Summary: As many other reviewers have reported the same, the subwoofer began to emit a constant loud humming noise even when all input wires are disconnected. I purchased the system new on Amazon on Nov 1, 2012. Today is Sept 10, 2013. The product is supposed to be warrantied for 1 year.
Summary: I got these because they were cheap and well reviewed, and I needed some good music for get togethers at my apartment. I listen casually with these - mainly cleaning the kitchen etc. but for small parties (<60 ppl) these are actually great. I'd rank sound reproduction as a 7-8.
Summary: I just got these speakers in the mail today and because I only paid $35 for these guys, I wasn't expecting much. They had gotten pretty good reviews, but come on.....$35 bucks, how good could they be. "HOLY COW!!!" I can't believe what I"m hearing.
Summary: I wish there was a "zero" star option. These speakers worked fine out of the box. They just started buzzing after 5 hours of use. The buzzing stopped if you turned off the speakers for a few hours, but they were back in no time after use resumed.
Stay away -- Altec will not honor warranty when bought from Amazon

Summary: Shame on Amazon for selling a product with no warranty. My cable broke, I wrote to Altec. Here is what I got: Barb L, Jan 29 01:18 pm (EST): Hi Wenigr, Our Warranty Coverage is detailed below. All requested documents are required and mandatory for replacement of any potentially defective product.
Summary: I received the Altec Lansing set about a week ago. My right speaker now has so much static it makes listening to music aggravating. I'm returning it as soon as I receive my new set (I ordered ). I was shocked by the packaging - A small box contained in a large box.
