Product Details

Bose 3·2·1 GS Series III DVD Home Entertainment System In Black, Model 321GSIIIBK

The Bose® 3·2·1® GS Series III DVD home entertainment system puts you at the center of exciting home theater with greater simplicity. Just two visible Gemstone speaker arrays—our smallest, most powerful 3·2·1 speakers—and a hideaway Acoustimass module deliver enhanced sound performance from almost anything you watch. Setup is simple: No center or rear speakers means no wiring to the back of your room. An elegant media center features a progressive scan DVD/CD player with FM/AM tuner, and an HDMI output that makes it even easier to connect to your HDTV. Plus, an easy-to-use universal remote control is programmable to run most of your home entertainment devices together with your system.

Key Features:

  • Spacious sound experience
    TrueSpace® digital processing circuitry combined with powerful Gemstone® speaker arrays create a spacious home theater experience from just two visible speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module
  • Control integration
    An easy-to-use, programmable universal remote control lets you command your television, video source (e.g. cable box or satellite receiver) and nearly all your entertainment devices along with your DVD system
  • Simplified setup
    Just three wires and a power cord are all you need to set up your system—a step-by-step DVD walks you through the process. With fewer components, and no wiring to the back of the room, your system will blend easily with your décor

Features:

  • Enhanced media center
    Enjoy a home theater experience from your movies, music and TV without a stack of components. This elegant media center houses a progressive scan DVD/CD player, FM/AM tuner. With an HDMI output, it's even easier to connect this system to your HDTV
  • Digital 5.1 decoding
    Improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS or HDTV
  • Proprietary Videostage® 5 decoding circuitry
    Proprietary Bose® technology allows you to hear home theater sound from practically everything you play, even older TV programs and videotapes that weren’t recorded in surround sound
  • Gemstone® speaker array design
    The two speaker arrays, combined with our TrueSpace® digital processing circuitry, deliver the depth and performance of home theater sound. They are also 50% smaller than the original 3·2·1 system speakers and blend into your décor
  • Neodymium iron boron magnet
    Provides a powerful magnetic field to produce sound from a tiny transducer and offers a high level of performance from a remarkably small speaker
  • TrueSpace® digital processing circuitry
    Bose technology that delivers a spacious, multi-channel sound experience with strong center imaging from just two visible speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module
  • Acoustimass® module
    This Bose breakthrough works in concert with the small speakers to deliver a fuller range of theater sound and effects. The patented Bose design produces low frequencies for all channels with no audible distortion. When the module is placed behind a curtain or chair, all of the sound seems to come directly from an expansive soundstage
  • Integrated system design
    This system is designed so every element—media center, speakers and Acoustimass module—works in harmony, enhancing performance and ease of operation
  • Simplified setup
    Just three wires and a power cord are all you need to set up your system. A setup disc is also included to guide you through the process
  • Universal remote control
    An easy-to-use, programmable universal remote control uses an infrared beam to let you command your television, video source (e.g. cable box or satellite receiver) and most of your entertainment devices together with your DVD system
  • Active electronic equalization
    Balances output of all frequencies to provide natural tonal balance and clarity throughout the audio spectrum
  • Digital Dynamic Range® speaker compression circuitry
    Enables you to hear soft sounds (particularly dialogue) even at low volumes—and still appreciate the impact of loud special effects
  • Bose® link
    Allows connectivity to a compatible Lifestyle® system for a whole-home entertainment network. This technology can also be enabled without any room-to-room wiring with the purchase of the Bose link AL8 homewide wireless audio link

          Lean, clean, great sounding machine. We didn't want lots of complicated wiring and speakers all over the room. This unit works great for our space and was easy to set up. Sound is very "real". I actually paused a movie to go see who was blowing a car horn in my driveway. To my shock... the sound was part of the movie I as watching.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Sales assistant was very helpful and delivery was fast.

          Comments about Bose 321 GS Series III DVD Home Entertainment System In Black:

          I like Bose products because of its sound. This product also has great sound as much as what I expected. Then, its media center has a problem in reading a CD/DVD. When I bought it, I have read several reviews saying it has a problem in reading CD/DVDs. It was true. It couldn't read some of my CDs and stopped during playing a DVD movie. So I returned it and am looking for just a speaker set.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I think Abt's customer service is great. They are pretty fast and kind.

              Comments about Bose 321 GS Series III DVD Home Entertainment System In Black:

              Surprising clear sound and strong bass - the chairs in my dining room actually shake when volume is above 60 in my living room.

              You will not get true sorround sound with the 321 system, it comes close though. I got bored of dealing with difficult 5.1 and 7.1 sorround sound through a receiver - hiding the wires became more and more difficult with two dogs and two kids under 3 yrs old. I am very happy with the sound and performance.

              Final note - make sure you purchase series III. Series II does not have the ability to connect via HDMI to your TV which will hinder performance.

                We have a very active toddler and wanted to decrease the need for extra wiring - this was a perfect solution. We have a large room and it still fills it with quality sound. Although it doesn't sound like true surround sound, it still sounds great. The sound is so clear and crisp with good base. It is so nice to not have speaker wire running everywhere!
