"they make everything better but cost a pretty penny."5.0 starson by barraking90
Pros: great sound, both high and low freq.
the remote is handy.
crank them hard and there is no distortion
variable output is a good idea.
they WILL make your music sound better right out of the box, and with the D1 it sounds even better!
Cons: the price
they are a bit big for desktop speakers
while the bass is punchy, it does need ramping up on the EQ to get a good balance.
its worth getting the stands to go with, the tweeters are pretty directional
the front light wont turn off!
Summary: while these speakers are kind of expensive, for near studio quality monitors these do the job really well and are worth the price. they are provide great detail and have a great full freq range even when your playing them loud. to get the most of them, you need to be at least 2 meters back, and as for using these as desktops, the A2's would be a better choice. the only real issue that i have with these is that the light stays on when the speakers are in sleep mode, but that is just a small niggle. I can say that without a doubt that you will be impressed with these speakers. just make sure you have at least 256kps songs and a descent sound card (the D1 external DAC is what im running and its made a noticeable difference)
