Although it took a little while longer than expected to break theACT6 SUB/SATs in, once they were acclimated, vocals were "smooth and the guitar work came through with surprising clarity." On movies, "the bass you get is wonderfully detailed and never muddy." Overall, the quality of sound "is far beyond what the price tag suggests." Read More

When listening to DVDs, "the five main speakers created a seamless sound field." Our reviewer noted that "if I had my eyes closed, I would have believed I was listening to five identical speakers." Special effects got special treatment as "helicopter flyovers sounded utterly realistic and all speakers contributed to the solidarity of the sound field..." Read More

Boston Acoustics pays "extreme attention to detail" with each of its products.

The subwoofer "presented strong bass with good reverberation at low frequencies..." Read More
