Summary: Creative had a great idea when they designed this speaker system. Ease of use and the sound was superb! But unfortunately Creative didn't hold their manufacturers to the same standards. The wired remotes are going bad rendering the system useless. And creative as arrogant as they are will not furnish replacements. I was once a Creative junkie. But Creative took advantage of me once to many times. They shouldn't be selling these speakers because they know of the problem.
