Hello, I am glad to give you my opinion on this matter. Now strictly coming of your comment that you are not sound sophisticated is no excuse to deprive you of good sound being introduced into your home. I am an open minded individual, thus giving you an honest non biased opinion, here goes. The Bose 321 system is a solid system for many reasons, but as with all solutions there are drawbacks. Let?s start with the pros. This is an extremely system to setup and operate, there are only 6 cables total that need connecting. The sound is good, this system incorporates a tech called Truspace surround. This enhances surround sound from your movies and TV. Now to be warned this is not on par with the traditional 5.1 surround sound setup, but it comes close. This system also comes with a HDMI out to go to your TV. The media center has a build in DVD player that due to the HDMI connection can upscale regular DVD resolution picture to 1080P if your TV is capable. The cons are that the connectivity options are not that plentiful to justify the price. Also to a discerning listeners ear's, they may not be on par with component based systems (separately bought home entertainment items). Lastly the price can be an obstacle for some people. But overall it is a good solid system. Now there are a ton of different solutions that enter the categories of simplicity and decent sound, such as soundbars. The major down sides of soundbars are that they are not as powerful as the Bose or other solutions, but offer a simple and sleek design (some models). These are produced by Yamaha, Sony, and even the acclaimed Bowers & Wilkins audio makers. I encourage that you research this matter throughouly as so that when you finally buy a product, you are making an informed decision. So overall, do research online and audio stores near you. Hope I was of assistance.
We have a new Toshiba LCD tv and neither my husband nor I can understand the voices from the built in speakers. Is there a simple solution to this problem?
We are an older couple and are not into very sophisticated sounds, so need something only for the TV. I know that Bose is not a favorite here, but, due to their ads, I am aware of the Bose 3-2-1. I think I am looking for something similar.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
