The bass is not what I expected.

By Bose fan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

Bought it 6 months ago and so far my experience is ok but the 3 star rating is because I was expecting good Bass sound from th Acoustimass. It would be nice to add or pair other Acoustimass to double the bass.

Sound's Great

By Sam

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

One thing you need to remember when buying any Bose product... You are paying for SOUND. Bose allocates resources for the best sound quality, but at the cost of aesthetics and functionality. This system sounds incredible for its class of home entertainment, but expect the mediocre Bose operations. For example.... "Apps" or "Presets" aren't viewable on your TV monitor while in Bluetooth mode.... You need to have your smart phone handy to control Pandora, etc. My Sony Blu-ray player fortunately has the interactive capabilities, so I prefer to use it. Universal Remote not so universal and/or programmable... expect to push a lot of buttons to power on/off devices. Always verify everything has powered off before leaving the room!!! Cannot multitask.... i.e. cannot scan through your TV guide while listening to music... But... It sounds awesome!!! Small price to pay for the sound quality....

Excellent sound, but not AirPlay compatible!

By Tyler

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

I've had this system up and running for several months now, and I am very happy with almost everything about it. The sound is clear and adaptable to different media genres so everything sounds great. It can handle gentle dialogue just as well as pounding action scenes. Especially impressive for the size. It's just a sleek unit. My only major complaint is that it doesn't *quite* fit into my SoundTouch lineup. I have a SoundTouch speaker in nearly every room in my house and I use them everyday. But, since the SoundTouch app doesn't have access to my Apple Music subscription, I very often connect to them directly from iTunes on my laptop using their AirPlay connectivity. The desktop version of iTunes allows me to connect to multiple AirPlay devices at once, so I can play my music straight from iTunes throughout my whole house - EXCEPT the main room, where I have this SoundTouch 120 Home Theater System. This system can only be connected by BlueTooth or by wired connection. This is a HUGE oversight in full-function usability and, had I known that this (much more expensive) SoundTouch unit would lack the primary feature I use in my whole-home system, I would have more seriously reviewed the competition. Adding this feature would absolutely make this a 5-star product. (Bonus points if it can be added via system update!)

Easy, simple installation and instructions.

By Joeking

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

I bought this system a couple days ago and love it. I can barely screw a light bulb in correctly and I wired this system in fifteen minutes including the speaker coordination. I like the way the voice prompts you to move to five different locations in the room to fine tune the system. The sound of this system is excellent. I still have an old Bose wave radio that I bought 30 years ago and it still is in as new condition even though I use it as an alarm clock every day. This system is great and I can't wait to buy a garage speaker for it.

Fantastic sound bar!

By BuckytheBison2005

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

I do not have an ideal room layout for a full 5.1 surround sound system. I was therefore in the market for a sound bar producing sound as close to a 5.1 surround sound system as possible. There are lots of sound bars out there today, many of which get good ratings, so the choice was difficult. But I could not be happier after going with the Bose Soundtouch 120. This system produces incredible, room filling sound, and does a very nice job simulating a true 5.1 surround sound system. With my new Sony 65 inch 4K TV, my living room now feels like a movie theater. I highly recommend this system.

Subwoofer trouble and overall sound quality

By Math

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

Hi, I have an addiction with BOSE products. It is the only brand that I have in my house. When I got this system last year (January 2015) I was very happy especially with the wireless Subwoofer (less cable). But just few days after installing it, I found out that the Subwoofer was losing the sound (kind of cut out) constantly. I called the Technical Support Service and the nice guy on the phone told me that it is because the Subwoofer was to close of my wireless Internet Modem causing a king of interference. So I move the Subwoofer and place it behind the sofa. The issue disappeared for few months and came back. At the time it was still OK for me: just few cuts out time to time. But now it is very frequent and I am just frustrated and disappointed. Also I am not quite having the great sound quality (or same sound quality) as when I tested the same system in the store. I even try the same DVD as in the store but there is a difference in the sound quality. Probably a setting's issue I don't know. I do know that my warranty is over, but I do need that issue to be fixed. I am still a BOSE fan. Thank You.

Great for apartment living. 3.5/5

By Ryan

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 520 Home Theater System:

After doing my homework on sound bars I decided to buy the Bose 120. For apartment living this a great system to buy. Sounds great and I love the app. Things I don't like- sub or accustic mass will always cut out and will drive u crazy. Be sure to order the hard wire for it the day of your purchase. 2nd the Bluetooth cuts out if I'm playing music from iTunes or iPhone. Saying that. Not sure if it's an IOS thing but will hopefully sort that soon. 3rd I think the wireless soundtouch should be built in the receiver instead of having a separate piece. But that's me being critical. Either way. Good value for what u pay. Sounds great in my apartment.
