Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Premium sound, excellent base, well built. Easy setup.
Cons:Almost no user indicators for vol level, input source etc.
The Bottom Line: This is recommended for easy setup, premium sound through either a TV or iPod. Somewhat pricey.
This Bose self-contained speaker system does quite a good job for what I need. I have an apartment and needed some kind of decent stereo sound for my TV. It fills the12X15 ft room really well with good sound. I have brought it to several get-togethers and this thing became an excellent source of high-quality entertainment.... Bose did indeed deliver on my expectations for this appliance as I have had it for 2 years now with no problems.

Sound quality is equally as good from low volumes to chest-cavity-thumping volumes.
Simple to set up and it CAN be moved easily even though it's a bit heavy.
Drawbacks are that there is no indication as far as what volume the dock is playing at and it has only two weak lights on the SoundDock to let you know whether it´s playing through the iPod-compatible dock or through the jack-in (in this case my television). I get the feeling that it was designed to rely almost completely on your iPod to be both the display and controller as the remote controller is truly chinsy and devoid of any led lights or indicators.
For strictly home-theater use, you could get a better experience (and less cash outlay) with a home-theater speaker system that is separated into component speakers, but for my application this SoundDock 10 was exactly what met all my requirments: easy setup, appartment application, excellent sound, a degree of portability.
Recommendation is to try to place this thing directly below a television if you are using it as a home-theater component.... otherwise it's kind of weird to hear voices coming off-center of the tv.
