I don't know, my friend is a sound engineer with millions of dollars in recording equipment, his own complete studio, and builds sound systems for theaters and shows. He doesn't think Bose is complete crap.
Obviously, Bose isn't going to be as good as a system where someone comes out and measures how sound reacts off of each surface of the wall, adjusts the speaker output according to the position, and points all the speakers at a central focus point, but it'* a user friendly system that works in any number of rooms. You don't have to get a new system designed every time you move or when you want to change the design of your room.
Bose is cool because they do a lot of research, not just for speakers, but for mechanics in general. The Bose Ipod dock I have fills a lot of room for a small and attractive unit.
People on here are just mad because Bose put weird impedances on their Bonneville sound systems. :P
