Summary: Throw a decent sound card or DAC behind these and you will be more than surprised at what they are capable of.....I got five or six good years out of them not bad for what I paid. Altec Lansing outdid themselves with these, if you find it, buy it. Trust me.
Quality made speakers with the best sound of any in their category

Summary: These speakers are awesome with so many convenient features others don't offer. The sound is superb, rivaling that of a large stereo system! The large sub woofer (which also has the amplifier inside) is well designed accoustically with large air port to allow booming bass.
Summary: I bought these for my boyfriend who LOVES to play his music LOUD!!! and with these he can....at His house! When we turned the up in my apartment, I said "those have eviction notice written all over them...LOL" But he lives in a more rural setting than I do so they are great for him.
Summary: I bought this system to use with my tv instead of a surround system. It has nice high tones and the sub sounds ok. The mid range is lacking though. Some of the lower tones out of sub sound cheated. Some clipping too. The remote is nice but very small.
Summary: I have had mine for several years now. I bought this a few years ago. I am just now doing the review, I like the fact it does not take much for the volume to be loud. I did not know the speakers could be that powerful.
Summary: This is the second set I purchased after my first burn out after many years of constant use. The highs the two speakers can reach without distortion is pretty impressive as is the amount of bass the subwoofer generates!
Summary: I've had these speakers for about two years. But the power control button on the speaker's broken shortly after a few weeks, so I have to use the remote control power button to turn it on and off. It still works ok until today.
Summary: Love the speaker system. Have it hooked up to my TV's headphone jack. Lots of sound, nice bass, and the speaker design is really cool. The little wireless remote is so cool. It was the reason I bought the system. I was worried that I was going to lose it tho.
