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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
