A co-worker of mine approached me today asking for advice on purchasing a complete satellite speaker Home Theater system. He had been looking at the Bose Acoustimass® 10 Series III Home Entertainment Speaker System. http://bose.com/home_audio/ht_speakers/am10/ When he mentioned Bose, the first thing that popped in my head was how much HTF members have come to dislike Bose speakers. I promised him that with a single post on my forum, I could find him a better sounding satellite system for the money. So....without this becoming a total Bose bashing thread, can any of you convince my friend to spend his money more wisely on a comperable or better system at a $1,000 or less price point? All your responses will be greatly appreciated. He's a good co-worker and he deserves better than Bose!
