Bowers & Wilkins MM-1

PC Magazine
25 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Hardly an overpriced design piece, the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 is a fantastic pair of high-end PC speakers worth saving up for.
  • Pros: Stellar audio performance with excellent clarity in mid and high frequencies. Laudable bass response without a subwoofer. Pulls audio from USB port for cleaner signal. Remote can control iTunes on your PC.
  • Cons: Expensive. Remote control is awkward to hold. Cables could be longer.

20 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Computer Speakers Have been my desktop speakers for almost 5 years and they still sound great. There is no noticeable wear and tear after years of constant use and have been extremely reliable. Plus they sound as good as they did new.
  • Pros: Perfectly balanced sound for near-field listening., Understated good looks - especially when matched with MacBook or iMac., Impeccable build quality.
  • Cons: If you want volume for volume's sake, look elsewhere., Expensive.

Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Review

  • Excerpt: When I picked up the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 speakers, I have to admit I was a bit nervous about shelling out $500 for 2.0 speaker set.  Even after listening to them in the Apple store for a while, it was difficult to tell whether or not these speakers could live up to their steep price tag.

Review: Bowers & Wilkins MM-1

Wired
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: If you crave luxury and fine-tuning, you might have once thought that desktop speakers weren’t for you. Those fancy, overpriced floor speakers teetered at the top of your must-have list (and budget) for years.
  • Pros: Terrific sound across the entire spectrum. Included remote lets you control volume and jump between tracks (iTunes and Windows Media Player only). Inputs concealed beneath speakers (peekaboo!). Coffee-mug-sized footprint.
  • Cons: Sound isn’t quite as bold as M-Audio’s AV 40s’ — a bit muffled at higher volumes. Not cheap.

MacWorld

  • Conclusion: At $699, the MM-1 is pricey, but you’re paying for far more than just a well-respected audio brand and pleasing design. These nicely balanced, detailed speakers sound great in the environment for which they were designed — atop a desk next to your laptop or computer monitor with your head within...

Bowers & Wilkins' MM-1 PC speakers deliver great audio

Good Gear Guide.au
13 January 2011
  • Summary: For a company that also sells audiophile grade music online, we were ready to question the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1's limitation to 16-bit resolution digital audio. As it happens, this speaker system makes something of a silk purse out of CD-quality music.
  • Pros: Wonderful audio, compact
  • Cons: Expensive for PC speakers
