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! I dont regret buying this little baby, not one bit and at this price you cant get any better.
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 controls, which I set to flat. The primary limitation on the sound quality is my computer's sound card!
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. Overall the sound is superior to my older "hi-fi" speakers. There is one negative point not mentioned by the other reviewers.
Summary: Kind of bigger than I thought... Makes clear sound and enough bass but not over-amped. Cables are strong and long enough so you can place the satelitte speakers wherever you want. Remote volume control doesn't make linear adjustment... kind of tricky to adjust but I've got used to it.
Summary: First of all - the remote cracked me up big time. Haven't seen a smaller one in my entire life. Remote aside, the speakers produce very pure quality sound and have an appealing design. When playing mp3's you definitely need to have good (CD) quality music not 128kbs. In sum, no complaints, satisfied with the purchase.
Summary: I just got my FX-6021's today, they are replacing my older, cheaper Altec Lansing speakers for my home Computer. The FX6021 sounds wonderful and it looks nice and sleek. It can get pretty loud and still stay clear as ever. One main feature I liked is the RCA inputs on the back of the sub, so you can use it for your PS3 or XBOX 360, I love that! The only thing I didn't like, is the bass.
Summary: I just got these for a sound system at work: if im going to spend my life here why just use the crappy dell speakers? I like these a lot- good response throughout the range with strong bass from the sub (which can thankfully be dialed way down when needed). Could have a stronger mid, but they are not intended to be studio monitors, so it has easily surpassed my expectations. I listen to rock, drum and bass, jazz and house on them.
Summary: This system is just what I needed. It replaces an older Altec Lansing system that finally breathed its last. The old system had nice tone but was essentially unadjustable except for an awkward digital volume control. This new one has a dial (not a push button) that controls both volume and bass/treble. With it I can make the kind of fine adjustments that I need for my audio and video editing.
Summary: I normally listen to music on a very high quality system in the living room. For the last year or so I've also been using a pair of Sennheiser HD-600 headsets while working at my computer. Those are as close to the 'reference' headsets used in recording studios as will still let me hear my sick wife when she needs me. Basically, my standards are high, and these Altec Lansing speakers have not disappointed me.
