    Because a $40 computer speaker or a cheap ipod dock won't give me the BASS I crave.

    (1) They are ashamed of their specs, so they hide it.

    OR

    (2) Disclosure would shock the audiophilia community as it far exceeds the standard.

    Now that IS funny.

    What do you need specs for.

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Bose does not publish data on the acoustic properties of our products because we don't believe it is an adequate indication of performance. Such data is based on analyzing various types of devices, and measurements are made in a wide variety of conditions. At this time, we are not aware of a simple, clear-cut way to compare analytic responses. Measurement techniques and test setups also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, which can make interpreting the results misleading.

    Bose offers a 30-day, risk-free test of our products. We recommend trying them in your own listening environment to evaluate them for yourself.

    For more information or to place an order, please contact one of our Customer Focused Representatives at 800-999-2673 ext. EM1. They are open Mon-Fri from 8:30 AM to 11:00 PM est. and Sat from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Our specialists will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you for contacting Bose Corporation.

    You already know that they've triggered that acquisitionial lust deep within and you want it. Their marketing department has done it's homework.

    Did peer pressure from the audiophilia community divert your decision?
    I bet that's it, otherwise you would have had the Bose

    I find it funny that you have seperated the audiophilia community and Bose into two seperate entities. You have probably stumbled onto the first whiff of truth...SVI-ism indeed!!

    I'm into Garrard ... my pride and joy (maybe you all laugh at me again).
    See my attached file pic ... I don't know if you can see it.

    Is that a 301 or 401? I know a little bit. A little bit is all there is to know. They didn't make much. I have never heard one.

    I'm not sure about how others are doing it, but I'm posting mine on Flickr and linking them here. There's also a sharing Photo Gallery link at the top of the forum pages. You could link photos from there.

    Actually, I would be glad to have one of those. The dinosaur wisecrack was just too easy to pass up.

    It's a Lab 80 ... second only to the 301/ 401 respectively. This was the world's first Automatic Transcription turntable ...
