The Bose CineMate GS Series II is a 2.1-channel surround sound system consisting of an interface module, 2 Gemstone speakers, and an Acoustimass woofer module. It utilizes Bose’s proprietary TrueSpace technology to deliver a surround-sound experience with deep-fitted lows and squealing-like highs. At its core is the interface module, which includes analog and optical audio inputs for accepting transmissions directly from a television. Included also is a universal remote control built to in-fact control not just the unit, but also the attached television and any other components — such as a VCR or DVD player — attached to the television. Note also that the system features VideoStage 5, Digital 5.1, and DTS decoding—allowing it to handle the improved realism from 5.1-encoded DVDs, DBS, or HDTV.
