Product Details of BOSE® Companion® 5
The Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system is designed for 5.1-encoded music, games & movies, using just two elegant desktop speakers & a hideaway Acoustimass® module. Set up is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.
Five-speaker systems are great for home cinema, but not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. Yet without a way to get the most from those 5.1 games and movie soundtracks, youre missing much of the fun.
The exclusive TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry spreads the sound around you, so the enveloping effects seem to come from areas where there arent even any speakers.
The experience is developed especially for computer listening - putting you right in the middle of the music, the game, the special effects.
Hookup 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.
Specially engineered speaker arrays - come fully assembled on stands for optimum performance and more usable desktop space.
Handy control pod - houses volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and connection for a second audio source such as an MP3 player.
Compact Acoustimass® module - provides clean low frequencies, allowing the desktop speakers to be very small without sacrificing performance.
Proprietary TrueSpace® surround digital processing circuitry - reproduces enveloping sound from just two visible speakers. Engineered for computer speaker listening, it creates a dramatic acoustic environment for games, DVDs and music.
Single USB connection - links the system to your computer. No special software, sound card upgrade, adapters or complicated wiring needed.
