Bose Unveils Surround-less Surround Sound
By David Dritsas
New York--Bose Corp. announced a new home theater system product last week that only uses two speakers to deliver a surround sound audio effect. Additionally the company announced two new Lifestyles series models that will be DVD-based.
The 3-2-1 DVD System will be available to Bose authorized retailers as well as direct from the company in September, priced tentatively at $999. The package is a closed system with a three-cable set-up (not including a composite or S-Video connection to a TV or monitor). Components of the system include Two speakers, an Acoustimass module (Bose's version of a subwoofer) and a newly designed "media center" that offers playback for DVD, CD, CD-R/RW and MP3 on CD.
