Summary: Already had a Bose Acoustimass 10 with a pioneer 7.1 receiver pumping 140W per channel. Wanted to add 2 more channels and looks like I made a good choice. Tried sony, pioneer and polk audio bookshelf speakers and had to return all of them. Then took a plunge and bought these bose 201. Could not have been happier. Not that AM 10 was bad setup but these speakers really make the syst much better.
Summary: The Bose speakers provide excellent sound quality. I particularly like there warrenty as recently I had experience of obtaining a substitute for a damaged speaker after nearly 5 years since purchase. The Bose tech Assistance team is very friendly. I would recommend these speakers to any one not only for their sound quality but also for the aesthetic appeal. Crutchfield from whom I obtained the speakers also provided excellent service.
Pros: Size, shape, sound quality, ease of installation.
Summary: These speakers are much quieter than I expected. I have a set of very small Bose computer speakers and they produce much more and higher quality sound than these speakers. These are also much larger than expected.
