Altec Lansing FX4021

PC Magazine
5 March 2007
  • Conclusion: This is a great set of speakers for PC gaming and DVD-watching, and with a little EQ-fiddling, it makes a pretty good pair of music speakers, too.
  • Pros: Deep, thunderous subwoofer. Nice "SFX" function for gamers. Good overall audio quality for music and DVDs. Useful, small remote. Powerful output.
  • Cons: Subwoofer is pretty big. Hard to tell whether "loudness" or "SFX" is selected at times. Mid-high frequencies seem a bit muffled when EQ is flat.

Altec Lansing FX4021 review

4 March 2007
  • Excerpt: This is the best Altec Lansing desktop solution we've heard yet. We don't want to go back to our old one and neither will you.
  • Pros: Good sound fidelity with clear trebles and punchy bass. Conservative design is likely to remain in favour for a few years. Sound Field Xpander works well to help with desktop setups.
  • Cons: Discrete control module is an unnecessary appendage - put it in the speakers next time. Distortion threshold is quite low. Low midrange lacking.
