Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0
22 July 2008
Conclusion: This outstanding sub-$100 speaker system sounds more lifelike than most desktop systems costing two or three times as much. It doesn't get too loud and has little output in the lower bass registers, but it sets new standards for realism in its price range.
Pros: Live-sounding. Snappy bass and smooth high end.
Excerpt: (1 items) If you're looking for a truly enjoyable set of speakers that will fit on your desk, won't clutter the area with extra cables and a subwoofer, and won't break your budget--and if you aren't looking for room-shaking bass--the ProMedia Ultra 2.0 are highly recommended. I don't think you'll find better sound in a package this size for the price.
Excerpt: (1 items) We’ve reviewed a number of computer and iPod speaker systems here at Playlist, but most have fallen into one of two categories: small speakers that sacrifice ultimate sound quality for portability, and 2.1 (subwoofer/satellite) systems that offer significantly better sound but require a good deal more space.
Pros: Small size, Surprisingly good sound, Low price
Cons: Bass doesn’t extend as far as most sub/sat systems, Limited volume
Summary: As far as computer speakers go, the Promedia Ultra 2.0 is a fairly solid package. It isn’t the best speaker set we’ve heard, but it has a powerful sound that will suit a wide variety of material.
Conclusion: At AU$219, the system is strangely expensive considering that it sells for just US$99.95 (approx. AU$135) in the USA. This makes it dearer than the aforementioned set, which can be had for just AU$129. Yet if you can look past its price tag, the Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0's performance is difficult to fault.
Pros: Expensive for what you get, Disappointing bass performance, Some distortion at max volume
Cons: High quality, powerful sound for a 2.0 system, Direct connection for portable audio players, Handy headphone jack
