Bose® Companion® 5 Multimedia Speaker System
Five-speaker systems are great for a home cinema set up but not so practical for your laptop or PC entertainment. Yet without a way to get the most from those 5.1 games and movie soundtracks, you're missing much of the fun.
The premium Bose® Companion® 5 three-piece speaker system delivers superb multichannel sound that seems to surround you — without the clutter of five speakers.
The Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system is perfect for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two elegant desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass® module, it will of course also provide superb quality sound for regular 2 channel stereo music. Set up is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.
The exclusive Bose TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry spreads the sound around you, so the enveloping effects seem to come from areas where there aren't even any speakers. The experience is developed especially for computer listening — putting you right in the middle of the music concert, game or special effects.
Easy to set up and use
Connection requires only a single USB connection from the computer speaker system to your PC or laptop — no special software, hardware or sound card upgrade needed.* A handy, all-in-one control pod keeps volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and auxiliary input within easy reach. The small, elegant desktop computer speakers come mounted on stands for optimum performance and extra desktop space.
Get more from your music. Get more into the game or movie. Whatever your computer entertainment passion, get more engaged with Bose® Companion® 5 multimedia speakers.
