Now there's your basic "damning by faint praise".

Man, I haven't owned Bostons in years (other than the Pro10s I had in the trunk of my car).

I was the proud owner of the speaker that made Boston Acoustics, the venerable A40. What a great speaker for $150 a pair. They would still stand up to most budget mini monitors, I would venture to say.

If you're talking about Boston Acoustics's plastic computer speakers, then yes, that's understandable.

I'm really, really interested to hear BA's new flagship speaker, the E100... I don't think they've ever made a speaker with as many drivers.





The MSRP is $2,500 each, plus the stands (which cost extra), bringing the total cost for a pair to over $5,000... Whew.

Six 5-1/4" woofers, two 5-1/4" midranges, 1 tweeter in the front, 1 switchable tweeter in the back.

The first picture is from a recent eBay auction where the pair + stands were being sold for $2,700 plus shipping. Wish I had the money!

Apparently they do, because the A series routinely fetches over $100/pair on eBay (depending on the model).

FYI-

Woot.com has BA CR65 bookshelf speakers on sale for $150 today.

If you're not familiar with woot.com, it's a "one deal, one day" website, so if you visit the site after today (4/6/7) don't expect to find them. Order up to three of whatever they've got that day, shipping is always $5 no matter what the item is or how many you order.

I've ordered several things from them and always been satisfied. Sometimes the shipping is a bit slow, but usually the deals are so good that the slight delay is worth it.

Very cool... A decent price for a pair of budget bookshelf speakers. Thanks for sharing. I normally hear about Woot for their computer part sales.

My primary are BA A150s, which were free via craigslist. Can't believe how much I lucked out on that deal. I too have access to a pair of A40s (used in the kitchen), and agree that they are an excellent bookshelf.

Pair of VR-970's towers here. Love them. VR-10 Center for the HT.

I own a BA635 2.1 computer speaker system way back from 1998. Got it with my first comp, a Gateway G6-350 system :P I love em still, though since replaced, they had tight bass, and just sounded great. They are in storage to be used when i need spare speakers.. I would never give them away for free.. they sound too good :P

BTW, first time poster, glad to be here ^_^

Heck yeah! I have pro60s. They're beautiful. If only I could get them angled properly. Stupid door panels. I also have some 6x9's in the back, don't remember the model number.

For my home theater, I have:

(2) VR-M60 (front)
(2) VR-M50 (rear)
(2) VR-MX (side-surround)
(1) VR-MC (center)
(1) PV-1000 Subwoofer

Very happy with them. They are driven with a Denon AVR-5803 receiver.

Sweet... That's the whole VR-M bookshelf reference series! I imagine it's very tonally-matched. I'm using VR-M60s as my main speakers with an integrated amplifier, and they perform very well despite the lack of a subwoofer.

Have you heard the VR-M90s? I'm interested to hear how they compare to the VR-M60s.

'ello again, BA owners.

Have any of you heard the E100 tower speakers yet?

What about the AVR7120 receiver?

I still like my circa-1989 BA T830's. They have a very neutral sound with solid bass response. They are reasonably efficient also. The look is kinda dated though, but then again so am I.
