        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. The sound from the speaker is superb - replaced a broken Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 which gave excellent sound for less than 1/3 the price of the Bose. Design/look is fantastic.

              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!

              Brilliant sound at all levels. Powerful 2.1 channel speakers that have good eye appeal. The "Control Pod" which looks a lot like a hockey puck is easy and convenient to use within arm's range to adjust the volume of you favorite tune. Mixer software would be a plus in order to adjust the treble.

                    Comments about Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System:

                    In looking for monitors, and amp, and maybe even a small mixer to enhance our edit suite upgrade, I found that this system not only had it all, but was less expensive than the two speakers I had previously been considering... and they required an amp!
                    I'd previously been fearful of checking Bose, thinking I couldn't afford the name... but this excellent choice for my edit suite looks clean, installed clean, and is going to "WOW" my clients.

                          I use at home. The thing that are great about is the quality of sound.
                          Thats it.

                            This speaker has a very good bass sound. The midrange and treble are not so open sounding, but they sound clean and crisp, you can't beat this speakers for their purity of sound

                                    First heard these speakers in a Bose Store. After the demo I simply had to have these speakers. They simply sound magnificent - no comparison to other speakers I've ever had!
                                    Bought these speakers for listening to classical music and easy listening tunes from CDs and Pandora. The sound is simply "delicious". Unbelievable for such tiny speakers. The only negative is the price. For this price I could have bought a nice entertainment system.
