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.
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.
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.
Summary: These speakers have been roundly panned by at least fifteen audiophile magazines for over thirty years. They famously lost a lawsuit in the Supreme Court to Consumer Reports.

Summary: bought 901-3's from a local big box store in 1971. never heard of the brand, but my ar-3's were worn out, and brubeck must be served. the bose and ohm speakers were the only ones to stand out in demo rooms full bland-ness. wrote a check fast.
Summary: let me tell you about my 901's I will agree.. 901's are not for everybody ... I love them.. my neighbors and pretty much the whole neighborhood might have a different opinion. FEED THEM POWER...
Summary: my belief is that the whole deal with this enduring design is the lack of a crossover network, which eliminates the blurring of sound which can occur in the most critical part of the audio spectrum, the midrange. its that simple.
Summary: Pros:Are capable of great bass and OK treble when powered with the right equipment.Can handle lots of power. Tough and long lasting. Cons:Material components need to be upgraded to be legit for the 21st century - I mean paper cones - Come on!That's so old tech. Still inefficient.
