Since no feedback. I went ahead and bought bose 300 to compare (no sub and surround). some songs sounded better on Vizio and others on Bose. For e.g. Justin Lake Timberlake Sexy back sound awful on Vizio but Katie Perries Roar sounded better on Vizio. I have a list of songs which sounded better on Bose vs Vizio. The only slight edge I gave to bose is even when bose lost to Vizio on many songs, it did not feel as terrible when Vizio lost to bose. Vizio's only issue it lost in few songs where i noticed kind of volume going up and down, not sure if it is a setting or the speaker could not deliver certain sound. Most songs are pretty close too..Movie beats bose especially without bose sub. In a day, I was able to overcome the hype of bose (I have been bose fan) and realized that paying higher does not always give the best. Bose is headed for return. I got 29 more days in case if anyone would like to compare.
Comparison is done with $170 full package 36inch vizio vs Bose soundbar.
