	Count me as a Bose defender -- or a fellow owner of sub-audiophile
	ears! The Bose system in my car ('91 200Q) sounds great to me
	(regardless of the number of speakers :-).  The receiver (or the
	antenna system) leaves something to be desired, I think, but my
	poor reception could just be the somewhat hilly region I live in:
	we don't even get acceptable TV without cable. Maybe a real
	external antenna would help, but I'm not about to drill holes in
	my car for something I rarely use anyway.

	Other minor nitpicks -- dash display doesn't indicate CD mode, even
	for my factory installation, and receiver doesn't seem to have any
	seek/scan feature(!).
