Summary: By K. Wong First of all, if you think that my case is an isolated incident, do a quick search online and you'll see that many other people have this problem. There is nothing wrong with the speakers - pretty nice sound actually. However, after using it for over a year, the contact points in the volume control pod gathers dust and causes a myriad of problems. Contact customer support, and they tell you that they do not have any replacement parts.
"One of the best Creative products ever produce!!!!"

Pros: 1.Cheap (compared to Bose) 2.The lows are pretty clear 3.Highs is crisp 4.Pretty well built 5.Hides well as the satellites are pretty small 6.Bass module is one of the powerful for a computer speakers out there for $250.00 7.Great for movies!!!!!!!!!
Cons: 1.Midrange is so so 2.Depends on what music you listen to, this isn't for audiophile (although it's suppose to be built for them)
Summary: My problem was that I expected more from this type of speaker system for my PC. It is what it is. It delivers fair sound quality. I "upgraded" to a more expensive, similar system and the sound quality was no better.
Summary: I own a set of Bose Companion 5s that I use in my home office. I received the Creative Gigaworks T3 system as a Christmas gift (from my Amazon wish list where I put it after reading reviews). I think the sound is quite good, though the subwoofer is rather boomy, even with adjustment. No real complaints about the sound though. I don't agree with those who think the sound of the Creative speakers is better than the Bose system.
Summary: Finally someone puts together a product to take on the Bose Companion 3, which are over-rated and dont sound like these. Well designed and put together with nothing like stands, to buy. You will enjoy all sorts of music with this set-up. I would but these over the Bose anytime.
Pros: 2.1 system separate volume control volume control has input and headphone jacks the satellites come with their own stands - dont have to buy separately. good bass and highs
Moving from the I-Trigue 3200... Definitely better but room for improvement

Summary: By Max Edit: Give them a little while and the sound will open up. Add an EQ that ups the midrange and some of the treble and they sound pretty good. One problem though is that you cannot turn the bass completely off... which is more of a disappointment for my housemates across the wall. I'd give them 4.5 stars if I could, because of the bass not turning off and it's annoying to adjust on the back of the subwoofer, and the midranges do leave a little bit to be desired.
Summary: For the price, it's size , wow does it pack a punch ! The sound is so clear and the bass is really deep . I have the bass almost set to minimum, if you put the basson maximum , the bass literaly just ridiculous. Even at the lowest the you can still feel the bass through the floor, incredible... I'm going to hook them up to my television and use the auxiliary input for my mp3 player or computer when I want to play music.
Summary: Lets just say that its been a long time coming. I have been looking into buying a new 2.1 speaker system for several months. My previous set up was quite frankly, crap. They were left over Harmon Kardon satellites from several years ago, and only now am I realizing how bad they actually were. I was dead set on the Bose Companion 5 however, they came with a quite hefty price tag of 399$ and Ebay prices were still in the 250$ range.
