Like I said,,, I do like Bose stuff and am not a Bose basher,,,,, but Bose is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS very late in the game when it comes to inputs and outputs and current technology.
It was years after component inputs were common place before Bose included them,,,, while $25.00 dollar upscaling DVD players were selling at WalMart, Bose was still only offering S-Video outputs and inputs.
HDMI has been out for more than a few years now and this is the first Bose system to come out with HDMI inputs and outputs,,,, it would only figure that Bose would use entry level HDMI.
Sometimes Im not sure why I like or defend Bose on this forum,,, in the last few years they have been pissing even me off with the dumbass choices thay make.
Bose has great customer service, cool sleek looking systems that are very user friendly and easy to install,,, they do so many things right,,, but then screw everything up with their crazy high prices and being 10 steps behind the current and evolving technologies.
Geeeze,,,, I feel like Im one step away from becoming a Bose basher
