My mom is disappointed in all the speakers in our house. The dinky surround sound system from a HTIB we bought for our TV is not very good for sound quality, and the $10 computer speakers in the office aren't so great.
Her friend recently bought a $500 Bose radio. She likes the sound and the ability of it to receive radio well. Is there any affordable cd radio with similar quality to the Bose radio that I could recommend her, as I hear they are notoriously overpriced?
A major brand, like Sony or Sennheiser, would be nice, as she likely wouldn't trust something obscure, but it's not crucial. By affordable, I mean probably more than $150, but less than $350 or so. I assume the same quality can be had in that range. It needs an AUX port for her iPod, too. Feel free to wander out of it if I'm overestimating or underestimating the price.
Thanks! I know very little about audio equipment, so I have no clue what to look for!
