"It's About Natural Sound Reproduction"4.0 starson by pastorjep
Pros: Unique, big clear sound, accurate reproduction
Cons: Somewhat Overpriced
Summary: I'm still amazed at many of the Bose critics--even the so-called experts. For example, "this unit should have at least bass and treble controls." Even though these do little more than color the music one is hearing. Which, incidentlly, misses the point entirely. Bose does not have these contols, Bose does not have any such controls, Bose does not sound like any other music system....Why? Because Bose is about one main thing: NATURAL SOUND REPRODUCTION. What you are paying for is accurate sound reproduction (albeit a little pricey). Now, you may prefer the better "processed" music of competitors. After all, that's what we're used to. Music is "processed" at the recording studio. But, that isn't good enough, is it? We want our music systems to "process" the music again so that we get something unnatural, something much more akin to our personal liking, than the natural reproduction most of us claim we want--including the so-called experts. Well, that's where Bose comes in. They're not interested in re-processing music. They're all about accurate sound re-production. And that's whether or not you personally like it. Thus, if accurate sound reproduction is what you really want(including every little note and nuance), the real deal, then you'll want Bose. They're one-of-a-kind. Otherwise, go with somebody else....even with the so-called experts. For, whether it be Cambridge SoundWorks or another competitor, they're just another pretender. Providing just exactly the kind of music most of us have become accustomed to.
