    ***I posted this in this section because it does NOT belong in a speaker forum or whatever.***

    Remember how Bose used to have really expensive, fancy displays that were part of the experience?

    I am noticing that when I am in electronics stores, the new displays are cheap, bordering on junk. Fabric panels, flimsey build, ugly design, etc.

    I wonder if they are not selling as many units as they want and are scaling back on costs?

    Maybe they are finally making the displays match the product. [​IMG]

    I can't believe I got to throw out the first Bose joke in a thread. [​IMG]

    LOL - I was gonna say: You don't want the video overshadowing the weak-ass sound.

    I was in Circuit City recently and observed two ladies standing in front of one of the cheesy Bose displays with the rear channel "cubes" suspended on a couple of rods that extended about 5 feet out into the aisle, about 8 feet up in the air.

    One of the ladies commented how she had always wanted a Bose system. The other responded "Well I like the way this sounds, but I wouldn't like those speakers hanging over my head like that!" [​IMG]

    I swear this is an absolutely true story!

    I doubt it, when I knocked the sides of one it didn't sound as hollow as the Bose speakers.[​IMG]
