BOSE 321 GS Series II DVD home entertainment system

 

Like some remote theological concept, sometimes the more you search for an explanation for something, the harder it becomes to find. Understanding why American audio R and D guru's BOSE have chosen Ted Rogers' famous catch phrase, 3.2.1, for their...

Look, size, sound, acoustic technology

Price, display size, no recording capacity

Overall, if you've got an overriding desire for quality, design, compact style and £1250 you are itching to be rid of the product bus stops at BOSE. The 3.2.1 Series II GS is another example of why the guys in the lab make the serious sound-lovers...

Bose 3-2-1 GS Series II silver

 

The Bose 3-2-1 Series II's compact design makes it a suitable candidate for bedrooms and small home theaters where center and rear speakers and their associated wires would be too intrusive. The two small, graphite-gray satellite speakers (3.5 by 7.9...

Compact system has integrated progressive-scan DVD player, AM/FM tuner, two satellite speakers, and subwoofer; delivers simulated surround-sound effects without rear speakers; easy to set up and use.

Expensive; no HDMI output; only one A/V input; proprietary cables limit speaker-placement options; lackluster sound with music.

The Bose 3-2-1 Series II DVD system does a surprisingly good surround-sound imitation with just two satellites, but it's overpriced.

Bose 3-2-1 GS series (black) review

 

Leave it to Bose to buck the current fashion that calls for more and more speakers in home theaters. The signal processing built into the company's 3-2-1 Home Entertainment System gives the impression of surround sound from just two small satellites...

Tiny; easy to set up and use; surround-sound effects from just two satellite speakers and a subwoofer.

Overpriced; poor sound imaging; so-so midrange sound.

This system is an option for less critical listeners who don't want speakers littering their living rooms.

Bose 3-2-1 Series II

 

This is a beautifully designed system, with great features for the price.

Quick setup, well written owners guide ; Good quality sound ; Value for money

Not a true surround system ; No HDMI output ; Lack of treble response

Bose 3.2.1 GSX compact home theater system Review and Prices

 

Sure, anyone can put together a fancy home theater system, but leave it to Bose to create something entirely unique. The Bose 3.2.1 GSX takes the acclaimed 3.2.1 GS series a step further by adding a hard drive that can store up to 200 hours of music....

Consumer review by: YanksfanJohn (cnet.com)

Lousy sound, over-hyped product

 

The set up was easy.

Muffled bass, poor highs, not what you would expect from a product of this cost.

Perfect for smaller rooms! Blows most other 5.1 systems

 

Sound bounces off walls and creats a 5.1 speaker experience! I had a 7.2 system and this honestly sounds better using no space at all. just wish it read blu-ray and had more hdmi slots.

Quality sound, great looking speakers, easy to install.

Stupid price tag, ugly home centre, not blu-ray ready.
