Hear what you’ve been missing

The sleek design of your flat-screen TV is a beautiful feature. Unfortunately, there’s little room left for speakers. That’s why dialogue and quiet passages can be so hard to hear. The Solo 5 TV sound system is an easy solution, with advanced technologies that deliver the clear audio your TV can’t. And dialogue mode makes every word even easier to understand without having to adjust the volume from scene to scene.

Setup couldn’t be easier

In fact, “setup” may be an overstatement. Simply connect the Solo 5 system to your TV with just one audio cable (optical, coaxial or analog, in order of preference). The system automatically knows which one you’ve used. The soundbar is so versatile you can place it almost anywhere, whether it’s in front of the TV, on a shelf, or even mounted to the wall.

Bring out the bass

Dramatic programs. Live concerts. Suspenseful series. There are times you just know you’ll want a little more bass when watching TV. Go ahead—you can adjust the bass control to your liking with the remote control’s bass control button.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Magic but Quite Good Why 5 stars? Because it does exactly what I was looking for. Music sounds good but voices are up front and legible where other soundbar systems I have tried just didn't cut it and some included a sub. I would have to say the 5 star rating is driven by the value that this little guy brings to the game. It most certainly is not an immersive surround sound but it adds quality sounds and great vocals to the mix. If I could I would rate it a 4.5 but I am willing to go 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose Solo 5 Bought the Bose Solo 5 for my desk. Reading the reviews, I was a little worried that the Solo wouldn't offer much and had considered returning the it back the store before even opening the box. However, the Solo is a great desktop speaker that offers a wide range of sound. More that satisfied. +++++
