Summary: I haven't even received my speakers yet but just want to say that the advertised price is less than the lowest shipping cost. BE SURE YOU CHECK THOSE SHIPPING COSTS before you make up your mind.
Summary: I was looking to replace my malfunctioning Aiwa stereo system that I had hooked up to my computer as my computer's speakers. I found the system on XA3021 on buy.com for $19.99 and almost bought it right then and there (before my traditional epinions check) because of the price. But I checked it out on epinions and everybody seemed to enjoy their system. I also thought that the system looked kind of cool with the grill covers.
Summary: Warning: These speakers are marketed as speakers for your TV, PlayStation, or DVD player -- not your computer. They have RCA inputs; they want you to use the enclosed RCA cable to connect the audio outputs from your TV/PlayStation/DVD directly to the speakers. This would be great in a dorm room or bedroom setting where you may not already have a stereo receiver and want better sound than what your TV is giving you.
Summary: I haven't the slightest idea why my review didn't show 5 stars, however, I definately give it a worthwhile 5 star rating. I am enjoying every bit of sound coming from this speaker system. Please go out and support Altec Lansing by purchasing these speakers.
Summary: I'm no audiophile, but I wanted better sound out of my computer so I got these. The classic microphone look of the speakers is what really drew me in. The bass is great. There are 3 settings for the bass, so it's convenient for adjusting depending on what you're listening to. As for connecting to the computer itself, all you need to buy is a .55M cord (around $5) and you can get it going.
Summary: These speakers were delivered less than a week after I ordered them. I am very impressed with the way they sound, the bass is awesome for listening to music and playing games, I hooked them up to my laptop with no problems at all, though you need to have a 1/8" (Standard mini-headphone size for all laptops, cd-players or mp3 players.) cord that goes from the aux., which is located on the subwoofer unit to the headphone plug-in on your laptop.
Summary: Picked these up a local retail store and they are really NICE. For the price it totally added to the 32" JVC TV we bought... Cable Music,DVD's and PS2 games are much more dymanic now. We couldn't get past half volume without rattling the windows! This was the perfect fit if you don't wanna drop major ching-ching for a home theater system.
Summary: Die Boxen haben einen ausgewogenen Klang mit Lautstärke und Bassregelung, allerdings gibt es keine Höheneinstellung. Zusätzlich können drei Programme gewählt werden: -TV -Gaming -max-bass aber als einiges kann die gamingeinstellung überzeugen. Die maximale Lautstärkeleistung reicht vollkommen aus und der Klang ist auch bei lauter Musik nicht verzährt zudem ist es eindeutig zu hören, wenn ein ton nur links bzw.
