The Bose® CineMate® GS II speaker system is the easiest way to enjoy Bose 2.1-channel home theater performance and bring out the full audio potential of your HDTV. Proprietary TrueSpace® technology enables two Gemstone® speakers and an Acoustimass® module to deliver compelling sound for movies, games, sports and more. The system easily connects directly to your TV, avoiding the need to disconnect other sources. And with no rear speakers, there's no wiring to the back of your room. A programmable universal remote control simplifies operation of other connected sources.
A sound upgrade for your home theater needs
The CineMate GS II system represents a quality home theater upgrade to complement your HDTV. Two powerful Gemstone speakers flank your TV and put you in the middle of dramatic home theater sound. You'll experience a level of realism that simply cannot be matched by TV speakers alone.
A hideaway Acoustimass module provides the low frequency effects that make movies and games so compelling. It even includes dedicated bass control. Place the module in a corner or out of view--all the sound seems to come from the compact speakers. Together, the speakers and Acoustimass module provide full depth and clarity for your music, too.
Setting up a CineMate GS II system is a quick exercise, with only a few wires to connect. It hooks up directly to your TV with minimal—if any—disruption to existing component connections. A small interface module houses your audio input from the TV and displays on/off status for your system. And it's all controlled with a programmable universal remote that works seamlessly with most video components attached to your television.

The one thing I didn't figure out was how to get the DVR 30-sec skip function to work on the included remote. This was disappointing. If someone knows please reply. So I'm still using my Logitech Harmony Ultimate because it programmed the 30-second skip with zero effort on my part.
When I saw an ad for the Bose Solo for $359, I thought that this may be a viable solution. I already have a nice dolby 5.1 surround sound system, but it's only good for watching movies since the sound has to be turned up so loud to hear anything. The Bose Solo marketing literature says that it provides clarity at normal volumes, so my interest was piqued.
As turned out though, my 46" TV base is too large for the Solo, so I stepped up to the Cinemate GS II for $539. I could have gotten the first generation Cinemate for less, but all of the reviews said to go with the GS (to get the Gemstone speakers and the multi-function universal remote). I also could have purchased a decent sound bar from Pioneer or Panasonic for a lot less, but I wasn't interested in replacing my TV speakers with one long speaker and a sub-woofer. Also not interested in faux surround sound, more bass, or gimmicks. I just want to be able to hear the stinking dialog and perhaps hear other things in the soundtrack that I can't hear out of my TV speakers.
Since Bose is never on sale and I know they'd take them back if I didn't like them, went ahead and ordered the unit a week before Christmas with the free shipping option. Amazon's initial confirmation said they'd arrive within a week, but they actually arrived within two days of ordering.
Installation was a snap and I replaced my Verizon Fios remote with the universal remote and couldn't be more pleased. The first codes I tried worked my Samsung TV and the Verizon DVR. Remote works great on the DVR portion too. Can skip forward and back, but can also now step in slow motion forward or backward as well which I couldn't do with the Fios remote.
Only reason this product doesn't get five stars is that it isn't under $400. Oh, and by the way, this product provides excellent clarity at normal TV volumes. Can hear the dialog now while enjoying the background music instead of cursing it.
