Boston TVEE Model Two review

We're intrigued by Boston Acoustics’ 2.1 channel soundbar

The clever system switches itself on and learns to obey the volume control of your existing TV remote

Our Verdict

A basic but very welcome simple way to improve your home entertainment sound quality


  • Remarkable sound quality
  • Ridiculously easy to use
  • Discreet


  • Only one analogue audio input
  • Basic features
  • Only enhances your sound, no replacement for home cinema

If you thought all soundbars offered pseudo-surround, then you’re in for a shock.

Boston Acoustics’ refreshingly simple and effective take on the soundbar genre, its TVee Model Two, sticks with bona-fide stereo audio.

Instead of pretending to be a total-home-cinema-solution-in -a-box, it enhances your flatpanel TV’s invariably lightweight sound with a wonderfully crisp, detailed, and punchy speaker that’s slim enough to screw to the wall.

Simple setup

The soundbar house a lineup of dynamic drive units (four mid-range drivers and two tweeters) and is backed up by a wireless subwoofer.

The sub only needs a mains cable and, provided you set the volume to a suitable level, it does a fine job of keeping up with the little speakers.

The only audio cable you need, in fact, is the supplied phono lead that runs to your TV’s audio output. It really is that easy to set up.
