dg, don't feel too bad...I too purchased a Bose system once (the 3-2-1, which is absolutley the worst of all the crappy Bose systems, IMHO). In my case I was lucky...the DVD player would not work correctly, but I noticed right away that the system lacked "depth" of sound...returned after 1 day! Fool me once, same on you...I also bought a pair of Bose Companion II speakers, shame on ME and those have been in a box in my closet for the last two years and anyone can have them if they come and get them!
If you don't already own a receiver...then a decent soundbar (as suggested above) will sound much better than the Cinemate. If you have a receiver, look at the Polk Monitor series speakers from newegg.com- a really good price on a pretty good speaker.
