Comments about Bose® SoundTouch® 130 home theater system:
I bought this product around 1 month ago and it worked beautifully for a few days. Then it suddenly began having sporadic sound loss. I exchanged the original after having called technical support and being informed that the system would need to be serviced and that this is a rare problem. Unfortnately, after hooking up the second system it worked perfectly......for a few days, then the sporadic sound problem began all over again. Seriously ready to throw on the towel. This is far too expensive a product to have such shoddy performance. Supremely disappointed.

Good Sound but there should be a warning on box
There should be a warning on the box of this item that says if you purchase me you should have done more homework to see if the remote is compatible with other peripherals like Dish Network receiver and Your Tv. The remote control instructions say in 3 easy steps set up your tv and other devices and when that doesn't work oh well this just wont work....deal with it

Great for movies
Just purchased this system over the weekend. Love the simplicity of it. Not the best system for music. It sounds ok with music but once again this is most likely for home theatre use with movies. By adding two speaker in the living room the system should sound great with music. Love the app to control different zones. Bought this along with the soundtouch 30 and I love the way the system works. Great job Bose!!!

Excellent Sound, the best sound bar ever!
By Sumant B
Have been using the product for over 4 months now and trust me the sound is simply excellent. Try to go back to your TV sound and you will realise the greatness of this sound bar. I have used the same with 50" FHD TV and have upgraded TV to SUHD Samsung 65" only to enhance my viewing experience and it is so amazing that words can't explain it. The receiver supports 4K videos also. The universal remote could be a little better to support Apple TV full functions and Smart Tv functionalities of Samsung SUHD TV. Mounting bracket cost is a little steep, however the sound ad supports wall and table top set up while adjusting sound throw using AdaptiQ. Overall an excellent product is you want the best sound for your movies and daily routine TV viewing.

major functionality issues for soundtouch family
This is a more a review for the whole soundtouch family. I live in a three story townhouse and bought the 130 for my entertainment center in the basement, the 30 for the living room on the main floor and the 20 for my bedroom upstairs. Individually, they deliver the performance I was looking for, but as a group, there are two primary issues I have identified so far. First, it's great that I can group speakers and listen to the same music on them. The problem is with the home/anchor speaker. As an example, if I am listening to music in my bedroom and want to go downstairs and continue listening to the same music, I can add a speaker in another part of the house, but I cannot turn the speaker in my bedroom off once I get there without interrupting whatever I am streaming because I turned it on first and whatever I am listening to is anchored to that speaker for some reason. This really surprised me. Bose should update the software so that you can easily change the home/anchor speaker and shut off speakers that you aren't listening to (even if they were the original home/anchor speaker). Alternatively, just get rid of the home/anchor speaker functionality altogether once a speaker "group" is created and anchor whatever is streaming to the app. This seems like a no-brainer. Also, it is impossible to group speakers and listen to the same thing on them other than music available through the app. This is probably a criticism of the 130 primarily, at least for my setup. For example, I have my cable, a record player and a blueray hooked up to my 130, but I can't extend the the sound from any of those devices onto other speakers in my house. I don't see why I can't group other speakers with my 130 to listen to a record or the audio from a football game when I go to other rooms. The devices should function more like a unified stereo system for music, or for any other audio input on the home theater systems (e.g. 130 in my case). I probably would not have bought the speakers if I had known these limitations, and may still return them since I have only had them for a week.

I purchased the sound touch 130 and paired it with a new Samsung 65" uhd tv. Setup was very easy and I'm extremely pleased with the high quality sound in my 21' x 16' living room.

Awesome Sound - Great Comfort
I own several of Bose products. So far this is the best. I can easily hear sound and voices which I never heard before. Pros: Best sound ever (for the price and the easiness of the setup. Cons: Initial Setup could have been easier. Remote is old school, not sure why is it so heavy and not illuminated (on request) for the price I paid.

Crystal clear sound
Replaced 5 speaker setup and receiver setup with this smaller and clearer sound system. The 3D effect is not as great. The clarity of voice is much improved. Since this went into living room, the reduction of cables was an added benefit.

Amazing sound!! Poor bluetooth connectivity
I bought this system and it was every easy to setup and sounds awesome. Just after a day or so bluetooth started getting disconnected. It just breaks the connection for a moment and reconnects. It is quite disturbing. I tried all the things mentioned on the web, but the issue still persisted. I returned my sound system. Bluetooth is such a basic feature and still Bose can't make it right. I hope Bose fixes this issue.
