Pros Great design. Compact size. Good sound from small speakers. Picture quality is top notch.
Cons Programming remote wasn't as flawless as they claim.
Summary I bought this system yesterday, and spent about 3 hours putting it all together. Most of the time was spent setting up the speakers and running all the wires. The process was rather simple, and organized. I replaced a very high end Sony AV receiver, and two floor speakers with a good sized center speaker. I thought I would give up a lot of sound, but that wasn't the case. The picture quality has improved noticeably. The colors seem to pop more. One negative was that I was unable to program my Directv HD/DVR remote into the Bose System. Nor was I able to get my Apple TV remote to be recognized. Those are minor inconveniences, and overall I am happy with this system. There is more to discover as it is such a new product, so I will post if any surprises surface.
Pros Very easy to install , big sound from tiny speakers sharp crisp wao
Cons No dought about price but this is life partner stays long heavy duty solid stuff pay once and enjoy outstanding sound quality , its fact believe me.
Summary I use so many other stuff crazy about home theaters but this bose system I have no words. Before when I dont have this system I think the same like others but now I realize this is some thing totally different I love my dream system.Highly recommended

Pros Super easy set up that conforms to the room you are in. Handles all the components and with the SL2 rear wireless speaker module, the system looks clean and efficient.
Cons Only had it one day, but noticed subtitles were getting stuck on my screen during a movie. Not sure if related to the Bose, but just started happening after Bose addition.
Summary We purchased this at a sale which saved us a few hundred bucks. I was initially looking at the 1SR sound bar, but for only a few hundred more, I decided to go with the T20 since it added some longevity and versatility over the long run. And obviously it's true 5.1 and not just a sound bar that sounds like 5.1. My wife's only requirement was that no wires run front to back, so that's why I was initially looking at the sound bar (in addition to the cheaper price), but after finding the sale and then looking further into the SL2 wireless accessories, we made the plunge. From walking in the door to playing a movie with the system, was about 2 hours which included getting all my components moved from the TV to the Bose and using the awesome Adaptique system for set up (in addition to hiding wires and cleaning up). All in all, not too bad and the instructions are clear as day. Obviously, Bose is expensive and I'm certainly no expert, but the sound quality is impeccable (even with the wireless rear speaker setup). Sure, you can get a similar setup for half the cost or even better, but I have a feeling the craftsmanship, the adaptability, the sounds quality and the overall refinement will be majorly lacking. So, like the heading says, wait for the sale (or the birthday gift certificate) and take the plunge, it will be worth it over the long term.
Pros 1. Sound so real you think you are there.
2. Small size of Cube speakers
3. No super load music and hard to hear voices.
4. Truly an amazing unified remote. It controls my FioS, BlueRay, Apple TV, Bose Sound and my TV.
Cons 1. Very Expensive. However when you consider you will keep this for atleast 20 years it really only costs you $8.33 per month ($100 per year).
Summary There is absolutely no comparison in sound quality when it comes to Bose. There are people out there that say you can get the same quality for less money. What they don't understand is the technology behind Bose's equipment. Bose lives, eats and breathes sound design. Period. I have listened to the "professional quality" designs that costs 4 times this bose. I have heard nothing that sounds like this system. Crystal Clear, amazing bass, Auto calibration for your room. It's just plain amazing
Pros Ease of use. Ease of setup. low profile equipment. Great sound and picture Integrated all my addons and remotes easily
Cons for price, an Am/Fm tuner would be nice. Could easily find cheaper. but wouldnt be as satisfied as this fit MY needs. Acoustimass is more of a deep bass hub as opposed to a main subwoofer,
Summary Couldnt be happier. Sound bounces of walls and cant tell where sound is coming from. Awesome. Need no experience in Audio/Video to hook up. Just follow on screen guide. Great sound range in all types of music movies. Bose haters will hate it because of the name and price. Maybe they are mad they cant afford such a nice unit.....
