They're cheap, they're overpriced, etc. Thing is, I'm a bose guy. Have been all my life. If it's true that they really do suck for the money, then I don't want to be anymore, but I have to be actually convinced with helpful data that I can go confirm by myself. What should I listen for (both in faulty bose products and in good, other products)? How do I get into REAL hi-fi? What would cost as much and perform better than, say, a bose home theater system? What would perform as good and cost much less? Please help me
