MM-1 Powered Speakers: The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 powered speakers bring
true hi-fi quality sound to your desktop or laptop computer, transforming your
computer into a hi-fi stereo sound system. The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 powered
speakers are ideal for enjoying music, video, and games from your computer.
Full-Range Sound: The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 is equipped with two
drivers; one dedicated to bass and midrange frequencies, and another for the
treble. Each speaker features a 3.0" woofer and 1.0" tweeter. The MM-1 is
powered by an 18-watt x 4-channel integrated amplifier. This is how the MM-1 can
reproduce sound with the accuracy of a true hi-fi speaker (38Hz to 22,000Hz).
Nautilus Tube-Loaded Tweeters: The MM-1's tweeters incorporate the
tube-loaded design, Bowers & Wilkins first developed for their famous
Nautilus speakers, which dampens resonance and produces purer high frequency
Near-Field Monitors: All hi-fi setups have a sweet spot, the area in
the listening space where music sounds at its best. The MM-1 is designed
primarily as a near-field monitor, ideal for listening to music while at your
computer. The Bower's & Wilkins MM-1 speakers have been electronically adjusted
to provide its best sound just a few feet away from your computer screen, so you
have the best seat in the house.
Digital Signal Processing: Thanks to built-in Digital Signal
Processing, the MM-1 can produce big sound from a small speaker. 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.
Dynamic EQ: The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 speakers provide powerful bass
thanks to its Dynamic EQ technology which maximizes bass output.
USB Audio Streaming: Computer speakers normally have to rely on the
varying quality of the computer's analogue output signal. The Bowers & Wilkins
MM-1 is different. It streams audio directly from your computer via USB (2.0)
and converts the signal from digital to analogue internally. So you will always
get the best possible audio quality, independent of the computer output.
PC and Mac Compatible: The Bowers & Wilkins powered speakers perform
equally well with either a Mac or Microsoft computer, through its USB 2.0 input.
The MM-1 features a mini-USB type-B port, and comes with a mini-USB type-B to
USB type-A cable to connect to your computer.
Auxiliary Input: The MM-1 speakers also features an 3.5mm auxiliary
input, and comes with a stereo minijack cable to connect your digital music
player or CD player.
Remote Control: Thanks to the MM-1's ergonomic, pebble-shaped IR
remote, you will have complete control over your speakers, as well as iTunes or
Windows Media Player, from anywhere in the room. The remote operates off of a
single CR2032 3V lithium battery (included).
High-Quality Headphone Output: The MM-1 makes private listening also
possible, thanks to its high-quality headphone output (3.5mm). 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 is a
noticeable improvement over the standard PC or Mac headphone output.
