Features

From user to listener
MM-1s aren’t like other computer speakers. They’re true hi-fi speakers, shrunk to fit on your desktop. So they don’t just look great – they sound amazing, transforming your computer into a superb hi-fi stereo sound system. But then you’d expect nothing less from the makers of the award-winning Zeppelin iPod speaker, not to mention some of the most advanced studio speakers in the world.

Hi-fi sound on your computer
Once they were for filling out spreadsheets and typing letters. Now computers are used for almost everything: socialising, playing games, listening to music, watching videos. So it seems a shame that deskbound entertainment fans have always had to make do with sub-standard audio, either from a computer's built-in speakers or poor quality monitors. No longer. MM-1 brings true hi-fi quality sound to your desktop for the first time, giving your computer the audio it deserves.

Full-range sound
Most computer speakers have to make do with just one drive unit to handle the full spectrum of frequencies. Not so with the MM-1. Just like a full-size speaker, it has two drivers, one dedicated to bass and midrange frequencies and another for the treble. So there’s a reason why MM-1 reproduces sound with the accuracy of a true hi-fi speaker: that's exactly what it is.

Near-field monitors
All hi-fi set ups have a sweet spot - the area in the listening space where music sounds at its best. With full size hi-fi , that area is usually some distance away from the speakers. So we've made some electronic adjustments to the MM-1 to make sure the sweet spot is where you are: a few feet from the computer screen. You'll always be right in the middle of the action.

Nautilus tube-loaded tweeters
Some of our most pioneering technology has found its way into the MM-1. The tweeters, for example, incorporate the tube-loaded design we first developed for our famous Nautilus™ speakers, which dampens resonance and produces purer high frequency sounds. You’ll find the same technology in our studio-standard speakers, used by the likes of Abbey Road Studios.

Digital Signal Processing
There’s an art to producing a big sound from small speakers. And we’ve mastered it, thanks to a clever piece of electronic fine-tuning called Digital Signal Processing. By adjusting the sound balance depending on the signal, DSP keeps bass effects powerful and music sounding rich and detailed, no matter how loud you play it.

High-quality headphone output
MM-1 makes private listening a pleasure, thanks to its high-quality headphone output. When you plug your headphones directly into the speakers, the audio from your computer is enhanced by high quality DACs used in the MM-1, producing a sound that’s a noticeable improvement over the standard PC or Mac headphone output.

USB audio streaming
Computer speakers normally have to rely on the wildly varying quality of the computer's analogue output signal. MM-1 is different. It streams audio directly from your computer via USB and converts the signal from digital to analogue internally. So you'll always get the best possible audio quality, independent of the computer output.

        Comments about Bowers & Wilkins Black Hi-Fi Computer Speakers:

        I've owned several computer speakers over the years, but for simple low to moderate volume listening, these speakers are excellent. I've turned the Bass Boost setting ON for my PC because at lower volumes it adds just the right amount of low end. Sound is balanced and high quality. Connection cords could be longer. I had to connect the Right speaker as my left given PC location, but that was not a problem.

        Comments about Bowers & Wilkins Black Hi-Fi Computer Speakers:

        Small size was surprising when unpacking, making me nervous.
        Plugged them in, sat down in the "sweet spot", went to my recorded i-Tunes, selected Hendrix: 'Hear my train coming, live', turned it up to "7", closed my eyes, and smiled. There are sound nuances here that were far less audible before. Separation, blending, instrument and vocal depth, clarity and purity. Even the raw parts seemed to make more sense. Truly.
        Followed that sample with Charlie Hunter Duo: 'You don't know what love is', and felt the anguish in the notes.
        So, expensive but thrilling. And, the sweet spot is much larger than other folks have said. My 10'x12' office, in total, sounds great. Buy them.
