The Bose 201 speakers are Direct/Reflecting desktop speakers. The design is trim with the 201 being the smallest in the series. Yet they manage to deliver 120 watts per channel. As part of a surround sound system, Bose intended the 201's to serve as background speakers in a home theater system or as stand alone home stero speakers.  A general consensus among some reviewers is that while you get some bang for your buck, the cost to benefit ratio might not justify the price.
