      I first bought the Bose Companion 2 set. They have a good sound, but I wanted to hear more bass. I also wanted them to fit on my computer desk. Bose also offers bigger computer speaker sets, that feature a subwoofer. The Companion 20's are great. I love the bass and the overall sound from them, especially for their size. They are taller, sleeker and better looking than the 2's. I haven't used the remote puck accessory that comes with them, but think this is a good addition to these quality speakers. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. If they have a fault, it is they can get really loud and the power supply cord to the speakers is too short so the power supply has to rest on the desk.

      Great speakers. Looks great beside the iMac but most importantly, sounds awesome. Just the right amount of bass I need on top of my desk. The volume and mute knob (that also has an input and headphone jackets) is very handy!

      Wish it could be connected to the computer using the USB for even better sound quality (plus it could got to to sleep when the computer sleeps).

      It's pricey, but worth it.

      Comments about Bose Companion 20 Multimedia Speaker System:

      Really, ever. I've been a PC user since 1991 and connected my first computer speakers a year later. I've had some great speaker systems, including many 5.1 components. Until these Bose Companion 20 speakers, all the 2-speaker systems I've tried have been mediocre at best.

      Seven years ago I had to move into a small apartment with thin walls. I never wanted my neighbors to be forced to listen to my music and videos and I hated being subjected to theirs. Consequently, I switched to 2-speaker setups and used high quality headphones for those times I wanted or needed better sound.

      My old speakers must have been getting weaker because I found myself using the headphones more and more. Unfortunately, that meant I missed phone calls and knocks on my door occasionally. But I just didn't belive new speakers were warranted because I'd never heard any that produced very good quality sound.

      One day, while cruising a local store, I saw a display of Bose speaker systems. There was a 2.1 and a 5.1 system. I listened to both and, although I realized I could never have sound as nice as those in my apartment, it did make me miss those days when I could. But they also had the Companion 20 speakers set up, so I turned them on too. I was really surprised at the quality of sound.

      I've been a fan of pop, R&B and dance beat music all my life and the tracks I heard on that display really showed me that there was a 2-speaker system that could do that kind of sound justice. I was still worried, though, that the sound would resonate through my walls and annoy the neighbors. It wasn't until I was walking away from the speaker display that I realized that, just a short distance away, the sound was nothing like what it is when standing in front of the speakers.

      The first thing I did when I got home was come here to B&H and looked to see if they had these speakers. They did and I read all the reviews. I was convinced these speakers might be just what I needed at home. I ordered them and set them up. The sound was amazing. I have not used my headphones since. Good thing too, because these speakers have much better sound quality than my VERY expensive headphones.

      Still, I worried my neighbors could hear the bass - I love the bass response from these speakers - and I did not want neighbors that felt like they wanted to pound on the walls to shut me up. I loaded up one of my favorite George Michael albums and went next door to "visit" my neighbors. The sound was barely noticable and not even objectionable when standing next to the shared wall. I asked if they had heard any sounds from my apartment and they said they hadn't noticed anything that bothered them, even during the early morning hours I tend to keep before going to bed.

      These speakers are, by far, the best 2-speaker system I've ever had. They are even better than some 4 and 5-speaker systems I've had. Great tonal quality across the board - of course, I am not an audiophile and know very little about the technical aspects of speakers and sound cards. I just know what I like and I like these speakers... a LOT.

                      Sure they sound great hooked up to the PC for Video Gaming, Music, etc. But then I decided to try them instead of the speakers on my flat screen TV, grabbing the output directly from my satellite receiver. Incredible. And with the aux jack, I can plug my iPad in to play music. I suppose if you are an audiophile, the dynamic range will fall short of your expectations, but for the rest of us, this is a sweet solution. I moved to Europe, and the speakers play the sound from my TV cable box, and my PC is plugged into the aux port. All I needed was an plug adapter as the power supply is 110V 60hz to 240V 50hz. You only need to leave the cable or satellite box powered on to listen to music stations. The TV can be turned off. Thanks Bose.

                        Comments about Bose Companion 20 Multimedia Speaker System:

                        I bought these to replace the Klipsch 2.1 Promedia speaker system because the bass speaker took up too much room.

                        The Bose Companion 20 speaker system was an ideal replacement for the Klipsch. The sound quality is comparable, I saved a lot of room on my desk and these are really stylish next to an iMac.

                        If you want excellent sound quality from your computer but don't want your computer to be your primary media center, then the speakers are for you. Regular computer audio that you hear watching YouTube, Netflix and clips from SoundCloud sound excellent.

                        The bass thump is substantial but not as crisp or deep as you would get from a 2.1 system. But when I am at the computer, I don't always want heavy thumping blasts coming directly at me. I have a 5.1 media center for that with proper distance from the speakers.

                        The Bose are in your space but not in your face. They provide a pleasing sound for speakers that are up close to you.

                                I"m amazed.
                                I needed something compact to do demos of my Zen Riffer Custom Keyboard.
                                I hook these up to my laptop and and I'm up.

                                Surprised at how good the bass is without a sub and all the wires.

                                Took me some time to learn the remote.
                                I kept turning it off by barely touching it.
                                But I learned!

                                You will be happy with these in lost situations.

                                        I bought these speakers for my small home office to enhance my MacPro computer where I spend many hours editing video projects and needed a good compliment to my Bose QuietComfort headphones.

                                        These desktop speakers easily fill my room with great sound and bass that my computer speakers cannot match.

                                          Was surprised to find that a few songs didn't sound as well as expected, but most of the music library (consisting of mainly jazz and classical) sounded great.

                                          I first bought the Bose Companion 2 set. They have a good sound, but I wanted to hear more bass. I also wanted them to fit on my computer desk. Bose also offers bigger computer speaker sets, that feature a subwoofer. The Companion 20's are great. I love the bass and the overall sound from them, especially for their size. They are taller, sleeker and better looking than the 2's. I haven't used the remote puck accessory that comes with them, but think this is a good addition to these quality speakers. I would definitely recommend them to a friend. If they have a fault, it is they can get really loud and the power supply cord to the speakers is too short so the power supply has to rest on the desk.
