Summary: i bought this to replace an old set of yamaha 2.1, much better sound quality and compact.best 2.1 speaker in this price range. can't go wrong with it. plus you can PM it if you find a better price.
Pros: very good sound quality, decent woofer, conpact
Summary: In this price range, it's hard to beat the M3300SF. Overall, the sound is very good. The only critique I have (as far as sound quality) is the satellites can lack fullness in the midrange giving a 'small' sound. After a few minutes of using them, it got better, but I still notice it in certain songs/midrange frequencies. The satellites could have benefited from a slightly larger enclosure. Other than that, the sound is excellent.
Pros: -Great value (paid ~$77 tax in), -Very detailed, clear and crisp highs without being too harsh on the ears, -Stylish 2-way satellites, -Sub can go fairly low at decent volumes and hits pretty hard, -Sub is made of MDF and has a very solid feel and weight to it
Cons: -Mids could be better, -The 3.5mm PC speaker connector that goes to the PC and serial port connector that goes to the sub is split from the remote and can't be split that far., -Power button is on the sub itself (would've preferred to have it on the remote)
Summary: While this is a good set, you need to remember that you get what you pay for. This system won't sound as good as one of the $200+ systems on the market, nor should you expect it to. However, as a smaller system it does well if you don't have excessive expectations. The sound is crisp and clear, and the bass is decent. For the price it is good value for the money.
Summary: I'm actually very impressed with these speakers. For 56$ I expected the sort-of low-class speakers you normally see at Staples. However, once I turned up the volume (and bass) I was left very happy with my purchase. They easily beat my old Altec Lansing 5.1 Enhanced (by db and quality), which cost more than double back in 2004! I have a set of z5600 that I now use on my home theater so I didn't want to spend too much on computer speakers (like the Z-623).
Summary: For the price, I seriously doubt you will find a 2.1 set that sounds better. Bass, while not earth-shaking, is impressive for the size of the sub, and goes pretty deep. Mids are nice and clear, with good detail and imaging. Highs are a bit lacking; the tweeters seemed almost muted at first listen and aren't as crisp as I would have liked. But for the price, I can't complain. After a couple weeks of listening, the sound improved as the speakers 'broke in'.
Pros: Compact, Inexpensive, Good looks, Great sound for the price, Wired remote
Summary: I just wanted a basic 2.1 replacement for my old Altec Lnasig 2.1 system which well died. I have a hifi set up for serious listening so did not want to spend a lot but still wanted good sound. I like the adjustable subwoofer feature as depending on the track an sample ...I like to tune it. I plan to plan the satellites on a base of Ducseal ( a clay like stuff) as they are pretty light and this will plant them solidly on my desk.
