Bose, I know... what else, and why? educate me!
You have no idea what you have just started here.
I agree with ^^
Of course, any speakers except the ones *I* own are completely overpriced and suck
Do a search on Bose, your question will be MORE than answered.
Karen asked NOT Bose. Do the Bose threads answer her question too? Just checking, b/c I'd like to hear some thoughts without the search...
B&W no question.
Just about anything bought at a retail store (oops, now I've done it!)
I second and third the Klipsch
Polk? (I heard this from someone else)
B&O and to a much lesser degree...Klipsch and Cambridge soundworks
Absolutely, without a doubt, THE BEST speakers for the money are any that come from the back of a white van.
Klipsch ,B&W overpriced? I don't think so. And Polk is cheeper then both.
Infinity is THE most overpriced speaker I can think of that is not Bose.
Just what is overpriced ?
It depends on what an individual can afford and wants to invest.
Should this thread be closed??
I wouldn't want to see anyone get into a fight
Overpriced: too much money for the products quality.
If speaker A cost $500 and speaker B cost $500, but speaker A was much better (in all aspects) than speaker B, I'd call speaker B overpriced.
..just a general deal. I wouldn't exactly call a $5,000 speaker overpriced, because it may perform like a $5,000 speaker.
Adam, VERY VERY well said. Overpriced is a relative thing, and just like anything else, you have to pay a lot more the get a slight increase in performance (law of diminishing returns). $500 speakers can sound 85% as good as $3000 speakers, but you know what, I want that last 10-15% because this is one of MY HOBBIES, if it wasn't, I wouldn't care about owning $500 speakers.
I think that little speaker that is in my Emerson clock radio.
Man that thing absolutely has no headroom. You would think it would have a laid back, subtle, and warm sound. But no....quite the opposite...it is harsh and "tinny" sounding with very little to no soundstage. I was going to rip it apart and rebuild the guts using solid silver braided wire and installing tubes hoping for more clairity but decided against it. Instead I have decided to pre/pro the alarm and AMP it with a bridged Aragon 200WPC deal thingy.
Currently it sounds much better than my friends Bose.
