Christmas may still feel comfortably far away, but retail and customer service managers are hiring now for their Christmas holiday work force. In fact, many big box retailers break the season into Holiday I, Holiday II and Holiday III zones, and the first of those marketing zones starts next week. Retail managers want their holiday staff trained and ready to go long before Black Friday.
I know I’m beginning to sound a bit like the Old Spice Man, but hyperbole aside, the MM-1 has to be the best looking computer speaker on the market. It’s not outlandish, neither does it draw attention to itself. It’s sleek, elegant, and looks incredibly graceful. There is just one word to describe its looks: classy. I would’ve bought them just to stare at them for hours, even if they didn’t produce the tiniest smidgen of sound.
When you install your own home theater, you have a lot of options as to what equipment to buy. You can purchase a “home theater in a box” setup which provides you with everything you need. This is a great idea of you don’t know what components you want or you simply want the convenience of one stop shopping and the assurance that all your components will fit and work together.

As a 2.0 system, the MM-1 sits small. Each speaker is just 6.7 inches high and 3.9 inches wide. Each unit includes a 3 inch woofer and a 1-inch tweeter. On the right speaker, you’ll find four 18-watt Class D amplifiers – two for the right speaker, two for the left. You can connect the B&W MM-1 to your computer via a USB cable. To make the system “audiophile proof”, the USB cable runs through a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that increases the output of the woofers and smoothens out the sound.
