Have you heard the VR-M90s? I'm interested to hear how they compare to the VR-M60s.
Sorry. Haven't heard the VR-M90s yet. I would like to audition the E100s as well someday.

Does anyone have experience with BA's subwoofers? For example:

VR500
VR2000

PV500
PV600
PV700
PV800
PV900
PV1000



XB2
XB4
XB6

Home Theater:

Fronts: VR2s
Center: VR910
Surrounds: 3x CR65s

driven by Denon 3930ci to a Denon AVR-3806

Very happy with the system. But the VR2s sound bright to me,
but I tolerate them because the room equalization system
in the Denon receiver tames them to what I would call neutral.
But again the VR2 speakers are less than $800 for the pair, so for the
price you can't complain.

The bookshelves beat out every other small speaker I heard
at the Good Guys superstore in Glendale Ca.

Has anyone heard the VR-M90s?

Or would anyone else like to share their experiences about other models?

Am I the only one that thinks most of the BA speakers are high priced? They are fair traded at chain stores like their competitor, Bose.

Chain stores make very little margin on electronics(even at list around 15%) and depend on fair traded speakers that are marked up 50-100%.

I don't see how you can call Bose a competitor. Boston Acoustics doesn't even sell their higher-end speakers at chain stores. I also don't know what you mean by "fair-traded."

This thread is called "Boston Acoustics Owners, Unite!" Do you own any Boston Acoustics speakers?

I'll agree that the MSRPs can be a little high, but you'll barely ever see those from an actual dealer.

The latest CR series speakers are being discontinued. Anyone has experience with the CR77 bookshelf speakers?

No, but I've heard the CR57B at Circuit City, and if those cheap speakers are any indication of the upper-CR line's quality, they'll be pretty darned good for the price. Especially if you prefer soft dome tweeters to aluminum.

I own a Boston Acoustics in-car amplifier and it's lovely.

Oh yeah, got a great setup with these in the late 90s with my first premium desktop PC. I loved the sub, ended up replacing the satellite speakers though and used a new cable. These things had an awesome hit though.

At my hosue, we own a pair of VR965. We're using a really crappy receiver and its something I've always wanted to upgrade. The speakers are really underpowered, but still sound darn good.

Sorry to res this thread but just wanted to input, for anyone looking for their next car and wanting to stick with stock speakers... Dodge models / Chrysler from 08ish and on have a really decent Bosoton Acoustics setup for their class.  Better than the Bose in Caddys / Merc (if you don't get hk), but compared to similarly priced cars like they really shine.  Much better than Toyota's rice-paper speakers =P
