Bose, bought by people who prefer Interior Design magazines to Hi-Fi magazines.
So nearly everyone in the world ever then?

People on this forum listen to their cables so listening to Bose can't be that bad.
...and some people on this forum are too funny for words!

I wouldn't have thought so.

4 year old thread revived?
Like most companies, they make some good stuff and stuff that doesn't provide the level of performance one might expect for the money. Great noise cancelling headphones, and I think their compact surround systems are great if you want surround sound without it taking over the living room.
I don't listen to my cables, I just sit back and admire how sexy they look. Phwoar, look at the machining and finish on my silver banana plugs...
Observe the signature in its natural habitat.
Bose makes decent hifi stuff. My first real pair of speakers back in 1986 was the Bose 201 and a few years later I lived quite happily with the Acoustimass 5 driven by the venerable Audiolab 8000A.
So even though most responses to this 4-year old thread have been less than complimentary towards Bose, I'll count myself in the minority, thanks very much.
I got some compact bose active sepakers i use when i travel. There sound really good for the size & bass weight as well. The fact also that they look nice is a bonus. I remenber in the late 80's use to go to this studio were they had bose speakers & they sounded bloody good.. Some of bose products do sound good.

bose have hight quality systems, yes their price is hight but,bose systems have an amplifier 2 or 5 speakers and a cd player.
to the peole who think bose is overpriced, try to do this: look the price of the speakers, the amplifier and the cd player,and of course the research have a price!!!!
