Rated 5 out of 5 by Duane Bonnell Not Rocket Science
I have a Sharpe LCD TV and it is very easy to set up. Use the Optical cable or go purchase a better one as I did. turn the sound all the way down on your TV and adjust the volume on the Bose. Bass and Treble still need to be adjusted thru your TV, Bass on the remote is just a boost. It's not Imax but its darn close for the price. For better surround sound go to the Bose site and order the wireless rear speakers and be prepared to get blown away. Don't over think the set up on this. it's not Rocket Science
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hankztur NOT as advertised
This is not as easy to set up as they say.
First, if you have a Sharp TV and connect a cable or satellite box by HDMI the optical cable output is designed not to work (oh by the way, despite what the guy in the video says, there is no HDMI port on the Bose so don't think you can use that connection). Two options, one connect a digital cable from the cable box (if available) to the Bose digital input or connect and analog output cable from the TV to the Bose (this is a right and left audio from the TV to a single 3.5mm that plugs into the AUX on the Bose, NOT included with the Bose).
Second, I know my optical output works because i have a DVD connected to the TV with RCA connectors. When i switch inputs to DVD the sound plays through the Optical and it does sound better.
Third, the problem is the Bose will only recognize one input type. So you can't have Optical for the DVD and analog for the TV, it one or the other.
Lastly, (it only took me almost a full day to figure all this out) with the Bose connected with the analog connector everything works, BUT the sound doesn't blow me away. I would think twice about buying this again.

This product is not even close to as advertised. It is difficult to hook up on any model less than 2016.
Rated 1 out of 5 by nookibug Not Worth The Price
For $250 bucks I expected way more from this. No matter what I've tried It's hard to understand what people are saying. I've tried turning the bass all the way down. I've tried the voice setting. I still have to turn it way up to hear people speak, and then everything else is so loud you can't even watch the TV. This is getting returned for a refund.
Rated 1 out of 5 by annette77777 Setting this ups not easy
This \unit is not easy to install. I cant even open the battery for the remote .It also comes with two sets of boxes and two sets of cords. Also needs to be programmed which I cant do because I cant open the battery component on the remote.
Will probably be returning this unless someone from boise can come out and install this.
The video shown on this product is rather deceptive in my opinion,.
