For wireless 5.1 and Bose wearing the name of the speaker set, my thoughts would be that you can't get better than this.

Personally, I'm not advanced with speakers. As long as they're good quality, I don't care really...Logitech, Altec Lansing and Creative are the ones I normally would buy/use.

Return the Bose and don't get Bose again. They're overpriced and overrated. I'd look into getting a receiver and some studio speakers.

Hopefully J sees this thread, he knows quite a bit about audio.

I see nothing wrong with the Bose sound system other than the price. They may be pricey, but they produce an excellent product.

If you can afford it, sure. Are you happy with the sound quality of the current set?

Tho, if you get the bose, im sure it would sound good.

but to me for the same amount of money you could maybe get better performance out of a different brand perhaps. Dont go by hear say by others.

Honestly, i find no point in getting that set-up when it seems that you already have a high-end if not pricey Bose set up already.
