Summary: These have great sound for a while. After a year or so, the satellite speakers started to his and it sounded like feedback. Poor wiring? I'd have to jiggle the wires behind the sub to make it stop. Eventually, the right satellite speaker went dead. It wasn't the speaker. I tried to switch them out.
Summary: Edit: My wife bought me these after I mistakenly thought they were the newer version. PROS: - Heavy, durable feel to the speakers. - Good Bass. CONS: - If you have a small desk you will be accidentaly muting the sound nearly every time you touch the volume control(circular thingy).
Summary: In terms of sound it is not a bad speaker system. Except that there is a gap in the frequencies between the sub and the satellites. I have an objective review of Bose Companion 3 on my blog where you can compare it with other speakers that I have reviewed.
Summary: Bose uses basic drivers and adds electronics (equilizers) to customize the sound. Some like it,some don't. I personally don't. I grew up with the stereo system as being critical to producing accurate sound reproduction.
Summary: I have been using this system for more than an year. I bought the system thinking that being a premium product should give me good performance over a period of time but I think that I was mistaken.
Pretty good speaker, TERRIBLE price/performance ratio

Summary: Whenever I read something like the following oft-repeated mantra from Dallas Electronics Fan: "No highs, no lows (must be Bose!)" I am reminded that there is a cadre of Bose haters out there possessed with as fervent a religious fanaticism as the Bose lovers.
Summary: Bose a highly respected name in speakers is taking advantage of that. When I first got my speakers I thought they were pretty good. However as time went on they have gotten worse and worse. The sattelites have stated an irratating buzz wich can be heard over the music.
Better than your run of the mill PC speakers but not great

Summary: Had these for about 2 years. I should say that I am an audiophile and have spent 25 years buying, building and listening to audio equipment and now have a very nice sounding 20K main system consisting of high efficiency Living Voice speakers driven by single ended triode amps and an Audio Note DAC (...
