Best Speakers I Have Bought!! with a tiny downside

Summary: I bought theses about 2 months ago and i have been nothing but happy with theses speakers. The bass comes out great and can get a big boom with WMP equalizer. Easy to put together and the front speakers have long enough cable to go under beds ect. The only downside was that i bought them in the US but the power cable was in European form so i have to buy a voltage converter.
Summary: The speakers are easy to connect because all the plugs are color matched to the plugs. One star off because the front speaker wires are not long enough. They measure about 5.5 feet. My desk has a back on it so the wires had to go under the back to the Sub. This made me put the Sub right in the middle of where I sit so it is getting kicked every now and then. Will end up getting some extensions just so i can get the Sub out from my feet.
Summary: I'm pleased with this item. The amplified speakers put out more volume my neighbors really wish I had. And they aren't half bad to look at either. I was worried the bass wouldn't be enough; but it's really tight and plenty deep! I opened Windows Media Player 10's Graphic Equalizer, and turned it down a hair, first thing. It's been a little tough getting the high end sounds to sound as nice; but using an EQ is an art, and every song is different.
Summary: I set this up for surround sound on my PC. It was easy and it works very well. The sound quality is great (I'm not an expert) and the surround works fine. There is plenty of ommph on the bass. The wired remote is convenient. The wires were all plenty long enough for a PC set up, which is what it is meant for. If you wanted to set them up to surround a whole room rather then your chair, they would be a little short.
Summary: I really enjoy this speaker system. The sound is clean and the basses are as deep as one wants thanks to the bass volume control. I had been using the Hercules 2.1 speaker system, then I had the chance to sell it to a friend and by this new one. I must say that Hercules is never disappointing.
Summary: Out of the box the front right channel doesn't work. I've not got a replacement yet, but if there's not something more fundamentally broken than the output on that one channel then this is a tinny, bass free experience. If a working version is better I'll post a better review (but I'll not buy Hercules again, I am incredibly unforgiving of a single not working out of the box experience).
Summary: I have gone three sets of Logitech speakers in the last 6 months!!! From a slight bang busting a sat from a blown sub to a faulty plug. Ridiculous waste of my time and effort and luckily Amazon replaced them each time. I got fed up and saw these. Boy how pleased I was when they arrived. Same price but just look so much neater being so tall and good looking. Sound quality is as good if not better than the Logitech.
