Very sad indeed. Bose did manage to lure mainstream customers to invest in sound systems, more effectively than the audiophile manufacturers.
Before I was introduced to the likes of Monitor Audio etc., my dream was to own a Bose system, and so did many of my mates when we were about to start earning.
In fact, I bought Bose computer speakers with my first salary, and Quiet Comfort 2 with my 3rd. Both products were amazing, and I could hear instruments I never heard before in my music. My next purchase would've been the Wave music system, and I was tempted at least 3 times, but the high cost stopped me. By the time I was ready to afford a home cinema system, I was introduced ot the audiophile market.
