Well whatever the audiophiles may say, it surely has been an invention(If it is HIS invention) which lots of (not so audiophile) guys enjoy. I have heard Bose & I have been amazed by the sound that their small speakers give out.
Very well Deserved, Kudos to Mr Bose.

He developed something before anyone (I don't know when you were born, so maybe before you were born)
I don't own a Bose. I don't hate them. I have experienced them many times over at others place. They are not bad. I surely don't think a speaker maker can lie because they will be heard out.

I think Bose as a company is a phenominal achievement. They have really good branding, marketing and there is a lot to be learnt from them. Right from the songs they choose for the demo to the whole store experience, they are really leagues above the rest. Not all people in this world are 'value for money' conscious (if they were, no one would be designer clothes!) and Bose strikes a perfect chord for these buyers. I have more friends who are Bose customers than Marantz or Cambridge Audio customers. And they seem more than satisfied with it.
PS: I belong to 'value for money' category
What also like about Mr Bose is his ability to come up with something radically different, like a new car suspension system. It looks like a lot of car companies are going to adopt bose suspension systems over the next few years. So the cash flow from the waveguide may slow down once the patent expires, but by then, the others start kicking in.

i have a bose companion 3 bose pc speakers.they are good in sound quality nothing equals them of what is available in india. there might be as good speakers available worldwide but they all will be 5:1 .this is the best 2:1 system. bose also has fans for the longevity of its products. their speakers dont go bust plus is also their after sales.

Chalo I dont know anything about this audio shodio stuff so let the experts decide. I havent bought any of his stuff, but I've heard them at some friends places. They sounded pretty impressive, but then I'm no audiophile.

"who has revolutionized the quality and concept of stereo loudspeakers"
Bose Corp does have a lot of patents but if you refer to these patents they are ALL re-hased versions of older expired patents with some jargon thrown in. Getting a patent does not mean you have invented anything, it does mean tht you ahve the financial means and legal wherewithall to complete the patent filing process, just ask IBM or Bell Labs or Xerox.
Are his proudcts any good? My opinion is that withing the limits of psychoacoustics yes, if however compared to products in a similar price range and or live acoustic music they fall short. And as sounding impressive is concerned even a pair of Sony XPLOD woofers mated to Pio TS20s (no midrange required) will sound impressive at first listen. I would much prefer it if they sounded NATURAL.
