Summary: I purchased a set of 901 series V's in college and was able to upgrade to Series VI's about 10 years later. I have had those Series VI's for over 10 years now. They have a sound that an audiophile can appreciate. The tone is true and clean. They handle any power you can pump to them. The only negative is that under-powering Bose results in sub-par sound. To me that has never been an issue. Many reviews complain of less than ideal Bass.
Summary: Have you ever heard the clearly sound? If you want to know, you can try Bose 901 VI . Bose 901 VI is like pretty girl who needs dress up herself. Speaker Wire , Signal Cable ,Banana Spread Jacks and Power Amp.+Pre Amp all of them need to dress up for Bose 901 series VI. If you have all of this solution ,you will hear the sound from the paradise.
Summary: I recently purchased a pair of Bose 901s and use them with a Harmon Kardon 3490, Audio Technica Record Player and an Apple Airport Express. The set up was very simple, and the sound has been simply marvelous. I don't have a particularly acoustic room, and the back of the speakers actually face glass. Even so, the music is truly beautiful - especially so when you listen to classical music or jazz. I would strongly recommend these speakers!
Summary: I bought a pair of 901s back in the late 70s. I had the perfect room configuration for them (rectangular, with hard surfaces except for carpeted floor), and I suspended them from the ceiling. They were, without a doubt, the best sounding speakers I have ever owned. Those who have seen the movie classic "2001, A Space Odyssey" will remember the score from Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra".
Summary: I don't know why I checked out the 901's on Amazon. Maybe mindless window shopping, or maybe I was impelled by the recent passing on Amar Bose. After all, this was his company's first major product. I bought a pair of 901's in 1983. This was to celebrate finally making real money and discovering the freedom of having real discretionary income. Over the years, the 901's have been hooked up to a variety of high-end amps. Always in a basic, vanilla stereo hook-up.
Summary: Amazing little speakers. I can hear things that I couldn't on my old speakers. I've had a lot of different speakers in the past years. These Bose have a unique sound. They lack the deep bass which can be obtained with the use of a separate sub woofer if your listening style requires that extra punch. The clarity on these are amazing. I can hear the bass guitarist sliding their fingers on the strings and the vocalist take a breath before the next line.
Summary: Love the sound and t6one for some of my music. I've been enjoying since I received these speakers. Old school rocks!!!! you'll need to look at special needs to run these speakers but I found that point no big deal.
