Summary: I had a set of Z-5500's. They were great, but bulky as hell. So, I sold those; being impressed with Logitech (I've had a slew of their speakers over the past 10 years) I thought I'd pump out 150ish$ for their GigaWorks 2.1's. I've had these speakers awhile, they sound great, and still do. So, you're probably wondering... WTF is with the 2 star? This damn volume POD, should be labeled as a volume POS.
Summary: This setup is easily the best I've owned ever! Upon arrival I hooked them up and played jazz, hip-hop, & r&b. In a medium sized room, the bass is overwhelming and I'm a bass addict. I turned the sub all the way down and it still bumps. The speakers put out clear/crisp highs even at low volume and does not distort at high volume. Although used, for $130 this was a steal.
Summary: Amazing Bass, shakes my house and the little woofers pack a punch. I had tried two different home theater setups and both were really poor or not loud enough and under powered. Being a PC gamer I have noticed that decent PC 2.1 setups always seem to rock most other sound systems and I have always had better quality sound from PC speakers rather than TV/Home theater systems.
Summary: This is crystal clear and crisp. Good for the music enthusiast. If you like Bose headphones and quality/accuracy you'll enjoy this. Good quality materials and it looks very sleek. It didn't have enough BOOM for the bass so I returned it and got the Logitech 8 inch sub instead.
Summary: ( Disclaimer: I'm not a "true" audiophile) The system sounds pretty solid. If I had to complain about something, the bass is a little out of line with the high range, I've got my bass turned all the way down, at all times as a result. The annoying thing about this, is the bass volume can only be accessed from the sub, which is never easy to get to. Anyway, the bigger issue is the volume puck.
Summary: The sound is decent, the Base is great, but the tweeters are lacking the mid range that I found in the PS series. The main reason that I needed a new system in the 1st place is that on my last creative speakers the volume switch went from 1 to 50! and would blast me out, and I couldn't find a fix. The new switch is working well, so they solved the problem.
Summary: I really had much positive expectations on these speakers. First, I opened the box and found one of the satellite's stand broken at the joint with the stand floor; and finally, making sound tests, they didn't meet my expectations on sound music. I hope sound was crisper, brighter, more fulfilling, etc. They're are ok! For this price, it's not much a worthy investment.
