"BOSE, Marketeers, need to say anymore"3.5 starson by mikeste101
Pros: Actually has a solid feel for surround from two speakrs at movies and games.
Cons: Better brands for the money, just trust your ears, not what bose tells you to trust
Summary: One, is HIGH END AUDIO is not sold at the Wal-Mart of Electronics. Two, Listen to others before you buy, not that because Paul Harvey Owns One, being paid to get marketing by. I have listened to Bose Home speakers for awhile, and the home products they sell can be worthwhile, to worthless. The companion 5 has a nice presentable soundstage to offer with games and movies, as the two areas this system really feels good with. Musically I found trouble to find a presetable sound stage that was not all over the place. But again, These speakers are intended for movies and games to give surround feel for less wires and two speakers. Reason I give this system a 7. If you like music try the BIG Three THX certified speakers from Logitech, Creative, and Klipsch, and you can at least get some sound differences to listen to. Hey, you might even like the Bose Better. All I am saying is , I was a victim of marketing from Bose, buying on the spot. But when I listened to other comapanies and finally got the Bose rythym out of my head I say theres a vast world of speakers, and its technology out there. Just give all a fair try without comming to the conclusion, that This is the best. Check out the editors pick and TONS of reviews on the the Big Three. I have the Klipsch Promedia THX and I rate them better than the Bose, so does the editors, same goes with the Logitechs and the Creatives, which the editors rank those better than the Klispch. Price versus Performance. The pro Medias at Best Buy are $169.99 I bought mine the day after thanksgiving for $92.00 out the door. But if you are looking to pay $400.00 look at all your options because in this technological world Price does not mean everything.
