I DO NOT ADVISE to buy for such money - loss of big money for very limited opportunities.
Installation of the program and its debugging demands contact with the company. Everything is very complicated!
The device doesn't give the right to reproduce desirable music from the computer, is created ONLY for BlueTooth devices. If to establish program on home computer - The program and musical library doesn't give access to musical files directly that it was possible to choose desirable music. From 100% of musical files on the computer can reproduce 20%. The software (program) which is given in the application is executed at very not the convenient, limited and low-quality level, doesn't fulfill elementary requirements of reproduction of music at will and the simplest desires of the buyer. The software defect to the device is felt. It is possible to endure, but not for such money. As it would be desirable an opportunity to listen to favourite CD for the spent money - is absent. Music is reproduced only in limited quantity through library which is created and imposed to the buyer by the program and which isn't convenient for the consumer.
Beauty and design aren't so important as possibilities of the device.
However, I researched various soundbars in order to reach an informed-decision of which soundbar I felt would best fit my personal requirements and lifestyle - both current and future. Working with a certain budget in mind, the two comparably-priced, high-quality soundbars I liked best were the Bose SoundTouch 300 and the Sonos PLAYBAR. However, the Bose SoundTouch 300, in my opinion, takes top honors because it is jam-packed with just about every current feature and technology a person could possibly desire – plus designed to grow with you on into the future. The Sonos lacks 4K video compatibility, lacks Bluetooth connectivity, lacks HDMI inputs/outputs, lacks an Ethernet port, lacks USB connectivity, etc. The Bose, on the other hand, is not lacking in any way – and the sound is unparalleled.
I was a bit concerned when I looked at the first page of the quick-start guide and saw that it said to place the soundbar at least 1-3 feet away from other wireless equipment. That was a concern for me because my new 55” ROKU television is connected via Wi-Fi to my Internet router. However, I experienced no problems upon placement of the soundbar a mere six inches away from my television.
I am very satisfied with the features of the Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar. It is built with every imaginable feature and technology a person could want, plus includes a universal remote that makes switching between various sources a breeze. I love that the soundbar includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, plus offers HDMI inputs/outputs. I really love how easy it is to calibrate the soundbar to your room – you simply put on the ADAPTiQ headphones and the soundbar speaks to you as it fine-tunes the system's sound to your room. One moment I might be using the soundbar for my television and the next moment I'm using the soundbar to listen to streaming music. All done easily with the touch of a button with the included remote. Something I really love about Bose is that they make sophisticated products, but you don't have to be a professional to use their products. My only complaint is minor in nature – included in the box is a quick-start guide that I do not feel is adequate for setup of an elaborate, highly-sophisticated home theater system. However, using the online user manual, setup then becomes quick and easy.
I have several friends who are either high-end audio/video enthusiasts, professional sound engineers and/or recording artists – individuals I know who have high-expectations. I am so impressed with this soundbar that I have already recommended this to many of these friends.
