Summary: These babies replaced my Full deck 2 column, 3 way pioneer set. Supposedly computer speakers, they do far better. But one thing is very important - if you just plug them in, and listen to them straight away, you may be mistaken that sound has a canned feeling or low quality.
Summary: By far the BEST 2.1 Speaker system out there PERIOD! Dont be fooled by others this system rocks. Purchase it refurbished on Amazon for $175!!! Got it and I did the simple install, turned on my computer and played my favorite cd and I was blown away!
Summary: I purchased a set of these speakers after carefull consideration for my girlfriend. The controller for the volume both remote and hard wired lasted all of one day before failing. I promptly contacted Altec Lansing and they promised to send me replacement parts.
Summary: I'm confused about two things: 1.Ratings of less than 4 stars for these speakers and 2. Ratings of more than 3 stars for the Logitech Z2300. My first choice for new computer speakers was the Logitech, based on good reviews and price. They were back in the box in less than fifteen minutes.
Summary: What a great set of speakers! They are accurate and uncolored, and are a quantum leap above all of the other computer speakers to which I have listened. Through experimenting, I have found that the equalizer in iTunes is the most effective way to balance the sound instead of the hard wired tone...
Summary: I give this product 5 stars for aesthetics and built quality,4 for front speakers and 1 for subwoofer. I keep in mind the fact I'm listening to a sub $200 audio system to be used on my desk top pc. When I want to listen to audiophile quality music I turn to my high end system in the family room.
Summary: Having owned several top-rated small hi-fi speakers in the below $400 category, I concurred with other reviewers that these speakers are exceptionally smooth for its price. Within its dynamic range, it has a transparent open sound balanced by a slightly over-warm bass--not altogether unpleasant.
