The Bose Companion 3 is a sturdily built three-piece sound system that provides premium quality stereo performance. These multimedia speakers are a good choice for those looking for a computer sound system that offers a sparkling and spacious sound and delivers enough volume and a decent bass output to satisfy any listener. The Companion 3 sound system comes with silver-and-graphite satellite desktop speakers that are stylishly designed, yet do not occupy much desktop space, making it ideal for those living in small spaces. These satellite speakers are also magnetically-shielded to keep the sound system safe from damage, due to magnetic media. The Companion 3 uses TrueSpace technology that broadens the sound field giving users a richer acoustic environment for a better listening experience. Moreover, this technology also allows the sound system to automatically fine-tune the tonal balance and lessen distortion to provide a clean, expansive output. In addition, this Bose multimedia system also has a proprietary compact Acoustimass module that provides fullness and depth to low frequencies. This module can be easily hidden under the computer desk, providing more usable desk space for users. The computer sound system also comes with a touch-sensitive control pod that is designed with a single-touch mute control and a smooth volume-adjustment ring. The puck-shaped tethered controller also has a headphone jack and an auxiliary input for MP3 players and smartphones to provide more versatility and options for audio sources.
