When putting together a surround sound system on a budget, the least affordable component is the speaker package. The cost of Blu-ray players and surround sound amplifiers featuring the latest technology has decreased over the years but speaker prices have reached a plateau - until now!
The Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 speaker system features 5 speakers and a powered sub-woofer. The suggested retail price for all this is just £399.90 but, at Hi-Fi Stereo, it's even cheaper - just £350!
The package incorporates a 100-watt sub and, despite their very small dimensions, the satellite speakers feature, both, a woofer and a tweeter, making them a capable 2-way design - typical for brands we deal with but not for similarly-priced competition.
With such a compact sub and diminutive satellites, the Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 system can easily be accommodated in most lounges. Each satellite speaker can be placed on a flat surface or, using the supplied brackets, mounted to a wall and positioned at any angle.
The speakers are nicely finished in black or white and now available from Hi-Fi Stereo.
