I myself am not a Bose fan, I don't like the whole tiny speaker thing nor that they cost so much as you can get much much better for what they charge. However with that said I will say that for what they are they do sound great in certain situations and vehicles, If it is a sound you like then for an all in one unit I think people love them. I do not think the other two brands are in the same category as bose as they are much cheaper brands. Tivoli is pretty neat for what they are but I cannot compare either of those to Bose as they are not in the same world as each other. If budget is a concern then the other two are obviously the better choice but if budget does not matter and she likes the bose sound then I can say the bose unit is much better and you can do much more with them over those others.

When I say you can get much more I am speaking about systems that are not all in one, ones that you select your receiver and speakers separately.

I guess this also depends on which Bose units you are looking at, from your info I am guessing tabletop all in one units.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
Thanks for using justanswer and have a great day!

Why do you not favor Bose//are tivoli, sangeal good radios...or are there still others..do not want to get into multiple systems, i.e.receiver,speakers, etc/
Electronics Technician: Joe, Mechanic replied 4 months ago

I do not favor Bose because in my own person opinion they arent worth what they ask for them and you can get better for less. But all in ones are hard. But again for what Bose offers they do not sound bad they are just not for me. Sort of personal preference. When going to all in ones those are much harder.

Tivoli and Sangean make a good radio, I was just saying that it's hard to compare either of them to Bose.
