I made the mistake of thinking because its expensive it will be good. Oh how wrong I was.
When I received the first one, the speakers vibrated when the volume was turned up, even slightly. I contacted Bose and they arranged for collection of the faulty goods and in due course sent me a replacement unit, which the aluminium face plate was falling off, I couldn't be bothered to send it back again so stuck it back myself. After a couple of months this replacement unit started to play up, with the volume going up, down, on and off all of its own accord. Bose arranged for collection and repair (Something they are good at !)
Now a few months later the speakers on this unit have started making horrible noises as soon as its turned on. So guess what, Bose have arranged collection and repair again.
When I told the courier never to buy Bose as its rubbish, he said "oh I know that, I am always picking them up for repair !"
So don't be fooled into thinking that you always get what you pay for. I paid for a top quality radio cd player, but I certainly did not get one !
