Oh my gosh!! Original Cambridge Soundworks!!  Nice!  I still have mine.

It was actually a pretty nice 2.1 system until the squares were placed near ear level, which shredded any sense of continuity between the woofer and the squares. They served me well (and the woofer is a decent weight).

I had the Cambridge Soundworks PCworks 2.1 system for years and years as well. Probably used it for 15 years or so even though I tried other systems and always returned them. I eventually "upgraded" to the Cambridge Soundworks Model Twelve which is their nifty suitcase system with the sub built into the case. I have two sets. One for the bedroom, and one as a spare which I use for DJ'ing small dance parties. Easily one of the best portable systems I've ever heard before moving into actual PA gear.

 

I've never heard any of their big offerings though. Kinda curious, but hard to gauge since there aren't many reviews on them. Kinda moot anyways since it seems they're almost out of the big speaker game now.

This is amazing!!  We all had it.  It's almost like they are the gateway drug for audiophiles :basshead: 

 

That said, I feel that they were second to none.  Even today.  They were something like $79.95 at the time.  A very enjoyable listen.

 

They also made a "Microworks" system that sounded fairly similar but did everything better.  I wanted those so badly back then...

 

We should almost start a PCWorks Heritage group! :)

They are great little speakers! I bought mine around 1991 or 1992 as I recall.

 

When I put together my first home theater (5.1) in 1999, I simply added a pair of their Dipolar surround speakers and beefed up the bass with an inexpensive 12" Polk Audio subwoofer. That system served me well for 10 years. When I updated my home theater in 2009, I kept the dipolar surrounds and still use them.

I've gone through a few 5.1 and 2.1 computer speaker sets of Cambridge Soundworks also!

I'll defend my LCD-2s to the death, but nothing classes up a Head-Fi station like a pair of HD800s on a well-made headphone stand.

Gotta say the HD800s are also my favorite headphones with regards to looks. Paint / quality issues and the likes though.. not so much for a ~$1k~$1.5k headphone. HD700s too and they're oh so comfortable.

Guess I spoke to soon in the last couple days a guy I know gave me about 200 old records and so I needed to up date a bit.
I added a Carver C1 pre amp that doubles as a headphone amp and a Denon turntable have not listened to records in 30 + years kind of cool.

There's only really the paint issue, but no other quality issues that I'm aware of. Especially compared to other high enders.

Moved some things around, new speakerwire, added a videogame "center", and I went a bit crazy with acoustic panels.
