5.0 out of 5 stars Quality at a price but with simlicity, 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Bose ® Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System (Electronics)
The Bose Companion 5 just delivers what it promises; sound quality is excellent and the usb interface makes connection to a PC a piece of cake.
The desk speakers are really neat and well balanced so not readily knocked over. The Bass unit sub-woofer is best hidden and that is possible behind a large monitor; the advantage being is that you have easy access to the power on/off switch on the sub-woofer(not essential as the system goes into a sleep mode when no sound is input). The satellite controller for volume and mute is just so convenient and offers an analogue input if you wanted to connect another audio device, not really necessary when you PC is the heart of your music world.
The quality for speech, music etc is tremendous but how much is because of the price paid I am not sure! I have listened to other makes when making this purchase and had noth mid-price range Creative and Altec Lancing speaker sets but these are way superior. I previously used (5 years)Bose Companion 2 speakers and they were good and excellent value but these are much better giving more depth and location.
I love listening to classical music as I work from home. I seriously considered the Bose Companion 3 but really didn't want to have an analogue output from the PC driving my audio as this brings other complexities such as where you run equalizers and balance etc; however, not sure I really need the extra benefits of the pseudo surround-sound but it does work well but I am not really a dvd watcher or games player where the benefits would be highest! Simply, if you can afford Bose 5's then they are quality!
