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.
MM-1s aren't like most 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.
The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 Speakers bring true hi-fi quality sound to your desktop, giving your Mac the audio enhancement it deserves. The MM-1 have two drivers, one dedicated to bass and midrange frequencies and another for the treble, so they deliver accurate sound just like full-size speakers.
The MM-1 tweeters incorporate a tube-loaded design, which dampens resonance and produces purer high frequency sounds. By adjusting the sound balance depending on the signal, these speakers keep bass effects powerful and music sounding rich and detailed, no matter how loud you play it.
You can stream audio directly from your Mac via USB, with your MM-1 speakers acting like an external sound card, to give you the best possible audio quality.
MM-1 speakers are true hi-fi speakers, shrunk to fit on your desktop. They don't just look great, they sound great too, transforming your computer into a superb stereo sound system. The beautifully designed infrared remote controls the basic functions of the MM-1 and iTunes, so you can play and pause, and skip tracks forward or back from almost anywhere in the room.
