Summary: Well, I am not going to add anything new. You must have read the same stuff written by other happy users and the reason I am writing this review is to support all good things written about this speaker system. I bought this easily about 12 years ago and this system has served me well and it still runs perfectly up until today! Totally amazing!
Big stereo sound in a itty bitty PC speaker package!

Summary: I originally bought new from a national retailer to replace the cheapies that came with my PC about seven years ago, they have survived two PCs and are still going strong. They have an unbelievable sound that rivals most of my other stereo equipment. I use them in the bedroom to play all the music from my PC. They have excellent clarity, deep, rich bass and plenty of volume. I like them so much I'm looking for a second pair to put on my other PC.
Summary: Altec Lansing made a great model here. I thought this system was so good I bought another one for my second computer. Clear top frequencies and deep, deep bass contribute to a full and round sound that is very very clear. The sound equals my big stereo set, with its big amp and wooden acoustic-suspension speaker unit. There are limits to its volume, but can do a lot with its 40 watts and it is fully capable of filling a room with orchestral tracks and is great with jazz.
Summary: If you’re the type of person who desires more power out of your speakers than sound quality, then the ATP3W's probably aren't for you. Only packing 6 watts a piece, the satellite speakers have much better sound quality than power. Each satellite contains two 28mm tweeters, a bottom-firing 3 in "mid-bass" speaker, and the right satellite houses separate volume, bass and treble controls.
Summary: There is nothing I can say bad about the system. The construction, design, and operation are excellent and even better considering the money involved. I would highly recommend them to anyone who asked.
Summary: These are great computer speakers. Incredible bass and highs. I've cranked these speakers over and over and they are indestructible. You can't do better for the money! You may be able to buy better computer speakers, I don't know. But, I know that you would have to pay a lot more.
Summary: For the money these speakers are very good performers they include 2EA:1" forward firing tweeters(total of 4);1ea:2" downward firing midrange spkr(total of 2);plus 1 6&1/2" downward firing subwoofer in it's own cabinet this should be located on the floor (not on PC desktop):be sure that the subwoofer is not placed on carpet or other soft surface: the downward firing cabinet design is also dependent on the reflected sound as well as the point of origin from the...
