The editors liked

  • The subwoofer delivers nice rumble. Speakers widen the stereo image. Great for desktop or home listening. Wired control has volume and mute button.
  • Great design and build quality
  • Brilliant sound with clarity and details
  • Wide soundstage
  • Easy setup

The editors didn't like

  • "Surround-like" is NOT real surround sound. The satellites are lacking in the mid-high frequencies. Control is wired.
  • Wire clutter
  • Heavy and bulky
  • Not suitable for small rooms because of its overwhelming bass

  • Abstract:  Spend the big money like the Jamo i300, and Bose delivers a 2.1 system with a serious amount of tech inside. Right up front theres the TrueSpace surround sound emulator - connect this system to a PC via USB and it will do its best to simulate 5.1 sur...

  • Abstract:  Six hundred dollars is a lot to spend on PC speakers, but that said, this three-piece speaker system is one of the more distinct-looking and attractively designed PC speaker packages weve seen -- and it sounds pretty good, too. The Companion 5 system ...
