Bottom Line:   
WOW....that was the expression I just made while listening to my Bose 301 II. I must admit, I do at times read review to help me make decisions when buying audio gear. especially when buying speakers that i have not heard. When I was a teenager, I always wanted a pair Bose speakers. After reading several reviews about Bose, I decided against it. I've had Wharfedales, Cantons, JBL, Infinity, Realistic( as a teenager) and a few other. I now have two systems one in the bedroom, which is a older tube system which consist of a Dynaco pas 3 preamp,Arcam dv27a used a a cd player and a st70 amp mated with a pair Usher s520. My main system consist of a Emotiva usp 1 pre, erc1 cd player, Marantz 2120 tuner, sony es 5 disk changer as a transport, processed by a marantz dsp870 NAD 2600 amp and a pair Apogees centaures mated with Velodyne hgs 12.. Several weeks ago I got that teenage itch again to try a pair Bose 301 II in my bedroom. Found a very nice pair, looked almost new. I took down my Ushers, and hooked them up. I had to stand them vertical on my stands because of space. I listen to them for a couple weeks. they were ok, but nothing special. Guess I'll selll them, finallly got that itch scratched. placed them on Ebay for a day, with several views, but no watchers. I pulled the listing, and decided to see locally. One night while sitting listening to my main syatem, looking at the spaces on my entertainment system, i noticed a space that the 301's would fit into perfect. i grabbed them from the closet placed the perfectly on the shelf. really complimented the entertainment system. now my mind is wondering how they would sound hooked up to the NAD. The next morning out of curiousity,unhooked the Audio Quest speaker wire from the Apogees and gave it a shot.. This leads me back to the first word of my review WOW. I first put on Norah Jones, followed by Miles Davis Kind of blue, both pieces wowed me to the point of if my Apogees went out, I can definately live with these as a replacment. BTW I never hardly write reviews

Bottom Line:   
The Bose series II is is a great bookshelf speaker. I had the III sereies and they did not sound as good as the II's. If properly powered and with proper location, they produce a vary balanced and intriguing sound. Bass is quite good if positioned against room surfaces correctly. Midrange is very good and the high end is excellent. These speakers are just fun to listen to.
