New Bose® Companion® 20 multimedia speaker system

The Best Two-Piece Computer System from Bose

Bose has introduced the Companion® 20 multimedia speaker system, delivering a new level of performance for two-piece computer speaker systems. Now, users can enjoy lifelike, natural sound whether sitting at the keyboard or across the room, and without the need for a separate subwoofer.

“Millions of consumers have computers in the home today, and they’re used for both work and play,” said

Lino Pucci, Computer Speaker Product Line Manager, Bose Corporation. “The Companion® 20 system is sleek and unobtrusive, but its size doesn’t compromise the audio quality or power it delivers. It’s ideal for anyone whose computer is the go-to device in the house for listening to their favourite radio stations over the internet, or enjoying their games, videos or iTunes playlist.”

The Companion® 20 system features a new driver and advanced port to reproduce music across the full frequency range. Combined with proprietary electronics and amplification, owners will experience the deep low notes and volume levels of larger systems, but from enclosures only 8.9cm (3.5”) wide by 11.1cm (4.375”) deep. Each speaker fits neatly to the right and left of a laptop or monitor, yet a sophisticated implementation of Bose TrueSpace® stereo digital signal processing expands the acoustic image. The perceived soundstage is wide and spacious, even with the speaker’s narrow placement.

Additional proprietary digital signal processing and active electronic equalization ensures accurate sound reproduction. At the highest listening levels, there’s no distortion and when played quietly, music still can be heard with detail and realism.

The new Companion® 20 system operation is made easy with a small, circular control pod that lets users adjust volume and access one-touch muting. It also offers a headphone jack and input for an additional audio source, including an iPhone, iPod or other portable device.

The Companion® 20 system joins four other Bose computer speaker solutions: the Companion® 2 system, providing a simple yet high-quality two-speaker upgrade for computers or portable devices; the

Companion® 3 system, reproducing rich stereo performance from a three-speaker configuration; the

Companion® 5 system, delivering much of the performance of a fully wired five-speaker system from two satellite speakers and an Acoustimass® module; and the Computer MusicMonitor®, the smallest, most compact two-piece system from Bose.

The Companion® 20 multimedia speaker system is available in silver from Bose for the recommended retail price of £199.00 and sold at authorised Bose resellers, Bose retail stores and at www.bose.co.uk
