Simply the best!
Throughout my adult live, Bose has been my choice of sound engines. It started in the early 70's, when my band was the second only band in Europe to have Bose speakers on stage. Since then, I have had just about every Bose unit that came on the market, including my PC speakers, Surround sound Systems, TV Sound Bars, Wave Radio, etc. When the L1 came out (with the round base) I used it for several years as my PA system. Then I scaled down and got the L1 Compact, good enough for my Lounge gigs and much lighter to carry around. Two years ago I formed a duo and we're using the L1 1S with the T1 ToneMatch unit and we couldn't be happier! 180 degree sound covering, excellent clear sound, easy setup, happy audience...what more could you ask for?
The Bose customer service is just as superb. My T1 ToneMatch developed a problem and they exchanged it for a new one, not costing me a penny. They paid for the shipping and also the return shipping of the old T1.
