These small speakers pack a HUGE punch for their size. It has great bass - not overpowering, but clean, and very full. They have Bass radiators on the back, which is basically like magic.
The fullness of the sound will be amplified if you place these a few inches away from a wall.
I'm using these as my TV speakers and I couldn't be happier. With 2 inputs, I can handle my modest setup, which includes an apple T V, video-game, and the TV itself, obviously.
Unfortunately, it looks like the price on these has been going up, lately. Probably because there wasn't a huge amount f these made...
I'm going to take care of these for a long time. I'm sure these'll be regarded as classics some day.
Anyway, I plugged these bad boys into my iMac, and with everything turned up, I was let down by the total volume they could output. I haven't tested it with other setups yet, so I'll edit this post when I do. You can't tell from the pictures, but the passive radiator is on the back of the unit, so be careful when you grab it, or you'll put at few fingers right through it. I'll post a photo of it soon.
My setup is the the optical cable from my iMac to the speakers. They have an auto off feature of some sort that turns it off after being idle. It's nice, but annoying when you click on a video and hear nothing, because they switched off on their own. Minor annoyance, but it saves power. They also don't have a buzz whatsoever, which I can't credit to the optical cable alone. My Bose speakers buzzed when they were idle, and these guys have a true 'silence' when sitting unused. Very well constructed and don't take up as much room as the Klipsch studio speakers, but very slightly more than typical cheapo speakers. Overall, worth the price, and you get more than what you pay for.
I'm not a drum and bass guy or anything, so I'm sure for some there won't be enough bass since there is no seperate sub, but i'm duly impressed with how much tight bass these things put out without a sub. Anyway, I definitely recommend them. Only have had them for an hour, but already that impressed.
Audyssey is famous for their software algorithms present in many home theatre receivers, etc. The LES Media Speakers are part of their three-pronged attack on the compact audio market; the other two parts being their Audio Dock and Audio Dock Air. These also come in a wireless model now as well. The speakers are large by desktop speaker standards, the first indication of the quality and capability of the hardware put together by Audyssey. This is because each speaker contains a tweeter, 3-inch woofer, and even larger passive radiator, which is extensively monitored by Audyssey's software expertise in sound processing. The resulting sound is thick, but detailed, with a slightly recessed, though still prominent midrange. The tweeters can sizzle a bit sometimes, but vocals never seem overly harsh, indicating no peeks in the midrange. The strongest aspects of the LES Media Speaker's performance are the extended bass response, which easily reaches down to 50 hz with aplomb, and the smooth frequency response. Audyssey doesn't quote power, but they are quite loud, rated at 95 db from a distance of 1 meter by Audyssey. So, in closing, the LES Media Speakers look good, don't take up a lot of space, and offer quality audio performance. If you don't have room for a subwoofer or, like me, don't mind letting professionals decide exactly how your audio should sound, at all times, you won't be let down by these desktop speakers.
P.S. I haven't heard the Bose Companion 20's, but it is Bose (not terrible, but you can do much better for the price) and the 20's are only working with one driver per channel. Audyssey's comparable offering offers 2 active and 1 passive driver per side. Food for thought.
