"Doesn't Dissapoint"4.0 starson by fbxcore
Pros: Powerful, affordable, hardware decoding ability, optical/coax inputs, build quality, wall mountable good remote, aesthetically pleasing, POWERFUL bass, DTS, replaceable wiring, LOUD
Cons: Mids are a bit lacking, satellites aren't quite on par with the sub
Summary: Before I go into this I want to let it be known that I got the revised series of the speakers that use the home theater style clamp wire inputs, not the ones that are permanently attached.
Anyways, I went to fedex to pick up this package and it was pretty beastly. Got home and had some friends over and we installed it all fairly quickly with no hitches. Beware you need a good place to put the sub, where it will not be prone to shaking too many objects (i.e. desks with many drawers, file cabinets, etc..) It's huge as well and it's a good idea to give it decent ventilation for the warmer times of the year.
The first thing I noticed was the bass power of this system, it's pretty ridiculous. The port on the sub can practically double as an air ventilation system. Many people say that the sub gets really loose and sloppy but I haven't really had this problem, as long as you know how to EQ things correctly and adjust all of the levels you should be okay.
Either way this thing gets a 10/10 for the sub/bass
Next come the satellites. The most apparent dislike I have for this system is that the midtones can't really keep up with the bass and the highs, so that's a con in that area. Logitech should have gone with a different setup over the integrated tweeter cones. Other than that the satellites are pretty solidly built and as long as you have a decent output source (you'll be needing a fairly good sound card to get the best of these) your music should sound pretty good. I've noticed this system is EXCELLENT at playing ambient/classical and that sort of thing. Imaging is quite good.
Satellites get a 7.5/10 with all of the negative coming from the mid problems, but it's not a factor that would make me not want this system.
Next comes the control unit. It's pretty slick looking and has a display that your eyes will like. On top of that it has the optical/coax inputs which will be utilized when I get my new sound card in so i can use the hardware DTS decode option. It's well designed and laid out and you can control a lot from it. Same goes for the remote, it's very straightforward and you can pretty much control every aspect of the system from it.
Only hitch I have is that the control unit cable could be a bit longer, but it's not that much of a problem for me
Control unit gets a 9.5/10
Overall I'm very happy with the system. I'm hoping for a slight improvement when I get a new sound card in with an optical out and DTS Connect support and replace the speaker cables with monster cable, but either way with this system you can't go wrong for the money. I haven't had any of the popping problems that some people talk of.
Highly recommended, hope this could be of some help.
