Excellent sound quality with THX certification

Summary: I had an old speaker system from Cambridge Soundworks and an onboard sound card with my third pc. The sound was better and it played loud. But when I got these THX certified surround speakers and a Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty Platinum THX certified sound card with my fourth pc I was blown away! And both pieces of hardware are eight years old now, excellent build quality and thundering bass.
Summary: Awesome sound system without a doubt. The quality of sound it puts out and how loud and powerful it gets is amazing. First off I bought this speaker system brand new 10 years ago for $300+(I really can't remember exact, I just remember it being a tad above 300). This thing has lasted me 10 freaking years, and finally today the subwoofer quit. The 5 other speakers still work fine, and honestly I got my money's worth.
Summary: I've had these speakers for SEVERAL years. I started with this setup and a Creative Fatal1ty X-Fi Pro Gamer sound card. I've recently upgraded to a Creative Sound Blaster ZXR and now they sound even better! There is plenty of power and you can use the control to eq the system if you want to adjust the subs, center, or rear channels individually. All in all, it really is a great system that's given me several years of service.
Summary: Believe it or not, I was directed from a Circuit City sales kid not buy the Harmon Kardon speakers system at the store and stick with Creative (which they didnt carry). I was impressed that he actually steered me right. I am more impressed with this system. I had an older Creative 2.1 and this is a signifcant upgrade. I'm not a Gamer - I do custom mixing (MixMeister) for fun on the home PC and this upgrade was worth it. Huge base for the money.
Summary: Everything sounds great on these speakers, and truly the sound quality shines with piano and jazz music being played through my bluegears sound card. The bass is crisp and even when it is cranked down, the sound quality is phenomenal. I would recommend this product to any audio freak out there. You can't get much better than this without spending a heck of a lot more money for minimal sound improvements.
Summary: I got these speakers yesterday and WOW, they are amazing, extremely loud and crystal clear. In fact these are soo loud, the volume up half way made my sisters pictures turn the side, and pictures on th e desk fall off. These Speakers are perfect for the price.
Wonderful Sound System, Great Price And Boom For Your Buck

Summary: I own these speakers and have paired them with a X-Fi Platinum. Just awesome. The satellites are clear, the bass is booming and the surround is amazing. They are great for movies and music and INCREDIBLE for games. For the price, these stand out as a truly amazing speaker system for the PC. Sitting at roughly $200 these speakers are powerful, yet not too powerful. I live in an apartment. I can hardly turn this system up to even 50% levels most of the time.
Summary: Bonjour, je vient de recevoir ce matin même ce produit et je vous fait partager aujourd'hui ce que j'en pense : J'ai commandé ce kit chez Cdiscount il y 5 jours et recu donc ce matin. Le livreur sonne et ho, mon colis. Alors, déja, ma première phrase à été : il est super lourd votre truc là. En effet, son poids est considérable mais supportable.
Summary: Vous cherchez un sons de grande qualité avec une fluiditée exemplaire. C'est le kit qui vous faut ! Mon avis : Un kit 5.1 vraiment bien pensé, avec un caisson entièrement en bois gage de meilleur qualité. Couplé avec une cart sons X-Fi sa devient un kit sons magnifique et disposant d'une puissance très élevée. La télécommande est très pratique et disposant d'une longueur de cable assez grande pour pouvoir la disposer sur un meuble pourris ou autre.
Summary: Excelente sistema de altavoces 5.1 para los que busquen la mas alta fidelidad y una potencia que se podrÃa decir exagerada. Casi obligado combinarlo con una tarjeta X-fi para sacarle el maximo provecho. En los juegos y en las pelis la calidad es inmejorable, con mucha capacidad de inmersiÃ³n por su gran subwoffer. En la musica solo tienes que configuar (en su propio mando) la cantidad de bajo y treble hasta que consigas el punto adecuado.
