Default Bose

We all know that Bose speaker systems are suppose to be high quality right? Well do you think this is getting too carried away? It's only a 3-piece DVD system including speakers and they want more than a grand to get it!!!

Bose® 3·2·1 GS II DVD home entertainment system
http://www.bose.com/controller?event...dvd_index&ck=0

I've seen TV reviews on this but do they really expect us to actually hear what the people here on TV through our crappy TV? I would think something like this cost in the hundreds, not in the thousands. I really like a Bose system, but with prices like this, there's no way. I was thinking of using it with my TV because i have no sound system with it. This does look attractive with just a 3-speaker hookup and if the sound is as good as they say it is as compared to 5.1 home theater setup, then I think I may think twice. I don't know. They offer payment plans, ha.

well it does use completely new audio technology, i would listen to it at a local bose place and see if u like it, if you do buy it, bose is after all high quality and for high quality your going to pay for it. sounds like to me you want high quality when u cant afford it. theres always a normal speaker system for like $800.00, you dont need this one.

Bose is so unbelievably over priced. My home theatre is running sony surround sound. 6.1 and all that jazz..10 speakers, sub and receiver picked up for around 600. Sounds great to me...

Bose is very nice, but for what they charge, I would avoid them. MBQuart owns Bose a thousand times over.

No, dont get those Bose.. Those are made basicly for a very open, and square room. its going to be hard to get the full effect of those, with obstructions in the way. I personally say go with an Pioneer, Kenwood, Sony, or Alpine, home theater system. Make sure its a 6.1 too. Get no less then 600 watts.

No, not really. Bose is nice, I'll admit that. But they overprice like a homeless asian, and for what quality they give, it's not worth it.

I could care less if you liked Bose because that's your opinion, but my opinion is that there are way better alternatives to Bose that are cheaper, yet just as good, if not better.

I agree. Yamaha should just stick with their motorcycles and lawnmowers. Pioneer and Alpine are good. Blaupunkt used to be pretty good, but their quality isn't as good now. Sony has some nice speaker setups, but the construction quality is decent.

Even the stupid little Wave radio cost a lot. I think it's because of the Bose proprietary technology that's making anything made by Bose expensive. But it does sound hell as good. I remember when I was in Best Buy one time and they had an enclosed room with a Bose 5.1 system demo going on. I hear a lot of different kind of home theater systems, but this one was very precise and powerful. I love the fact that you have only 3 little speakers for the 3-2-1 system. It looks to be a really nice, yet simple, home theater system with the sound of a traditional 5.1 system. But everytime I look at that price, I cringe.
