Bose 201 Series V

 

Considering these speakers are small, it is a surprise that they can stand next to bigger and more expensive speakers and sound just as pleasant. Some consumers may purchase these speakers with high expectations, so do not let the price tag fool you....

Just OK

 

The sound quality was not near what I expected from a Bose speaker. Very little bass and decent treble. Barely fills a small living room with sound.

Nice Pair Of Speakers

 

Bought a pair of these to replace an old 1980's pair of inexpensive Radio Shack speakers. Work just fine in the 16 x 20 room I placed them in. At 50watts/ channel I supply them with, (I rarely pass volume setting 2 on a 1-10 scale), they have more than...

My girlfriend noticed

 

They look great and are inobtrusive at the same time. They really do sound great even playing mp3's from the computer through my Onkyo receiver, and can handle whatever the Onkyo throws at them. Seems like a really good price too... although it's been...

My girlfriend who is very sparing in her compliments, showed up at my house this weekend and immediately started loving the music I was playing. I asked her if it was the piece of music (she likes Classical music and it was Dvorak) or the sound of it....

I had to go out to buy $2 worth of speaker wire to get it to work? Actually, I thought I had some in the house, so it was my fault

BOSE® 201® Series V Direct/Reflecting® Speaker System Black

 

I'm using these as surrounds for my 7.1 surround sound system driven by a Pioneer VSX-817 receiver. For the price you can't go wrong

None so far

201/301

 

Got my 201's a year ago, by the pool table, there are 301's on wall 25ft away, sound great but we know 301's out play the 201's. So the 201's will go in the other room, I am happy with 6 Bose's purchases. My neighbor works for Harmon/JBL, got to listen...

IMMORTAL

 

I purchased my 601's and 201's in the early 90's and had to part with the 601"s because of financial hardship but kept my 201's. I just unboxed them after 20 years and numerous military moves and these baby's still crank out some crisp clear tunes....
