Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 desktop speakers

Actually, I prefer the Apple Pro Speakers because they are quite powerful (2x10W) for what I want on my desk, but most importantly because they are so tiny and easy to clean from dust. I wish Apple or Harman Kardon would release them again for the new Macs.
But this Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) MM-1 is the second in the list. Thanks for the information.

These seem really nice and I like that there is no bulky subwoofer. Having used Apple Pro Speakers with Griffin iFire for many years I know that a subwoofer is NOT necessary for good computer sound. (My Griffin iFire broke and I'd love to get decent speakers again.)

I have the A2s and am looking to upgrade.
I love the sound of each, but they're intended for different listening experiences. The A5s are meant to fill a room with sound and do their best when you're several feet away from them. I think the A2s, even with their size, also sound better from a few feet away. While the MM-1s are decent from across the room, they're intended for near-field listening.
As for the tonal character, the A5s have a lot more oomph in the low end. And they're louder.
