  • Enhanced Sound with Ease

    Feb 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, ease of setup, great sound, clutter free.
    Cons: No treble or bass adjustments.

    Summary: Bose clearly advertises the CineMate System as an enhancement to your home theater, and Bose delivers. The CineMate system is of very high quality and installs with ease. The CineMate is targeted at a viewer who is looking to upgrade a TV sound system, ... read more

  • Impressive sound by Bose!

    Jan 11, 2014 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy Setup. Sleek designing. Great sound.
    Cons: Price is a little HIGH! No bass and treble adjustments. Small Remote.

    Summary: As a real theater sound fan, I am always looking for the next best thing in both sound and video.  I love having the movies and even television come to life with real pulse pounding bass, and enveloping sound that just gives you goosebumps.  On ... read more

  • Very Nice System

    Nov 23, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Style, Rich Deep Bass, Clean Crisp Highs and Mids, Stereophonic Separation yet Strong Voice Centering.
    Cons: Except for Bass, source must have audio adjustment controls if you want to equalize tones.

    Summary: Comparing the CineMate Series 2 side by side to my $2300 Bose V20 5.1 and to an old $450 Teac Surround system.  I used many settings on the V20 and Teac from 2.0 stereo to 3.1 to 5.1 , "wide" and "normal" on the Teac.  I also tried RCA inputs, ... read more

  • I had a buzz

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to put together Clear tv sound Customer Support Techs that don't quit
    Cons: Trying to reach customer support (hours) The buzz

    Summary: I received my Cinemate system two days ago and it took me (a tech savvy person) about 6 hours to install this system over the two days. It was very easy to put the system together (about 20 minutes) but then I turned it on. I had a loud buzz/hum that ... read more

  • Bose Cinemate delivers!

    Jun 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Bring high end sound to TV and DVD in a bedroom or den
    Cons: A bit pricey.

    Summary: Let's say you have a TV in a bedroom or den. Chances are, since DVD players are so cheap, you have one of those connected as well. Odds are that you don't have a full surround sound home theater set-up though. First, they can be large and expensive, and ... read more

  • Missing The Point ... ?

    May 2, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy Set-Up, Bose Quality Sound, Ease of Use
    Cons: Bose generally sacrifices bass response

    Summary: I think some of you are missing the essential point of this system. BOSE does not advertise this as a 5.1 replacement system, but as an upgrade to television sound. Those who know sound quality will tell you TV speakers are horrible, and $500 for a sound ... read more

    Pros: Easy set-up.
    Cons: Zero bass -- less than the built-in TV speakers.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

  • Not worth the money for this Bose system

    Rated Show
    Pros: Sounds better than the stock speakers built into the television.
    Cons: For this price you can find better quality/sounding speakers. No bass.

    Summary: I listened to this set up in the store many times and it always sounded great, but then I received it for Christmas and set it up in my home and was very disappointed!There is no bass at all from this very large powered sub-woofer, which blows my ... read more

  • Great but ZERO bass

    Dec 11, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: EASY to set up. Outstanding high end frequencies from two speakers.
    Cons: The bass output is downright pathetic. No adjustment for the bass either!

    Summary: Well, I knew already that Bose has never been known for their subwoofer (Acoustimass® modules) as they call them. But I never expected to have to sit just a couple of feet away to even hear it. No level control either?! The regular speakers sound ... read more

    Pros: Easy set up.
    Cons: Defective Unit. It simply does not work.

    Summary: Most excellent paper weight I ever bought for $499. The remote works great...programming it to control TV & DVD player was a snap. However the Interface unit is defective making the whole Bose System totally ... read more

    Summary: i have the bose wave system and was very impressed with the sound quality. i didn't imagine such big sound from such a small thing. so i decided to buy the cinemate to go with my plasma. it sounded horrible. the cyber acoustic system i had hooked up to ... read more

    Pros: Easy to install,compact and it serves it purpose.Easy to program Universal remote control.
    Cons: Expensive but maybe high cost means good quality.

    Summary: I bought one and has been a week, I'm figuring it out how to increase the base of a cinemate system.Because, I'm not satisfied initially of what I'm hearing and hardly you can't hear the base (woofer) and it got a very pale sound. I want to return it ... read more

    Pros: Great sound and easy setup.
    Cons: Would like to be able to adjust the bass and treble.

    Summary: I bought this product because I didn't want to get in the attic and wire surround speakers. I already had a great DVD player. I ordered the unit Monday 10:00 AM and it was on my door step Tuesday before 10:00 AM. The sound is really awesome on movies. ... read more

    Cons: None

    Summary: I just hooked everything up, and I am sorry for some of the other sad reviews, but my system is great. The sound is everything I had expected from Bose, so much better than the TV speakers. It has a rich, robust sound that is really nice on the ears, ... read more

    Pros: Ease of setup. Ummmmm.........that's pretty much it.
    Cons: NO BASS. No settings controls. Pretty much everything.

    Summary: If you are buying this system hoping for 5.1 sound, do not waste your money. Yes, it is easy to setup. Yes, it IS bose. Yes, it is under $500. That, however, is where the positive things to say about this system ends. If you are just looking to merely ... read more

    Pros: No multiple speakers to place!
    Cons: Maybe the price. Paid $499 @ Best Buy. Worth it tho!

    Summary: Wonderful sound. Very easy to set up, in fact my 13 year old hooked up everything needed. It also has a instructional video to help with step by step instructions. We added this to our 42 inch plasma that we hung above our fireplace, and the difference ... read more

  • Not worth it...

    Pros: Typical good, not great, Bose sound
    Cons: Everything else, including no volume or bass/treble control. For $500, you can do much better.

    Summary: Although Bose advertising implies that this system contains speakers that can be mounted on the wall next to your television, it cannot be accomplished, even with the extra($70) brackets they sell for that purpose. The plugs are so big, you would have to ... read more
