Product Details

201VBK - Bose 201 Series V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System (Sold As Pair)

If you thought the renowned concert-like sound of Bose® was out of reach, think again. The 201® speaker is the most affordable member of the Bose family of Direct/Reflecting® speakers. So now you can enjoy spacious Bose sound for a lot less than you might have believed possible. Unlike conventional speakers, the 201 speaker system lets you hear rich stereo almost anywhere in the room, instead of in one small “sweet spot” between the speakers. Great for listening to music or emphasizing surround effects in home theater. Come by for a demonstration and hear the difference Bose technology makes.

Highlights:

  • Offers remarkable stereo sound and can serve as a surround speaker for movies with most Direct/Reflecting® speaker systems and the VCS-10® center channel speaker
  • Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology delivers lifelike, spacious music.
  • Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance lets you hear stereo sound almost anywhere in the room.
  • Hear deep, clean low notes from a ported enclosure.
A sound investment for stereo and home theater.

Legendary Bose® sound is well within reach with the 201® Direct/Reflecting® speaker system. These speakers deliver remarkable stereo sound with lifelike spaciousness and can serve as a quality rear channel in a Bose component home theater setup.

The 201 speakers offer a combination of performance and style for the music that moves you and the movies that keep you pinned to your seat. They integrate seamlessly with the VCS-10® center channel speaker and the Bose 301®, 601™ or 701® Direct/Reflecting® speakers for a five-speaker home theater experience.

Hear 201 speakers for yourself to appreciate this rare package of versatility and affordability. You'll understand why they have long been one of our most popular speakers.


The elements of extraordinary audio.

At the heart of this system is our proprietary Direct/Reflecting® speaker technology, which re-creates a natural balance of reflected and direct sound for an experience similar to that of a live performance. This technology also allows Stereo Everywhere® speaker performance to fill your room with the brilliance of soulful jazz or the raw energy of a gripping drama.

Each speaker features a Stereo Targeting® tweeter to create a sense of lifelike spaciousness and a 6½" woofer to reproduce the low notes with clarity, even at high volumes.

From the deep, rhythmic beat of a helicopter cutting across the sky to the uplifting songs of birds at dawn, the 201 speakers present a compelling audio experience.

Designed to fit in your life.

Suitable for living rooms, dorm rooms or most anywhere you'd like to enjoy music and movies, 201 speakers take up minimal space and blend nicely with your décor. You can also choose accessories for even more placement options.

201/301

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

Got my 201's a year ago, by the pool table, there are 301's on wall 25ft away, sound great but we know 301's out play the 201's. So the 201's will go in the other room, I am happy with 6 Bose's purchases. My neighbor works for Harmon/JBL, got to listen to his stuff to compare.

IMMORTAL

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

I purchased my 601's and 201's in the early 90's and had to part with the 601"s because of financial hardship but kept my 201's. I just unboxed them after 20 years and numerous military moves and these baby's still crank out some crisp clear tunes. Great investment.

Couldn't get better than this

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

I bought them last year...and I have stopped using surround sound options..in fact I didn't have to spend on the Powered sub-woofer I was planning to.. these are more than enough.. plugged into my Onkyo 7.1 but used only the Stereo Option. If you are a serious Audio buff (and speaker are audio, right?) you dont need to splurge.. why use a dozen speakers when two do the job...

Comments about Bose 201V Direct/Reflecting Speaker System Black:

I Bought Mine at Best Buy about a Month 1/2 ago. I keep them in My Man-Cave room in the Apt.. These Bad Boy's are exactly what I needed, And more importantantly,What they intended for. Which is to fill a small room with great sound. I collect records as a hobby, not to mention I have over 2000 CD's, I buy a lot of the new new stuff, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapelton, The Rolling Stones Re-issues etc... on Vinyl, and Yes, I DO play and Listen to them as I do others. These Bose are Setup in way facing Me in a chair, with a laptop. I run them through a simple Insinga Amplifier, hooked up a Numark M101 mixer, Run 2 Turntables, and a CD player. and man, These Thing's SEPERATE the music in way's I never heard !!! glad I got them. My next Pair will be 301's. and as for being a Veteran, as soon as i get the VA stuff right, and get a house, hopefully the 901's one day !!
