Pros: Very easy to set up and user-friendly universal remote
Cons: nothing, it exceeded my expecatations
I had originally planned on going with the Bose CineMate Series II, but when I spoke with a Best Buy associate, the thing that sold me on paying the difference was the universal remote. It is easy to set up, and also to program all components together. The speakers are more compact and sleeker designed that with the base CineMate series. If you are using more than one component, this is the system for you! don't let the price scare you away, it is well worth the difference.
