Summary: Hello World, What can I say about these but they LOVE Big Power!!! I feel alot of negative reviews are created by lack of power. Really great highs and deep bottom(i turn my sub down wth 901's) the mids are also very good and wiiiide.
Summary: I owned 901 Series IV's in the 70's. Between then and 2009 I've owned more loudspeakers than I care to admit, including klipschorns and B&W 703's. I'm not saying my 901 VI's are better than those speakers in any objective way, but in my 16x18.5x8.67' room, yes they definitely are better to my ears.
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 purchased these speakers because I've owned a set before. I belive that Bose makes the best speakers, I've owned sony, cevean veage samsung, but Bose has the best sound quaitly. If you haven't owned a set of Bose 901's you don't know what you are missing.
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: I have owned six different sets of these speakers. In my opinion, these are the best speakers ever made. second to none. With the proper amplification, they can and will out perform all. Never a single complaint from me on Bose 901's
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.
It was and still ongoing traumatic experience from hell

Summary: these speakers arrived in one box, all ripped and deformed to my sheer horror. how could anyone with a brain pack two 35 lbs. 901 speakers into one package without reinforcement insulation, was beyond my logical comprehension. then i reported the damaged items immediately to both the seller and UPS.
