      It's a BOSE !!!!

      First let me say I've ALWAYS wanted to own a BOSE system. I've read all the reviews and I could care less about the reviews that say BOSE is made cheap and is overpriced. I only care about the most important thing; THE SOUND !!! If that means the speakers aren't made like other brands then WHO CARES?? It can be made out of cat litter for all I care; as long as it sounds amazing that's great for me. I can tell you I was blown away by this system. I bought the package deal that came with an Onkyo 5.1 receiver and the Acoustimas 10 series 5 speaker system. I'm not an audiophile perfectionist but I still want my music, games and movies to sound amazing AND IT DOES. If you are looking for a system that is not only aesthetically pleasing and is able to accurately reproduce the full spectrum of sounds then look no further, BOSE HAS IT ALL. The second concern people have is the price of BOSE systems. Yes, they are costly and yes you can probably get a cheaper system with more speakers and different capabilities HOWEVER NO AUDIO MANUFACTURER CAN BEAT A BOSE WARRANTY AND OVERALL SUPPORT!! NOBODY. I have around 8 BOSE products and have had issues with a couple of them. BOSE REPLACED BOTH at no cost to me!! Yes, BOSE is expensive but you get the whole company that stands behind their products 200%. I only have two complaints. First, the wires that come with the system end up in a bunched up pile behind my entertainment system and it just looks messy. Second, I want to buy additional individual speakers. I want to expand my system to 7.1 or 7.2 and BOSE doesn't sell individual satellite speakers. I was told I'd have to buy an entirely new system just to get two Accoustimas satellite speakers that I'd need so they will match the rest of the system because BOSE doesn't offer anything above a 5.1 system. They use to offer a 6.1 surround system but they don't anymore. The bottom line is the BOSE Accoustimas 10 Series 5 system sounds amazing especially for the speaker size. No, they aren't cheap, but aside from sounding awesome you get peace of mind knowing that if something ever goes wrong with your BOSE home theater investment you've got the whole company that stands behind their product(s) to make things right. THAT you can't put a price on. BUY IT!!! You'll be smarter if you do!!

      Not what you would hope for

      I knew of Bose before we purchased this set and am well versed in audio having installed it for more than 15 years. We were looking to get a small foot print speaker system for theater and music listening in the living room. When you go to the store to listen to this system they only have it set up as a theater and were not able to let us here music through it at all. We have owned it now for about a year and have never been able to get satisfactory sound from it. It works ok for theater but music listening is horrible. There are pieces of the music that sound mono or are in your face while other portions are distorted. It lacks high sounds and throws mid sounds offensively in your face. It also varies from type of music greatly! any rock music sounds bland while anything jazzy sounds good. speaker placement is very much an issue as well. We have spent hours moving the front around to try for better sound. I have Polk bookshelf that sound better at a quarter the cost. After having tried for a while we are now getting rid of the set at a loss and going back to a tower system. The music quality from the speakers is just too low. The direct reflecting Bose makes it too difficult to place for good sound and causes distortions issues and missing parts of the music. I would not recomend this system. There are better at less a price. The wiring for them is also a I confidence. You have to run all of your speaker wires for every channel into the sub and then back out of the sub to the speakers. They give you wire but you have huge bundles of wire behind everything due to all the extra connections needed.

      Nice sound system

      I've had a bose theater system for 20 years and loved it. When it came time to replace it of course I bought another bose system. Naturally the sound is great, but I just couldn't give it a higher rating because unlike my previous system, bose does not make ceiling mounting backets for this system. In fact, only way to set the speakers up is to buy stands to place them on or buy flat wall mounting brackets. Considering where the speakers need to be placed in my livingroom, stands are out of the question. And if you read all of the instructions provided with this system, you'll find that flat wall mounts will not allow you to rotate the speakers for optium performance of the speakers. So the sound just bounces off whatever it is facing and that creates an inbalance in the sounds you are listening to. To correct this problem I had to improvise. Using my old 20 UB ceiling mounts, I drilled a hole in a small board (big enough to put the screw from the ceiling mount through), screwed the board to the bracket, and zip tied the new speakers to the board. I pray it holds... Now I can move and adjust the speakers to the desired locations within the room to get the best sound possible. Now they sound like they are made to sound. By the way, you can still buy the 20 UB ceiling mounts. Just be warned that you will have to make adjustments to make them work for this system.

      I had my house pre-wired for surround sound which had already cost a nice little amount and when I got these speakers home I learned from the guy installing them I needed a special converter to make these fit the wires that had been preinstalled. So I ordered those and had the guy come back out to learn that the mounts best buy had suggested for me didn't work with these speakers, so had to run out and buy new ones. Cost me extra because I kept having to have the guy come back out. But when all was said and done and we got the speakers working, I was very pleased with the quality. Just make sure you have the hardware you need to go along with them!

      This is my second bose home theater system I purchased. The first on lasted more than 20 years. When I finally stopped working correctly my husband said lets not spend the extra money buying another bose system, so instead we pruchased a samsung system. Well it only lasted 1 1/2 years and I didn't buy the extra warranty for it so I was once again looking for a replacement. That's when I decided to go back to bose. This system has great sound quality and works like it is suppose to work. I get great surrond sound just like the theater has. Got to LOVE it I'm sure it will last 20 years like the last one did.

      Having had an older home theater system already in place I was expecting a significant difference. It didn't meet my expectations for a Bose product. You have to use Bose brackets, stands, and mounts to hang them. The biggest issue we came across was the wiring. If you have pre wiring in your home you can't use this system unless you patch in the wiring that comes with it. Doing so has a negative effect on sound. No hard wire installation. On a positive, the Best Buy salesman was patient and went the extra mile for my sale. The geek squad showed the same professionalism during an install. Very knowledgeable.

      Excellent System for the Money

      After researching several speaker systems, I decided to go with the Bose system, primarily because I already had a Lifestyle V20 system I was replacing. I did not want to go with the entire Bose entertainment system this time because there isn't much value for the money. I combined this system with a Yamaha Aventage AV receiver and I could not be happier with the system. My only issue was, the Bose speakers are somewhat proprietary. Even though I previously had Bose speakers mounted, the ends of the speaker wire were different and so was the mounting bracket. Other than that, no issues.

      I purchased the bose acoustimass 10 series V with high expectations that the system will perform good, and it did better than good! I paired it with a Denon 4K 1295w 7.2 channel amp. And it rocks the house after fine tuning the system. A few people have had bad reviews on it saying it lacked power,but it really comes down to what receiver you use for this system to get the best performance out of these speakers . And let me tell you,I'm completely satisfied with my purchase.
