Bose Acoustimass 5
The Bose Acoustimass 5s are a set of home theater and general home listening speakers.  It has two smaller speakers and then has a large sub woofer.  While I don't own these speakers, I have heard them used a number of times at a friends house for testing out mixes and for general listening.  Like all Bose products, the Acoustimass 5s definitely have the 'Bose' sound as they have certain similar sound qualities to other Bose products which has become a distinct type of sound from them.  The low end on these is proably the best feature as it really covers the whole low end quite well and then some.  While I do like the sound that they have as it is quite rich with a lot of low end, they aren't like all speakers and I would encourage those interested to listen to them and other Brands of speakers like best to see what will suite your taste.  This being said, I think that most people will generally like the sound of the Bose Acoustimass 5s.  They are great for a variety of applications including listening to music or for general home theater and TV use.  The price isn't too bad on these speakers but it is somewhat expensive as it is a Bose product and is what I have come to expect from the company.  While I like them I probably wouldn't buy them as I have studio speakers that I use for listening and doing work on.  These speakers are definitely not suitable for any sort of recording use and should be used strictly for home use.  These are a nice set of speakers but definitely shop around within Bose's catalog as well as other brands to see what works best for you as everyone is different.  The low end on these is proably the best feature as it really covers the whole low end quite well and then some.

AM5 S3 (S3 are in the photo).

I had the habit of listening to this system since 1999 and I could compare the same price range this is the one the best!

Its powerful and startling quality, if listened to in a room big enough!

I do not regret my purchase!

Bose Acoustimass 5
I bought the Bose AM5 first version in 1995. In my small room it was really incredible and in my first show as a young adult. After I switched to more audiophile and we must recognize that the Bose speakers are more spectacular qu'audiophiles: nevertheless, they have incredible qualities including: A monstrous fish, made a flattering, especially ... a life insane. My box eventually give up the ghost because objects that my children have seen fit to introduce it. But my satellite, now coupled with a subwoofer Jamo, are always spotless and sonorisent my home studio and my Mac for years.
In hard-fi, combined with good electronics, I would recommend instead of conventional speakers. For me, the ProAc column associated with an amp Euphya, killing one.

How long have you use it?
I have used for 18 years. I have exchanged against a pair of bose 901 with my son with the listening room was too small.
Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I had a Marantz 300 W pretty huge. very good but too accessible to small hands bbs! (Satellites acoustimat can get high)
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
the most? report quality size, the least ..... uh ....
How do you report qualitprix?
a little pricey, but it is not deu.
With the exprience, you do again this choice? ... no problem!

a small response to some pseudo purists: a speaker does not snore. She eventually reproduce the amp hum after a bad filter. In addition, if the engineers at Bose to say the subwoofer in the corner, they know their product. Do you think the manufacturer is not aware of the effects of area on conventional speakers? When the surpuriste which advises the pioneer has 50,000 Roros .... He drives a what? Rolls or ferari? (If not, it should!)

Bose Acoustimass 5
I use the Bose system for over two years, bought 320 euros used, the system never betrayed me.
DJ and producer in electronic music, often what I associate with my monitoring system (Yamaha HS50M), just to vary the sound sources. Listening to a bit of everything, but especially the house, this system is associated with a Marantz PM 7200 amp in my room of 20m ² (with paneling on the ceiling).

Dry low and deep, if somewhat cold, sharp clear or slightly metallic, that's what I feel. Nevertheless, this system is for those who want to take aps head hi-fi amplifier, we place the cubes, it works.

It goes without saying that the cubes are placed judiciously, as the box. And foix it properly in the room, it is left over. In any case you die before ...

Bose Acoustimass 5
I use this Systm since 1994! It is still for sale. The trs big "work" is the establishment in the ultra prcise pice of use, in addition to the quality of the amp and the player (both ARCAM for me). Trs important to place the subwoofer close to the remoteness or more or less than a block, depending on construction materials, and furniture of the pice. As for the satellites, they will be more space, the better your exact. It is essential to guide diffrent each cube, Manir modulate its direct and indirect. All systems of this type should be thoroughly tested DIFFERENT locations, before placing DEFINITIONS. Whereby, your exact will be extraordinary.
NB: I rdig a first opinion in 2007, and I confirm and complte with the following remarks:
1) the design of this is totally Systm diffrent Systmes of conventional speaker. Its implementation also. The classic high-level speakers (B & W, Cabasse, JR, etc ...) are prefix, and their placement, with respect RULES fairly simple and consistent connection, is ais. The establishment of Systm is longer and requires a lot of cost and detail (I personally recommend not to fix for a month, and try different locations. This is not tedious, to otherwise, and the final result is worth it).
2) default, it is - correct that is your exact trsdcevant, I remember a visit to a specialist in hi-fi Brussels dealer of top brands (those mentioned above and more: Harman-Kardon, Reynault, etc. ...), who showed me a system that BOSE same, he said the greatest difficulty. The problem as I believe that it was possible t the two pairs of satellites on a removable partition straight, and the subwoofer at the bottom of it ... Under these conditions, in fact, your exact excrable silent, but I did not tell him that the bone placement n'tait not consistent with the recommendations of the manufacturer itself. In my opinion, a bad investment is the explanation of the dception many users.
3) no Systm hi-fi does entiret the sound spectrum, and our choice is always subjective. Systm any existing example is capable of reproducing the same sound of an orchestra of 120 musicians, otherwise it is not, and it would be longer needed to go to the concert, which would too bad.

Whereby it is an excellent Systm Systm, capable of fully satisfying the requirements of mlomane I am, or fans of other genres of music; Obviously there are other equally valid or even more, depending on the options and budgets.
But I'm Fully satisfied with it. (Often, I see some reviews from the toughest of people who have not really used the product or cost).

Bose Acoustimass 5
Well, I have this set from that same night, but since every kid that I "rve" to own such hardware, I'm profondment filled. I heard that Bose lacked acute by "audiophiles" of the first order, but it is clear that these are just the teller, and this stuff ragis as I see fit. Good bass, although Submitted, treble the height of my costs, and mdiums. I'm not over "fart fart" than another, but with an amp "shit" pioneer A102, (2 x 30 w rms), my ears perfectly adequate. Superb product, up to my expectations. Go for it, if you hsitez yet, but it is clear that we should not be too demanding with high Fidler fashion, and love the low ProMinent, and his foil! Me j'adhre! It is clear that pay is expensive but it's Bose, and it is a small fee to pay. ;)

This product is not a bose product of a quality clean and beautiful.
if you want something perfect, you will have put 50,000 euros in the tower speakers pioneer home! subwooffer one? 8000 euro Pioneer is the best! (Mostly satellite units do not buy!). You want a 7.1 surround sound better than a cinma? mix your small pioneer products and you sound just perfect!

Bose Acoustimass 5

I use this system since 1999 almost every day, and I can tell you it has not lost in quality! After it is true that for the same price you can find better but after all depends on your available space as compared to his / size I think that there is no better.

Why this choice: At the time I was looking for a powerful small footprint because I had to implement it in "small" piece PA / computer prod (~ 20m no room for my sound system with speakers classical and 2000W box).

My personal opinion: I use the small precision in sound system and not in Hi-Fi The kit is supplied with a 2x200W RMS and a embelisseur sonor Ultraflex Pro EX3200 ( ) . The box is located under the "sofa" and is based on tapered brass feet to insulate the ground. Resustat: I can assure you that the bass are dry and clear. No saturation even at high volume for electronic music / techno. This product has met all my expectations.
