Easy to set up and easy to use and the sound is great once you have the right level of bass set in the box. I am using this with my satalite & tv primarily but it also amazing with computer & mp3 players. The sound fills the room and the depth of the output from the three speakers is amazing. In short i would say if you want to improve the quality of the soud you get from your existing equipment then this system is great value for moneyand would recommend it without reservation.
Having read many consumer and journalist reviews i took the plunge on buying this system as i couldn’t justify a 5. 1 set up in my space restricted living room. Easy to set up straight out of the box, it hooked up to the tv with little effort. The sound is amazing, although i wouldn’t expect anything less from a company like bose; and the 2 speakers can really blast it out when it comes to it. Like other users i have noted the humming the sub produces, but with a little bass adjustment this becomes a non-issue. The pod that comes with it is a smooth device, and very sensitive. Through my tv remote i can control the sound coming through the speakers and enhance it even more with the pod (not sure how this works; it must be the tv, as my brother-in-law has this system too and can’t get that set up) as well as hook another device to it such as an ipod or netbook. A fantastic replacement for the meagre speakers you find in flat screens these days, and without the space consumption of a full 5. 1 but capable of just as much.

The single greatest gift i have ever received. I am a harsh critic, but this product is something else. If you’re considering buying these and have read this far — stop. These are worth five times the price. This is not hyperbole, either: i’d genuinely pay £1,000 if i had that sort of money. I want to kiss the people at bose for the endless hours of joy i’ve received from this product. Pros:the bass is truly earth-shattering. Perfect for any music that incorporates bass from the modern genres like dubstep and dnb to the warm and complex bassline of classic rock like roger waters of pink floyd and the genius of paul mccartney on sgt. The astounding thing is the range that the two little speakers provide.
I have had these for a few days got them from comet for £200 good deal the quality is amazing if you play good quality music you can really notice it. The only reason i give them 4 stars not because they are quite exspensive and still would pay probaly £150 if i could for them now but the fact they have very low level buzzing noise when your not playing music or sound which you only notice if you go near them but now i have i pick up on it sometimes and i don’t think its just mine as other people have said this in other reviews.
The speakers they are of course very expensive but preform very well, as well as using with the tv i can plug my ipod in and listen to my favourite tunes and being a bit hard of hearing have found them a great benifit.
Bose ® Companion 3 Multimedia Speaker System : I bought these speakers to compliment my blu ray movies, connected to the tv via the headphone socket. The small speakers are unobtrusive but deliver sounds that are simply superb. The bass is taught and doesn’t distort no matter how loud they go. I was so impressed i bought a second set to play my music on the pc. The improvement is awesome i’m hearing things on cd i’ve not heard before. If music is important to you then these speakers are a essential purchase, the old adage that you get what you pay for is true. Expensive but worth every penny, they have made my stereo redundant .
