Alternatively you might consider the Harmon Kardon SB30. It is a new model which I believe is due to come out sometime this March. It's supposed to be very good.http://www.harmankardon.com/EN-US/Pr...px?PID=SB%2030
As someone that has own's the Bose 1SR and owned the Polk 6000 I would have to say the Bose blows the Polk away,,,,, the Bose is very much worth the extra cost over the Polk,,,,,, I wish it were not true, but it is,,,, I sure didnt like spending the extra money the Bose cost me, but it was well worth it.
As far as the HK SB30,,,, yea,,, that one is of great interest,,,, it "could" be the Bose killer,,,, I plan on getting the SB30 and doing a side by side comparison with my Bose.
