Hi all, I've got a bit of an interesting one for you here or at least i think so. Here go'es, I have BOSE accoustimass speakers for my front five and Wharfdale bipolars for my rear es/ex surrounds. My question is not about the Wharfdales but the BOSE, They were my first set of AV speakers which my local home cinema dealer sold me. They looked great and with my novice ears sounded good too but as far as many people here are concerned there garbage. I bought these speakers before ever reading an AV mag or listeneng to different packages- i guess you live and learn. Anyway i have spent the last year or so thinking arrrgh i made a bad buy and i need to replace these BOSE things and the only thing stopping me was the fact that i spent a good few days going under my floorboards to lay the cable and then making channels in my solid walls to bury the cables and then plastering over and painting again. Now here is my point, I have just suddenly realised that i still like the sound of my speakers- i always did maybe they are not great but i dont know any better or at least my ears dont. Its only people telling me that the are rubbish that makes me want to change them. So is ignorance bliss??? That is the question. I'm scared to go and audition other speakers now as it will make me spend spend spend. That in itself is not a problem its just that im thinking why spend money when your happy with what you have got? Sorry to babble on a bit folks but i think its a really interesting point and im sure that there are loads of other people stewing over the same kind of thing but maybe with amps,cables,projectors,you name it! I know one thing, the dealers love it when we get bitten by that upgrade bug. Your thoughts please, Regards, John. P.S Anyone got any decent speakers for sale, ha ha ha.
