Some top tier brand right tharr.
Wow really Bose sound better then B&W? If anyone has any B&W Nautilus 801speakers, Id buy a Bose 901, and happily trade it with you! Deal of a life time if anyones keen??? Hey, I read in the paper you can get your ears de-waxed very cheaply, many say its a miracle upgrade to all things musical... hmm now Im thinking if Bose is really musical umm...
isn't this getting a little mean?
The guy's just got his own opinion, and i don't think that it's a case of Bose is better than everything, just that its better than some stuff; worse than others.
on day i will prove to all of us, that bose is one of the best companies in hifi and home cinema and of course car audio

I formally apologize for starting this interminable thread.
ok, i take it back.
If you're going to prove it to all of us, can i suggest maybe the Caribbean one summer, or maybe the alps if its winter. And you're buying the plane tickets.
Bose is like marmite, you love it or you hate it, My dad has the denon sys500sd (discontinued) i have the acoustimass 6 hooked up to a onkyo reciever and honestly i prefere the bose and so does he, i think its all about where you place the speakers the shape and size of you room and your partenering equipment, a close freind of mine has the acoustimass 10 (upgrade to mine) and it sounds terrible compared to the 6, i bought my set on his recommendation a agree the bass doesnt go deep or down really low, but its not stupid there still plenty of bass and enough weight to make transformers 2 sound taste full, although this sounds tinny and all round poor with no bass at all (must be a wiering issue) so hope this helped and sorry for the poor spelling

Sir, you almost made me fall from my chair.
My Hi-Fi (WIP): Asus eeeBox B202 (Mac OS Snow Leopard) -> USB2ISO -> Audio-GD Digital Interface -> BNC -> Audio-GD NFB-2 (modded with DIR9001 and BNC socket) -> Rotel RA-04SE -> Castle Conway 3

We have Bose Acoustimass 15, used for TV and movies only, and my wife (and me !) think it is absolutely fabulous.
Wow, old thread! It's a wide question. I have some QC headphones; do I like them? yes. Do I think they sound good? Yes. Are they worth the RRP? Nope.
This is the key thing with Bose. It's a decent sound, it's just overpriced. If you were getting this sound from a much cheaper system you'd think it was really good. I have some of their PC speakers in the kitchen plugged in to a Sonos. Size wise, they're a great fit and the kitchen isn't for critical listening anyway. But havin moved from Bose in the living room last year to a mish mash of Denon, MA-BX and Keff eggs, there is SO much more quality available for SO much less.

Can i just add
None of us hear the same and none of us see the same and everyone has there right to have an opinion.
But some seem to have an opinion when they haven't even tried a product
I've tried a few bose products now and i have always like the product , the quality , simplicity and generaly the sound though comparing the sound to other hifi systems i've had ( seperates ) the bose systems have slightly fallen short .
But for me it is the all round package including customer support and even re-sale value
