Bose Solo 5 review

In our opinion, the TV should be accompanied by an external soundbar to upgrade its audio performance. In this review, we show you Bose Solo 5 which may fit any TV. After analyzing the features of Bose Solo 5, we gave it an overall rating of 4 points out of 10 possible. The overall rating is too low, we would not recommend to choose this model.
