Default Bose Lifestyle Home Surround Systems?

Thinking of buying a Bose Lifestyle 48 System...Anyone have one? Or any other Bose surround system? What do you think about it... Seems a bit pricey...

Thanks in Advance.

I have sold and installed speakers for over 10 years now, from car to home...

I think BOSE are highly overrated in today's market.. I mean, they may suit your needs, but there are far better sounding speakers for 1/2 the price!

Glad someone else spoke up first. There are so many better speakers out there.

Well, we have several "Bose sucks" posts but no one suggesting an other brands???

If you want quality stay away from the Circuit Citys and Worst Buys. They wouldn't know quality if it bit em in the butt. I would look at Alon first. Darned good company and low dealer overhead compared to the Wally Worlds of electronics. You should also consider the Tannoy Arena system and the Revel F50. Klipsch just bought Mondial a couple of years ago and I hear they are putting out some good stuff too.

However, your home theater is only as good as the weakest component so don't scrimp on the amp/pre-amp/receiver.

BTW, I am pushing a pair of Bose 901 series 6's with an Acurus amp and pre-amp and can't really tell that they suck. Must be my hearing.

I'm looking for a home theater system to go with my HDTV. Back when I was researching the TV I found an extremely useful internet forum:

avsforum is the place to go. Personally, I like B&W speakers. There are a lot of choices out there, go to an audio speciality store, ask questions and most importantly listen to your ears. Boston Acoustics is another favorite of mine.

Klipsch inwall speakers, center channel, and subwoofer with Yamaha top of line receiver are better than the theater.....a little expensive though.
