BestBuy.ca: Boston Acoustics 5.0 Speaker System $800 (Was $1100)
BestBuy Canada is offering this high-end 5.0 surround sound system. If you like good audio and you haven't gotten a system yet, or you are looking to upgrade, this is your system.
This really is a high end system. It's normally $1100 but with BestBuy's $300 discount you get it for only $800. Pretty sweet deal, if I do say so myself. The model is CS260 II if you want to look it up for some more info.
I did some poking around and it looks like this system is getting some pretty good reviews. A lot of people are putting it in the 4/5 range. Something you should keep in mind is that this is a 5.0 speaker system, meaning that it does not come with a sub woofer. I'm more of the "5.1 in a box" kinda guy. I'd rather pick it up all in one package and pay less. Of course, I'm not super big into audio. The system I'm using now has a click in the rear speakers and I've been using it for over three years now. These speakers are wasted on me.
Besides the fact that these are normally over $1000, the fact that they are 5.0 instead of 5.1 should show that they are made with the audiophile in mind. A normal person wouldn't care enough to go pick out their own sub woofer. It would actually be a good way for an aspiring audio-nut to get some experience. It isn't as advances as picking out each and every piece, but it isn't everything pre-chosen for you either.
