The Bose Solo TV Sound System is designed to be placed underneath your TV, and, once connected, it is to provide what should be a superior sound to that of your TV’s inbuilt speakers.
As is alway the case with Bose, there’s little in the way of audio specs given. The Solo TV Sound System, says Bose, “delivers detailed, wide, even sound using proprietary Bose digital signal processing and Bose speaker array technology”. That’s Bose saying that there are multiple speakers inside, and circuitry is used to have the speakers mimic a surround sound experience, in the manner of soundbar speaker systems.
The Bose sound system box itself is 7.6 x 52.7 x 31.1 cm (H x W x D), and weighs 4.6 kg. It has been designed to fit underneath flatscreen TVs of between 20 and 42 inch screens. Even with those restrictions, Bose advise that the TV must not hang over the box. In such case, the Solo TV should be placed near the TV.
On the back, are the following connections:
Optical audio input (digital)
Coaxial input (digital)
R-L audio input (analog)
An optical digital audio and analog stereo audio cable is included in the box, as is a remote control.
The Bose Solo TV Sound System went on sale on August 30, and has an RRP of $549.
