I wanted a new music system and also wanted a decent sound quality for my recently bought 47 inch screen led tv. Now I have noticed this is supposed to be for smaller tv's but I will come to that later. After listening to top of the range sound bars to more basic models, I decided on the Bose because of how it sounded with music which suited my need for a sound system without buying a separate unit. It also sounded fantastic when watching films. Yes ok, Boom Boom sometimes but nothing out of the ordinary and very "cinema" like. If, and I do say , if,,, I were to find this irritating which I have not,,, I would revert to my normal tv sound for news, etc although I have not had need to do that.
As other reviewers say, its no surround cinema 5 speaker sound but its pretty close and I love it. It looks good, sounds fab, it was a dawdle to install and the only gripe is the lack of volume indicator.
Personally, I find it a decent price for a quality product as it works both as a sound system for music and vastly improves my viewing experience on TV.
Back to the size of TV. I was not aware it was more suited to smaller TV.s but it sounds fab with my 47 inch one. I do not sit my TV on it, I have it below on a shelf, unobtrusive but sleek and classy looking. I would certainly recommend!
