Its all about marketing


It wasn't that long ago that I was under the mistaken impression that Bose speakers were "good". In
fact I still have a few of their overpriced speakers. They can be hard to get rid of. It's difficult to
explain to people why Bose speakers aren't good at all. Bose spends alot of money on marketing and building a strong
brand name and as we all know, marketing works. This
article can hopefully help to clear some things up.

For me, it came down to really listening to other speakers. If you spend the time to audition a good system
you will find that you can get quality equipment for the same or even less money than Bose. I learned a good
lesson here, always research first and be very wary of what salesmen say.

...and I ain't got no worries, cause I ain't in no hurry at all


I have been spending some time working with my stereo and home theater setup. I'm a big nut when it comes to
getting things just right with the stereo. I don't think I go too crazy with stereo equipment, but I guess others might
feel differently.

Some websites that I have been frequenting lately:



I'm looking forward to seeing The Chronicles of Riddick this weekend. Some of the reviews for it have really trashed it, but I'm still going to check it out.
