Pros and Cons

  • Summary: I bought these to replace my old 4.1 Klipsch system that sounded like pure magic while they lasted. The Klipsch system had control pod problems and the rubber around the sub speakers died a horrible death. I couldn't see shelling the bucks like I did for the Klipsch system again so I heard some good reviews on these Altec speakers and had to give them a try. Pro's - Easy set up, good volume and fairly clear, attractive design. Nice bass response for a mid price system.

  • Summary: This 2.1 system performs as I expected a system at this price point would in terms of audio quality. 2.1 computer systems tend to be marketed towards gaming, such that an immersive experience with visceral bass is what they're designed for, and this system delivers on those counts. Additionally, the tweeters provide a surprising amount of detail in the high frequencies, so much so that I can imagine some users might find it a bit harsh (although I just kind of learned to...
  • Pros: Great tweeters, powerful bass, decent design
  • Cons: Constant hiss, awkward controls, muddy bass.

I expected more from Altec Lansing

  • Summary: I'm 54 years old and I wasn't looking for big bone rattling bass like most younger people today, but I also didn't think I would have to set my iPod EQ to the bass setting to get decent bottom end sound. For these speakers to sound good you need a full equalizer with at least 5 bands. If you use them with a pc you can get good sound from them (unfortunately I'm not). The bass and treble adjustment is awkward at best.

MX6021 - Disappointing for the price

MG, Amazon
6 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchaced this because of the other reviews commenting on the clarity and quality of the sound these produce, and because of the stlyish design. Having looked around at various reviews on the net, some were very positive and some were not. Those that weren't mentioned: - too pricy for the quality of sound - bass weak and distorts at high volume - high end too harsh and tinny while the mid range is weak and almost not present - cables are too short - speakers hiss when...

great sound but cables too short

  • Summary: About the sound, it's great, but there's a continuous electrical hum. When music runs you won't hear it but when there's no sound I've to shut the system down to get rid of this. But the lenght of the cable are really short. By placing the sub under the desk, it's only possible to reach one of the speaker. The other side of the monitor is too far...
