Summary: I don't do games on this particular computer, that's why I haven't mentioned anything gammer wise - but these speakers are definitely more musical than I expected, I've found myself popping in CD after CD - the upper end isn't reference, though I don't think that detracts much, if at all - yeah you...
Pros: Better system than I expected, only had them set up for about a day but there's no doubt about the quality of the sound. I'm not using them in my hi end rig, yet, but needless to say, with this computer which doesn't have a dedicated sound card, setting all of the computer EQ settings to flat and...
Cons: Like the other reviewers - I think the missing 1/8" plug/wire set for a computer is ridiculous especially considering what these cost - and they're only a 2.1 set up - I guess it's not that big a deal, but come on Altec Lancing.
Summary: I have this set and I also have the Bose Companion 5 multimedia speaker system. I must say that I was surprised that these speakers go louder and have more base. I must admit that the Bose system does not have any noise though while this system gets a lot of noise at the very high volume.
Pros: Visually attractive, affordable, and most of all, very loud sound and strong base.
Cons: Sound gets static on high volume and no direct connection to PC.
Conclusion: Techgage has the distinction of being the first to publish a review of Altec LansingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s newest high-end 2.1 powered loudspeaker system. Currently, only one online store carries the PT6021, and thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dell.com (which has had a long working relationship with Altec Lansing).
Pros: Rich, detailed sound, Ease of operation, Lack of distortion, Aesthetics
Cons: High price, Recessed midrange, Did not include a 3.5mm hookup cable
