5.0 out of 5 stars I was skeptical at first but I love it after I got it!, August 5, 2007
By 
This review is from: Bose Companion 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System (Personal Computers)
I was looking for speakers for the desktop in my office. I only wanted 2.0 speakers, not those 2.1 (w/ sub), to listen to smooth nice clear cozy ambient music as you would here in a nice restaurant.

I was skeptical at first based on some negative reviews on this product. I went to Bestbuy and tested on all the speakers available on the shelf (around 6-7 brands). I was really impress w/ the outstanding quality from Bose. I understand that Bose has it own kiosk as some other negative reviews claiming that they rigged up the speaker to be over performed. I asked the Bestbuy staffs and they doubt that would be true. The sound is really clean and clear. I could actually feel the music space like I was in the music (doesn't sound flat)

If you compare apple to apple, this is an outstanding speakers. Don't compare this speakers w/ other 2.1 or 5.1 products. That's not quit fare.
But even you do so, this is still really great speakers.

Back to my story, I finally decided to take a risk and bought Bose even thought I had read "some" really negative reviews about this product. I went back home and hooked them up to my laptop and "wow" the sound quality is as good as the one I listened to at the Bose kiosk.

Let's me put this straight. If you like the sound quality you hear at the Bose kiosk, that's the sound quality you will get at home. Buy it!.
But if you don't like what you hear at the kiosk, DON'T buy it!
It's simple, go w/ other brands.

One thing I need to mention. Make sure you have a nice quality sound output device at home.
Of course, if you have a bad quality sound output device, that wouldn't do much, so as other speaker brands.

I have not purchased this product, but am leaning towards it thanks to some insightful reviews. Note on the Best Buy kiosk--I was listening to a sound comparison at Target (which had Altec and Bose side by side) and was very impressed compared to the sort of 'tinny' sound I am used to from computer speakers, which was produced on cue by the $30 Altec Lansing speakers. But... you are paying $70 more for the richer, less distorted sound. I also agree that they should not be your choice to crank the bass. If I buy them I will do a formal review.
