You can't leave this off the list!
From same 1971 review:
"Instead, improving its start-up speed is more likely to make its stopping ability worse by causing it to overshoot the mark. We could not determine just how much of the Bose 901's high-end performance was the result of this and how much was the result of smearing due to the prolonged room reflections, but the fact remains that all of our listening panelists gave the 901 rather poor marks for detail and definition. "

Bose's success could largely be attributed to a very able marketing department. It was practically impossible to pick up a magazine like Playboy, Esquire, or any of the other magazines aimed at men, without seeing a Bose ad.
