Trusted Reviews - August 2011 Read the full review

"Mid- and high-end notes are equally well-delivered, coming across with excellent clarity and poise. The overall impact is to allow you to simply sink into your music as into a warm bath, simply letting album after album wash over you like so many soapy suds. The MM-1's are equally at home with the grungy tones of Nirvana as they are with the swinging jive of Frank Sinatra, the haunting melodies of Poe or the striking compositions of Wagner. The MM-1s do an excellent job of making compressed music sound decent. 320kbps MP3s sound great and even the half-dozen 256kbps AAC (iTunes Plus) tracks we have sounded pretty decent. Stepping up to some 24-bit FLACs did reveal extra elements of detail to Beethoven's 9th, among other, similarly epic tracks. The transparency the MM-1s deliver is particularly noteworthy; you can really get a feel for where in the mix each and every element was mastered, whether a cello, a flute, a viola or a xylophone."

"These desktop speakers from B&W offer excellent sound quality in a small form. We don't even want to know whether that DSP is doing some loudness control: the fact is that at any level setting the sound is just astonishingly clear, well balanced and detailed. Dispersion is stunning, the sound being highly consistent almost anywhere roughly in front of the speakers and the imaging is excellent. It opened our eyes to new standards of attainment possible from miniature hi-fi."

The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 are beautifully simple in their design and we can see why they are stocked at the Apple store as they compliment the minimalist design of your iMac perfectly. We tried a range of music genres, and a little gaming and movie watching. The long and short of it is that the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 sound fantastic. The bass sometimes gets a little lost if you throw something really heavy at it, but there is surprising punch to the delivery overall. The MM-1 also manage to deliver at higher volumes without distorting. If you want to quickly and easy improve the audio performance of your computer with something that looks sensational, then you won’t be disappointed with the performance that the MM-1 offers.


The Gadgeteer - October 2010Read the full review

"If you want just about the cleanest, most satisfying listening experience possible from desktop speakers, then you gotta try these. When I first heard the MM-1s, my reviewer mode immediately kicked in and I tried to think of a short, clever description. And one word kept coming back… effortless. And that’s the magic. The MM-1s sound full, warm and accurate with just the right amount of bass without breaking a sweat. Clean, both in sound and design and fastidiously accurate."


PC Advisor - June 2010Read the full review

"The Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 speakers – just 17cm high – are packed with advanced drivers and electronics that put the vast majority of desktop speakers to shame."

"Once you've listened to your music using the MM-1 setup, no desktop speakers will ever sound the same again. To say they're impressive would be like saying the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is a nice bit of drawing. They're jaw-droppingly good. We were astonished by the stereo separation. Where other speakers present a muddled mush of instrument and vocal, the MM-1 picked out each element in the mix and placed it precisely. When we closed our eyes, it sounded as though a miniature version of the band or orchestra to which were listening was sitting on our desk, with each constituent member easily picked out. Whether we listened to Yo-Yo Ma's cello playing Bach, James Blackshaw's intricate guitar work on Litany Of Echoes, or the Kings of Leon blasting out Sex On Fire, the word that sprung to mind was precision."


What Hi-Fi - May 2010Read the full review

"Make no mistake, these are hi-fi speakers – they’re just small. Put someone in a blindfold and sit them at your desk; play Please Read The Letter from the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss collaboration Raising Sand through a pair of B&W MM-1s, and then ask them to tell you what kind of system they’re listening to. Chances are they’ll say many things before they utter the words, “a pair of PC speakers.” These compact, stylish speakers have won an Award for the past two years with good reason."

"It’s no stretch to say the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 speakers are the very best PC speakers we’ve ever used."
