4.0 out of 5 stars Sound wise, great for a budget speaker system, cable management not so hot, 13 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boston Acoutics Soundware XS 5.1 Speaker Package - Glossy White (Electronics)
If you're looking at a budget speaker system, the Boston XS is hard to beat. Having owned speaker systems from low to the very high end, I was mightily impressed by the sound. The treble is clean and crisp, and the sub fills in nicely giving a decent weight to the sound. When it gets really low of course it all gets a bit muddy, and the mid-range struggles as you'd expect, but on the whole a cracking sound for the price which belies the diminutive stature of these cubes.

The speakers are suitably solid and look nice in a gloss white finish, whilst the sub is only slightly disappointing in a satin white finish. I say slightly disappointing as a gloss white sub would really complete the package, but this is a cheap as chips system so you can't really complain.

The only real issue for me was with cable management. In my opinion they should have incorporated speaker routing into the little brackets, and it doesn't really feel well thought out. The binding posts are tiny as well, so it's a challenge fitting anything other than the smallest of speaker cables (I managed 2.5mm but you're better off using 1.5mm thick cable).

On the whole, and unless you have a really big room, these get a recommended from me :)
