Summary: Great speakers for your computer. Light, open sound with lots of definition. They sound best when your ears are similar in height to the speakers and you are seated between them. Bass is limited because of the small enclosure, but I don't mind at all.
Summary: - Why you bought it It's the high end of PC-Fi Speaker on my desk. - What you like most about it Good sound. Including USB sound card inside. Remote control. - Whether or not you would buy the product again I have a plan to buy one for B&W headphone.
Summary: I almost never do reviews but there is so much conflicting information out there on these that I felt compelled to add my two cents to the mix. First and foremost the sound quality. It's why we buy them right? These sound great. Better than great. My first reaction was "Holy S***!!".
Summary: I have never spent this much money on a pair of computer speakers. I took a chance that they would sound as good as the other reviewers posted. And they do, I can't believe how such a small pair of speakers can sound this good. If you want clear and precise sound, then look no further.
Summary: I have Bowers and Wilkins in the bedroom and KEF 104s in the living room. Clear that there is a limit to what one can expect from desk top speakers; equally clear that these speakers reach that limit. I listen to a lot of piano and these speakers were perfect for Gould and Lipati.
Summary: I have owed B&W speakers for my Class "A" stereo for twenty years. They are the Rolls Royce of the industry and definitely not for everyone. If you want booming bass and sloppy sound definition there are many cheap alternatives.
Excerpt: Small size was surprising when unpacking, making me nervous.Plugged them in, sat down in the "sweet spot", went to my recorded i-Tunes, selected Hendrix: 'Hear my train coming, live', turned it up to "7", closed my eyes, and smiled. There are sound nuances here that were far less audible before.
Pros: Attractive On The Desk, Great Sound Quality
Cons: 500 Is A Little Much, Could Be 2" Taller
Summary: Great sound from small speakers. Easy to set up. Priced lower than by retail companies. Product arrived ahead of schedule. Bowers and Wilkens speakers produce great sound with good, not overpowering bass. They are perfect for at computer listening.
