    I set mine up per the manual and it sounds great, but Im stumped on the aux inputs. Per the instructions I hooked the audio optical out from my tv to the in put on the bar. I then hooked up the optical audio from my sat box to the aux optical input and hooked up the digital out from my blue ray...

    Just purchased a Bose SR1 soundbar which is still in the box. My TV is going over my fireplace (yes, I know some of you HATE their TV higher than eye-level, but it doesn't bother me...and mounting over the fireplace is ergonomically advantageous in my situation) and I want to mount the TV as...

    As I've aged and technology has progressed, I've become more and more clueless on electronics. So, we have an approx 6 year old 32" Sony Bravia tv (32" is largest size that will fit in my wife's "cabinet") in our small living room area. Tv only has 1 HDMI imput, so we use a splitter between...

    I am trying to calibrate my bose 1sr with the adaptiq. What I don't understand is that it asks me to move to different positions but i am not sure where these 5 positions are supposed to be

    I want a simple, high-quality sound system for my living room TV. I'm mounting my 60" LED above the fireplace, and a soundbar will sit perfectly on the mantle!! I heard the Bose Cinemate in the store and the sound was pretty damn impressive...but so was the price. Quite frankly, it's only a few...

    I am building a media room now and am heavily considering a soundbar only because wiring the room will be a big challenge. I fear that the install costs will be huge and therefore take away from my hardware purchase. Since I would rather spend $ on the equipment and less on install, I am...

    I have unpacked and set up my SR1, but can't work out if it can be set up to Auto on when the tv is turned on? Also should I just rely on the tv's optical pass through "Samsung un55es800" for films or connect the blu ray player to the Aux input? Thanks

    I'm eyeing the 3 bose cinemate (the 1SR and the two speaker ones). I have an odd shaped room and a good conventional stereo for music. I just want better TV sound than I'm getting from the computer speakers I have hooked up to my pioneer monitor. I've heard the fancy surround sound mode of...

    Hi, I am in the process of getting the Bose Cinemate 1 SR sound bar ( i like it and I want to get rid of my Home Theater system). I have a few components like a PS3 , Apple TV and a Cable Box and I am told to connect all of them to my TV using HDMI and then use the optical TV output to the...

    I'm relatively new to AVS, but I haven't been able to find any comparisons of these two soundbars: Bose CineMate 1 SR vs. Definitive Technology SoloCinema XTR. My apologies in advance if I missed a thread. I am aware that most audiophiles find Bose products to be of poor quality / overpriced...

    Hi, I have a Bose soundbar that is controlled by an RF remote. How do I enable IR mode so I can use a universal remote? If I can't enable IR, what universal remotes can I use that use RF to control the soundbar?

    Has anyone had a chance to test these against each other? I've heard the B&W Panorama recently and was impressed (but very pricey), walked into a Bose store and heard the Cinemate 1SR, but the environment wasn't ideal, so it didn't sound all that great as daveyo and others have reviewed, and...

    I see this was just released... http://www.martinlogan.com/motionSer...s/soundbar.php Anyone that's demo'd or owns one please chime in. Seeing how Martin Logan helped develop the builtin soundbar on the Mitsubishi Unisen and the rave reviews that it has received I would expect this to be a...

    Ok,, so I could not resist,, after more than a few Bose 1SR soundbar in store demo's and being very impressed I had to take one home and try it out. Is the Bose a great "sounding" soundbar,,,, YES !!!!!!,,,, the 1SR rocks, the surround effect is really amazing. But here is the bad stuff...

    I'm currently comparing both the Bose 1-SR soundbard and the Yamaha YSP-4100 at home. Notwithstanding the commom complaints against Bose, Bose does make things simple for the average consumer - just set it up and go and the sound is decent and balanced. The YSP seems to give much greater...
