"Excellent 2.1 set"4.5 starson by BSDV
Pros: Sound clarity, very little distortion
Cons: Haven't found any yet...ok, they're not the Z-5500's
Summary: Bought these after reading some reviews.
Have listened to the Z-2300, but I wasn't impressed with the midtones and that set is a bit overkill for a small room. For the same reason I didn't go for the Z-5500. I tried really hard to find myself a good excuse to get this set but that would have meant lots of problems with neighbours and in a small room it's massive overkill I think. Specially since I can't think of places to leave the additional speakers.
I use them primarily for gaming, since I got fed up of using headphones all the time, and they're holding up nicely.
Also for music they're quite nice. The bass is for me more then sufficient,excellent clarity, good midtones and hardly any distortion at very high volume levels.
So far I haven't found any cons yet. Can recommend this set to everybody who's looking for a nice 2.1 set.
