Pros: Superior quality of sound in term of balance of base and treble.
Cons: Not as style as apple desktop in term of appearance.
I personally will not waste money on 5.1 speaker for desktop and compare desktop 2.1 to 5.1 - 2.1 is best for desktop and 5.1 is too loosely even on computer treater system. 5.1 to 8.1 is for professional sound system not for desk top . My old 2.1 logitech 523 down so i hunting for a good speaker and was intro by my friend cosair SP2500 and sound stick III.
So i use my Handphone built in amplifier for testing all speaker. After the last speaker Klipsch pomedia 2.1 THX . I concluded this is the best speaker and the the different of good and bad is huge even compare to SP2500 or sound stick III. The design of Klisch is very simple and not prominent at all, plp will not test it by it appearance. After i test it .........OMG . Amazing treble and not supper boom base but if you want you can tweak it .
I bought it and connect with my Creative ZXR sound card - This speaker almost can play any type of music or gaming with superior quality in desktop range. I am not bull****ting you , Test it yourself and you will understand what i try to say.
