Summary: Why would any company stop producing a great (selling) product only to replace them with mediocre ones? The side (between walls) and bottom margin of my TV is narrow and I can fit these lying down. Now that I'm using these speakers in the living room, I'm running around circles on settling for mediocre speakers to fill in the gap.
I'm an acoustics trained, snob....accidently found these...they're wonderful until the Sub died....still trying to find a replac

Summary: I love clear powerful sound; have Vandersteens for my audio system; but, these 621s were wonderful until the Sub died; understand that the sub has been known to die....and is a weakness; knowing that I called Altec Lansing and had them send me a replacement sub before mine died...then I ended up in the hospital, and I haven't replaced and reconfigured my system; until now; so I bought another set of Altec Lansings but they are the cheap ones without the sub..
Summary: These speakers are quite good, however I am a speaker designer and there are some things that can be done to make them better. Many designers use reverse phase on tweeter and woofers to make their speakers measure better. This design degrades the sound, due to reverse absolute polarity. In this case the tweeters and subwoofer are wired out of phase with the midrange. Reverse these two and you have a really great sounding system.
Summary: I bought these just looking for a speaker system for my desktop at a reasonable price with decent power. I was a little disappointed by the size of the speakers. That is.. until i turned them on. The highs and the lows on this system is incredible. The mids definitely need some work but are worth every single penny. I've had my system for more than 3 years and its still running great. Just don't overdo it and take care of em.. remember.. these are computer speakers..
Summary: I saw those other sexy little Altec Lansing speakers in the store, but they really sounded poor. I also listened to these and was sold. The sound on this system is unbelievable - comparable with any decent stereo speaker set, great low end base, high end tweeter, and they have mid range cones in them to cover the in between. I still don't get the remote, at least make it wireless, I would rather just not have a remote.
Summary: I purchased these speakers a week ago and they sound better each day. This a great complement considering that from the first day I was unable to imagine how they could possibly sound any better. These speakers replaced a set of four of top of the line Boston Accoustics. I thought they sounded good until I heard these speakers. I prefer rock & roll played loud and this set of speakers deliver magnificently.
Summary: Wow! WOW!! These speakers are just simply beyond belief. They make listening to your computer and watching DVD's an other worldly experience. I've had many different types of speakers in my computing life and these are simply by far the best. ...
