my dad has some bose speakers which are older than me. they still sound great.

one thing that pisses me off about bose nowadays is their crappy infomercials about their new fangled sound system.

their focus seems to be entirely on idiots who can't set up a receiver or use real speakers. sorry bose, i'm not going to replace my 7.1 system with your "sound dock" or whatever amazing portable boom-box you are advertising now.
