Bose Companion 5 is a Great Choice for the Computer
4 January 2014
Summary: For all normal computer sound requirements, as well as, decoding 5.1 surround Blu-Ray audio, these are great speakers to have. I really like their small footprint and modern look. Note, though, if you are a serious music person - see the Cons listed.
Pros: Very small footprint. Aesthetically pleasing. Easy control.
Cons: If you really intend to use your computer for serious music listening, then you should consider the AudioEngine 2+ and AudioEngine Subwoofer. I have them on a second system and they rock!
Excerpt: Brilliant sound at all levels. Powerful 2.1 channel speakers that have good eye appeal. The "Control Pod" which looks a lot like a hockey puck is easy and convenient to use within arm's range to adjust the volume of you favorite tune. Mixer software would be a plus in order to adjust the treble.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
