cons No display on front of unit.
Summary Ok... I have read all the reviews on this sight and seem to be one of 2 reviewers that love this product. When I read reviews I like to know where and who it is coming from, so I tend to test products on my own and make my own opinion. The fact that Bose has been able to get full ranged sound from a unit this small is astounding. I cranked it up to the full volume of 100 and it never distorted, of course 85 is as far as I can stand for prolonged listening. At 85, if you close your eyes it really sound like you are in a jazz club listening to a live music performance, but hey that is just me. Not sure how one could not love this product but it doesn't matter, because I do.
Pros Almost everything
Cons No tweaking the bass & treble
Summary Sound and looks are subjective period...
That being said I support the product, here's why. The sound in dead on accurate (at least according to my ears). Remember sound is subjective... Looks are fantastic, looks like a piece of art, a classic. Placement is everything reguarding sound energy. Experiment with different locations in your available surroundings and find that "sweet spot".
Wonderful pristine sound I look forward too.
I own two of the "others" and Bose sounds the best and is a finished product ready for the market. The others are nice but fall short in quality control. Yes I too miss the lack of bass & treble control for tweaking different media. Take it for what it is... It's not a $$$$$$$ esoteric system.
Pros sounds ok in the kitchen
Cons don't compare it to anything and it's great
Summary No highs, No lows, oh,,,its Boze!
Don't be a Bozo, compare, listen, get something else
Pros SOUND, DESIGN, portability
Cons OF COURSE IT IS A LITTLE PRICEY, but you pay for quality..so who cares!!!!
Summary Now, I have been on various websites like CNET and other sites that review electronics. Some of the people who have reviewed this product don't make any sense. Everyone is entitled to their opinions! This UNIT is just great. I got mine Friday. I originally had the wave radio. It was nice, but I was experiencing some difficulties with the cd player. BOSE was great about it, they gave me a full refund. Then, I ordered this model. I was sooooooooooo impressed by the sound that comes out of this small, compact unit! All those people who are nitpicky and so darn opinionated, BE QUIET!!! If you want a GREAT, and I mean GREAT sounding system that is compact, easy to use and that you can take from room to room, BUY THIS....It is worth every penny! Another thing, I have read where people say, I turned this unit all the way up and was not impressed with the sound. The average music listener doesn't turn any stereo ALL the way up to the max! They may play their music a little louder at times. Trust me this system can handle it!!!! So readers ingore those people please and MAKE THE INVESTMENT!!!
"Mediocre sound"on by jbaluyut
Pros Nice design
Cons Poor sound, way overpriced
Summary It sounds like a regular boombox with reverb. Not a tight sound. Personally, the Tivoli table radios sound much better - and at a quarter of the price.
