Bose SoundTouch 130 - On Sale Now at Costco!

Hey, Gang!

I just  lashed up my new Bose SoundTouch 130 speaker system to my 6700. Costco has them on sale for a whopping $200 off, and shipping is free! At $800 (with discount), it's definitely pricey, but these beauts will make your 6700 sing almost as good as Frank Sinatra. BuhLeeve me when I tell you this, the sound radiated from this system is just so much richer, especially with its sub, which I have hidden completely out of sight, and out of way, tucked under my desk. It's fed with the included Bluetooth unit, so Look, Mom, no wires here! Up until today, I was using the Bose Companion 5 PC speakers, which are darn nice in their own right (and only half the price, at $400), but the SoundTouch 130 massively blows these PC's speakers away when driven by the 6700. BTW, the real cool thing is you can light up your entire shack with rich sound through all of your various other sound sources (besides the 6700, that is), like your TV, and any/all other various audio sources. It also ties-in, fully plug-and-play, with all of your other Bose wireless speaker sound systems scattered about your QTH. This way, you can always listen to the Noon Time Net on your various other Bose speakers, wherever they may be in your house, like even out at your pool!

    Yeah, that is expensive.  I'm happy with the Bose Companion IIs I have.  Nonetheless, enjoy!

    No issues with RF sensitivity I take it?

    Bet they sound great Larry but a little rich for my blood right now. My honey is on board with the 6600 so I'm not pushing my luck.

    And I thought I was being extravagant with the Bose Companion II speakers plus the Bose bookshelf speakers that I have in my shack.  :)

    Larry - you are bad!! 

    I thought I was pushing it patching a 6700 into my Sonos system, but that's nothing as you've gone to a dedicated killer system!

    Hoping to work you and get a capture of what I sound like played back on your setup!
