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.
Summary: These are good speakers. No doubt. But way overpriced and over rated. Sorry Dr. Bose. I've owned Bose products and yes they are good, just over priced. For the money, you can do alot better and save some $$$. Just do a little homework.
Summary: The 901 always seems to generate interesting comments. Occasionally some of them reveal the writers as wrong on facts which casts doubt on their more subjective conclusions. The reviewer below believes the 901's have spring connectors and that is just factually wrong.
Summary: Let me begin with three things, that have any relevance in a review. 1. The ‘biological condition’ of the reviewer’s ears. I think we’d all agree we each have different hearing abilities, based on biological and genetic conditions.
Summary: Still not bored with them yet. I've had my 901's for about... seven or eight years and they're still my babies. I have the shiney black one's by the way, I'm special. It is true that these speakers crave wattage, I couldn't beleive what difference it made going from 100 watts to 250.
Summary: I have these speakers more than 3 years.In first time i used them with SONY STR-DA 1000 ES receiver ,and there sound good at low and midium levels. I was not satisfied and last year i bought old ROTEL RB-5000 , 500wpc power amplifier and result is amazing.
Summary: Another perspective: I am absolutely fed-up with the adolescent rubbish that some would-be buyers have to wade through! Personally, whenit comes to audio, I'm not interested in anything but highest quality music reproduction - as a professional, and classically trained musician, this is mandatory...
Summary: Great speakers, must have room to properly locate them. Download the manual (.pdf) from the Bose home page and review requirement prior to purchasing. Follow the manufacturer's suggestions and Bose 901s rule!
Summary: I have always been into audio, from my early teens when the Zenith Alegro was cool. Then graduated to a pioneer receiver with HPM speakers. Then Onkyo receiver, etc. etc. When I was in the military in Okinawa in the late 70's early 80's I dumped a bunch of $ on a stereo.
