Summary: The speakers sound fine in my office. The problem is that any substantial vibration on the desk turns the sound off. There's a problem in the volume dial, which I discovered when it was too late to return the system. It's very annoying to have to tap the dial to restore volume.
Summary: This is not a particularly great sounding set of speakers, but, hey, you don't get great sound for $49 (guess I caught them on sale). The intended use was to supplement the built-in speakers on my TV.
Summary: For over a decade I have had a Monsoon speaker/subwoofer system attached to my computer(s). Recently one of the channels has gotten flaky. I saw this Altec-Lansing system on Amazon for a remarkable price.
