THIS NEW SPEAKER IS REAL DEAL
Audio television without having to deal with running wires or many microphones.. But there are various degrees of complexity also in the soundbar world. Some come with a wireless subwoofer, some have surround speakers and many try to make duplication or triple use as an intelligent speaker and a Wi-Fi system. But what if you want your television to sound better, with the least hardware and expense? The response to Bose is the $250 Speaker on $250.
Details and Specification
There are two small figureheads built into the Bose TV Speaker, but the rest of it is completely recycle. You get an optical cable, an optical cable, and a fast start guide with a slender, preinstalled cell battery. Oddly enough though Bose doesn’t have either an HDMI or analog cable, even if the TV Speaker is an input with an ARC and an auxiliary analog input.
It has an elegant, luxury character with its small profile, perforated metal grill and its absolutely smooth ceiling. The plastic shell in matt-black doesn’t focus on itself, so you can focus your entire attention on the sound rather than on the speech as it should.
With its big 23 inches and two inches of hair, the sound system for the Bose Solo 5 TV system could be easy to fit in front of TVs of as little as 32 inks without blocking the base of the screen.
Connect your speaker to your TV with the optical cable supplied or with your own hdmi or analog cable and connect the power cable to the wall. Congrats, you’re done, you’re done.
It detects the connections that you have agreed to use automatically, and so the correct input cannot be picked. You can connect to all three different audio devices, if you like. The catch is that the first time it senses as active the TV Speaker is by default.
HDMI ARC is a great way particularly if your TV does not have an optical port, but since you do not have an HDMI input, you can only give your television a precious HDMI input for the speaker.
Since the TV Speaker supports no HDMI ARC’s high-bandwidth audio formats (such as Dolby Atmos), it might be easy to use an optical link
Dedicated subwoofer output for connecting the 500 or 700 Bose Bass Module via an optional $10 cable.
You get Bluetooth, too. This can be used to stream music on your phone, tablet or computer as a wireless link, but it allows you also to connect the TV speaker as a computer with the Bose smart speaker or Soundbar with the Bose Music application.
In terms of bluetooth, the one thing that I would like to see included in Bose is to be able to fit a pair of Bose wireless headphones, as you do on the smart soundbars of the business.
Link enables your TV to send volume and mute commands to the speaker, all of which are necessary for basic functioning. The TV Speaker is ready for TV operators from Roku, which means that you can monitor every feature of the speaker through on-screen menus and Roku Remote.
Two front left-hand LED indicators to inform you when the speaker is on, muted or using Bluetooth.
The remote control is included, but with its lay-out and enclosed nature, the key volume and silent buttons are easily identified in the dark. The Bluetooth mode is triggered remotely, the speaker is switched into dialog boost mode, and bass is easy to do everything.
THE FEATURES you GET
Excellent 2-channel stereo sound that makes watching TV far more enjoyable. Bose has always been able to coax small speakers into producing big sound, and the TV Speaker is no exception.
There’s no built-in subwoofer and yet the soundbar manages to produce plenty of low-end — especially if you max out the bass adjustment.
The two angled, full-range drivers provide a sense of width and depth that at times surprised me with its realism.
At this price, it would have been nice if Bose gave us the ability to control other aspects of EQ like treble and midrange, but given how well-balanced the speaker is right out of the box, I doubt I would fiddle with them even if I had them.
The dialog mode does exactly what you’d expect, enhancing the upper registers where voices tend to live while deemphasizing the other soundtrack material.
Unlike some other dialog adjustments I’ve tried, which can end up producing a harsh, brittle sound, the Bose TV Speaker simply delivers cleaner, more intelligible speech.
Do you still have to buy that?
Yeah. Well, yes. The Bose TV Speaker is a premium and dead-simple addition for TV audio to make your films sound amazing, even if it’s pricey.
