Setup is easy— the Acoustimass module attaches to your computer with a USB cable so you don’t have to worry about putting multiple plugs in the right ports. The desktop speakers then attach to the Accoustimass module with color-coded plugs. There is also a control pod with a volume control, headphone jack, Aux jack and mute button.

The magnetically shielded speakers are designed to work next to your monitor without interference. The signals that they get from the controller in the Acoustimass module have been tuned by the integrated signal processing and active equalization for true to the original recording sounds at almost any volume level. The compression circuitry minimizes distortion at high volumes, so go ahead and turn it up.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug and play + awesome quality

Pros: This thing was so easy to set up and get rocking with my system it was ridiculous. If you want quality sound that is easy to manage this is the right fit.

Cons: None that I have noticed.

Other Thoughts: This def. ties together an awesome gaming build for full audio/visual stimuli.

1 out of 5 eggsoverheat, cheap china made components

Pros: They do sound good, not top, but good reproduction even with no onboard sound card in the computer.

Cons: Bottom end components, the amp is integrated into a very cheaply made board, that runs smoking hot, and only last a few months before overheating starts, I managed to pull the stock heat sink off only to discover that most of the really hot components are several mm from the heatsink anyways with a cheap thermal pad stretching the difference, ended up having to custom make my own heatsink and ventilation system just to keep these stupidly expensive things from cutting out every 2 hours or so

Other Thoughts: epic waste of money

Pros: Great Sounds

Cons: It just died after a year half use. No sound but the headphone input still works.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelieveable Sound

Pros: Bought a set used for less than 1/2 of retail. Almost new - slightly used. The sound reproduction is incredible. The material used in the construction is pure quality. An incredibly well thought out product and design. As beautiful to the eyes as to the ears. I will never regret taking the gamble of buying these speakers!!! This is how music should sound!!!

Cons: Any bad reviews for this product are completely unfounded. I am not a paid spokesperson, only a converted follower to Bose.

Other Thoughts: Bought for an "in-progress" build. A highly modified Bitfenix Prodigy case, ASRock miniITX motherboard with MSATA boot drive, 250gb ssd for programs, (2) 1tb WD for storage, Six Eyes Temp/Fan controller, EVGA 650 1gb compact video card, Cooler Master CPU cooler (forgot the model), and a huge Ultra 4 850 watt modular power supply. Still in evolution.

5 out of 5 eggsI like them!

Pros: The sound quality is rich. I use these to stream music across my network to my machine from my NAS and then mainly to play video games. I had a Boston Accoustics 5.1 setup forever until my dog chewed the powercord as a pup. I wanted a small form factor and less wires to deal with. These match and in some cases surpass those in both the sound quality as well as space constraints and simplicity.

Cons: Win 7 64bit was a bit finicky at first with the connection but I attribute that to it being Windows. No slam there....just software bugs

Of course the price but then again its a Bose product

Other Thoughts: I don't really call the price a con because I chose to spend my money there. Given that the American economy is nothing but buyers of other countries products its good to know that my money will be used on an American entity. I have always been a fan of Bose products ever since I purchase my Accoustamass 15 for my house back in 2001. They are still going strong and the sound is still just as good today as it was then.... Can't beat that...

Get'll be happy you did....

5 out of 5 eggsTwo years later, still awesome speakers

Pros: Two and a half years later and these are still the best computer speakers I've ever heard. When playing Amnesia, you can hear things creeping up behind you and you turn around and nothing's there. It came from the speaker in FRONT of you. Amazing. Handles loud volumes and music just as well.

Cons: Had to move the speaker a little further from the monitor, i think the magnet was affecting it.

Other Thoughts: Would gladly buy this speaker system again.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd purchased - great product

Pros: amazing sound that Bose is known for: only 400$ very easy setup. Easy platform allows two small speakers on desk and woofer to sit on floor or lower than desk level. Can't think of a better sound system / and have tried several: this is top of line desktop PC or HDMI monitor sound

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: worth the money- don't forget sound (assuming not using headphones) when making your PC purchase

1 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: They produce sound and work in Linux (reboot first)?

Cons: They're 400 freaking dollars and do not sound better than a c r a p p y pair of 100 dollar Altec Lansings. Which is what these were to replace... I feel RIPPED OFF! Thanks "Bose".

Other Thoughts: While this may be a good deal price wise, and the surround sound is suprisingly realistic for 2.1. The sound quality from these speakers is c r a p at best. Very flat, junk - cardboard cup sounding bass. I really miss my white, cubed Altec Lansing set. Was like 100 bucks and FAR SUPERIOR TO THIS 400 DOLLAR WASTE OF MONEY! I'm an audiophile btw. If you are too, move on.

5 out of 5 eggsBose Compaiion 5

Pros: i found these speakers at our local goodwill computer store, wow what a find. didn't know Bose made speakers for computers. turns out these were the top of the line from Bose. plugged them in and was amazed at the sound quality. if i tell you what i paid for them, you will be sick. but here goes, are you ready for this, $75.00. didn't know that newegg sold them. i am hooked. if i ever have to replace them i will buy them from newegg. let me tell you there worth every penny. I crank these up and my neighbors thought i was playing my home stereo, which is a very nice stereo, about 50 times what i paid for these. these are the best computer speakers you can get. Newegg, thanks for selling such great equipment.

Cons: none, natha,

Other Thoughts: buy em,you will be the envy, of your block.
