Bose SoundTouch 300
A BEAUTIFULLY MADE, PRECISE SOUNDING SOUNDBAR. $799 | www.bose.com.au
BOASTING HIGH-END DESIGN, Bose’s slim soundbar looks superb, and sounds above average. At 97.9cm wide, it’s best partnered with larger screen sizes (50-inch+) and priced at $799, it offers great sound. There are caveats regarding usability and price, but overall it warrants a cautious two thumbs up.
It’s also worth mentioning that, as this isn’t a 2.1 package, there’s no subwoofer supplied – although Bose will sell you a wireless Acoustimas sub and the ST300 can be partnered with the brand’s Virtually Invisible (i.e. small at 10cm) 300 surround speakers. The system is also compatible with the Bose SoundTouch wireless multiroom system which includes smaller Bluetooth speakers.
The SoundTouch 300 is a beautifully made, precise sounding soundbar. But only those with an HDMI ARC-equipped TV should apply.
