Customer Reviews for Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System
So I decided to put this Solo 5 on my desktop computer with the S/PDIF optical out, had to buy a sound card that supported optic out.
I am a SiriusXM subscriber, I could not find a music situation I did not like..... Period!
If you are a Hard Base thump-er, don't bother. Go with Bose TV Speaker because it's expandable. But if you like almost anything else, for the price, give it a shot.
I'm 59 years old, I love music! As of this post, I'm listening to Queen on channel 27. Not a bad test in it's self.... I'm all over the board.
Thank you Bose, for letting me afford it.
UNBELIEVABLE sound for music. Now having both, the Sole 5 is
First, it's hard to tell that the sound is better than that in my TV. Then dialogue mode is very disappointing. It makes little difference.
Then there is volume control. I can't seem to get any remote to control the volume on this thing other than the bose remote. So I need to have the TV remote for streaming services, the DVR remote for satellite, and the bose remote to control volume. I would rather just adjust the volume on my TV and have it transmit to my soundbar that adjustment, sadly, I can't make that work. And when I do adjust the volume, there is no visual indicator of volume level so time consuming fine tuning by ear is required. Yes, I talked to Bose about this, and their solutions did little to help. If this had ARC, the problem may be solved.
Overall, this is more of a hassle than it's worth.
The sound and look of this product is very good and it works with the television very well
My disappointment was with the wonderful universal remote, and customer service. I called to get some help with getting the remote control to connect to the television a new one. Should be no problem but it was. I called, had an appointment with a new employee and old employee, probably her boss /manager. They were both very nice. When they could not help me, approximately a half an hour later, I was left with was the feeling of "oh well, I guess it doesn't work sorry....?I'm sure this universal is quite expensive. It's very heavy and I'm sure it works very very well. It should have worked very well on my television. Oddly enough it ended up turning on the TV with the DVD player code and the DVD player code didn't turn on the DVD player but it turned on the TV I can do that now, just not any of the other buttons. Just off and on.
I like the product has a good sound Don't really want another one I just wanted the universal remote to work with it. Signed happy and disappointed
