Pros 1.Very Good Mids and highs!!
2.Design looks killer..u'l get compliments 4 it!!
3.This One goes lOUD!!
4.The clearity in sound is beyond any comparison!!
5.the control pod has a very unique look the amber leds look gud!
Cons 1.Bass not good at TOOO loud volumes...but i hope no one will use such high volumes without getting his ears damaged!
2.The connecting wires are on the shorter side.
3.The SUB is HUGEE!!:D
Summary If u want PURE and Ballanced sound go for it..though not gud for bass heads!!...those who enjoy sound quality and perfection over bass go for this one...others can opt for the z2300..Except for the bass (tht too at very loud volumes it gets a bit disorted...otherwise the bass is really good) i cant find a flaw. The design is catchy and killer.
Pros The sound does have some good bass. Nothing that's gonna rip your clothes, but good for computer speakers. Music is crisp and loud; but not overpowering, like some car with 4 subs in it and twice as many amps.
Cons The desktop dial is kinda swank, but it does not offer the fluid, *quick* control that a basic knob affords...my old speakers had a nickel-sized dial that you could very rapidly change the volume of the system..this looks cooler, but not as quck.
Summary For the money, well worth it. I would recommend these to a friend. Make sure you have room for the sub...put it as close to the corner of a room for maximum effect and sound. I am using this system at a computer desk at home, so the amount of cable provided is more than enough for me, but I can see you'd have problems if you wanted to put each speaker in a different corner of a room, or behind/beside your chair/couch with the subwoofer elsewhere...prolly not enough cable to reach that far...but for a basic desk setup, it's perfect. Oh, and I expected just a little bit more bass given all the attention that gets in the reviews I have read. for it's size, however, you have to admit it does push out some respectable bass. Worth the money.
Pros Nice balanced sound, very good bass for a 6.5 inch sub. I listen to this for hours at a time.
Cons Noisy amp... 10% THD is very high, and you will hear it, unless you play it loud.
Strange, complicated volume, bass, treble controller. I had to replace mine.
Unfriendly speaker cables.
Summary This is not a whole house system. The Expressionist 6021 is a computer 2.1 system. In a small office this thing rocks. I've had 6000 WATT SYSTEMS. This wont compete, this runs 200 watts MAX. And the sub is 6.5 inches.Altec Lansing customer service.
Read C-NET review.
Pros Great looking speakers and adds beauty to desktop station.
Flat band response, all frequencies are amplified and clear.
Controller has AUX which is handy for iPod.
No hissing sound at all.
Cons 1. No punch in the bass, don't know where 200W goes.
2. If iPod Touch (2nd gen.) is used, even with max volume in both speakers and ipod, volume high is not satisfactory. Feels some preamp. is missing.
3. wires are too short.
4. Controller has 7 LEDs for
Summary Disappointing low frequency <20Hz response and no punch in bass.
Not worth spending for such speakers in this price. 200W is more devoted to tweeters and mid freq. speakers rather than Woofers. Too sonorous at high volumes and not soothing (read noise).
I connected my iPod and slowly increased the volume to MAX to get a reasonable listening volume along with wrong/nonlinear volume control made me feel its a faulty speaker but I saw same with other 3 speaker in store.
Increasing the base from music player control give a really bad taste of clipped/saturated bass.
I feel this site provides more apt review for this product -
tech *t r e e
Average 2.1 speakers at elevated price under the umbrella of brand name. Not worth owning one.
Pros Elegant design,
Excellent quality sound,
Deep bass but don't kick your ***
Cons The sub woofer is not large....... It's very large.
It's just like desktop CPU .
I'm getting some hissing sound only when I connect speakers to my iPad 2.
