Well, at least they're trying to get it fixed

The sound from our Bose sound system is fabulous! Well, at least in the two rooms where it isn't malfunctioning. *sigh*

They think one of the amplifiers is defective, and it's going to take a little time to get it replaced. At least the front room--where the TV is located--is working perfectly. That's the surround sound part of the system.

The other rooms have issues. I said it isn't malfunctioning in two rooms (out of four that are hooked into the system). Actually, that's not quite true.

In the sunroom, it's working, but there's a slight noise when nothing's playing (the boss from the installation company calls it "motorboating" and that's a good description--that's the pattern the sound has, an idling boat motor--thankfully, a very quiet one). Actually, the noise is there when there is music playing, but it's too slight to be a bother.

In the other two rooms, the motorboating noise is there, too, but the real problem is that when I turn it on, it plays for a few seconds and then shuts down.

"Frustrating" doesn't really describe this. This is a very expensive system, and I was glad to hear the installation company boss say that very thing when he heard my frustration. "You paid a lot of money for this system. It should work right."

I know they'll get it fixed, and it sounds fabulous when it works. I just wish it all worked right. They're trying to rush the new equipment and get it installed. In the meantime, my irritation is mounting.

Hey, at least it's a distraction from being unemployed. ;)
