Summary: I don't have much to compare these speakers to other than the terrible 2.0 speakers that were hand-me-downs that came with my old computer around 2004. This is partially because these speakers have lasted me so long and I haven't had a need to replace them.
Summary: I use these in a touch screen jukebox I built. The sound fills the entire basement. Probably not the ideal use, I'm sure they would sound even better on a bookshelf instead of inside a wooden box, but no complaints.
Summary: I have a had Boston Acoustics PC speakers before....and for their size they were pretty impressive. So, when I bought my new Mac Pro, I decided to give the Horizon series a try. Setup was pretty generic and straight forward...no surprises there. But when I hit them with my first iTunes song...
Summary: Great sounding system! I got a great deal ($59.99 w/ FREE shipping) and love this unit as a computer system. Crystal clear sound and perfect bass response. Unit does have a problem with interference (coming from your cellphone if nearby), though I just remember to never leave my cellphone near it.
Summary: I'm just going to add to the already stellar reviews here. My fiance has the Logitech Z-2300 2.1 speakers, and I have these. Let me compare the two. The Logitechs are definitely much louder, and have much more bass. The sub is about twice as big as the MM226.
Summary: I am extremely satisfied with my purchase I made about 3 months ago. These replaced my 2.1 speaker set that came with my Dell that I should have replaced years ago. All ranges of sound are excellent. I would buy these again.
Summary: As in any speaker they take time to break in. 40 hours is usually what most recommend. These seemed to take longer. Maybe b/c of the smaller drivers. Even so, they work well. The sound is excellent for the price I paid. It took some tweaking but I am very happy with them.
Summary: The Boston Accoustic MM226 was a real bargain at the sale price. I am happy with the sound quality, the ease of set-up, and the high quality user interface (volume control). I was worried about the lighter color of the speakers but they seem to blend into the background with my brown furniture just...
Summary: Got the "mist" colored system for almost $100 less than the black ones. WORTH IT! I hooked a PS3 up to these to play rock band in a room for 50 and had to turn it down about 3 times cause it was too loud. They're powerful, but even with the sub cranked they could still use a little more bass.
Summary: I never owned BOSTON ACOUSTICS speakers. I've seen them around for over 30 years, now I own a small 2.0 Computer B.A speaker system. I read the reviews before buying, and I agree with those who said they sounded a little off at first. So I ran them awhile and they sounded better as time went by.
