Summary: My old ALTEC Lansing had more treble volume, similar bass and fidelity. I'm keeping one of the old speakers to suppliment the new even in a medium room. We have high ceilings that need more treble. These free me from headphones but don't put out enough to share with an audience.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Summary: after spending a week with this, i think this is a good but not great speakers. the overall sound lacks details. maybe its just me but i think normal folks would notice its too bass heavy and not enough in the mid-tone and especially lacking in trebles.
Summary: The sound is good. It has an 8 inch subwoofer (advertised as 10 when I bought). It was broke around the base of one of the satellite speakers(may be a faulty spot). Does sound very good. But I have problems with the volume control. One of the satellite speakers turn on and off at low volumes. Its a matter of moving the volume control a little to fix. It doesn't cut off once it makes sound, only when Im adjusting it. Almost like bad electrical contacts.
Summary: This speaker system is great for most users. It's very affordable and at normal volumes has very good sound quality. At higher volumes the sound gets distorted and more controls would have been nice. Overall it's a good system that most will be happy with.
Pros: Great price, good sound quality in general
Cons: Sound gets distorted at high volumes, no treble adjustment
