Has Bose gone too far with a 46-inch TV that costs upwards of $5,000? Or is this instead the best TV possible for the rich and lazy?

Looked at one way, the Bose VideoWave is a 46" CCFL-backlit LCD TV that costs $5,349, a rare bird in a market where such things have become commodity products at a tenth that price. Sure, it's got integrated speakers and does virtual surround decoding, but hey, they make soundbars for that, right? But the VideoWave offers a lot more--and a lot less, which poetically is a lot more. This isn't an all-in-one. It's just the simplest-working, best-sounding out-of-the-box TV you've ever heard.
