My god, those things are ugly! They spin a good spin, though. Geez. I can't believe they copywrited 901, Direct/Reflecting, Stereo Everywhere. They're worse than Microsquash!

What's more amazing is that consumers actually take more precedent towards how loud a system plays rather than how well it sounds. I went to Best Buys with a friend and he actually was impressed with a Bose system they had because of how loud it played. I called them junk speakers and of course he argued because how could they be at $1500.00? I walked him over to where the floorstanders were and said at least these give you some musicality at a less price. After he listened to them for awhile he had to agree.

Notice how you are never able to A/B Bose speakers against other brands? They always get a special area of the store. Their marketing is a total head-game.

Marketing is why Microsoft is such a mega company it is today. I can't fault them for it. I just wished Bose would quit believing their own hype. I was able to listen to some of their newer floorstanders lately. A definite improvement over the cubes and others, but still lacking in good midrange detail.
