Well, I went and splurged on good speakers for the computer. I figure I spend a lot of time at the computer and now with the new speakers I don’t want to leave it. Not quite life changing but, nice and good quality so should last many years.
The sound is really good even with headphones plugged in. My only comment is that the stereo image of the instruments isn’t really distinct.
They connect via USB to the computer as Bose says:
The Companion 5 system features a handy, all-in-one control pod to keep speaker volume control, single-touch mute, headphone jack and an auxiliary input all within easy reach.
