Summary: Where to begin.... well, the Subwoofer would not work. That should be enough right there. But lets take a chance and say I just got a bad one... other then the subwoofer... The speakers would randomly decide not to work. I would be playing song with all 5 speakers one minute, stop the song, hit play again and only two speakers would work. When all four did work the sound was good, though there was that pesky missing bass...
Summary: Do not get this set of speakers. Sound is so poor, this is a shame for creative since I had many of their products back in the day. This speakers look cheap and the sound quality is the same. I received the package and couldn't get to work the front speakers, just the rear ones worked.
Summary: In the description of the product, it stated that it can function with a TV only to find out that it doesn't after buying it and connecting it up in all the correct ways. I tried every source that could tell me how it functions but nothing came up.
Summary: First of all, I want to begin this review on a positive note. Amazon were absolutely fantastic when it came to me returning two of these speaker sets. There commitment to the customer is second to none and I must admit that I'd gone over to the dark side that is Play.com. But after their wonderful returns system they're back there at the top of my list. Right, to the Speakers themselves.
Summary: Sub-woofer did not work. Returned goods to Amazon. Replacement arrived in 3 days time, which I thought was excellent. See Creative Inspire T6160 Speaker System-B review for assessment on the replacement.
Summary: I had been using creative inspire 2600 for last 5 years, which having incredible sound! later I decided to change with 5.1 system. my first preference was creative because of my previous experience. After a lot of googling & inquiry I had purchased T6160 last month. what to say..... I have lost my 4000 & the speaker throw to waste bin. it will be value for money, if it's price tag would be under 2000!!!
Summary: it requires an audio converter for using with an ipod or other music players it suits only with computer that as an 5.1 sound card so please don't go because of the brand name. creative why did u create this product without creativity.
