    OT...Bose Acoustic Wave 3000??

    Thinking about getting one of these for the living room vs. a big, multi-component, stereo set-up. Any feedback on sound quality vs. a component system would be appreciated. Is it worth the $1K+??

    Also looking for input on their Lifestyle Home Theater system 28 for a surround sound system in the family room.

    Thanks, Luxy

    those little radios are very good, my parnets have a couple of the clock radio ones. sounding best thing if you have limtied space and you can move them. I have the bose surrond system sounds very good the sub is not that good though, I have heard the sony one is almost as good for half the price. I still like my old cerwin vega speakers better.

    I have one of the smaller CD radios and it sounds damm good for a small table top radio. That's why I'm very interested in the larger system but it's pretty expensive for essentially a large boom box.

    As for speakers ...I have a nice pair of Klipsch Forte II floor speakers if anyone is interested. Great sound but not lightweights.....old speaker tech., big magnets in big wooden boxes!

    Do you have one of these systems or are you just making a generalized statement?? Any small speaker is going to be bass challenged. It'll all about moving air, lot's of it.

    Bose sound ok for the money. However if you are talking does it sound good they absolutly do NOT. There are actually ver few things that Bose does well except for Market. Yes I have heard a large number of Bose systems and I have never said to myself this sounds good. However They do fit in small places so they have that going for them but aht is about it.

    Put your best foot forward!

    You are correct, it is my $$$. I'm not a Bose diehard just wanted the details. Thanks. I value the opinons and input from the folks on this board......not just on boats!

    What brand of system did your buddy go with? There is a HT/ stereo retailer around these parts called Cambridge Sounds Works....I've heard good reviews on their equipment (speakers mainly) and their prices are much more resonable compared to Bose.

    I may check out the Bose store near here just to listen to the 3000 box with a couple of my favorite CD's. There is always Ebay...

    Thanks again.
