Summary: Tried out a pair for almost a month and purchased a great HK 120 watt receiver to power them. I RETURNED THEM TODAY. I only listened to music from my iPod and some of it sounded really fantastic (vocal driven pop like Adele, Ben Folds; classical; choral).
Summary: I own two pairs of 901's series 6 currently and owned a third generation pair years ago. Best investment in sound possible. Simply put, if you don't like them you can sell them for what you paid easily just on their name alone.
Summary: First I never write reviews and one who just read and make design changes and thats that. The 901s are incredible period. I hated these speakers for years since 1978. Than I bought a pair in 2009. They are unbelievable. Any music come out perfect. I own Klipsch ,B&O and ESS just to name a few.
Summary: I don't own these speakers as I found them unsatisfactory. The sound they produce is loud broad and very VERY warm. In fact if anyone is curious as to how a speaker can sound warm, these are the epitome. Having said that, the bass is strong but not distinct.
Summary: Had my 901's for over 15 years. Love them. The neighbors will know when you're have a party. There's no reason for anyone, not have something Bose. The headphones alone will improve what your old stereo puts out. And their 12 month Pay it Off with NO interest, makes it convenient and painless.
Summary: My 901 are perhaps 20 to 25 years old, and continue great with no contender on horizon, for the high price. At some point, perhaps 2 years ago, Bose advertised 901 on the web as front speakers in multisystem home systems, but due to a different sound image and purpose of 901, they received a doze of...
Summary: I owned a pair of 901's for 8 years. This is a fantastic speaker for 2 channel applications only. i.e. Music. If you have a 5 channel surround sound system look to other speakers. I ran the 901's through an Adcom GFA555 amp and the sound was strong and crisp.

Summary: These speakers have been around for years and not much has changed in its conceptual design. My first set of Bose were the 601 series one. I still have them and they still sound great after 30 years although I did replace the bass drivers (due to foam rot).
