I HAVE OWNED THESE SINCE 2003 AND I LOVE THEM
Susan Says, Amazon

Summary: I found most of the reviews I read here kind of silly. These speakers are great. They were highly reviewed by PC Mag back in the day and they are still great. I bought them in 2003 and I did read up on them before I bought them. I had the Asus Deluxe motherboard and a fully digital sound card. I was coming off a component stereo system with all top of the line components and I was used to a certain sound from my equipment. These speakers deliver.
Summary: I've had a set of these for over five years, and ended up replacing it with the same set! Easily set up, takes a variety of digital inputs (optical & coax, though only a Dolby Digital signal, no DTS), and Klipsh still has accessories available to make setting them up in a room easier.
Summary: I can't believe I've had these since 2004! 7 years in daily operation, and they still work great - shoot they still make me grin sometimes when I'm playing music about how dang good they sound. One thing these speakers have that nothing Logitech sells, is a really nice clear subwoofer that not only puts out a good amount of bass, but does so clearly. Man!
Summary: I love it it rocks. What sucks is that you really need a nice sound card to really enjoy it. I am using my onboard Nvdia sound drivers with digital optical. I can hear the pc noise in it sometimes. Basically to really enjoy it I would have to buy a nice Sound card that can do Dolby encoded signal. For the price Buy it.
Summary: I am an audio freak and used many different types of speakers in all different environments. Really, I cannot think of anything else that you can get for $100 that sounds (and never mind looks) this good. Now if they have a white version, they can sell it at Apple stores for 3 times as much =P. I would just caution that it requires space to be setup properly.
Summary: Like some of the previous reviewers, I can't believe some of the negativity coming out against these speakers. Most of it is user fault, thinking these will hook up easily to your pc or vcr and give you full fledged DD sound. If people actually spend time to read the specs of this system we would have no problems. I just got these delivered 2 days ago and I must say WOW! They look great and have a good weight and solid feel to them.
