Not sure what to think - annoying hiss in background.

MS, Apple Store

  • Summary: I'm a fan of Bowers and Wilkins; I have a full set of their speakers connected to my home theater system. So I was excited to purchase the MM-1 speakers for my Mac. I plugged them in, fired up iTunes, and started playing some music... And noticed white noise hissing in the background during quieter parts of songs.

  • Summary: First challenge twisting back off from remote. Very tough to do. Secondly instrux never tell you that you have to download software. Even then couldn't get sound to come out, but remote worked wonderfully for Mac speakers! Don't need a $500 remote.

Overheat and cannot change settings

  • Summary: I bought these speakers to add better sound to a kitchen t.v. (so as to overcome ambient working noise levels in such an environment). The design of this product is good in appearance but poor in execution. The speakers are lightweight although their size belies their actual performance. The sound produced is good, crisp and clear on both vocal and musical program sources. However, after using for about 30 minutes these speakers get excessively hot.

Basically you can't have them in any shelf or enclosed area or too close to hifi/computer equipment as the right speaker (with the amplifier and power) gets too hot and shuts down. I phoned b&w about this issue they said speak to apple...
