Product Description

About Bose

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since then, Bose engineers have focused on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the Bose Solo TV sound system.

About The Product

Are you a devoted TV fan? Imagine if everything you watch sounded dramatically better. The Bose Solo TV sound system reveals every last detail of the sounds you’re meant to hear in your favourite programmes. Most flat panel TVs simply can’t deliver this level of depth from their built-in speakers.

There’s only one speaker and only one audio connection to the TV, it couldn’t be simpler.

One speaker and one connection.

The Bose Solo TV sound system is designed for TVs with bases that are no wider than 50 cm and no deeper than 25 cm which make Bose Solo fit neatly under TV’s up to 81 cm and even some TV’s up to 106 cm. It’s the perfect option for improved sound in your living room or in another room like the bedroom, guest room or home office. Just make one connection to the TV and one plug into the wall. Now you’re ready for an entirely new experience. The first time you hear it you’ll discover that there’s so much more sound in your TV programmes than you ever knew.

Peak performance

Every sound you hear is made possible through advanced Bose speaker array technology. It reproduces wide-ranging sound, evenly throughout the room from its compact enclosure. And with proprietary digital signal processing, you don’t have to turn the volume up high to understand dialogue. So when you’re watching your show, there’s no need to adjust the volume when a quiet moment suddenly becomes louder.

Hear what you never noticed before

They are your favourite programmes: dramas, sitcoms, and reality TV. Every one of them has a world of sound inside. So take your “must-see” TV to the next level with the Bose Solo TV sound system, and enjoy the crisp, clear dialogue and subtle details you’ve probably never heard before. It will completely change your everyday TV watching.

The Bose Solo system contains all the cables you need to connect the system to your TV and a simple, four-button remote for volume, mute and power.

Style Name: Solo
We have now owned a Bose Solo for two weeks. As described set up is really simple. Choose your cable connection of choice (three are provided, optical, co-axle & RCA). Plug the mains lead in and turn off or fully reduce the volume of the TV speakers. Our TV is a Panasonic TX-L37DT30B. The initial impression was WOW! But this was based on chosen scenes from dramatic blockbusting DVD's such as Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Jurassic Park etc. Gun fire, a tiger tank shaking the ground, T-Rex roaring and thudding by are all absolutely amazing compared to the TV's own speakers.
However the initial excitement has turned a little sour. Beyond these explosive film moments the Bose Solo seems to struggle. The offending area of the sound is the bass. There is simply too much. Great for the moments described above but so, so wrong for general TV watching. The music to Coronation Street, waltz music during Strictly Come Dancing, a male actor with a deep voice, general incident music etc all come with a noticeable booming effect that simply irritates. At first my wife and I were concerned we were being too sensitive and believed we were reacting to sounds we simply weren't used to but several visitors have heard the same booming sound. This boom is even more noticeable when played at lower volume levels, i.e when the kids are in bed.
Unfortunately the unit has no adjustment whatsoever other than volume up, down and mute. Positioning makes no difference at all. Under the TV stand, on the shelf within a wooden TV unit, under the DVD player on another shelf, close to the wall or away from it. The Solo has even been set up in another room with another TV should it be the acoustics of the room causing the problem. But nothing effects the boomy bass. The bass is what it is.

Style Name: Solo
I bought a new Panasonic TV and decided to enhance the sound quality which was adequate but nothing to write home about; this is an issue with most modern slimline TVs.
Because I didn't want or need surround sound I decided on a speaker box. I almost didn't get the Bose Solo because of some of the comments concerning the high bass levels and the lack of EQ adjustment. However I came across the review by AS Howe in September 2013 which mentioned a patch available from the Bose website. I downloaded the patch and ordered the Bose Solo system. (I actually had to purchase it from another UK retailer because of the waiting period with Amazon)
The Solo system arrived and it came with all the connection cables I needed. Setup was the simplest of tasks.
In the first instance I didn't consider it to be particularly bass heavy at all. Secondly, a quick read of the set-up guide revealed that the patch was already installed and the switch to a more neutral EQ setting was as simple as pressing one button.
The sound quality is excellent and a major improvement on the built-in TV speakers.

The Bose Solo is unobtrusive and apart from a small power-on LED there is nothing to flash or distract the eye.

I am so glad I bought this item and my family appreciate the quality too.

However, if you want the big cinematic experience with surround sound and big sub-woofer rumbles etc, don't buy this item because it isn't designed for that. If you just want very good quality sound whilst watching your television, if you don't want to have nests of cables everywhere or if you don't like having to play with numerous menus and sub-menus to carry out a simple task, then this is a product worth considering. It's not the cheapest device out there but it is good quality for the price paid. I would be happy to recommend it to my friends and family.

Style Name: Solo
I had been looking for some time for a compact sound system to improve the dreadful sound from my 40" Sony TV. Not wishing to turn my lounge into 'Mission Control' with banks of speakers and wires everywhere, I just wanted a box that my TV would sit on - sound bars did not fit the bill for me. So for 12 months I have been putting the sound through my Bose Wave unit with a co-ax cable. That was pretty good, but the Solo system with optical cable takes it to another level.
The solo system is perfect for me - its compact, takes up no extra space in my lounge, and the sound quality is brilliant, a huge improvement on the TV speakers.
Although the Bose literature only recommend up to 32" TVs, my 40" Sony is quite OK with it - the TV base is much smaller than the box, and its weight of only 13 Kg is well within the maximum of 20 Kg.

The only downside (which stops me giving it 5 out of 5) is the small remote control. I can't use my TV remote any more to adjust sound (I could when using the Bose Wave box), and there is no on-screen indication of sound level. OK, Bose will sell you a universal remote with this system, but at £55, this is a total rip-off. I can't believe Bose could not have designed this unit to work with any remote - come on Bose, think of your customers for once instead of your 'bottom line'. The unit itself is costly enough and must give Bose a huge profit margin, to expect customers to pay an extra £55 for a universal remote is, quite frankly, an insult - universal remotes can be bought in most supermarkets for a few pounds.

Further evidence that Bose do rip us off on price, is that this unit is on sale for £100 less in the USA($399 = £249). Why do we allow these international electronic giants to rip off the British public in this manner ?
