As you'll read elsewhere, they fill a good sized room with sound. I'm more impressed with how good they sound at low volume.
There's no need for a loudness button. They sound so detailed and unusually punchy at low and medium levels that I don't feel the urge to crank them. When I do turn the volume wheel up, they remain clean and very, very loud.
There is a point where the laws of physics kick in and the Companions begin to exhibit speaker compression, cabinet noise, rear port chuffing, loss of treble detail. I just can't imagine the need to push the volume that hard, they get plenty loud before
these artifacts appear.
Any extreme design like this is going to exhibit limitations and give up an advantage or two to more conventional speaker boxes. Next to a good pair of Usher, Polk or Paradigm bookshelves, those inherent flaws begin to show through. They also don't compare favorably with studio monitors like Tannoy 501As or Yamaha HS50Ms. Any of these larger, heavier, and much more expensive speakers will exhibit warmer and richer midrange, more transparency, and more nuance with complex instruments like grand piano.
Yet none of these alternative speakers
-Weigh a pound and a half each and sit perfectly next to a desktop or laptop.
-Sound as pleasant at low volume as high.
-Develop a believable stereo image sitting a foot or so apart on your desktop, and a foot or so from your face.Read more ›
After testing nearly everything I walked out of the store with Logitech's largest 2.1 setup because it simply sounder better than anything else to my hearing and was incredibly cheap. So cheap In fact that I was a little hesitant to take the risk because I knew that the price couldn't be so low for such a large and heavy setup without a compromise being made somewhere.
I got home and set up the speakers and was blown away by how much better they sounded in a smaller and quieter environment; the bass was powerful yet controlled, the mids and highs were clear yet not abrasive, and it was a fantastic system to listen to whether gaming, listening to music, or watching movies...BUT.....
...3 weeks later I turned on the speaker system and there was a loud *pop*. I tried playing a sound file and nothing was coming from the speakers. I turned up the volume to dangerous levels and could vaguely hear something coming from the left speaker. After cycling the power 4 or 5 times the system went back to normal and I could start using it again.Read more ›
More modern recordings, including those from the digital era, sound amazingly clean; but as stated above the lack of bass is deadly, yielding a sound picture that's all but bloodless. A good test in this respect was one of harpist Judy Loman's recordings: Harp Showpieces. The Bose 20's made the harp sound incredibly clear, but destroyed the atmosphere.Read more ›
