Brilliant all rounder

Posted

Pros: plenty of decent sound, big base, so easy to install, very felxible in application

Cons: sub can be a little droney, mid range sound slightly lacking

I got these in 2006 for $460 in Australia.   The main reason for purchasing was to watch movies and play music from an iMac. We ran an Optical cable to the receiver/controller for 99.9% of the signal inputs. They've sat in our lounge/dining space (4m x 8m) and absolutely rocked the place for music at parties, shaken the crockery in the kitchen watching films and then played nicely balanced music at a sane level for background sounds. You can play these at max volume and neither the satellites or sub distort the sound. We've done it for some parties and they just rocked the night. Next day, back to normal. Almost 7 years on they still pump music out, they would on average be...

Hard Hitting PC System.

Posted

Pros: Fantastic for small spaces. Phenomenal Bass. Punchy controlled sound as well as having the ability to sweep nice and low! V.Loud if required!

Cons: Cable is not the best. Control Pod cable can NOT be extended by using a vga cable. No control over EQ. No line out.

I'll put a proper review up later when i have more time.   Very quick notes for now,    The reasons behind me buying this were simple, We had just moved back to my parents and thus 99% of my Hi-Fi had to go into storage.   This presented a compact ( excluding the sub lol ) solution to my need for better sound than standard tv/computer speakers.   It certainly delivered 2 years ago and still does now!   The bass this system is capable off is Phenomenal.   Very versatile on the input side offering both analogue and digital inputs.   No line or pre-outs however!   Standard cables aren't fantastic.  ...

Nice System bought on Ebay

Posted

Pros: Great sound options

Cons: Large Sub

I have this system hooked to my Gateway pc. I have it run through an Audiotrak Prodigy Cube via USB and toslink to an Oppo player. No problems with backlight so far.   I can listen to DVD-A's and SACD's with the Oppo and get great 5.1 sound out of this system. Sound from realtek soundcard on pc sounds awesome too. Never figured out how to get 5.1 via Winamp though.   I have enjoyed this for a few years now. If you can still find it I would highly recommend it if you spend many hours in front of a pc.

Some of the best PC speakers you can buy

Posted

Pros: Support DTS and Dolby Digital PL II, THX Certified, Digital Coax and Optical inputs, provides excellent bass and clarity for all but the pickiest user

Cons: May lack some mid-range, cannot replace speakers despite the use of standard speaker wire due to built-in crossover

These speakers were the first purchase I made of higher quality audio equipment in any regard. I mated these speakers up with an M-Audio Revolution 5.1 sound card ($100) and a Digital Coax cable and have had a fantastic experience ever since when using my computer. I paid $280 for mine about 5 years ago and the price has held firm and actually gone up to around $300+ at most online retailers. These speakers offer receiver level processing cabability and are neatly bundled into a control pod that looks pretty cool. The included remote is simple and quite handy to operate the speakers - you have clearly labeled effects to use (Stereo, Stereo x2, PLII Movie, and PLII Music) - each with...
