Summary: I am a long time Altec Lansing fan and have to say this is the biggest piece of S#!T I have ever purchased! Doesn't matter what I connect it to you constantly hear static through the speakers and have to turn the volume control to a ridiculous level to even hear anything at all. That is part one. Part two is for some unknown reason Amazon declares this item as Hazardous material and will not except it as a return, so I am left with a $200 room decoration.
Summary: The speakers are great. If you're a into crystal clear highs, these are for you. Problem, if you need any kind of support from Altec, forget it. I bent the pins on the plug for the volume control, and have been trying to contact the company for a week to find out how I can obtain a replacement. Nobody has responded to me emails and their phone line is has been busy until today. Today, their phone number is just disconnected.
Summary: I was very up on these speakers when I bought them. After I placed the order I read a couple of reviews that scared me concerning a high pitch-irritating, "can't get rid of" noise. I thought that since altec lansing was a decent brand I would keep the faith. When they arrived I noticed they were sorta used but I continued to set them up. The minute I turned them on the pitch was there. Very disturbing for the money.
