Excerpt: I’ve owned a Bose compact disc player and I love it. The small player delivers surround sound. I’m not sure if it does or not, but I feel like that it does. I got the Bose Companion 5 Series Speaker System to match with my Alienware. I like to play first person shooting games and my previous speakers were horrible. When the volume was up high, I started to hear “cracks” and things basically more or less malfunctioning sounds.
Summary: I may not be a sound expert, but I have excellent hearing and a very good ear for the details of music. I don't know the correct words or phrases to describe a good sound, but I know it sounds absolutely wonderful. In fact, when I plugged the system in and listened to my first song, I almost cried (no joke).
Pros: Very good sound; great quality and weighted speaker bases so they stand solid; extremely easy to install (just plug and play). I have read critiques that the bass volume knob on the subwoofer is difficult to reach in the back, but I have turned it down to between 1/2 and 1/4 and there's plenty of bass rumble for most any song.
Cons: A little pricier than I had at first planned, but well worth it.
Summary: This sound system is by far the best sound for my computer and all the media that I have and download to play on my computer. I have a great sound system for my home theater but find myself using my computer for all of my entertainment and having both systems on was hard on my power usage ! NOW I have great sound on both and can't be any happier !!
Pros: USB hookup was easy and clean speakers look great sound is unbeatable volume mute and dock unit sits on desk easy to reach moveable without moving speakers out of position NICE
Excerpt: I am listening to Pandora over these speakers as I write this review..This speaker system is all it promised and more. Easy installation, and rich, full sound. Fills the house. I would (and have already) recommend this product to anyone who enjoys music.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
