Summary: I actually bought these speakers from someone on craigslist a few years ago, but I love them and thought I should write a review. Like some of the other reviewers, I experienced the faint clicking sound after I first got the speakers.
Great speaker system -- I'm buying my second one now!

Summary: I bought these speakers because I needed a relatively cheap replacement for my old set, and I've been consistently happy with its sound quality. After two years of use, the volume control knob has picked up an annoying quirk -- there are patches on the knob where the volume jumps to max.
Summary: These are my favorite desk speakers I've owned. I've had them for a couple years now and haven't regretted my purchase. Their sound quality surpasses their price and I would even dare to say they encroach a bit on Bose territory for desk speakers in the pure "audio quality" department.
Summary: Very crisp clean trebel. Bass is tight and for my ears I need to boost the 30-60Hz range by 3 dB (this is with the subwoffer in the detent midrange position) I use almost no Bass boost on the low end and no high end boost for normal casual listening.
Summary: I just got the Altec Lansing speakers and they sound just fine. I am glad I saved money and got decent speakers for a decent price. As for the wifi "interference", yes, it exists if my router is within about 5 feet of the set.
