I was optimistic about this item at first given my experience with the BOSE SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker which has excellent audio quality and bass for its size. However, I was disappointed by this device. The bass wasn't as rich as I had hoped, and it didn't fill the room like I had hoped. It sounds very mono-directional compared to other sound bars which have speakers on the ends to simulate surround sound better.
- Like the SoundLink mini, the Bluetooth feature on the Solo works very well. It quickly reconnects to previous devices, which is great.
- If you're going to use it with a TV, it's great that you can set the TV on top of it.
- Sound quality is not as good as I was expecting
- No HDMI input, so can't be used with an Apple TV without extra converters
