Ok, that had me rolling on the floor. Honestly I've heard some amazingly stupid things but that they said that in an ad and all over the internet just blows my mind.\n\nExperience a bold standard in audio performance, simplicity and elegant design. The Wave® music system delivers the lush, room-filling sound you'd expect from large, complicated systems. Yet it requires little space and is delightfully simple to use. Forbes FYI says that "you'll think you're listening to a ... sound system that costs five times more." :eek: \n\nIt would be one thing if the Bose were $100 and they were comparing it to $500 stereos. But when you're comparing $500 to $2500, there is a significant leap in capability and quality once you pass $1000 IMO (in fact perhaps they have no idea what $700-1000 can get you). It may have come from Forbes FYI but still. I wouldn't generally start a thread whose purpose is to bash Bose on any forum, plenty of people have that taken care of anyway but this is the first time I've seen this ad or heard that line and I just can't stop giggling.\n\nSo in the spirit of the Steam Vent, what other outrageous audio claims have you heard companies make lately?
