You'll be fine, you'll think its great. Just in the future when you drop your own dollars you're likely to find cheaper stuff that sounds better, is all.
Unsatisfied. No matter what. Deep down they always want more.
Well, when you're spending your own money you want to get the best bang for the buck. However, for some folks here, your observation could be valid.
He also mentioned that he only hooked it up for a bit and then disconnected cus his wife said was too loud. So should be decently new and not worn out too much.
Speakers improve with age.....they need a break-in period where the sound will mellow out and settle down...so long as they aren't over-driven or blown you'll be fine.
I said sound not smell, bro. It seems that everyone does not like bose, but I really cannot tell the difference between any so called high end home theater systems on display at stores.
To me they all sound the same..
This is largely becuase you are listening to them in a noisey store, not in your quiet room at home about to watch a movie.
There, indeed, you will hear a difference. The ultimate question will be this: Does the difference MATTER enough to you to buy more expensive (or less, in some cases) equipment?
For me, I have $500 each main speakers and a $400 center and a couple of $120 rears. To me, the speakers sound great. But to others, my speakers wouldn't even be good enough to put in their bathroom...they want $10,000 speakers...hand made by some dude out of human skin and silk threads and set in exotic, protected hardwoods and elephant tusk enclosures
So its all relative...but in general, Bose is frowned upon by those who listen to alot of speakers and receivers for a living as being way too expensive for the sound they produce.
Get the system number and do some google searches for Reviews of it, If it did indeed cost 3 grand (I dont know what Bose costs these days) then it may have reviewed very well......you should do that if you are curious.
But in the end, if it sounds good to you, then thats all that matters.
Just so I can get this str8 if I was to buy an onkyo HTIB for 400 bucks it would sound miles better than a 3 grand bose system? because that was my only option before.
Listen to your ears to answer that question.
