Dumping McIntosh for Bose

Got the McIntosh mx122 processor using 4 Classe 25 amps to biamp my Bower Wilkins 802D3s, the entire system is not a match and even though it sounds ok, it’s not worth the money and it’s not practical not easy to use, and my McIntosh mx122 just stopped working and needs needs the prologic card replaced, money is tight gonna sell it buy something cheap and pocket the difference, between the Bose seismic home theatre and the lifestyle 650 which one is recommended? Bose says the seismic is better even though it’s $1000 less , maybe they saying that because they don’t have the 650 available anymore? Which one you guys recommend? Maybe I add and extra 1-2 subs? Does anyone know where I can buy a prologic replacement card for my McIntosh mx122?


There are the Bentlys in audio and the Hugos. It’s been proven that sometimes one pays a Bently price but gets parts you’d expect to find in a Hugo. Danny Richie made youtube videos where he opened up an expensive speaker and found crossovers poorly designed and with low cost parts. So for some audio advisers out there, one often buys the more expensive brands (that is suppossed to sound better) and it does not. Buyer beware, because more money spent may just mean you can stick your chest out farther, but that's all. On the other hand, I have head Bose 901 speakers set up

with good electronics, with the equalizer set properly, and it sounded much better than it should. Food for thought..

Good luck with that.   You will probably have regrets a few months after purchasing the Bose. 

Someone says something about McIntosh with bowers, is that a bad combo? I paid a lot and it sounds ok,  like someone said , it doesn’t sound better, it just makes a statement and let’s me stick my chest out a little more, now that I Done it, I guess I I rather pocket the difference
