Summary: The crystal is perfect. No flaws, bubbles, or imperfections of any kind. It's exactly correct in every way. The wooden base, on the other hand could have been manufactured with a little more care.
great surround sound system if your willing to pay the price

Summary: Love having surround sound for my computer. The unit has a ton of inputs including those specific to sound car multi channel outputs. Do wish I could adjust rear sound levels independently of left or right, but not that big a deal.
Summary: Just like others have said, this set is not for home entertainment system. This is for PC entertainment system (need to have a good soundcard). If you listen to the music more than watching movies, this set is as good as Bose is. You'd save few bucks.
Pros: After using this set for a while, my conclusion is if you use them as entertainment speakers by hooking them to your TV or BlueRay/DVD player. The sound is GREAT for listening to music. However, watching movies are another story. See con for more details.
Cons: I can only hear the sound of the movies not the dialogs, no matter how loud the volume is. In other words, I barely hear what they are saying in the movies.
Summary: I needed a new sound system for me PC after I moved my actual home theater sound over to my big screen to I went searching for a decent sound system for PC. the z5500s are longer made, and (Auction) posters want TOO much for it.
Pros: This is a really good sound system for PCs. -great bass -great satellites -not limited to just having to use their satellites Overall the sound is just great!
Cons: Viewers are probably wondering why I removed an egg if this system is so "great," well here's the con(s): - Not better than it's predecessor (the z5500) - Price, and only BECAUSE, it is not better than it's predecessor (call me ignorant if you choose); well that and it doesn't look as good (in my...
Pros: Great 5.1 system with lots of preset speaker and output configuration built into the control unit. Sound quality is beautiful, from crystal clear highs, to booming bass, this system will satisfy even the most picky of folks.
Cons: I went from a Klipsch 5.1 system that lasted about 12 years faithfully.. Loved it. This system sounds beautiful, but one thing that really bugs me is it has no EQ on the control unit. At times the bass is too much, wish I could turn it down a lil'. Otherwise, the preset speaker config is kinda od...
Liked the Z5500 better but this is a good replacement

Summary: Liked the Z5500 better but this is a good replacement, Adjusting the levels to the room is a bit trickier, but the sound quality is still there. A good deal, best home theater system you can buy for the $$.
