The Acoustimass 6 Series III home entertainment speaker system puts high-performance sound for music and movies well within reach. Proprietary Bose technology brings lifelike sound to your stereo or home theater components. This 5.1 surround sound system blends easily with your décor, making it an excellent choice for smaller rooms.

Innovative Bose technologies let you hear new details and nuances even in your most-played favorites. The system’s five Virtually Invisible cube speakers deliver vivid and lifelike music and movie performance. Just three inches square, these small speakers faithfully reproduce the clarity and natural sound of a live performance.

Well, of course, the manufacturer is going to wax lyrical about it’s own product so let’s check out what others are saying about the Bose Acoustimass 6 Home Entertainment Speaker System.

Bose Acoustimass 6 Reviews
CNet – 3.5 out of 5
TopTenReviews – 3.75 out of 5
Best Buy – 5 out of 5

An interesting mixed bag with a glowing 5 out of 5 over at Best Buy down to 3.5 at CNet. The CNet review states the price, unusual wiring configuration and large subwoofer are cons. Whilst over at TopTenReviews they criticize the small frequency range of the speakers, which means you may miss out on certain sound effects.

So after all that, are we still impressed? Well, no, we must admit. We don’t mind paying top-dollar for a great system, but it seems Bose may have missed the mark with the Acoustimass 6. Despite the glowing customer reviews we shall give the Acoustimass 6 a big thumbs down.
