First day review:
This is replacing an 8 year old Bose Cinemate Series I because the new TV didn't have analog out.
The Pros (verses 8 year old Bose system):
The "voice" mode really does pop out the center channel, if characters are trying to talk over an explosion, you can hear what they're saying.
We have an open living room with huge ceilings, both products filled the space well with sound (while a soundbar we tried in between the two systems failed miserably). In general, the sound is better than the old Bose system.
Speakers automatically come on when sound's coming out.
It understood volume up and down from my LG tv remote.
Very sleek and stylish. Speakers can be wall-mounted with included stands (stands are separate with Bose systems).
Short delay between the front speakers coming on and the sub kicking in. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but...
It turns itself off a little quickly, like if you have to hit pause for a couple minutes to get the kids something, it'll turn off, then you hit play and lose a couple seconds of sound as it turns itself on again and re-negotiates with the sub.
That said, for $200 these are some great speakers.
