PSB Alpha PS1 Powered Speakers

Not an audiophile; personally cannot complain (Alpha PS1 main speakers alone). Even better with enhancement of SubSeires 100 (or any sub)

Skwalker

Pros: Nice quality sound (all except deep bass, Punchy mid-bass, Nice aesthetics and size as computer speakers, Nice warranty time & after-sale services

Cons: Expensive for computer speakers (2.0), even more expensive 2.1, woofer exposed -- prone to damage, USB port for charging purposes only (0.5A),

Outstanding pair of computer speakers. The mid-bass punchiness is much better than I imagined. However, the two main speakers are not capable of handling deep bass-- this is where the sub-woofer would come in handy -- it'd perfect this speaker set by compensating for its only weakness - deep punchy bass.     The speakers look very good.......well designed.   Tried Aktimate...

The Spinnaker system from Edifier: perhaps the most unique speakers you'll ever encounter... In all meanings of the word.

Edifier USA Spinnaker Media Speaker System (Black)

Pros: Vivid, energetic sound with good thump and sparkle, size and shape forces good tweeter positioning with no stand required

Cons: Can be fatiguing for certain music in the long term, can't handle really high volumes very well, questionable input choices

“ Note: I'm from Sweden so if the wording or sentence structure is a bit off, I blame the Swedish educational system!!    Introduction The ASUS Xonar Essence STX is a two channel soundcard with a built in amplifier and it is a great entry into hi-fi and head-fi, it has a good set of features and handles most games very well, at least with the newer drivers. The card has a good DAC-chip...” --Mr_Owlow

Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System

“ Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!   The small speakers do tend to be outclassed by the bass driver. They get loud, but the dont project...” --mattphones

“ After my E-MU 0404 USB that serve my workstation @ China dying (I'm using E-MU 1820m back in Singapore), I was thinking of buying another E-MU products. But when I try to look around, the choices is slim at China and the price is high.   There is two choices here - either going to Creative products or opt for Asus products.   I would like to try out Asus products, but I am...” --yeeyy

“ I just got these and am impressed with the detail and clarity of these speakers.  I only wanted something simple, small, and cheap.  I was looking at the swans but don't have the opportunity to listen to them here in hawaii.  We are pretty limited to whats available here and on Oahu is where they'd most likely have more options for me to listen to.  But back to the review.  I am currently...” --Hawaiiancerveza

Swan M10

“ I've had the Swan M10 for a few months and I was compelled to write this review. These have to be the best speakers in the price range that I've ever listened to, nothing else can be compared end of story. My older pair of bookshelf speakers sounded laughable in comparison, funny part is I paid nearly double the price for those! These speakers have very tight mids, tight highs and overall...” --OmarSy

Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System with Subwoofer

Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System with Subwoofer

“I have had these speakers for almost 6 years now. Downgraded from my old Logitech Z680. The sub of the Logitech Z-680 had a buzzing sound within a few months of use that forced me to set the bass volume to less than 10% (although it was sufficient enough for decent bass). Until now the X-540s have not shown any signs of aging or sound deterioration. This considering that the speakers have been...” --b3roldan

Audioengine A5 Powered Multimedia Speaker System (Black)

“ Build quality is good: Woofer dust cap and tweeter both pop back out if you push them in, so it is relatively 'child proof'.   Sound, especially treble and mids are satisfying but the bass can be boomy with bad tonal accuracy if placed on the wrong surface like a wooden desk etc which simply becomes an acoustic extension of these. So you either need lots of space for speaker...” --GREQ
