Please don't start that stuff about "good sound". Sound is subjective, just like color. You might say, that car is navy blue, but someone else may see a purplish color. Everyone perceives what they hear differently. Yes, there are accepted "norms", but it still comes down to what sounds good to a particular consumber. I generally prefer paper drivers over the new aluminum/kevlar/super material, as paper seems to have a "warmer" sound to me.
sadly your ears may in fact be screwed or you actually don't know what "good sound" sounds like.
That B&O system (like the mark levinson system from lexus) is getting rave reviews (as all of those links have told you)
And before you rank B&O as superior to Bose, allow me to quote the original article.
My first Camaro had a Bose sound system, and it had good sound. Not great sound, but good none-the-less. It was well balanced throughout the whole car, and no frequency was overpowering.
The message I want everyone to take from this lengthy review is that Bose, like Bang & Olufsen and Nakamichi, sell lifestyle and designer products whose prices are very heavily saturated by image and appeal.
@Hyper Threaded - I don't know where you got that information, but the drivers in my car we're all Bose, not Delco like GM generally uses.
As for their home systems, I don't have experience with them. So, I don't feel qualified to pass judgement.
P.S. sdy, please don't take this personally. I read over what I said again and a lot of it sounds very confrontational towards you. I'm just feeling very devil's advocatish today. :thumbs-up:
For the record, I no longer own any Bose products. My newer Camaro has the Monsoon system(similar sound quality to the Bose, but less durable ) and my home sound system is made up of JBL E50s and E30s.
