What I really like about iMac aesthetics is that everything fits in or behind the screen - including the speakers - and although they have a good quality sound, sometimes you just can't get the volume, you cannot get the bass and you cannot get the stereo. I've been thinking about adding on speakers for quite a while, and now that Bose have brought out a really good, compact set which are dedicated for computers, I thought I'd go for those - even though they are twice the price of most of the others.
So I wired them in (they will not stay in that position, like sentries either side of the monitor) then selected a variety of testing music and cranked them up full. Tee Hee! Our neighbors will hate us this Christmas!
With some sort of digital gizmo, they get a rich bass sound without a sub-woofer, and that is quite enough for our compact but adorable city apartment. The little round thing on the right is a touch on/off as well as a manual volume control.
It's a bit of a compromise having all that extra wire floating around, but worth it, I reckon. I wonder if Bose will give me a discount for this testimonial?
We'll have to have a party. You'll have to come round.
