I just picked up a set of Bose 601s and all the surrounds are rotted but every thing works.
Question; are they worth repairing and keeping or should I fix and sell them, I don't know
any thing about the direct reflecting system, running them on a Realistic STA 2000, also
a set of Mach ones. Music only.
Hi guys, thanks for your input, but what I'm wondering is, does the Bose direct reflect system sound any good? I like good separation in my music, and a good clean thump.
If you were at a classical concert and you closed your eyes without the visual cues the sound would not have pinpoint imaging. Bose tends to present sound in much the same way. The use of direct and reflected sound to give the spaciousness of a concert hall. Some recordings I enjoy on Bose speakers but others I prefer on my current speakers. If I had the room I would enjoy having the 601's to play those occasional recordings that would sound good. Some like the spaciousness of Bose speakers and only want them. As always to each his own.
