(Welcome again to Julie, one of the finalists vying for a blogging position at the upcoming AT:Home Tech. Comment away.)
The Bose Showcase store has a lot to offer for those looking to install new home theater audio systems. They have very helpful staff and a calm environment where you can really hear things. They have a demonstration theater where you can hear their top of the line home theater audio systems.
They also have more apartment-sized audio products like desktop speaker systems and compact audio equipment like the SoundDock for iPod users or the Virtually Invisible speaker packages for people concerned about space. They also sell audio transmitter and receiver packages which allow you to listen to music from a single source in various rooms in your home, plus they have a selection of outdoor speakers for those lucky enough to have an apartment with a patio or deck.
Bose has definitely taken design into consideration and most of the equipment they sell either looks nice or can easily be hidden away. The new Companion 5 multimedia speaker system, for example, consists of two fantastically sleek-looking desktop speakers on their own compact matching stands, plus a bulky woofer that can be kept out of sight.
It's definitely worth going to see and hear the Bose collection in person if you've been thinking about buying their products online.
