Video: Bose® Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Jimmy, Senior Advisor Manager at Crutchfield, had a chance to try out the Bose® Companion® 5 multimedia speaker system in his office. He tells us about the simple setup and his listening experience.
Jimmy: So I'm here to talk about the Bose Companion 5. I've been lucky enough to get a pair in my office to try out and I don't want to return them because they sound awesome and they're really easy to use. That's why I'm hoping I can pull some strings and get to keep them in my office.
So one of the really cool things about the Bose Companion 5 that really shocked me was the stereo separation. I mean, all speakers have stereo separation, but I've heard things through these little speakers that I haven't heard in big, expensive speakers that we have here at work or at home as well.
And the other nice thing about it is the Acoustimass subwoofer. It's there and you can feel the bass but it's not overwhelming. It's not booming and really obnoxious, but it definitely makes a difference.
One of the coolest features is the control pod. And that is a great design because it allows people to pause it quickly, start it back up. It's got the old school rotary knob so you can smoothly turn that up or turn it down, which is really convenient. I have tons of music on my iPod. So if you have an iPhone or any other external device whether it be a CD player or MP3 device, plug it in and out. It's as simple as one cord going in and out like this, or if I just want to blast it I can use the headphone as well because it's got the headphone adapter here. So that's really been convenient. I don't have to mess around, you know, looking for cords or cables 'cause they're all right there — makes life easy — that's always a good thing.
