If you love watching TV, then you will realize a dramatic difference when you add Bose Solo TV Sound System to bring more depth and detail to your listening pleasure. The majority of flat screen TVs internal speakers do not reproduce the intended sound.
You’ll notice that the Bose Solo TV Sound System is uncomplicated to set up. For the most part, all you have to do is plug it into your TV’s audio port and a power outlet and it is ready to go to work. No extra space is required for it since the TV can be placed right on top of it. The only thing lacking with the sound is some of the bass is lost. This doesn’t make much difference though, unless you are listening to music or action movies. You’ll get crisper, clearer sound than would be possible with your TVs speakers alone.
There are many options and configurations available on the HT-S5500 Onkyo Home Theater and more settings than ever before. This is a 7.1 channel home entertainment system with all the quality you have come to expect with Onkyo. You get all the flexibility and power you need for the extra channels of Pro Logic, IIz, and Dolby. Music and games are more lifelike with more realistic feel.
Even though everything you need to set up the Onkyo HT-S5500 Home Theater comes with it, and there are no proprietary connections, there are still some problems that exist with this system. If you use a PS3, you may find that this system requires an update to make it function better. It does not support an Android and the wires are much too small. There’s more to it as well.
Customer service leaves a lot to be desired with this company, and you may have the same troubles as many others have had with this one not powering on and producing sound the way it should. They expect you to pay for shipping if it needs repair, but don’t forget to ask to talk with a manager because that may get you free shipping. Sending a product back to the manufacturer when it does not work correctly should not cost you extra.
You might want to take a look at the Boston Acoustics TVee Model 25 Sound System when you want to give a sound bar a try to enhance your TVs sound. For most TVs, this is just a plug-and-play solution that is sure to boost its audio. There are no separate amplifiers or receivers required for this system to work.
Just like with other products similar to this one, you should be aware of some of the problems that exist. Programming is sometimes complicated because you need to depress the power and volume up buttons at the same time to get this to work. This system is quite touchy and there are additional problems with using the remote. One hint is that it is not going to work anywhere on the right side of the soundbar and grill.
