Most people think everything Bose makes is wildly expensive. That’s true for many of the company’s products, though we would argue they’re almost always worth those high price tags. In the case of the Bose Solo 5 TV Sound System, however, you’ll be surprised at what kind of value Bose offers compared to similar compact sound bars from top brands. For example, the Sonos Beam costs $400 while the Bose Solo 5 is only $199 right now on Amazon.
