If you ever need to purchase a decent 46-inch HDTV, you would get it for around $700 (INR 34,250), right? Then why someone expects you to pay around $5000 (INR 4.78 lakh) for the same HDTV?
Well, answer is you would, if you know that those 5000 bucks are going to earn you a Bose VideoWave which is equipped with a flat-screen, 1080p LCD screen and apparently invisible home theatre system with stunning sound quality. And by INVISIBLE SPEAKERS, we actually meant there are no wires, no external speakers or anything that might bug you at the time of cleaning your room but the sound as unearthly as always, off course it’s Bose.
Company known best for its iconic Wave radios, has achieved this miracle by combining its acoustic technology with display. The system comprises of few things, viz. a display itself, one master controller which resembles any gaming console and a universal remote. The master controller works as an intermediate for connecting anything to screen, e.g. XBOX and Apple TV. The master controller itself is connected to the display through the means of wire.

Although Bose has defined this TV as flat, it doesn’t mean slim. The screen is pretty thick with measuring 6-inches in thickness all thanks to six speakers which are sandwiched between it. The system comes with a special headset which can optimize the sound output for any specific room. Although Bose has included user guide with the package, you might never have to use it as its hefty $5000 tag includes not only system and its parts but installation as well as configuration by company professional. It is the only time you need to configure it, otherwise there is no need to reconfigure it unless you want to refurbish your room or god forbids, you want to move it!
Bose VideoWave Structure
The VideoWave’s sound is superior to other mid-range 5.1 home theatre systems, which is totally expected. The remote controller provided with the system is one of the simplest I’ve came across. It has only few buttons but can do lot of stuff for you. It sports a trackpad, upon touching which, picture on screen shrinks and bag of options is revealed. You can select any option using the trackpad.
So in the end, is it really worth 5k? In $5000, you could build your own home theatre system comprising of several speakers from industry leaders but I think, Bose has provided an ultimate solution by removing unnecessary wiring and speakers.
