"Great sound, cool design, neat desktop controller"4.0 starson by otosurgeon
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.
