August 30, 2012 — Today, Bose introduces the Solo TV sound system, an unobtrusive, single speaker designed specifically for watching television.  The Bose® Solo system dramatically improves the dialogue, music, action and sound effects from everyday programming, takes just one connection and fits neatly under many TVs.

“TV picture quality has improved over the years, but its audio quality hasn’t,” said Doug Lankford, Bose Director of Home Theatre Product Marketing.  “The Bose Solo TV sound system was developed for the love of TV –- for people who don’t want a home theatre system.  It delivers detailed sound at any volume, without the complications or intrusions of multiple components.  One listen, and you’ll realise how much you’ve been missing in your favourite shows.”

The Bose Solo TV sound system measures just 7.1 cm high x 53 cm wide and just over 30 cm deep -– yet it delivers detailed, wide, even sound using proprietary Bose digital signal processing and Bose speaker array technology.  Owners will hear programme audio clearly and naturally, even at lower volumes.  And regardless of what’s being watched, it can now be heard with the intended impact –- the whispered conversation between two actors, the powerful vocals of a talent show, the music supporting a drama, or the crack-of-a-bat for a test match-winning boundary.

The Bose Solo TV system will work with any TV, but was designed for placement under flat-panel televisions that have a base up to 51cm wide and 26 cm deep — requirements met by TVs with screens up to 32” (81.5cm) and many 40” (102 cm) to 42” (107cm) televisions.

Set-up and use is simple.  The Bose Solo TV system connects to a television with just one cable and one plug to the wall.  No additional equipment, wiring or adjustment is required.  A remote control is included and the system can also be operated by most universal remotes.

“People will enjoy the Bose Solo TV system every day,” said Lankford.  “It’s not a product reserved for special occasions, or movie night — and that’s what makes it so exciting.  Every time you watch TV, the Bose Solo system improves the experience.”

The Bose Solo TV system will be available from Bose from the 31st August 2012 and will retail at AU $549 (NZ $749).  It will be sold at Bose stores, online at, through authorised Bose dealers and direct from Bose on 1800 681 143.
