Hi all,

I want a pretty good sounding 5.1 setup that I will play music on, watch TV and movies and occasionally play games.

There is a local store that has the Bose Acoustimass (Model AM10SERIVB)
for $999. The sales guy is also selling me a $300 Yamaha receiver for about $230.

He says these speakers sound great. However, I have seen some posts that steer people away from Bose. Am I making a mistake?

Remember, I am not an audiophile, but I do like to listen to music.

Thanks,
Pete R.

You could spend less on speakers and get much better, IMO. Here are some links to better settups for the money.

or you could do a combo of the Ascend HTM 200 speakers and and HSU STF-1 for about the same price as the Bose. That package is going to be one of the best bang for buck systems you can get.

I think the reason people don't care for bose is because you are paying for the name. Energy is another company with great sound in a small package. Atlantic Technology is another speaker company with great sound for not a lot of money in their entry levels.
