    Default Bose 3-2-1 System

    Hey guys...how are the virtual surround systems like the Sony DREAM system and the Bose 3-2-1 system. I like th eidea of less cords and am not a super audiophile. I know th lifestyle systems are supposed to be great. I am just wondering about the price (like 800 for the 3-2-1 and like 500 for the Sony Dream SYstem)

    I just bought the ''GSX'' model off e-bay, which has the built in hard drive and am very happy with the sound. I use it with my 360 and to mainly to watch movies.

    My friends were all blown away with how loud the two little speakers produce.

    As for the surround sound with no speakers in the rear, it does a good job. Doesn't sound like 100% surround but darn close.

    I have the original 3-2-1 (over 5 years old) and the thing still rocks!

    It's a great system.

    i didn't want to be mean, but yeah. i think you can find some good choices for less money that will perform just as good if not better. unless you are totally set on that system.

    I have the Bose Lifestyle 48.....I am very happy with it. I think most any Sony products are very well produced. I think either the Sony or the Bose 3 2 1 would be fine.

    Yeah... I have their home theater speakers (bought them used from a co-worker 5 years ago at 1/3 price), and it's very underwhelming, just never got around to changing them.

    my recommendations would have people shooting for the moon, and that just isn't always the most feasible... and considering most of us view in either small or medium (on the small side) rooms and stereo furniture can become a bit of a nuisance, i suggest going on Gallo satellites. but instead of using their sub (which is passive), i'd go wtih a nice (and small) powered sub from like Velodyne.

    i don't think i'd go any cheaper than that.

    "No highs, no lows, it must be Bose." - common saying amongst audiophiles.

    For $800, I'm certain you can do a whole lot better. I'll second Gescom's recommendations.
