Great system, but beware: RMA shipping is on your dime if it fails
19 August 2014
Summary: I love these speakers. They sound fantastic, crisp, clean, just wonderful - while they worked. Unfortunately, I have to give them one star on account of Corsair's RMA policies. Unlike other manufacturers, Corsair does not cover return shipping for RMAs. My speaker system failed under warranty and I had to send it back to Corsair at my expense. This is a heavy system. The cheapest available shipping option was UPS ground and it cost me $40.
Best Price on the internet for these new, Can't go wrong for the pirce ...

Summary: I have barely stretched the systems legs. Sounds great. Don't let the pictures fool you though, the satellites are very small , but pack a heck of a punch! I have to set the subwoofer to about 50% or it rattles the heck out of my house. for the money these smoke the Bose Companion 5 out of the water.
Summary: I have had these speakers for about 6 months now and can say these can make a room shake. Playing Battlefield on the 50 inch tv with the bass booming is awesome. The sounds of RPGs and assault rifles really come alive with these speakers. These speakers are made for gaming. I also use them for Spotify as well. This is where you can kind of tell a difference. When streaming music you might have to play with the settings in order to get an ideal sound.
Summary: At first when I tried them I didn't really like them compared to my Klipshe. But they grew on me and sound pretty killer now. They do have good separation. I use them for recording guitar with my Axe FX II.
Summary: I like these speakers. They are pretty awesome, no doubt. But why did I not leave a 5 star review? Well, it took a few days for me to be convinced they were that good. I guess my previous system was pretty good anyway, so the punch of massive awesomeness was lost against it's predecessor, a $150 older Logitech system. I had to A/B them a number of times to admit these were really better. The old ones occasionally crackled, which is why I replaced them.
Summary: We have had the product less than three days and now there is no output from the subwoofer. No it is not muted and yes I have tried all three audio inputs as well as different sources. System was excellent prior to the failure. Am starting the RMA process with Corsair, will see how well that goes but thus far am extremely disappointed.
