Whatever you may think of the recent marketing of the company, he was still a pioneer in the field. Link

Shame, his original 901's were a very good product

Bose has had professional products that I've liked, it's just been the overpriced Wave radios and Lifestyle systems that has hurt the company's reputation. Until the last few decades, they were always respected.

Eight years ago, I bought a used wave radio on eBay - it's a great clock radio, nothing ever goes wrong with it. Also bought a Quicklink speaker when it came out. I use the Quicklink in our bedroom to listen to music, the BBC and audiobooks, it's also a great gadget to travel with as it pairs nicely with the iPad. With great respect to Mr. Bose, I would not place his other equipment in my living room or my media room.

Do you think he will be buried in a plastic pipe coffin that has multiple twists & turns?

My assumption was that he would be buried in a series of 4 1/2" coffins....most of which face away from the headstone.

i read that someone had the 901s and he found the sound much better by turning them 180 degrees.

Yeah, but that guy was also using some of those fabulous Mapleshade Products Bedrock stands.

What speakers WOULDN'T sound great using THOSE puppies!!!!

Also, I can't prove it, but rumor has it that he may also have had the Double Helix MK1 Power Conditioning Strip in the setup as well. How can you beat THAT combo?
