For a few things:
Very well laid out RF remotes that can operate thru walls and component cabinets and can contol all my other stuff.
Very user friendly systems, reading a manual not required.
Great on-screen menus for making any and all settings.
Customer phone support, live person answers the phone right away and is able to help with any issues that one might have.
System up-grades, they will apply all or some of the original purchase price of any system towards purchase of a newer system.
Regular software up-grade CD's mailed to you.
Easy to hook-up systems with minimal wiring.
No need to buy longer or heavy gauge speaker wires (other brands most of the time come with short, light gauge speaker wires that get thrown in the garbage).
Auto calibration set-up.
GREAT RESELL value on ebay.
Small speakers for those of us that do not need or want larger speakers.
The sound, personaly, I like the Bose sound very much, with that being said I also like Yamaha and Onkyo for the way they sound, but I like Bose as well.
If anyone can tell me a system that offers most of those features let me know, I have looked.
Ohhhhh, the cons of Bose, yes, they are expensive, but then again your paying for all the features listed above that other brands dont offer.
I know I will get replys to this post and Im sure most of them will be Bose bashing so how bout this for an idea Bose bashers.
Instead of the typical bashing and telling me what kind of paper the speakers are made of and how Bose does not publish their specs, and instead of the slam sayings like "no highs no lows, must be BLOWS" why dont you Bose bashers offer input on other systems that have most of the features that I listed.
AGAIN: Some of the most important features to me:
On screen menus.
RF remote that will control all my other stuff.
Good resale value.
No need to read and learn "ANOTHER" manual.
Thank in advance Bose bashers.
