I have the Bose Cinemate and I'm happy with it. It's the only sound I have from my TV. Now, I'm not a big sound guy but, I think these two speakers provide clear, crisp and plenty of sound. I believe they're designed to give off somewhat of a surround sound feeling but, the way my house is set up, I really don't think I get the full potential of that function. None the less, I do recommend them.
