Inputs and Outputs
Overview: The Bose CineMate GS Series II digital home
theater speaker system provides high-quality home theater sound so you get more
from your HDTV experience. The Bose CineMate GS Series II digital home theater
speaker system makes it easy to enjoy the power of a home theater experience
using your TV and video components, like a DVD or Blu-ray player and Satellite
receiver. Just two front speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module bring movies
and music to life via proprietary TrueSpace technology. The CineMate GS Series
II offers quick and easy connections because there are no rear or center
speakers, eliminating much of the wiring of traditional 5-speaker systems. A
universal infrared remote control operates the Bose system and most devices
attached to your television.
Proprietary TrueSpace Digital Processing Circuitry:
The Bose CineMate GS Series II digital home
theater speaker system utilizes proprietary TrueSpace digital processing
circuitry to deliver a spacious, multichannel sound experience with
strong center imaging from just two visible speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass
Videostage 5 Decoding and Post-Processing Circuitry:
Proprietary Videostage 5
decoding and post-processing circuitry, combined with digital 5.1

experience from practically any source: DVDs, videocassettes, stereo CDs, even
older mono TV shows and movies.
Digital 5.1 Decoding: The Bose CineMate GS Series II features an optical digital input and provides digital 5.1 decoding for improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS, or HDTV.

Interface Module: The Interface Module is a compact enclosure
that houses two LED indicators and connectors for audio input (stereo RCA and
optical), and receives IR commands for the speaker system. The Interface Module connects directly to your
TV while providing status information (on/off) for your speaker system.
Note: You can use either the module's stereo RCA
analog audio input or optical digital audio input, but not both.
Gemstone Speaker Array Design: The articulated
Gemstone Speaker Array design combines with TrueSpace surround digital processing
circuitry to deliver extraordinary sound. Each speaker has two precisely angled
drivers inside the ported enclosure. The two speakers are designed to work in
concert with Bose's proprietary signal processing to deliver a multi-channel
presentation from just two visible speakers. The result is a home theater
experience with a broad, spacious soundstage and strong center imaging.

female threaded insert on the back, allowing the speaker to be mounted using an
optional Bose wall/ceiling bracket, universal floor stand, or universal table
stand. Using the supplied rubber feet, the speaker arrays can be placed on any
Acoustimass Module: The Acoustimass module works in concert with the small speakers to deliver the full
range of sound. The patented Bose design produces low frequencies for all
channels with no audible distortion. When the module is tucked behind a curtain
or chair, all of the sound seems to come directly from the two arrays.
Bass Control Knob: The bass control knob located on the
rear of the Acoustimass module allows you to change the bass level of the Bose
