Default Bose LifeStyle 28 - time to upgrade/update

I bought my Lifestyles 28 4 years ago or so and its time to upgrade (or so I think anyway)

I have some options - I don't mind the Bose system, but personally I don't think the bass response is the best and I dislike the sound quality (at volume) for playing music. All of which may be resolved if I upgrade to the Bose LifeStyle 48 system. (I absolutely HATE that I can't control bass levels without entering a setup mode - that's BS) But before I dump $4,000 into a new Bose system I thought I might search out some experiance. My brother felt I might be able to do a lot more for $4,000 but beyond an Onkyo receiver he had nothing more to offer me. He did suggest I use the Bose cube speakers, replace the basemodule and center channel. I dunno about that - I would rather set the Bose 28 elsewhere in the house or maybe even Ebay it.....gotta be worth a Grand Still.

Any suggestions? my family room puts the viewing area against the back wall, so speakers are mounted above and to the sides - since you can't get rear speakers behind the listening area. Suggestions?

Well, should you still be around, There are some excellent speaker companies to check out. But, if you really want to invest wisely and get the best sound, it will require some work and patience on your part. Bring your own DVD`s and CD`s to the store with you. For the obvious reason that you know the material.

Your brother chose very well on the home theater receiver front. Onkyo is a favorite around here. I would say the 805 or 905. Paradigm, B & W, PSB, Monitor Audio, Totem, Klipsch, Polk all make some nice speakers that you could use in a 5.1 setup depending on your budget. Also, it would be helpful if you brought your room dimensions to your dealer as well.

Well, get started and enjoy the experience.
