Summary: I spent a great portion of my working years (I'm retired now) in the audio business and I amazed at how great these Hercules XPS 2.0 60's sound. I hooked them up to my LCD TV using the TV's "headphone out" mini plug into the mini plug input in the speaker.
Summary: Firstly, I'm not an audiofile but I have evaluated a lot of speakers and headphnoes. These speakers are incredible and I'm extremely impressed with what I got for the money. I bought these and a pair of Klipsch with Sub and I thought the Klipsch sounded awesome until I did a direct comparison.
Summary: unbeatable natural sound at this price point, compared to Maudio & Alesis... I have three pairs of these and they all work great. My advice to those having issues is to leave them powered "ON" at all times.
Summary: Very good sound quality. Adequate base. Not so boomy which I hate. Resonably clear high and mid-range for this price range. Build quality is quite good with some weight. On the back, the connector with RCA connector would be more convenient but I can live with the bare wire connections like this set...
Summary: I have been searching for a good set of speakers for my PC. I had a set of Altec Lansings which had terrible sound quality (maybe they were old). I researched this and was quite sure I wanted 2 speakers without the subwoofer. I just did not have space enough for the subwoofer.
Summary: For this price, the quality is good. Crisp, clear and powerful enough --- as long as you don't turn the volume to the highest. This is the common sense. However, even without turning the knob to the biggest volume, the sound is still amazing.
Summary: If you're looking for a set of computer speakers that won't take up much desktop space and provide great sound, check out the Hercules XPS 60 2.0 speakers. These speakers are rated at 30 watts but pack plenty of sound. The XPS 60 set are a two-piece audio system without a separate subwoofer.
Summary: I had some M-Audio AV30s for about a week. I loved how they sounded, but I noticed a slight rattle in my left speaker. Turns out one of the covers on a capacitor had come off and was rattling around inside the speaker. Needless to say I returned them and decided to try something else.
