Summary: After reading some of these reviews I have to put my three cents in being a long time Bose owner. I first bought my 901s series IV in 1982 at anover seas Exchange for under $ 800 new, which I power with some Marantz Esotec amps which put out about 150 rms.
Summary: Bose 901 VI have been on the market for quite some time know. We read good and bad reviews. But I guess it's a question of many aspects that influence in every each individual opinion. These speakers are very boomy. Of course if you go to a jazz concert and listen to the digital drums.
Summary: I'll admit that I'm a Bose fan. After more than 20 years of enjoying my 901 Series V's I think I'm hooked. I have moved these things all over the world and replaced amplifiers twice. I now drive them with a Sony STR DE-875.
Summary: I actually own Bose 301 speakers and they are 5 star why do people scoff 901 speakers because of their technology are you a dumbass? the sound matters and they combline direct reflect and acousticwave tech.
Summary: Purchased Series III in 1977 and was happy with them until surrounds disintegrated in 1999 - Bose swapped them for a Series VI. At that time I spent a year listening to other speakers and components and finally settled on some PMC FB1s (which have since been upgraded with the 1+ tweeter and...
Summary: These speakers are exellent if they are properly placed and amplified.Room acoustic is also very inported.In first time i use integrated amplifier with 2x100w rms and i was unsatisfy with sound at higher volume levels.After that I by old Rotel RB-5000 power amplifier with 2x500w rms and the sound...
Summary: These speakers are dificult to drive with low powered amplifier. They need amplifier with minimum 250-300w rms to give full potentional.In first time i drive him with Sony receiver str-da 1000 es with 2 x 100w and i was ansutisfy, expesaculy at higher volume levels.After that i by old Rotel rb-5000...
Summary: I did have a pair of DALI-IV and the foams were damaged. So I was looking for a pair of speakers and come across the BOSE 901(IV). I got to say I was first attracted to it because of the unique design.
Summary: These are not audiophile grade speakers. What they have is a super- midrange that reflects everywhere- not good for imaging or soundstage. Perhaps they are good for home theater, where sound effects are more important than two channel realism.
Summary: Hello stereo heads, Bose has been making 901's for quite some time. And they have done it well. It seems that the biggest complaint is that thumpers or bumpers, whatever you want to call them, want a lot of bass. I think I may have the answer for you.
