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.
Summary: OK, I'm going to give my view. I've ready many owner and expert reviews on many speakers (901, B&W, MBL, etc). I've listened to many, many "high end speakers". Out of about 5 years of effort, I found one consistent truth. Each lisener has his/hers own subjective preferences.
Summary: Hi Folks: Well I thought I would weigh in. I had a pair of series II's for about 25 years and enjoyed them everytime I listened to them. I got a pair of VI's a couple years ago and sold my II's to a friend along with The Carver Receiver. He loves them.
Summary: I have a set of Joseph Audio Infinite Slopes...series II. They crank...so do my Bose 901's! All this crap about how Bose 901's are junk....I think these guys either can't afford a good set, or don't have the right spot to place them....like appartment...........BIG PROBLEM..
Summary: I purchased a used set of 901SeriesVI with stands and equalizer for $600 and have been using them for 9 months. My room is LARGE at 1850 square feet. This room has unusuallly good acoustic properties. I am driving these speakers with 120 watt Sherwood and SVS dual firing sub.
