    Very nice man. One of my instructors at ITT was looking to build a setup alot like that. How much did that run you? Looks good, are you gonna take the time and get the acoustics down in your entertainment room?

    Saweet. I generally don't buy into the Bose hype - there are usually better systems out there with greater value per dollar. I have a friend who has an 8 year old Macintosh Audio setup going through a 5 year old Onkyo reciever and it sounds way better than a higher-priced modern Bose 3 speaker setup.

    Bose don't suck....they are good speaks but for the price there are better speaker systems out there....you can't deny the sound quality that comes out those little speakers.....

    When I bought my speakers from Soundistrubutors.com I called and the guy told me if i didn't like these better then the Bose system then he would pay to have them shipped back so i had nothing to loose, i already knew what bose sounded like and obviously the story ends with me keeping these speakers :)

    For me personally I like Floor Standing Speakers with big center channles and surrond sound...
