Summary: The sound didn't have the bass quality expected in Altec Lansing speakers. I have two other sets of their speakers and one set has a constant hum and the other set is very good, all in the same price range, under $30 just bought in different years.
Summary: Too small, so small type sound. The "Vibe" brand is similar size and sound, for only about $10.00. Also the "Gearhead" brand is the same, for $20.00 and also the Insignia PCS21 (but plug often breaks inside computer jack). For the classic Altec sound, or what I think, better, is the Cyber Acoustics model 3550. You need room, it is bigger, but sounds wonderful! CA-3488 is inexpensive, so check that out. Limitless Creations have a line that's good.
Summary: I paid $35 for these gems. They have finally reached a level that seems reasonable for this product - $17. These speakers don't hold a candle to the Creative Inspire T12 2.0 speakers ($55 on Amazon). I ordered these Altec apeakers and then winning the T12 speakers on eBay. No question which ones to keep. The Altec BXR1321 speakers are going to the church rummage sale.
Summary: Points positifs : De très belles enceintes, dignes d'Altec Lansing, du point de vue de la finition. Pour un peu plus de puissance, il vaut mieux investir un peu plus, mais l'ensemble est correct. Alimentation USB, ce qui fait qu'elles s'allument et s'éteignent en même temps que l'ordinateur, ce qui est pratique, sans le moindre "brr" sonore lors de la mise sous tension. Evidemment, en USB, la puissance ne fera pas boîte de nuit, mais c'est amplement suffisant.
