Comparison with another brand

It is actually a difficult task to find a product that is exactly comparable to Bose’s CineMate 15 Home Theater Speaker System as most systems come with multiple speakers. Nonetheless, the Bose will be compared to the Enclave Audio CineHome HD 5.1 Wireless Audio Home Theater System.

It is similar to the Bose system because it has a subwoofer. However, the Bose’s system comes with two speakers, but this set comes with six independent speakers that together provide a surround sound experience to listeners. The similarities in the speaker systems end there.

The Enclave speakers are wireless and enable cost savings as there is no need for cables or audio-visual receivers running to the individual speakers. The speaker also boasts three HDMI inputs that allow you to connect your cable box, gaming consoles, DVD-Blu Ray player, and other devices.

Additionally, the technology is compatible with most media devices. You can easily connect your phone to the surround sound system by using Bluetooth or using a 3.5mm jack. The Bose CineMate speaker system lacks both HDMI and Bluetooth connectivity which will significantly help to reduce the visible cabling and wiring.

The Verdict

When looking for a sound system, you will obviously want to get the best value for your money. Bose is a brand that has been around for years, and they are trusted for the quality of items that they manufacture. However, this product though described as their simplest speaker set is probably not the best value for money.

The speaker set up lacks HDMI as well as Bluetooth connectivity, a staple that most setups are expected to have. Though, Bose may argue that their speaker system is only intended to be used for sound output and not audio-visual output. The speaker may also be a bit too expensive.

However, despite not having popular methods of connectivity, the speaker offers a rich listening experience courtesy of its soundbar and bass. It also comes with a universal remote that allows you to control your media devices.

The Bose speaker system may be more suitable for persons who will not use Bluetooth or HDMI connections, and those who prefer a sound system with an uncomplicated setup. However, if you prefer something that will give you more value for your money, you will probably want to invest in a sound set up that can connect to all your media devices.
