I'm getting way over budget on the TV, and other equipment for my theater room, so I'm wondering if Bose is worth all the money. I saw some great reviews on the Energy Take Classic, so if I'm on a budget, would I notice a significant difference in sound quality if I went with the Energy vs the Bose? Especially since the Bose is around $2,800 vs $399?

Bose is most definitely not worth the money. Do a search here and you'll quickly find out why. Not only is the Energy Take Classic much less expensive, it's also a lot better. The vast majority here are no fans of Dr Amar Bose and his company.

PIoneer SC-1222. It'll come on sale between $499 - $549
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882117412

Yamaha RX-V673, $379

Denon AVR 1913, $399
http://www.crutchfield.com/p_033AV1913/Denon-AVR-1913.html

Any of these receivers would be perfectly fine with the Energy Take Classic 5.1 system.

The denon 1713 is a fantastic avr for the price. It has audyssey xt room correction which is very good and probably the cheapest avr with this room correction.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882981013&Tpk=mlt%202&IsVirtualParent=1

Check this speaker system. Its on sale for $250 and is comporable to the take classic system and maybe slightly better.

I disagree. The center will have comb filtering issues whereas the Energy center being a strict two way avoids that issue.

Dude, the OP is wondering about Bose (not that there's anything wrong with that!). Do you honestly think comb filtering is going to be an issue? Yeah, we get it - you're smart. But really now wink.gif

I know it's more expensive than the Energy system but it runs about $1200 less than the Bose. I'd look into the Atlantic Technology system 1400. smile.gif

So a 1st time poster and he's contemplating a $2800 Bose speaker system vs a $400 one. Quite the spread for a budget.
Decisions, decisions.....

The one guy said he thought the ML was better than the Energy Takes and I disagreed. What's the big deal?

I am finally getting the small speaker thing. Lifestyle speakers whatever you want to call them. I think folks should stop bashing. Not saying Bose is great blah blah blah but if you live in places like NY City where a 1000 sq feet could cost you a $1million I get the need for small form factor speakers if you must.

I am in one of those type real estate markets. I have a 1300 sq ft condo and my front end is top flight but my rears are cramped. I have decided to forego my rear monitors for a much smaller but modern design by Focal. Ugh it will not match my front end or sub by any means but I will gain precious floor space in the rear. Gonna try and have 30 days return.

If I were looking at that price range (Bose) and I needed my space, I get it, I would look at Focal Dome. Gonna try a pair in rears with a dream front end. Will it work? TBD but they look awesome for rears with matching stands. All reviews seem to be pretty darn good for a lifestyle speaker.

What the hell, gonna try . If on a Bose path at least consider Focal. Wow more room behind my couch. Breaking the rules but I am really getting the space thing (rears). If you have the space look elsewhere.

Not cheap but on par with Bose price wise.

If you don't mind the price and you really want the small form factor those Focals will blow Bose out of the water sound wise.

The point is...even in the small form factor area, there are MANY options better than Bose! CA minx, Orb, def tech, EMP, as well as many already mentioned systems will out perform Bose, IMHO and cost less!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Frankly speaking don't go with Bose seriously i did the same mistake now repent on my purchase. Bose speakers are way more expensive and component quality is not good and missing on some frequencies seriously. go with other product there are way more superior quality products are available in market do research first on them like Klipsch, Kef, Polk Audio, Energy and lots of others brands.
if you have budget around 3000$ then you can buy Klipsch setup with Denon amp receiver.

Here are some reviews
http://reviews.cnet.com/surround-speaker-systems/pioneer-sp-pk52fs/4540-7868_7-35477425-4.html

I think think the Pioneer Pioneer SP-PK52FS Speaker System ( designed by Andrew Jones) and a Pioneer SC1122k or SC 1222K (or of course the Pioneer SC 1522K at Costco for $599.00 previously mentioned that's an in store clearance only thing you have go or call them ) would be a swinging deal $1200.00 or less and something you can also use for music and would probably sound about the best you can get for $1200.00

other things
probably not as good of sound as above but are all in one solutions
