These speakers rock

Lee, J&R

  • Summary: These speakers are really nice. If you have a OSX installed with a firewire port then you dont even need a soundcard to use these speakers. All the audio and power go through the firewire so there are not a bunch of cords and messy looking wires. The sound is really good and loud as can be, amazing.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Great Sound Quality

  • Conclusion: I bought these speakers based on reviews I read on other sites. Unfortunately after 13 months (1-year warranty has expired) all I get are continuous popping noises, whether powered by firewire or an optional power adapter.

What a space-saver

  • Summary: Sound quality is great! If you want bass, don't get it. If you don't want ugly power supply brick and bunch of wires, get it! Or if you want to free up a USB port, this is great! Complements my mac mini perfectly!
  • Pros: Added features, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality

  • Summary: Boy, these are sweet. Literally plug and play with my imac. love the retro panton styling and there's no software, no install. just plug the master speaker in to the firewire, plug the other into the master speaker, select them in preferences, and bam. like the simplicity, the look, and the sound in my office is great. i had the Harman Kardon SoundSticks before this..

Great sound and style at a great price

  • Summary: After doing a lot of comparison shopping for a set of speakers for a laptop, I decided to buy the LaCie Firewire speakers. There were way more positives than negatives and I was not disappointed. When making the decision, I was confronted with 3-4 basic options: 1 - Standard audio output, powered by an external power supply (with or without a subwoofer). I specifically looked at the Bose Companion series speakers without a sub-woofer due to space constraints.

  • Summary: Oxford Semiconductor made the silicon for these speakers, LaCie doesn't do a whole lot other than make the plastic shapes...
  • Pros: Light, 1394 audio keeps traffic of the USB bus
  • Cons: Ugly as one would be expect them to be
