In the News Between all this bickering over who's peniphone is the largest best, it's always nice to be able to post a positive story, a story which shows that for every abusive company, there's one that shows the world just how it's done. This time, it's Bose. Founder and primary stockholder of Bose, Amar G. Bose, has donated a large number of non-voting shares of the company to MIT, where he spent his university career. Dividends over these shares will be paid each year to MIT, which will use it for research and educational purposes.

Maybe that's why you SHOULDNT ask those people. It's like asking Rolls-Royce owners what car to buy.

The gear I buy is actually cheaper than Bose, and outperforms it in almost every way. In fact, this is the experience of almost everybody who has cared to legitimately test Bose against its competition. Laughing might not be an appropriate reaction, but they would be wise to warn the OP against Bose.

Some of the people in audio forums have expensive gear, and some (like me) don't. Regardless, they do (on average) know what they're talking about. It would behoove you (and the OP) to listen to people who have expertise in a field, rather than scorning them and implying they're all elitists.

Rather than listening to the people, why not go listen to the speakers themselves? see what you like.

(ok, listen to people too).

I'd say that it's all subjective, and if you like how they sound, then they're right for you.

Some people might tell you that you don't know what sounds good, which might also be true. I think that critical listening is not natural.
