    Bose

    Man I have had some sick ass stereo systems in my boats, trucks, cars, suv, and home. Always thought bose was snake oil overpriced. Well after hearing my good buddies lifestyle 535 I was floored. So I bought the same for my basement and holy shit does it sound amazing. I'm not sure how a basement acoustics are but its fn amazing. I was a non believer but now I'm a salesman for them. Amazing

    I'm so stoked I gotta say get to a high end retailer and check it out for real. I had Polk towers with a onkyo and it took up space. They were big n ugly IMO. This little system will rattle shit off the wall just like my polls but are a 1/4 of the size. Man now I needs a 60-65"

    never owned anything made by bose, love the quality but never wanted to spend the money. My dads a fan of it, has the "bose package" in his vette and my moms mazda cx-9.

    I'd say its the only quality thing about that japanese car lol.

    I bought an ancient bose radio at a garage sale last month..uses this thing called a "cass-etti"..that was broken but the amp and speaker are awesome and it has an auxiliary input for my MP3

    total price $5 It was the double stacked too much to carry model that had a carry case that looked like a cooler and a 12v adapter.

    the bose wave table radio I got as a 15 year anniversary gift from my last job retailed for $500

    Bose is certainly the shiz as far as audio goes..if you are old school and still have a sense of music.

    I picked up the OEM Bose speakers for my Honda accord way back when and it was the best $50 I ever spent on ebay.

    There's a Bose warehouse/distribution center half a mile up the road from my house. I wonder how many people go in there thinking it's a showroom or something. lol

    I had a Lifestyle system back around 2002, I wasnt impressed, the highs and mid range were good, but the lows sucked, I added a self powered JBL 12" sub to it and it sounded much better,....Used to be a saying "All highs and no lows, must be Bose"....sounds like they may have changed that....

    Bose gets no respect from the audiophile community: "No highs, no lows- must be Bose"!

    "Buy Other Stereo Equipment"

    Hmm haven't heard anything better for the money. Sure you can go blow 10-100k on a home stereo but that's of no interest to me.

    You can get a lot better with a lot less $$
    Bose has marketing..
    Others just get on with the job..

    Its great you like it, each to their own.
