Bose Solo

 

Bose boosts TV sound with a simple if overpriced speaker base

Solid sound quality, Easy to install and use, Sturdy, discreet design

Limited features for the money, Expensive, Optical input access

Bose Solo review

 

A boost for TV sound, but it's not enough

Sounds better than the average flatscreen ; Decent sense of scale

Limited inputs ; Price ; Dialogue sounds hard and compressed ; Bass sounds loose and detached

The Bose brings a sense of scale greater than your average TV, but everywhere else it sounds just average

Bose Solo TV Sound System review

 

The Bose Solo is more of a soundbox than a soundbar, having been designed by Bose to sit underneath your screen rather than in front of it. This cunning approach, where the TV stand is plonked on top of the unit, eliminates the problem of the soundbar...

Improved audio over your TV, but limited inputs aren't ideal for set-top boxes

Bose Solo review - lack of inputs makes Solo and average soundbar

 

Unlike traditional soundbars, the Bose Solo is housed in in large flat box designed to sit underneath your TV rather than in front of it. See all digital home reviews.

The Bose Solo will certainly provide better sound than your flat TV. However, it can do little else thanks to a lack of inputs. Add in the non-adjustable sound and a reasonably high price and it's an average soundbar.

Bose Solo sound bar sports stellar design, but just adequate sonics

 

The ; is among the best-looking sound bars available, with a clutter-free pedestal design. The included remote is excellent and dead simple to use. Its sound quality is unambiguously better than a TV's built-in speakers, especially for movies and TV...

The Solo falls short of the sound quality of both other pedestal sound bars and traditional sound bars that include a wireless subwoofer. It lacks a front-panel display, so you won't know if its volume level is maxed out or not. And the Solo's small...

Although its sonic talents are comparatively modest, the Bose Solo is an exceedingly handsome and easy-to-use sound bar.

Bose Solo review

 

Bose basically created the "lifestyle" home audio category, so it's surprising the company has been slow to embrace sound bars. Nevertheless, the Bose Solo ($400 street) is a strong offering in the booming sound bar market. It utilizes a pedestal...

Bose Solo TV Sound System Review

 

In the heyday of CRT picture tube technology, owning a 29" TV set was a status symbol in itself. These bulky displays sported surprisingly well-made inbuilt speakers, while some even featured onboard subwoofers. Unfortunately, sound in TV sets was...

Its 3" height affords a slim, low-profile silhouette that blends in with most TV sets. However, a width and depth of 20.75" x 12.25" means the TV has to be placed on top of the soundbar. This restricts the maximum size of the TV set to 42", and you're...

Bose Solo 5 Review

 

In general, we have been blown away by the Bose products we've tested, but the Solo 5 was a rare exception. It is not bad by any means, just not the high...

The Bose Solo 5 is a decent soundbar at a fairly low price. However, there are some better low budget options available (namely the ), making this a poor choice for most users.

Expert Review

 

Wide and even sound, easy to set up, along with user friendly operation.

Comes with a heavy price tag.

Bose Solo TV Sound Home System works like a magic for those holding a quest for ultimate sound clarity from their flat TV without any compromise or worrying about the price tag.
