speaker system that brings noticeably better sound to your flat-panel
television. It's engineered to help clearly reproduce everything from dialogue,
music, to sound effects. The Bose Solo 5 incorporates TrueSpace technology,
Videostage circuitry and a Dialogue mode to get the most enjoyment from this
one-piece soundbar speaker system.
- TrueSpace Technology: Bose TrueSpace technology creates a
simulated surround-sound experience from the soundbar speaker's two drivers.
- Videostage Circuitry: TrueSpace technology works in unison with
Bose Videostage decoding circuitry to deliver a lifelike, spacious
multi-channel sound experience from almost any source.
- Dialogue Mode: Dialogue mode makes every word even easier to
understand without having to adjust the volume from scene-to-scene. Dialogue
mode is also great for news programs and talk shows.

fitted with two digital inputs (optical/coaxial) and one stereo minijack input

from the included remote control. Song/artist information will still be viewed
on your Bluetooth device. You can pair up to 8 devices and keep 2 devices
connected for easy switching between devices.

not support all features when used with the Bose Solo 5.

your liking from the included remote control.
