The Duet II 2.0 (3.5 mice) speakers stand out aesthetically, with each 10.4-inch-tall speaker comprising a thin, football-shaped body atop a 4-inch-wide base. The Duet II provides only a single audio input; if you want to connect your iPod and your computer without switching back and forth, you’ll need to get a switchbox of some sort. When it comes to audio quality, the Duet II are limited at the low end but sound pretty good otherwise, with detailed treble and clear, quality midrange. Without those lower frequencies, the lower midrange can sound a bit light, and on some tracks the treble can sound a bit too prominent, but overall I was surprised by how enjoyable the system was to listen to once I got past the lack of bass.
