Lights On update

  • Summary: thanks to the reviewer with the 3 second tip.
  • Pros: User reviews that have usable information
  • Cons: Support's response to optical "issue" was a C&P from the P poor manual. Follow up emails were equally pointless. Humble pie tastes awful.

Solid Performance

  • Pros: Excellent sound for the price. I am over all very happy with my purchase. All components have a quality feel.
  • Cons: sub is subtle. This is okay and does give a true sound however if your looking for something that hits hard this sub isnt it. Its more precise.

Lights on, nobody home

x z., Newegg
29 November 2011
  • Summary: bought his as the least expensive means to use optical input with a WD TV Live Plus and it is the only port not working. I see light on from WD through TOS Link but no sound from the System. Antec Support appears to by run by the marketing dept. This will be relegated to serve as speakers for a PC
  • Pros: Black Friday price (but only just) , decent sound, connection options (if they all work) Solid build quality.
  • Cons: 3D must have been forced upon engineering by the folks at marketing, I clearly cannot hear more than 2 D's. Optical port not Opting. The two ash trays stuck to the front of the satellites

Antec Soundscience

Jonathan N., Newegg
25 October 2011
  • Pros: These speakers sound great! For the money, you can't beat them. Some people may be upset by the lack of bass the sub puts out, however, the reason for this is because most speaker system have too much bass. This is a very balanced system and is great for individuals who love clarity when listenin...
  • Cons: The 3D sucks, but I didn't get it for that. However, it does have a digital out which is great for individuals wanting better sound quality.

Great speakers, bad shipment

Gabriel N., Newegg
3 October 2011
  • Summary: The speakers I received in the mail about a week ago were defective. The left satellite and subwoofer worked fine, but the right satelite produced an unbearable static sound on higher volumes.
  • Pros: Truly awesome sound. Incredibly loud, powerful subwoofer and great sound reproduction. Solid build. These speakers were a steal coupled with the $100 off promo.
  • Cons: - Useless 3d mode - Unintuitive clunky controller - No bass control on controller, bass only has 3 settings

sound good, volume pod breaks

Earl K., Newegg
13 May 2011
  • Summary: The digital connector only works in two channel stereo mode. If you have a Creative card and you have Dolby Digital LIve or DTS connect enabled, the speakers will output nothing. If you go to control panel and choose SPDIF out as default, it will output stereo digital only to these speakers.
  • Pros: I received these speakers in December 2010 and I was impressed with the nice heft of the satellites. They looked great and felt solid. The subwoofer was compact and the whole took up very little space. There are a lot of connectivity options for analog and digital.
  • Cons: The volume control/input pod has broken twice. I have had two sent out and both wear out in a month's time. How can the speakers feel so solid and the pod feel so darn cheap? The 3d mode is terrible. It sounds as if you were wearing an old scuba helmet from the 1950s. Also, the 3d effect is in fr...

Good sound quality

Robert S., Newegg
23 April 2011
  • Summary: I'm very happy with these speakers even when I payed $250 for them. I think the price was too high, but $180 is perfect for this quality of a speaker. I also bought the HT Omega Halo Claro at the same time and all I can say is wow!!! They are a great combination for amazing musical clarity.
  • Pros: Great sound, clean bass, and they look great.
  • Cons: Price dropped $70. 3D sound just seems louder and more distorted to me. I tried it with some Blu-rays and I am not very impressed.
