Summary: Apparently, these speakers had some sort of issue that caused them to fail, because I bought a pair of the many refurbished sets that were available to replace my original. These speakers have incredibly good sound and outperform many of the more expensive models. That is the reason for purchasing another set of the same model. I have my old set in the closet just in case I find someone who can make the necessary repairs. I am well pleased with this product.
Summary: This was my second set of this model of speakers. They are compact, take up very little space on the desk and pack a powerful sound for the money. They're kind of hard to find now, unfortunately.
Summary: Well these speakers does indeed do more than any other 2.0 speaker set can do. But it is NO...NO replacement for a 2.1 Stereo system, i had read reviews saying you can hear the Bass in other rooms....NO..you can hear Crisp clean music in other rooms but pretty much No Bass. Now don't get me wrong, i wasn't expecting organ transplant rumbling BASS, but these promised more than a simple Bump, but doesn't deliver.
Summary: Good sounding speakers for the money. Bass without a sub-woofer, but they do "walk" on whatever surface you place them on if you play them loud. These are, were, the second set that I bought. Unfortunately, I thought they were new, my fault, I misread the discription. They were so dirty when I got them that I threw them into the trash. My fault, I need to read the item discription more closely.
