    Bose V25 system: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, February 5, 2011

    I just bought the V25 system last week. Here’s a rather long review with points to consider…
    The Good:
    Setup is of the system is ridiculously simple – with guided instructions that show up on your TV and verify that you have everything connected correctly. Bose also includes a setup system called AdaptIQ that uses 2 microphones in place of speakers on a set of headphones (note: see “Bad” below). You wear them and sit in 5 different locations around your room while the system plays a series of test tones from each of the system speakers and the Acoutimass subwoofer. Then the system analyzes the readings and automatically sets up the system to match your particular room acoustics. It’s smart enough to know if you haven’t moved position between test tones, displaying on the screen “It doesn’t appear as though you have moved since the last test, please move to another position” (or a message to that effect).

    The same intelligent design goes into their remote control unit. The system guides you through setting up the Bose remote control (very solid – almost seems like billet aluminum) to take over the functions of all your other remotes. Anyone can do this – Bose really has machine/human interface and usability down to a finely tuned science.

    All speaker wires are color-coded and marked for polarity at both ends. They have RCA audio jacks on one end and solder-tinned bare wires on the other. Speaker connections are made without tools by pressing a button while inserting the wires into the clearly marked holes. The rear speaker wires are 50 feet long – easily long enough to allow drilling through the floor and running them across your basement ceiling to the exact location you need in your room (assuming you have a basement). I had the entire system setup in about 90 minutes – including running the wires as described.

    It’s incredibly convenient to run every conceivable component, from Playstation, to iPod, to DVD, to Satellite or Cable TV, to Satellite radio, etc., all from the one Bose remote. When you press the “Source” button, a list appears on your TV that you can scroll through and the system switches to it. You have almost complete control of your iPod (I couldn’t get to the iPod setup menu via the remote). Song titles appear on your TV screen. If the source isn’t on or somehow got disconnected the system tells you how to fix it – right then and there. If your iPod is off, the system turns it on. It’s incredibly intuitive to use. Bose effectively re-wrote the book on designing for usability. The remote is a radio-frequency remote so it doesn’t need a line of sight to the unit and you can put the main unit in a cabinet or wherever. It works through walls. The remote also has a nice feature where you can temporarily turn on backlighting with the press of a button on the back, just above the battery cover (4 AA batteries, included). The only downside to the remote is that the buttons are a little too close together and the “Source” list disappears pretty quickly if you don’t select from it (about 2 seconds or so). That beats some systems where informational banners or messages stay on the screen so long that you miss whatever it is you’re watching (or worse, need to find the button in the dark to dismiss them).

    The Bad:
    In my situation and opinion, the V25 system has poor bass response at low volume. In order to get a good bass response, I had to turn up the volume to above 50 (on a scale of 0-100), which makes it much too loud for casual listening.

    I have a set of Bose 901 speakers that I was hoping to somehow tie into the surround sound. 901s have incredible sound and the V25 system just doesn’t match them for clarity and bass response. You can’t tie them in. In fact, there are no other accessible audio outputs to the system than those for the 5.1 speakers (which originate from the Acoustimass subwoofer – the Acoustimass speaker is connected to the main speaker with a proprietary cable). I know, I know, additional speakers would destroy the surround sound effect. However, I would have liked to use the 901s in place of the rear direct/reflect speakers. The supplied speakers are very small and meant for mid and high frequencies. The system equalization sends very little bass to them, so the 901s can’t just be connected in their place or you’d be wasting their awesome bass capabilities. Prior to buying the system, I spoke with Bose technical support and was told that I could expand the system to use the 901s, effectively getting simulated 7.1 sound. Great, I thought, that’s what I’ll do. However upon setting up the system, it was readily apparent that there were no other audio outputs to use. I called customer support again and the guy I got this time said that even if I bought the optional expansion kit, I wouldn’t be able to use the 901s in the same room without getting a distinct echo effect. The…

    Pricey, but worth it, June 5, 2010

    While I admit this system is pricey, and you are over-paying for the speakers it is still IMHO worth it. The interface is perfect and the bose system becomes your media center. One remote on radio frequency (that works through walls) controls my TV, DVR, BluRay, Ipod (on built in dock station) … the unify system that makes set-up idiot proof and is a breeze to calibrate to the room. Plus the system is sleek and aesthetic. And the sound is phenomenal. Pricey, but worth it. You get what you pay for … I am very happy with the purchase.

    Couldn’t be more pleased, December 8, 2011

    This review is from: Bose® Lifestyle® V25 home entertainment system–Black (Electronics)

    I have had this set for a week and couldn’t be more pleased. I agree with all the sentiments about the ease of setup , ease of use and the full and total integration of the whole system. Yes, it is pricey but I think you do get your money’s worth. The sound is clear and in movies, the conversation comes through.
    I am also pleased with the bass response. This may be due to the accoustics in my living room but I actually have had to reduce it from normal{which I found too heavy ) to -2. I found out that not using the rubber feet for the module helped increase the bass response. You just have to experiment.
    I normally don’t write reviews but I decided to put this out to help folks who cannot make up their minds bccause of the reviews of the so called audiophiles who know all the technical jargons. What I do now is turn on the sound from whichever source( cable,Ipod, FM radio, blue ray) and close my eyes. The quality of the output is IMHO outstanding.It doesn’t need any technical jargon to describe it.
    If you decide to get this,Bose® Lifestyle® V25 home entertainment system–Black make sure you take the time to set it up for your own surroundings. If you do so you will be pleased.
