Excerpt: Wanted good speakers for my computer. Music is vibrant with depth and resonance. Spoken voice easier to understand than with my old speakers. Subwoofer a bit heavy but great bass sound--full without being "thumpy." Love raised, small-profile desktop speakers. Easy setup.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: A marvelous sound for a computer system. That little Bose system produces a sound that is as sweet as my $2500 system. In fact I have quit feeding the computer music to the larger system. I have purchased another Companion5. You just can't go wrong with the Bose Label
Pros: Midrange is excellent and bass is easy to adjust. Hi-Fi is accurate. Installing was easy.
Cons: The only thing wrong was the price. However I think you will agree the system is worth the price.
Summary: The 3 speaker system lives up to the 5.1 system requirement. Bose once again did a good job. Crutchfield did an Outstanding job exchanging a damaged unit for a new one. I had the replacement in 2 days. May purchase a second unit, for second computer.
Pros: The control pod is much more useful than first anticipated. A quick tap mutes/unmutes the volume.
Summary: Hesitated to spend the money on computer speakers, but am glad that I did. I listen to music on Itunes, in my den, and these speakers just blow me away. Great, even, sound that fills the room. Wasn't sure about the hockey puck at first, but find it to be a plus

Summary: I know Bose is a great product to begin with . For a small sound system like this one it is very powerful . It has an excellent sound . I can just recommend it . It is a little bit more pricy then other systems but well worse the money .
Excerpt: Easy to install on PC with usb cable. Control pod is superb with jack for iPhone and headphones, plus volume control. XP (yes XP) and Win 7 recognize the speakers easily. Be sure to turn off all equalizer and effects on all audio output devices in the OS.
Summary: My father and I have been competing for years, spending multiple $1,000's on home systems, like B&W's and my personal favorites the powered Infinity Overatures. That being said, every time my Dad comes over, and I have my Bose Campanion 5's playing, he says, "Holy Geeze! Wow!
Pros: Excellent clarity from mid to high range, and powered sub hits the lows very nicely. I have them strategically placed for sound and stealth, but when found, they are deceivingly small and elegant. Guests usually just shake their heads in disbelief. Love the durable feel of everything especially t...
Cons: Just one. Missing something if you haven' t figured it out yet. Lower mid range. But for the price it is outstanding and I get nothing but random compliments, without even asking!
