Bose Companion 5: 2.1 surround sound for computers

Bose Companion 5 Speakers

Surround sound is a frequently touted feature for computer speakers. Nevertheless, the likelihood of its use in most regular computer setups is slim: there is rarely any room for the rear satellites in a home office or college dorm, which turns most surround systems into overpowered two-channel speakers. Bose is offering a solution in the form of its new Companion 5 speakers. In combination with a processor that automatically converts multi-channel audio, two uniquely-shaped satellites bounce the audio in multiple directions to create a convincing surround sound effect. A subwoofer provides low-end bass response. The Companion 5 connects through USB, works with both Macs and Windows PCs, and ships September 7th for $399.
