justenjoythemusic a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
19 February 2006
Summary: Hi, This is my second review of these Bose 901 VI speakers. I don't know why my other review was removed. Perhaps it is because I told the truth about Audio Magazines and Audio stores. It is looking more and more like freedom of speech is for a select few.
Summary: Well after reading all the bad, terrible, things that most reported in their reviews toward the Bose 901's, I decided I just had to have them. I figure if so many hate something there has to be a logical reason right?. Wrong!
Summary: Contrary to myth, there is perfectly good reason to by these speakers. Listening and liking. I can say without fear of contradiction (even here) that they are unique in the world. Think different(ly). Experiment.
Summary: When I bought my 901s it was an attempt to step up from the 301s I started with as a beginner. At first I was fine with them, they were certainly capable of loud output. I became disenchanted when I started to compare them to a pair of my friends old infinitys and a pair $500 Spica T60s.
Summary: I've enjoyed the exchanges on this board for quite awhile now. Posting my views in this context is difficult but I'll hazard a shot. I bought a used pair of Bose 901's back in the late '80s and enjoyed them for a time but the surrounds eventually deteriorated and I took them down and moved on with...
Summary: The thing that I always noticed about people who are not used to the Bose sound is the first comment is not enough bass. If you were to hear a live performance, the bass should not be that over bearing. The Bose 901s don't have 12 inch woofers.
Summary: I ordered the Bose 901 after talking to the sales people at Bose. I explained what type of music I listen to and what kind of sound I wanted. They said that these speakers would rock the house and break my windows with the power I was describing.
Summary: To give you my knowledge about the famed 901's let me quickly fill you in on how I came to be a Bose fan. I am 48 now and have been into the 901's ever since I heard them at the tender age of 19 in a famouse wine bar in Liverpool called Kirklands (still there today) At the time, I knew NOTHING about...
Summary: Dear me; such invective! Why, oh why does this product arouse such extremes of feeling? I wish to state that I am in no way associated with the Bose Corp., and my review is entirely my own. Over the last 25 years I imagine I must have spent over $50,000 on various stereo systems.
