There is an idea that Bose are consider as non audiophile speakers. But for me it may depend on individual taste.

Bose 601series 11 is my best Musical speaker .if someone needs to enjoy the Musicality without going to extreme end, this is the best option.

It comes with four tweeters and two 8 inch bass cones, no separate Mid cones which may be the audiophile Dislikes .

I use this speakers with Marantz 2265b receiver also comes with Separate Mid knob ,so it easily fix the Mid-range issue by cotroling the knob ( can enjoy jazz and vocals) or either that can fix using quality Equaliser as well.

This speaker produce low and high end music second to non. Gives Natural punch to low end inviting anyone to enjoyable rhythm of music.
As we all knows no one born as a audiophile. From the music enthusiasm small segment ultimately be the audiophile.
That enthusiasm generate by speakers like Bose 601series 11 .so I believe this speakers are great contributor for making enthusiasm of the music

Finally the design and look, it's the best looking among the 601 series
And also one of the best looking at all times.
