Recommended, but be aware the company, Altec, has been sold off, complicating customer service.

Summary: Speakers sound great. The volume pod has silly lights that have a random or chasing pattern when you are not adjusting the volume. I really wish there was a way to disable that. The manual that comes with the speakers mentions a link to their website where you can register the product for a warranty...
Summary: I read the other reviews before I bought these. I decided to buy them despite the negative reviews. These things are monsters. With a little tuning, I had these rattling pictures off the walls. The highs are fantastic, very clear.
Summary: It sounded pretty good, but after two months, the main unit stopped sending output to one speaker. It is not that the speaker is bad, but the output port stopped working so that whichever speaker I plug into that port, stops emitting any sound.
Summary: These speakers are awesome!!! I got them in July for my birthday a few months ago. I use them daily. My wife saw the sub and said "Oh no!... You are going to disturb the neighbors!" (She was right!) They are not perfect, so only four stars (would be 4.5, if that were an option).
Summary: These speakers are amazing, I can remember when you have to pay $1500 plus for this kind of sound and the speakers would have to be huge. The bass that comes out of these even at low volume is insane, I had to turn the bass setting down when I first hooked them up.
Summary: I bought this system because I thought my Bose system was dying. It turned out to be the motherboard. Bought a new system. I have both plugged in now. These cables are a little short to spread out like I want. Sorry my Bose is a better and louder sound system.
Summary: I bought these speakers almost a year and a half ago, and I've decided it's time I write a review. This has been one of the best purchases I've ever made, the sound quality, loudness, appearance, everything about the system is fantastic.
