Hello Pit
Christmas is coming up and I am thinking about getting a shelf stereo system for my dorm/home.

I was looking in the $200 or less range and one stereo I was looking at was this sony

Is there anything within this price range that bose makes that will suit my needs?
Most of their stuff is quite expensive, but they definitely have the best quality.

Is buying Bose even worth it?

At Bose, 200$ will get you, um...headphones. But very, VERY good headphones. Conclusion: Save like a ma****a.

If you want high quality audio reproduction, stay away from Bose. But don't take my word for it. Go listen around to different systems and see what suits you. You can't really tell by just reading the specs. Myself, I detest Bose products. There's a pretty old saying in the audio industry..."No highs, no lows, must be Bose." Like I said, listen around to different systems. You may or may not agree with the aforementioned saying. Being a hardcore audiophile (it's a gift and a curse) and having listened to CDs/mixes/live shows through Bose products, I can't recommend them to anyone.

yeah Bose are terrible for accurate sound reproduction, they make everything sound really boomy. Bose is one of those companies that produced great stuff years ago and are now just riding their name. Also you won't get anything good from bose for $200. Except headphones, which is about the only thing they make that is fairly decent.
