    Hi

    I don't know if you have seen the latest issue of T3 - the technology mag

    The Bose cubes were voted best AV speakers by the readers taking into account size and sound quality and suitability for an average size living room

    Personally I am pleased to see this award and have always thought they produce a good sound ( and of course they look smashing )

    Perhaps they could send each of those readers a box of cotton buds to thank them for taking part in the survey:D

    hi all
    just like to say i think people buy this [bose] because of the prestige of the name .my wifes uncle has just finished furnishing their newly built home1.5million ,he had 27,000 pounds worth of bose stuff installed he then proudly gave us a demo.the sound was ok on par sony 550 but for 27,000 no way.he had 3 bose lifestyle 50 and 2 lifestyle35.later on he said he wished he'd just bought bose wave radio cd as this to him sounded as good[he's got two of these]so imo i think the bose name goes a long way in selling not the sound.

    It's prestigious only to those fashion conscious types that put form before function. Bose speakers are to hifi what the Rav4 is to offroading but there will always be a huge market for their products thanks to the glossy ads in the Sunday Times

    I use Bose professional speakers for conferences and ceremonies and the like.

    They are absolutely first class.

    And many times I have been tempted by the Bose Radio/CD player advertised in the glossy mags.

    But the prices - megaouch!

    It's a life style thing and i would recommend the Sony Home Cinema system at around £300 or less, which will sound just as good and has sexy small speakers, as well as the sub-woof woof...

    Bose equals Dosh - and what for at the end of the day?

    Supposedly it implies your sexual orientation.

    Presumably in this case it means 'I like getting shafted by large manufacturers, whom I pay a great deal for the privillege of providing me with this unique service.'

    Quite honestly if that's their 'bag' then fair play to them, though I think most of us on these forums would prefer the traditional full range option, with a nice meaty sub for that low end thump.
    :D :D :D

    The above should not be read in anything even vaguely approaching a tongue in cheek manner.
