Summary: My new 22" Toshiba LCD TV had a beautiful picture, but such terrible sound that I just had to get a separate sound system. Also, I wanted to be able to keep the remote next to the TV remote. These speakers are incredibly good! The sound is as rich and full as my 52" Sony LCD TV, and the remote control allows me to control the volume from across the room. There's also a second input jack for headphones or an iPod.
Summary: When I was searching for speakers, there were a few important points on my checklist. First, I wanted speakers that would sound great at low to medium volume, because that's how I listen to it 99% of the time. Second, it must be small, because I don't have much desk space. There's a large UPS behind my monitor, so I can't fit asubwoofer. Third, I wanted a remote, and this one has a very basic wireless IR. Maybe it's a bit too basic.
