Why the Bose Hate?

Audiophile-ter: I'm buying some old Bose 901s for my stepdad (series II) and I'm looking for info about equalizers. However, my searches for "Bose" here revealed lots of "Holy crap, don't ever buy Bose!" So now my question is, why the Bose hate?

I was under the impression that the 901s were simply the bees damn knees. My stepdad certainly thinks so. Is there some sort of Bose/Something Else debate equivalent to the Mac/PC debate? Is the hate reserved for the newer all-in-one mini-stereos?
And while I'm at it, is it worth paying $200 for a set of Series IIs if they don't come with the EQ? From what I've read you don't want to mix and match across series, so will I just have to watch eBay for a series II EQ to come around?
