Excerpt: Was looking for a pair of computer speakers that have nice bass. These speakers do indeed provide that! Music and movies sound great on these speakers. Really powerful and full sound. Love the little control module as well.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I changed my desk top this year and need to add good quality speakers for viewing YouTube or online movies etc. Bose Companion 20 provides good value for my purpose. It is easy to install. I like the on/off and volume control device.
Excerpt: Really, ever. I've been a PC user since 1991 and connected my first computer speakers a year later. I've had some great speaker systems, including many 5.1 components. Until these Bose Companion 20 speakers, all the 2-speaker systems I've tried have been mediocre at best.
Summary: Excellent sound, easy to setup and use. The quality of sound gives a complexity and depth to music off my computer that fills the room. I have never heard better computer speakers and they are rugged and easily portable. Well worth the price. Bose is the best.
I'm glad someone caters to us apartment-dwellers too.

Summary: I expected better from Bose for $250. A longer cord was needed to plug them into the processor, I would have liked an adjustment for highs, lows and midrange and the sound was terrible. I expected a more crisp, clear sound. The sound was all bass and midrange. A tweeter would have been nice.
Summary: This is a phenomenal speaker system. It does what Bose is known for: It delivers a big, full range sound from little speakers. I use mine to accompany my desktop computer. I previously had a big, bulky bass unit with five speakers. Hard to find a place to put something that big.
