Excerpt: I had a pair of old gamer speakers that I wanted to replace on my power graphics system for my work. I have a high end movie system so I know good sound. It has been years since purchasing speakers and the reviews were a huge help. Get these speakers! They are awesome.
Pros: Attractive Design, Good Surface Space, Sturdy
Summary: If you like this model, buy the older version on the internet. I purchased a pair and am much happier.
Pros: High quality, nice piano black finish.
Cons: This Auto Mute is killing me. Any time I watch a video it seems like I always have to restart it so the speakers can turn on. So aggravating. As for Facebook or email notifications, forget it, speakers will be off. Tried to work this issue out with the manufacture to no avail.
Pros: Sounded decent for the Shell Shocker price I got them for.
Cons: The speakers will turn themselves off when not in use. It then takes a few seconds for them to power on. This is only a mild annoyance. However now, just after a year, they no longer power on, zero, dead. A product at this price point should give a buyer more than that.
Summary: Use optical audio if you have the choice. I had TOSLINK going to my Denon, but I moved my Denon into my living room and needed new speakers. I was looking for optical stereo speakers but couldn't find any, so I went with these. Now I regret it.
Pros: They sound pretty good i guess. They can get really loud without distorting, until...
Cons: When I plug headphones in they suddenly get real bad overdrive distortion on the right channel until I unplug the speakers from my sound card and plug them back in. I've done this on two separate sound cards (Sound Blaster Z and my Motherboard's on-board VIA HD Audio), so I know the sound card is...
Excerpt: quite functional and good speakers. I perhaps expected somewhat better sound quality, but perhaps my expectations were too high. They are certainly very reasonable speaker and there is nothing wrong with them.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Assemble, Good Height
Pros: I knew I'd fall in love with these speakers the second I go them out of the box. They were bigger than I expected and the power adapter looks very much like a laptop's. So, no wall wort and really good sound. Setup was what you'd expect. Speakers sound great. Overall, super happy with my purchase
Cons: If I were to quibble with it, it'd be that they we're somewhat expensive and are a bit too tall. I have them behind my monitors that are on an arm and and about 4 inches of them are covered by the monitors. Not a huge issue and didn't impact sound at all.
Summary: I have the T40s and the T20s. Both very nice. The clarity, realism and presence of instruments and voices is impressive. Subwoofer systems will have lower bass but I don't miss it. Superb computer and television speakers. Solid knobs should go the distance without shorts developing. T40s are best.
Excerpt: 4/5 because one the female treaded metal insert in one speaker has bad treads preventing to install the screw that holds the base plate. I will have to find the right size tap to be able to install the screw. Sound output is wonderfull.
Summary: Just got these in today! I'm someone that loves music and is picky with sound quality! I replaced m-audio av 40s with theses. Now some people might think I'm crazy to do that as the av40s are known to be excellent speakers. I have the av40s for a few years but was never 100% happy with them.
Pros: I bought these to use with my laptop computer. They provide full crisp sound. They fill my entire apartment and I have not turned them past 50% due to bothering the neighbors. The speakers seem well made and are beautiful to look at.
