Very stylish set of speakers, lacking in the mid department

H. Brand "MadMax", Amazon
29 September 2004
  • Summary: 73Watt RMS continuous and 100 Watt RMS Peak sounds great. Speakers really have a great look to them. Don't take up much space at all. Decent Base and treble, though the mid range department is a lil lacking.. YOu might find yourself tweaking your card or software equalizers to produce a decent mid range sound. Luckily I have additional Mid range speakers connected to this system to compensate for this (using a Channel Splitter) I am def.

Great Speakers

C. Hayward, Amazon
20 June 2004
  • Summary: I love these speakers. They're extremely easy to set up since they come with color-coded cables and everything is clearly marked. Once they're set up, they have great sound and excellent bass. Bass is sparse in cheaper speaker systems, but these have plenty of punch. They sound great, and work well for movies too. Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend them.

Well worth the price

Michael J. Telanoff, Amazon
15 June 2004
  • Summary: Well, I found these on ebay for $90 including shipping, and received them today. The sound is excellent. Much better than my mini-stereo system I use upstairs with the tv/dvd. There are entire instruments that I hear now listening to music that were not picked up at all on my old creative labs system. Unlike most systems designed to be used with a computer, the midrange is quite strong.

More disappointed than pleased...

P. Ferdinand "pumkin54", Amazon
17 January 2004
  • Summary: I purchased these speakers back in September 2003. I had previously owned the Altec Lansing ATP3 3-Piece Speaker System and was immensely pleased with it. I wanted to upgrade, go surround-sound, and add more speakers for larger sound. Since I'd had good experience with Altec Lansing before, I chose them again over Logitech and Creative, and expected good quality from them. My first gripe: too much bass. The subwoofer is overpowering.

altec 5100 speakers

C. Hayward, Amazon
27 September 2003
  • Summary: The Altec Lansing 5100 speakers are excellent. They are stylish and compact with good sound and more than adequate power. The control module allows a multitude of adjustments (the headphone jack is on the back of the module but this isn't really an issue). The speaker market seems to be divided between low-end and high-end with very little in the middle. These speakers fit the bill nicely. Highly recommended.
