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. Buzzing sound with the iPhone plugged into the PC with the usb cable - solved by unplugging the cable.

Summary: Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System - Graphite/Silver This is the second set of these speakers that I have bought within the past month. The first I placed in my study with a 27 inch Dell Windows 8.1 all-in-one computer. The second I placed in my bedroom with a Samsung 27 inch Windows 8 all-in-one computer. Thus the rooms are not really very big – studies about 12 x 12 in bedroom about 16 x 16 feet.
Excerpt: As any pro knows, adding the perfect component for sound makes a world of difference & w/ a system like this one, well... your work station's just gotten that much better. Having a passion for design, a minimalist system such as this one is oh, so succinct!
Pros: Added features, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
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
