Pros: Great Build Quality, Great mids and lows, Look great, Volume controller
Cons: Highs are lacking
Well after spending about a year with cheap $15.00 speakers, I decided enough is enough! Time to get some real speakers. I considered many others, but these came in at a good price that I couldn't resist.
I really was considering the newer Z623's, but I found these for a great price second hand, and they turned out to be in very good condition, like new even, so I think they are worthy for this review.
They are THX certified, which from what I can gather isn't very common, and they can put out a whopping 200W of sound, very cool! The subwoofer can be turned all the way down, so it's very quiet at night, but can be turned up to thump the walls during the day or for a party.
The satellites are great. They have very good mids, and even good lows, but the highs are somewhat lacking, however I'm sure these were more designed for Rock, and music with Bass. I found it awesome listening to Hip hop, Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Rock, even music with alot of highs sounded decent after tinkering with my Equalizer.
They are not too big, and the satellites just sit next to your monitor, or next to whatever you're using them with, but you'll want to find a spot for the subwoofer, cause it's quite large. However it has to be reasonably close to the speakers because the cords are short, but you could buy RCA extensions.
If you are looking for a good set a 2.1 speakers, I recommend looking either for these second hand, or the Z623's new assuming that they are as good, or better.
