CNET reviewed the JBL Duet II PC speakers earlier this year and had some good things to say about them, though we did think they were a little short on bass. Now we got our hands on the step-up model, the Duet III, which offers the same design but the speakers are blown up in size by about 25 percent. The package includes zeppelin-shaped speakers measuring 4.6 inches by 4.6 inches by 12 inches (the Duet IIs are 10.5 inches tall). Their fronts have a metallic silver mesh (read: cloth) covering the speaker grilles while their backs have a glossy black finish. They're attractive, modern looking, and go particularly well with iMac models that feature an aluminum finish. The speakers themselves are fairly lightweight--the left speaker weighs in at 1 pound, 3.5 ounces and the left at 1 pound, 6.5 ounces--but they're not totally unsubstantial. JBL has conveniently placed a volume control on the top of the right speaker that when turned all the way to the left, shuts off the speaker. As Jasmine France noted in her review of the Duet IIs, the Duet series has kind of a funky cable set up. She describes it as such: "Coming off the left speaker alone, you have three cables: one for power, one to attach to the right speaker, and one for the audio source.
