First off, delivery was next day. And i thought my tv was good. I`m a little short of the hearing myself, and this machine just does away with doubts imay have had.

After reading a good few of the customer reviews i was put off slightly by some of the negative ones. Especially the coustomer who complained about the base on the product and also on the replacement unit. Needless to say i decided to go ahead and purchase bose solo tv sound system. I am so glad i did, as the unit has perfect sound quality and really is as good as advertised. I actually have the unit on a shelf below the tv and connected to my tv via the satellite system. Would strongly recommend anybody to purchse if they are looking for a good sound system.

This has been a welcome addition to the house. My mum is having difficulty hearing the tv and the volume tends to be about 45 (maximum is 50). The problem seems to be the clarity of the vocal performance combined with the background noise/music – do actors really mutter instead of articulating their words. I have a dread of electrical equipment (i still remember setting up our first video recorder and its awful indecipherable ‘how to’ instructions) so i was incredibly relieved to discover that connection was very simple. This isn’t one of those fancy surround sound home cinema packages but an expansion speaker which adds to the existing speaker(s) which came with your tv. Did it make it easier for my mother to hear what was being said?.Over the weekend she has watched tv without having to have the volume shaking the walls and without saying ‘what did they say’. Here are the specifications for the Bose Solo TV Sound System –:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Wide, even sound throughout the room from Bose speaker array technology
  • More effects, music and dialogue, clearly and naturally with proprietary digital signal processing
  • Single speaker fits neatly under your HDTV, no additional equipment needed
  • Extremely easy setup, with one connection to your TV and one plug to the wall
  • Simple four-button remote with power, mute and volume functions

I think this is a great product. A significant improvement over my sony 40′ standard speakers. I agree with other reviews that the bose really comes into its own during movies and watching mtv, but the clarity of speech during simple tv is a big improvement and the real reason i purchased this unit. This unit was on demo in a local currys and the sound came accross impressively – even though the demo was in open space. I have a large open plan room and was concerned about the sound filling the room but after hearing the demo i knew it would be fine. It really is well built and sits beautifully under the tv. Pros:looks great – much better than soundbars in my opinion. Looks amazing under by black sony tv. Sounds is indeed very good, great clarity with speech in particular in our large room.

Lived up to all expectations of a bose product, but i would advise purchasers that they would receive the full benefit of this product, with an up to date tv, which would have the optimum sound facility. My wife has problems hearing and has benefited from this product, with its all round speaker system. I am not an expert in these matters, but this product must rate very highly in its range.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A very good product
  • Be Very Careful (UPDATED; Now no need to be careful)
  • Excellent sound quality

Fills our small living room with sound. I’m not a techo-junkie by any stretch of the imagination but even i found this very easy to set up and use with my flat screen tv. We have a relatively small living room and the sound quality is perfect for it. I was also impressed that i was able to turn the bass down and enjoyed the directional sound. The instructions include some very easy troubleshooting directions which has been a big bonus.

The sitting room has been gutted, the old amplifier and speakers are gone, tv on the wall. We wanted an unclutterd room and that is what it provided. The sound is a big improvement on the tv, cds can be played through the blu-ray player, we have cable so have digital signals and the radio works well. We even play vinyl through the audio cable. Maybe not how it is supposed to be set up but it works for us and is a neat solution. I am not going to be picky about the finer points of the sound and it is simple. It does the job we bought it for and actually looks quite good.

I spent 2 weeks, every day debating which soundbar to get. Went to currys to listen, watched numerous youtube vidoes and read numerous reviews. An optical lead and a power lead and your away to go, simple to set up. Havent tried connecting everything through the remote, not sure i will bother. I purely bought this for a louder sound with more clarity and extra bass when watching films, playing ps4 or listening to music through an iphone. It does all 3 brilliantly and im very glad i picked this one. I bought mine for £299 but if you aint sure what to buy, then just buy this one cause it will tick all the boxes. I have a samsung ku600 50 inch which too wide to sit ontop of the box, so ive put this under the shelf of the tv unit instead.

Ignore low rated reviews of incorrect item . Firstly some of the one star reviews are not even for this product, they refer to bose first effort in soundbases , the solo, and not the solo 15. The solo 15 is a great product, excellent build and fab sound quality with both films and tv programme speech. Playing music programmes from my sky+ box sends my dog potty trying to work out where the different sounds are coming from. If you want a full cinema surround experience then look for a 5. However, for a compact box that emits a spacial representation across all viewing spectrums then this goes a very good job. The similar priced orbitalsound m9 perhaps does a more impressive presentation, given the small centre box and subwoofe,r but the bose has a more solid build.

Absolutley fantastic should have waited for bluetooth model.
Very easy to connect, just two cables and almost produces a full surround sound with high quality.

Quite expensive but well worth it. Customer service with bose brilliant, had slight problem at beginning but all sorted out very satisfactorily.

It works (unlike the cambridge audio tv5) and works well. You can tell easily if it is turned on or not.

What a brilliant purchase, really easy to set up, takes about two minutes from taking it out of the box to getting a great rich deep sound that fills the room. Remote control can be programmed to operate all your devices and even has bluetooth so you can listen to your favourite tunes off your table or iphone”cant fail with bose, they know how sounds should sound”.

I have had this for a week now but have only been able to use it a couple of times. When i took it out of the box i found it to be quite large and heavy. When i connected it to my tv i had no sound output as my tv only had audio in. I use my pc for most things and to connect it to my pc would have meant buying a new sound card. My pc is now connected via a media box and having watched a couple of films i am now happy that i can hear the dialogue. I find the remote control confusing as there only seems to be a few functions which are volume up and down, bass up and down , and bluetooth. As yet i a have not found anything to control the dialogue output, nor have i found any visual interface. I have not tried any other sound equipment and so i cannot compare this to anything else but i am happy that this is a great improvement on the sound quality compared to the sound from my tv.

Works well and sounds good, however it should do for the high price. Its only marginally better than getting a good pair of computer speakers and plugging then into your tv’s headphone socket.
