While these desktop speakers are tiny, they offer a full-size experience. Two, unique, custom-developed desktop satellite speakers produce an amazingly rich sound, far more immersive than you'd expect from such small speakers. These are backed by a compact subwoofer that fills out bass notes beautifully.

And the entire package is purpose built to work at its best with digital music from your computer, simply and straight out of the box. The desktop control hub lets you control power and volume and switch between USB for laptop or desktop computers and 3.5mm for smartphones, tablets and even TV.

The M5 – small desktop speakers, brilliantly rounded sound and all the connections you need to make your computer's music sing.



In more detail

Serious subwoofer – A 200mm square sub, small enough to tuck just about anywhere, means the stunning performance of our satellites is backed by richly detailed, bottom end bass. The combination fills rooms with ease.

“Sound First” design principles – By focussing solely on the things that make music sound so good, and cutting out any extra cost and clutter, we aim to deliver the best-sounding, best-value small system you’ll ever hear.


Desktop connection hub –Our handy wired volume remote also doubles as an easy access connection hub. Plug in and simply switch between laptop and desktop computers (USB – works with PCs and Macs) and smartphones, tablets and even your TV (3.5mm socket). There's also a handily placed headphone socket for solo listening.

Everything you need –In the M5's box there’s also a power cable, speaker cables, 3.5mm jack audio cable, USB cable and integrated stands for the desktop satellite speakers.

Eco-friendly –<1W standby power consumption.


Computer Active

"The best speakers we've ever heard. Crucially, sound quality is superb. Rather than relying on your computer's sound card, these speakers have one built in. This really makes sound shine, producing rich and vibrant audio whether you're listening to music or watching a film. "

PC Pro

"Sound quality is excellent: the satellites are bright and clear, while the subwoofer provides plenty of low-end grunt for tuneful basslines. For desk-bound audiophiles, the M5s are more than up to the job."
