On 1/24/2015 I bought a Samsung 65” LED Curved 4K Ultra HD TV. The cost of the TV was $2,300. You would think the sound system would be fantastic, it wasn’t. On 1/27/2015 I bought a Bose CineMate 15 Home Theater System. The folks at Best Buy were not sure if the HDMI digital optical cable came with the Bose CineMate 15 system until we opened the box. It was short, so I upgraded to the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9'.
I never used the stock cables from Bose, so I cannot rate the difference. I can say the Bose CineMate 15 system with AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9' cables sound much better than the Samsung 65” LED HD TV stock speakers. It seems to make sense when buying a premium HD TV to upgrade the sound system, thus the cables to then equal the HD TV viewing and sound experience. Is this the right thing to do? The choice is up to you. At least we as consumers have the option.
Yes, I am satisfied with all my purchases leading up to the AudioQuest Forest OptiLink 4.9' cables. I would do it all over again if I had a “do over.” The sound provided today is “Super Fantastic.” The HD TV viewing and sound experience is complete.
