Creative GigaWorks T40 Review

Digitaltrends
21 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Creative’s latest desktop computer speakers are tall and thin, leaving more room on your desk for the mess that naturally accumulates. They’re aimed at the high end of the budget market, with a list price of $149.99 USD (or around $120 at Amazon), putting them into the arena with beefier models like M-Audio’s Studiophile AV40. The T40′s have a few distinct physical advantages over the competition, and although the sound isn’t perfect, they’re not a bad value.
  • Pros: Easy access to volume controls; small footprint; compatible with Creative's X-Fi iPod dock
  • Cons: Sound tends to be shrill; no subwoofer output; rear power switch

  • Conclusion: The Creative T40 speakers provide the most audiophile-like experience we have heard on a budget speaker system. The sound is neutral and not exaggerated like most of the PC speakers we have heard. While the speaker character may not be for everyone, we found them to be much less fatiguing to listen to for extended periods of time. If you are tired of the PC speaker sound, you might find the T40's to your liking.

  • Conclusion: I think that this kit might not be the best choice for the 150$ it cost. I tested it with my Creative X-fi Fatal1ty soundcard at various settings and as I mentioned earlier I think that the sound is great and clear even at highs and lows but it lacks som bass that I require from a speaker kit that cost 150$ USD. Now I know it is a 2.1 system without a sub but the features says it has BasX port technology which should give more bass than an average kit.

  • Excerpt: GigaWorks T40 stereo speakers will fascinate you with their impressive audio delivery. Combining premium components with Creative's many years of leadership in world-class audio, each satellite delivers spacious, balanced sound, thanks to the potent combination of two high-performance midrange drivers and a dedicated high-end tweeter in MTM (midrange-tweeter-midrange) configuration, plus BasXPort technology for strong, dynamic bass without a subwoofer.

  • Conclusion: High-impact sounds from games such as Unreal Tournament 3 faired a little better than DVDs, as long as we kept the volume under control -- upping the volume made the speakers work too hard. You'll find the GigaWorks T40 system works best with music -- we'd recommend it ideally for a small room or dorm.
  • Pros: May be too tall for some tastes, Rear power switch and overly bright power light mar an otherwise slick design, No option to add subwoofer
