Bose Solo boosts your sound, boosts your TV

Single-cabinet speaker system provides a solid stand for your TV to sit on

If you're looking for a way to lift your TV up by a few inches, and if you want better sound quality for your shows and movies, Bose has you covered: its new Solo sound system fits under a compact, high-quality speaker under your screen.

Bose's Doug Lankford says that while TVs have made advancements in displaying images, they haven't in reproducing sound: “TV picture quality has improved over the years, but its audio quality hasn’t.

"“The Bose Solo TV sound system was developed for the love of TV –- for people who don’t want a home theatre system. "

The Solo fits Bose's 'proprietary speaker technology' into a single cabinet, but it's still a stereo speaker — there are two speakers and a bass port on the left and right front sides of the cabinet.

The Bose Solo is 53cm wide, 30cm deep and 7.1cm high — wide and deep enough to accommodate the stands of most current 32-inch to 42-inch flat-screen LCD and plasma TVs.

It's got a coaxial and an optical digital audio input for hooking up modern high-end TVs, and an analog stereo input for connecting mor basic screens. A remote control is included in the Bose Solo's package.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
