I know what you mean Dan. I think Bose seem to have quite a lofty opinion of themselves. They think they're the Bentley of hifi. They bang on and bang on about their new 'wave' technology being the muts nuts, but it all smacks of a marketing ploy to me. There's no way you can justify that sort of pricing when, as you say, there are cracking DAB's on the market for a fraction of the price.
Does anyone who's had any experience with it want to tell me how wrong I am?
I'll tell you one thing, that gradual volume increase function it's got on the radio alarm is genius. That really is a bentley-like luxury.
It sounds like the Bose involved a lot of precision engineering and inovation, so may the price tag is warranted. Obviously the majority of us would go for a cheap DAB instead, but for the rich and famous I bet it'd make a pretty good fashion statement. Guess there'll always be a market for stuff like this
