Today the wife, daughter & I went to the mall. They had a Bose store there. I had to go in. The wife and daughter went on their way and let me do my thing.
The first pair I listened to were the (in)famous 901s. While they didn't sound horrid or anything, the $1500 price tag was way out of line. One of the 6 lurking salespeople came up and said "Awesome huh". I told here that they weren't bad, but were kinda lacking in the low and top ends and that there was an odd 'compressed' sound that I wasn't used to.
Next up was the theater demo. If you haven't sat through one of these you should. It's kinda funny. They had a little theater room set up with a projector and their speakers. They didn't actually have any DVDs to do a normal demo with.
After leaving I went to Radio Shack a few stores down and picked up some wide-range drivers @ $2.98ea. These are the same as the Fostex FE103e.
