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.
Pros: These speakers are fabulous, the sound quality is outstanding. I am a music enthusiast and these speakers have more than exceeded my expectations. In our living room we have a top of the range setup and these spearks easily match it.
Cons: Could do with a wireless remote control. More inputs would be nice, especially digital ones.
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.
Excerpt: Ik had voorheen een eenvoudig speakersetje van 2 boxjes. Hier kwam een slecht geluid uit en met de muziek die ik draai ging het niet goed samen. Tijd voor een andere set dus! Mijn keuze is gevallen op deze 5.1 surround set vanwege zijn aantrekkelijke prijs, een leuke bijkomer is dat het een THX set betreft, al zegt dit natuurlijk niet alles over het geluid maar het is wel een keurmerk dus je weet dat de set aan bepaalde eisen voldoet.
Pros: Geweldig geluid . Makkelijk te bedienen . mooi vorm gegeven
Cons: De control - unit voelt wat goedkoop aan . Geen draaibare speakers . Geen digitale aansluiting .
