Subwoofer has some kick to it though and overall I am happy with it

Summary: As some other reviewers have claimed it can be a bit muddled. I suspect this is due to the downfiring midrange in the left and right speaker. Subwoofer has some kick to it though and overall I am happy with it. Maybe adding a flared underside to where the midrange is would help with muddy sound.
Summary: This system sounds very good. I owned a similar Altec Lansing system for over ten years and thought it very good, as well. If I hadn't damaged a plug on the subwoofer I would still have it today. The old system was designed better in that the speaker cones were protected.
Summary: The speakers arrived in a timely fashion and were very properly packaged. Upon, opening the speakers, I was impressed by the unique design and the build quality of all the parts. Set up was quick and easy.
Summary: This is a somewhat higher end speaker. It offers full range sound and rich mids. Only problem is that the subwoofer is way too loud. If you're a base head you would DEAFINATLY love this speaker, but for me, I had my base turned ALL the way down and it's still too loud.

Summary: The unit works fine and is appropriately priced. I wish I had a longer DIN cable to move the left-hand controls further from the base unit. I might look for a 9-Pin M/F cable to extend it a bit more so left-right channel separation is better in the arrangement I'm using in my bedroom.
Summary: First let me state that I don't know as much as about audio as others who've reviewed here. That being said, I do know what I hear. For its price range, you will be more than satisfied by what these speakers can do.
Summary: If you are an audiophile then you will not believe that this is a great computer speaker set. If your ear is trained to pick up different nuances in sound then you will find many issues from the start.
Summary: It would have been nice if the volume knob would "click" when you turn it up to indicate its on but its all smooth and no difference.
Pros: Love the speaker design, fits great on my desk without taking up too much space. sub is pretty good without taking up much space
Cons: First couple days I had them they would produce some static when noting was playing, and it was enough to need to turn down the volume. I later played with a bunch of things: reseating every connection, plugging into a different outlet. The last thing I did was put some farret "covers" on the mai...
Summary: The satellites sound excellent, but, like cheap desktop subs, the sub is quite under dampened and sounds boomy and cheap (you 'can hear the box') This is often the case with low end ported enclosures, but especially here because they skimped on the dampening material.
Pros: -Good value for what it is; the last step before you pay a lot more for buy a real stereo and subwoofer. -No garish esthetics or led displays, just sound. -Smooth frequency response (satellites aren't boomy and make it down to 200Hz) -Plenty for small room (mines in my office)
Cons: -No headphone jack?. Whatever, that's what my computers' jack is for. -Can't mount satellites on walls. -Sub is boomy as is [ see below ]
Summary: I just received this speaker system (from Walmart) and set it up. It works well for my own music preferences and have no reason to return it. One thing to note is that it is bass heavy, and it works for anyone who likes a lot of bass in music.
