I think this, if it's real, is pure genius. Talk about a sound that the public would just eat up.

Let's see $2500 - hmmm...that about 1470 beer. By my calculation that's about half a year's worth. Surely the speaker will last longer than that, no?

My beef with them is not related to the tailoring, far from it. I think that is the one thing they should get credit for. No sir, my beef has to do with the parts and production quality. Anyone who has worked on or even just disassembled a Bose product knows what I mean. I think it's near criminal to represent it as a quality product.

You have seen this no doubt?

Unfortunately there's no audio substitute for marketing hype and consumer ignorance

What thoroughly amazes me is they often think they have the ant pants of audio gear.

Don't know about your politics, but some Aussies are just as easily convinced about the "virtues" of Bose as some Americans. The marketing seems to be universally effective.

Some people like small speakers.
I have not seen any one build something as small as a Bose lifestyle system.
Although I have seen a lot of 3" drivers put into enclosures the size of refrigerators, you know who you are
But I have given up on small speakers personally
As they say in the greatest country in the world, bigger is better!
I don't know why I can't write that without rolling on the floor laughing

I have to admit, if I'm going to put forth the effort to build a set of speakers, I'm most interested in building something that I could not easily buy.

In other words I like bodacious huge speakers that go well below 20Hz!

James.
