Even a HTIB system from Sony was better than the Bose. My daughter had my old Bose system and recently changed to a Sony HTIB. She is soooooo pleased with the change. I wish she had the dough for an Axiom system.

Bose learned a lot from the Chinese following the Korean war.

...about brainwashing.

Now the Chinese are learning from Bose.

Drew, since I spend some time nearly every day listening to a Bose audio system(it came as standard equipment on my MX-5), I have to agree with Ken that in the realm of automobiles Bose's degree of suckiness is substantially lower. However, in home use you can get better sound for similar money and substantially better sound for the money with the Axiom system that you're considering.

I also started my adventure into home theather looking to buy Bose. I was also sucked into the hype.

Little voice inside said ... better find some audiophile web sites and see what people who know think.

Next thing I knew I bought M60s.

I'm a happy camper.

Funny stuff, Mark.

Mary, one of my favorite sayings is "'easily amused' is a virtue".

I'm guessing you were going to "bed" rather than to "be". Although the first time I hurriedly scanned your post and the associated content, it did make me wonder whether perhaps you laughed so hard, well, nevermind.

I was a little surprised that the "placement recommendations" were actually in the listening room and above water. I should think that "Installation Tips for Cubed Speakers" should somehow include a hammer.
