If you are thinking about a pedestal sound bar around the same size as the Bose -have a look at the Zvox ZBase 220. I have a Zvox 555 in my living room (along with a 5.1 system we hardly ever use..) and a Zvox 220 in my den.
I tried a Bose Solo in the den because my 555 had issues with cabinet vibration until I rigged up a foam pad for under the unit and another one under the TV. I’m pretty sure the vibration was coming from the TV or the stand. This took care of the problem but was enough of an aggravation for me to try the Bose when it came time to buy something for the den.
The issue I had with the Bose is that the base is not adjustable at all and it drowns out the dialog. It needed too much volume to get good dialog and the resulting base was just not good. I returned it after a day of use – It just did not work for the space it was in.
The Zvox 220 has none of the vibration issues I experienced with the 555 and it is far more adjustable then the Bose (Bose has volume only control) – The Zvox has adjustable base, (and plenty of it) treble, and surround affect– The Bose has none of that. The Zvox 220 also sounds better then the Solo in the 10x10 space I have it in.
The Zvox has 2 digital inputs and 3 analog inputs. If you use the digital be sure to set your devices to send PCM as the 220 has no DD decoder – I use the analog input because it is stronger and sounds better.
Worth a look – Good luck.
