3 Reasons For for Choosing the Bose Solo 5

Handheld Remote Control

The Bose Solo 5 has a handheld remote control, and so do the LG SK1, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Sonos Beam, but the Razer Leviathan does not. More ...

'Handheld Remote Control' denotes whether the soundbar comes with a remote to control the device from afar.

A remote control makes it far easier and more convenient to use the soundbar - you can turn it on/off and tweak the volume without having to get up and walk across the room!

Wall Mountable

The Bose Solo 5 is wall mountable, and so is the Sonos Beam, however the LG SK1, the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Razer Leviathan are not. More ...

'Wall Mountable' denotes whether the soundbar can be mounted on a wall, or whether it has to rest on the floor or on a stand.

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this soundbar.

12 Reasons Against for Choosing the Bose Solo 5

Only 2 Channels Channels

The Bose Solo 5 is 2 channels channels, and so does the LG SK1, which is 3 times as less audio output channels as the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini and the Sonos Beam (5.1 channels). More ...

'Audio Output' denotes the number of individual channels for the soundbar to use. Specific sounds and parts of the screen are assigned to individual channels, allowing the soundbar to simulate surround sound and create a deeper audio depth.

More channels mean that the sound will be more spread across the channels, leading to a richer surround sound 'effect'.

Vastly Smaller Power

The Bose Solo 5 is a 1 soundbar. That's 39W smaller than the LG SK1 (40W), 149W smaller than the Polk Audio MagniFi Mini (150W) and 59W smaller than the Razer Leviathan (60W). More ...
