Summary: The subwoofer did not work on the first set. When I asked for a refund the seller said they would send a second set at no charge, which they did. This is great customer service, however the second set did not work properly either. I am currently using the two satellite speakers with no sub.
Pass on this system if real bass is important to you.

Summary: I just reluctantly purchased the Pro Media 2.1. I previously had an Altec Lansing 2100 2.1 Computer Speakers. I had to purchase a new system because one of the cones on the Altec failed and needs repair and in the meantime I thought I'd try the Promedia 2.1.
Beware buyers: new digital amp, present since 2011, is no good.

Summary: This has been in production since 2001. That's a long time. And the ProMedia series has been highly acclaimed ever since for its full and limber bass response and it's satellites flat response. However, in 2011 the series was redesigned with a "digital hybrid" power supply.
Summary: I've had this set for about 8 years and finally the subwoofer went. I feel lucky because after doing some research it seems as if this is a pretty common problem, and some go sooner than others. This system sounded great until then. I am now in search of a different brand of speakers.
Summary: Love the sound, and the set up was easy. Doesn't take up much space on the desk, either. But it needs a power button so you can turn it on after the PC boots up; you're pretty much forced into either the loud sound of the computer firing up, or needing to lower the volume as it does so, and then...
Summary: It was between the logitech z623 and the klipsch promedia 2.1 for me being in a comfortable range for me. I listen to all kinds of music from classical to death metal and electronica to pop. First ones i decided to try were the Kilpsch...
Summary: These speakers sound pretty good, especially for being computer speakers. With their well-balanced sound, I like them for piano/orchestra and yes I also like them for some of the contemporary Musica Urbana stuff.
Summary: I recently (today 7/11/2012) got the pro-media 2.1 Wireless speakers. I was running the Pro-media 4.1 400watt system before, which I got from Klipsch back in 1999 for use at the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 and was the only company to introduced Klipsch speakers as a premiere speaker system...
Summary: This speaker set sounds great don't get me wrong. BUT... there is one HUGE flaw in the design that they have not sorted out after all of these years. The DIN Plug. Once this goes bad your entire nice system is utter trash.
Summary: First and foremost, please note that these speakers have changed since they were first introduced. This review is more of a comparison between the old set which I originally purchased in 2004 and that now has a flaky DIN input plug (huge known issue with the older model) and this new set that was...
