Agree totally. But Bose cubes still win when you are mounting 5.1 speakers on wall and u want little cute speakers and cant do flush mount in wall. No one else has small cubes even to this day.

I've had a Bose lifestyle 12 system that lasted me for the past 14years, it finally died a couple months back. I then decided to try and pair them with a Yamaha rx573 and they just didn't sound the same. So instead of paying $3500 for a new lifestyle system I decided to go a different route and ultimately I'm glad I did.

I'm definitely not a hater either, as I said I had one for 14 years and loved it. I just have something much better now and half the price and three times the sound.

Re: Bose speakers with Yamaha receiver

I admire Bose for how they achieve that much sound out of so small speakers. They're superior in this field. But ultimately, those sophisticated psychoacoustic techniques can only partially substitute for what bigger well-built speakers can offer. It's a in a similar to compressed audio files. Even if Fraunhofer institute found out that most people don't even hear the lost frequencies, lossless or analog audio sounds different.
So I'd decided that if I'm to spend more than 2000,-€ on an audio system to give the highest priority to its audio characteristics and only the second highest priority to its optical appeal. But every one his own, of course. One has to decide and sometimes to even sacrifice part of ones goals...

I have used Bose cubes w other AVR's in several installs...for whatever reason .... they all worked well but I made sure to set the x-over at 120hz... your better off not using to Acoustimass module unless its one of the older ones with RCA input... I have hacked into one that didnt and its a pain but can be done... That being said of course the Bose tech is going to tell you that their speaker system is proprietary.... but we know it just aint so
Please Sir. Share with me how you hacked the system. My son and I were in the garage tinkering and this unit is driving us crazy. We're amateurs. Havin fun experimenting
