How do BOSE Acoustimass speakers and home theater systems really compare to high quality speakers like Polk Audio?

I'm in the market for a new home theater system, and am exploring alternatives. I've always wondered whether BOSE systems are really any better (technically) or if they are just good at marketing.
If you like my response please Kudo me!

Well, I can only speak to my experience here - and I would say I am not an audiophile I just like good, clean sound. I have a Bose Home theater - the Acoutimass 6 - my price was 580 for that. I can't tell you how much I like it - we have watched a ton of great movies with seriously good sound - Lord of the Rings is a good example - and you can't tell the difference from a good theater. Now, I haven't compared to Polk Audio - but I have compared to my friend's systems and I like mine better
