Bose Acoustimass 5 Speaker System
My husband purchased the Bose accoustimass 5 for me for Christmas back in 1990. It was brand new technology back then and the best set up on the market. We still have and use this set up daily. Its been thru 2 teenagers cranking things up along with our use. The speakers sound as good today, 24 years later, as they did brand new!!! I would absolutely recommend Bose to anyone. Might be expensive, but trust me, you will never have to replace them!!
easy to connect, cheap, more than expected, very good sound
Misleading and terrible
I've been at it two days attempting to connect these speakers to the onkyo 727 receiver with no luck. I've at other come in and connect these speakers. The sub has no sound but the cubes are working. I knew you needed the receiver but to connect to an onkyo reciever is impossible. Not worth the money. Shipping back TOMORROW. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS. Other wise was surprised how quickly qvc delivered them though.
I did not realize this product needed to be hooked to a receiver. I was able to return it without any problems.
Amazing sound. Best system I've ever bought. Wish I had bought Bose speakers sooner!
Very disappointed with the inability to adjust the bass. After receiving the product and then having to purchase a receiver.. Not what I expected from Bose at all. I am happy with the sound from the smaller speakers, however the power and lack of bass I will be much more aware when purchasing a sound system again. I will be returning this product.
better than i thought
I brought this for my husband as a anniversay gift, He loves it,, he put on the headphones and away he goes with the music..,,the only drawback is you need a equalizer,, they dont tell u this,, and being a woman i didnt know this,,,but all in all its a great gift
I got this for my husband. He loves it and it sounds amazing. The only draw back is this is not the adjustable sub-woofer (for the bass enthusiast.) Don't get me wrong it still sounds amazing but wanted to throw that out there.
STILL AMAZED AT THE SOUND THIS SYSTEM PUTS OUT
I purchased this sound system back in 1998 at almost 3x the price. After 15 years, I am continually in awe everytime I use it. To this day, I can play retro albums & CD's such as Pink Floyds infamous "Dark Side of the Moon" or the Beatles "Abbey Road" ,"Revolution" and the like and hear things I never heard before, even though they were played a zillion times in the past on huge high end speakes. I listen to many genres of music from classical to rap, and this system is great for everything. The sound quality is fantastic ,be it on a high or low setting. That's the true test of a great speaker. You'll still hear every instrument no matter what, w/o any distortion. Although I would love to replace my bulky component system for the BOSE tabletop (also fantastic), I just can't rid myself of this sound system. It would also mean giving up a high end B & O turntable purchased in '86 for my vinyl collection. I began using BOSE speakers back in the day when they were big (even then, smaller than their ginormous peers). I'm sure you can probably still purchase the brackets to hang these in the corners near your ceiling should you prefer. Either way, they are so tiny, you barely notice them.
If you are on the fence, I wouldn't pass these up at this UNBELIEVABLE PRICE!!!
*Should you prefer one of the small BOSE tabletops, no worries there either. I was skeptical when my parents purchased one and could not believe my ears when they played it for me. I was shocked to hear every instrument so crisp and clear on this tiny unit. Music filled the entire room and them some. It sounded as if they hired an orchestra. They are purchasing one fo me as a birthday gift as I have 'wanted one for my bedroom since I heard theirs.
**This is a great gift for anyone who loves and appreciates music.
small cubes pack a big punch
I paired this system up with a pair of Bose 201s for my rear channel which made a great home theatre system. I was really impressed with the quality of the cubes and sub. You really can't go wrong with Bose speakers.
I RECOMMEND THIS IT WAS NICE TO HAVE I LOVE IT THE SPEAKERS ARE NICE I HAVE TO HERE IT
Bose Acoustimass 5 speaker system
I have had my speakers for two years and they work great. As a dj I used these as primary front end speakers for my sound system and they performed well, I also used my 301 direct reflecting speakers in the rear to surround the area with the best sound possibele. I am very fussy when it comes to my audio almost to the point of ridiculous.and all I use is Bose equipment and speakers Nothing else will satisfy my critical ear.
These are outstanding speakers and i would recommend that they are not put on a receiver with 250 watts or more per channel. NOTE IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THEY BE CONNECTED TO AN AMPLIFIER OR RECEIVER WITH 100 TO 150 WATTS PER CHANNEL.
