I live in a small apartment and I couldn't live with myself if I had vandersteens boxed up so I could listen to a Bose wave radio. I'd be climbing up the walls.I'm building a full system in my apartment, moving up from about Bose level myself. Just landed on some Maggies and never looking back.
You're right about the Maggie's. I've gone back to my monitors for the last week, just because I barely got to use them before my MMG's and I have a lot of thoughts on that. Im going to review them in the GR forum in a week or so. But yeah, they are energizing the walls and the place far more than the Maggie's.
So it can get really intense in here at times, but I'm 100% confident that the neighbors are not being disturbed at all.
Right now I have my sub sitting on an ottoman. Best I could do for now. Eventually OB. What's a subdude?? I always liked subs up off the floor and away from the wall.
My dear, late "Turn that music down!" Dad would have loved that system!
I understand the concept of simplicity in your post, but that Bose player isn't even stereo...it would be hard for me to give up the 2-channel audio effect. We did have one in our office, it made good background music.
I say to the OP, good for you, sometimes simple is just really nice. I have a second system consisting of Paradigm Active 20 speakers, and a Sony ES 5 disk cd changer w/ volume control. That's it. Total cost was around $850 used and I really enjoy it.
I managed to buy the $1,000+ Bose Acoustic Wave music system at a street sale for $90. This is the larger system, but still compact and very stylish. I had great hopes for this bargain, but after extended listening I couldn't stand how bloated/boomy the bass was and I ended up selling it on craigslist for $300. Not a bad profit and it made someone else happy.
The whole point to stereo is imaging. If you can't set up to get a 3D image, you're just buying more channels of gear.
How do these Bose commercials keep sneaking in here?
It's a mono table radio with extra inputs, nothing more... it's not a system.
