Summary: Overall these are great speakers and they would get 5 eggs easily if the left speaker hadn't died on me. I dislike the wired remote, especially because all of the wires are permanently attached and it takes up extra room on the desk.
Pros: Great Price (wait for a <=$100 deal) Great Sound THX
Cons: Input Cable attached to remote Headphone jack on remote is recessed making it hard to plug-in some headphones LEFT SPEAKER DIED 2 MONTHS IN
Summary: The z2300's sound fantastic for the price. If I were writing the review two weeks ago, it would be a five star review. Unfortunately, the wired remote recently failed (it only outputs audio on the left channel now), and my speakers are out of warranty.
Summary: When shopping for audio related devices, I am very picky. As a professional musician, I obviously have high standards, though deplore the word "audiophile" and still respect and understand the concept that everyone's ears are different, and what sounds great to me may sound horrid to the next...
Summary: Was great when I got it, but the control pod starting having issues with one speaker going out. Started happening after about 6 months on a second control pod I got. The speakers themselves are great quality, but this series has been retired for a reason.
Summary: I expected a lot from these speakers given their glowing reviews on almost every review site, not to mention their $150 price tag. They didn't just fall short of expectations; they're so inferior to my decade-old previous set that I'm just going to switch back.
Summary: I spent hours and hours researching 2.1 systems on the market and was eventually convinced by Cnet's extremely high rating on this pair of speakers. I read some negative comments that it lacked midrange, but didn't think much about it....that is, until I had it sitting on my desk.
