I hate to keep flogging a dead horse by bringing up Bose in yet another thread, but I was at Fry's today and they have the 10 minute demo in the "Bose Theater". I decided I would give it a shot just to see what they sounded like. Now, I am a novice in the HT arena so I didn't really have anything to use as a reference. But those 5 damn small cubes didn't sound bad. Now I understand that the statement "Bose are bad" isn't quite accurate, rather Bose overcharges for what they offer. After hearing this sub-par HT system I am excited at the potential of better options that I have yet to check out! So during this coming Saturday's HT Forum meet I am looking forward to experiencing something that I can use as a true reference to what is good.
