The Best Home Stereo Systems on the Market

Home Stereo Systems May Seem like a Chore but I Assure You They Are Worth It.

It's likely that if you're reading this you are in the market to buy a home stereo system. The best stereo systems are the ones you hand pick each component for, and many stores will try to sell you a stereo system that they have pre-built. Basically a home stereo system includes a head (receiver) and a speaker set, once you add a DVD player and TV it becomes a home theater system.

I love Bose and I don't think anyone who has heard a real Bose sound system would say they suck :P and JVC, Panasonic, and Sony have been around for a very long time.

You don't have a profitable business for as much as 30 years by performing sub par.

Admittedly Yamaha has been around a long time as well but they have had some serious flops in their past.

Pioneer only recently started producing affordable home stereo heads up until then they produced car heads.

The overall direction of the article was to outline the process of choosing components and then configuring them not to name any one product as the best. Hence the very limited suggestions.

Bose used to be decent 20-30 years ago but they havnt kept up with current technology, they still use thin plastic housing on there speakers, cheap non treated paper cones of inadequate size and small magnets that are incapable of producing a large majority of the audio spectrum. the reason they are still doing so well is because of marketing, they spend tens of million each year on marketing making up fancy terms and claiming unique technology which is suppose to be able to defy the laws of physics (though they dont actually say that specificly) sound is created through the movement of air, no matter what "imaginary" tech they claim to have come up with, u simply cannot have high end sound out of such small drivers as they are incapable of moving the required amount of air. They market the products in a manner to take advantage of people who dont know any better, who blindly accept bose for its name and most of which have never actually done any practical comparisons between bose systems and proper Hi-Fi setups. Bose knows this and that is why they dont even allow other audio systems to be anywhere near the bose demo booths in stores. will go into more detail if u are intrested.
