B is for Bose


This is written by a dinosaur who made the $1999 purchase in June 2007. The store then had a $200 discounted price (rare for Bose products) three weeks later but they honored the 30 day price guarantee and returned the difference to me. So, my cost was...

Ease of set up ; unobtrusive speakers ; easy remote use ; great sound

Small size and the multiple zone control.

Quality for the price. Far too many bugs in the system.
