My folks had 901's when I was a kid at home. Didn't have much of an ear then. I do remember they were LOUD. I can buy a pair of sereis iv with eq in excellent shape for $200. 1. Are they worth the money?
2. Do they sound decent by todays standards?
3. Did they ever sound good by any standards?
Thanks much.

Welcome to AudioReview. Please understand that many members do not like Bose. As far as the 901's they have a unique sound that some like. I have heard many pairs of 901's as an audio salesman many years ago and at friends' homes. I like them on certain types of music and recordings. For the price if they are in good shape and the surrounds of the drivers are not rotted I say buy them. The 901's are unique and they are still being produced so I guess they meet today's standards for 901's. I would buy a pair for $200 just to pull them out for certain recordings. I do not think you will regret having them but I do think when you listen to more speakers you might enjoy something else a little more.
