Experience legendary performance from your stereo components. Our best stereo speaker system, the 901® Direct/Reflecting® speaker system, brings the warmth, power and excitement of a concert hall to your home. This flagship system creates the mix of direct and reflected sound you hear in a live performance for a listening experience that conveys much of the emotion of live music.

In 1968, the introduction of revolutionary Bose® 901® Direct/Reflecting® speakers redefined the phrase "high fidelity." For the first time, a home stereo speaker was capable of reproducing music with much of the impact, clarity and spaciousness of a live performance. Today, thanks to Bose® electronics research, our 901® speakers and the included active equaliser incorporate some 350 enhancements over the acclaimed original.

Breakthrough technology delivers spacious performance. This innovative Bose® sound system works by reflecting most of the sound off walls and other flat surfaces, instead of aiming all the sound toward you, as conventional stereo speakers do. Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology reproduces the natural concert hall balance of direct and reflected sound, so anything you listen to acquires lifelike realism.

The result is Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance that is clear and lifelike throughout the room, rather than just one "sweet spot." With a Bose® 901® home stereo speaker system, you'll experience balanced audio throughout the listening environment, no matter where you sit or stand.
