Summary: I am a previous owner of the X-540's but wasnt so satisfied with the sound quality, althought they are excellent but i knew there had to be something out there that was better, so i gave them to my younger brother and decided to upgrade to these speakers.
Summary: I made it work in my office, but I would suggest at least 2 10' extensions for the rear speakers.
Pros: You get what you pay for. In this case however this system far exceeded my expectations. Not as nice as my living room surround, but for my PC, this is the ticket. Center speaker rests nicely on top of my new Asus 23.5" monitor.
Cons: Speaker wires could be a little longer, at least the rear channels.
Pros: The cable to the remote is of a decent size and reaches approx. 6 feet. Very good for controlling the volume while watching a movie without having to get up to change anything. Also the controls allow you to change the volume on each section of the speaker system (master, sub, center, surround). ...
Cons: Not really any, I wish the remote was wireless, but that's something I was able to get around.
Pros: PRICE!!! You can't beat the price unless someone give you money to receive a 5.1 system. LOUD n' CLEAR!!! Sounds great. Bass is good enough for me. Mid-range and treble are wonderful SLEEK LOOKING!!! The product looks great. The Sub Woofer is high quality made. Cords are high quality, too. Satell...
Cons: No CONS for the price! It's the best out there for this price range!
Summary: The sound is good, for what your paying for. As others have posted, I haven't cranked up the speakers to destructo level, but you can get it loud enough for good listening. The bass in my opinion is good, again look at the price, your getting some good sound for the dollar.
Pros: Sounds good The remote control is excellent Can wall mount the speakers by flipping the base around Mic. jack and headphone jacks are on the remote controller
Cons: As has been mentioned, the cords are a little short for lengthy configurations. You will need to get extensions as needed.
Summary: Other than the short wires, this is a great buy!
Pros: Sounds great, clear sound, amazing bass, VERY loud and I love it.
Cons: The front speakers and "precision control center" as the piece of paper calls it(thing with the knobs and buttons) have extremely short wires. I measured them, they are 5 feet. The rear speaker wires are longer though, I didn't want to pull them back out of the tangle I have going on behind my de...
Pros: These speakers are LOUD, CLEAR and AWESOME!! Easily the best PC speakers I have ever used (unless I count my component stereo system that I used on my PC a while back, but that is not "PC speakers" so shouldn't count!). Get a good sound card and really drive these bad boys!
Cons: Price? But you do get what you pay for, so not really a con.
