Pros Sounds great at medium and low volume.
Cons High frequencies emphasized at high volume.
Summary My theory is that people who like quality loudness are the ones who provided the negative reviews. For low to med volume levels this table top is excellent. That is, pleasant highs with a warm bass.
Pros Great sound!
Cons Pricy for a system that is very minimalist in terms of design and functionnality.
Summary I haven't bought the system. The sound is great but as someone pointed out, it looks like an air purifier. I was disppointed to see at the boutique that the system lacked the design and refinement that I would expect for such a high price. The bose people will argue that it's the sound that counts and that other more design systems lack the Bose quality. Error in reasoning, one doesn't have to exclude the other to exist. Bose should put tht test to cosummers and have for the same sound this basic model and an other with more design to it and a few more functionalities. They've certainly tested these options but the bottom line and Brand positioning is probably more where they want it to be. I guess you can't please everyone if you want to hold true to a precise Brand positioning.
Cons no cons !!!
Summary Highly recommended as a second stereo if you live in a larger house, but great for an apartment. Ultimate portable party machine!!! Placement is very important to bring out sound quality and bass. Makes all the difference.....bose is the best!!!Este sistema tienen un sonido muy limpio fuerte y de gran calidad lo recomiendo 100%
