Summary: So I bought this after hearing it in the stores and thought it was great. I did a fair amount of research and read all the bad things about it online in forums but wasn't convinced because of the way I heard it sound. Now I'm no "audiophile" in fact I know very little about audio equipment. So I was delighted to buy the Bose system completely ignorant to what real audiophiles were saying. I must say I was really disappointed when I set it up in my room.
