I was under the impression the Bose was wireless when I bought it. You are correct that I do not want a full on surround system. I have been looking in the soundbar forum for the past couple of days and have found a few that look like good systems, but I am not at all an expert in all the features. I want to just get the best sound from my tv, ps3, and 3d blue ray player without having all the wires. I appreciate and value your opinion (as others do as well from what I have read) thanks for sharing your thoughts.
[QUOTE=davyo;21294014]I have demoed the Bose Cinemate at home and compared it with a more than a few soundbars,,,,, while dont I feel the Bose sucked I do know you can get a much nicer soundbar for far less money than a Cinemate.
Since you got the Cinemate I'm guessing your not wanting a full on surround system.
Might I suggest the newest Vizio VHT215,,,, it can be had at Costco for around 250.00,,,, it was even on sale a Costco a few days ago for 199.99,,,, I demoed it at home a few weeks ago and was very very impressed with it,,,,, sounded way better than the Bose and had lots of features,,,, HDMI inputs, control over all the audio settings and some other very nice features.
There are also some other very good soundbars out there,,,the Sony CT150 is another nice one,,,,,, go over to the soundbar section of this forum and browse around,,,, there's some really nice options other than the Cinemate.
