The CineMate demo system on display in the store truly sounded fantastic. Crisp sound with deep booming bass during film clips, and excellent sound reproduction during concert clips. Having owned both a Bose Acoustic Wave unit and a Bose Wave Radio in the past, I expected Bose to deliver on the bass, assuming they used their wave technology in the Acoustimass. Sure sounded like it in the store. So I bought the unit, hooked it up, and -- no bass. I could not hear the Acoustimass farther away than 6 inches. The built-in TV speakers sound much better. Could be a defective unit? Perhaps. Truly disappointing.
