This wasn't an impulse by. My roommate has the exact same set, so once I heard them on his HD tv, and had the video games hooked up, I knew this was a solid purchase.
The sound is GREAT! And by great, I mean, for the price you find this set on eBay and other similar markets for (30-40 bucks) this is a steal. I got mine for 30, so this was an absolute win. You can crank this set up and it is very clear, I have heard very minimal distortion, if any at all. Once maybe when I was testing the durability of the set.
The woofer is down below, so I don't hear or feel much from that, but the two desktop speakers definitely carry the load, and they do it well. I have a 46 inch Aquos LED hooked up to to these two teeny speakers, and my x-box and ps3 going, and I don't use any of the aforementioned goodies without this set on.
The only downside is you can't turn the speakers on w/ a roommate. It's manual. If that's the deciding factor, then by all means...
I bought this product because Altec Lansing is a brand I know and trust. This particular item provides crisp, clean and clear audio and provides focused sound without taking up much space for any PC.
It is wired.
These were purchased to provide better sound from a Vizio 26" TV that had deservedly gotten poor ratings in that category. There were no audio out jacks, just a headphone jack.
The TV sits on a pedestal and the low profile of the main speakers lets them sit in front of the screen and keeps them below viewing level. Since these speakers are powered, the TV's headphone jack was able to provide the audio source. The sound quality is now quite good for a bedroom TV.
A Smart Strip SCG3 Energy Saving Power Strip with autoswitching technology turns the speakers on and off with the TV.
There is a very bright pilot light on top of the right speaker that was dimmed by a little transparent red tape originally sold for automotive taillight repair.
Surprisingly good sound for the price! It is not overly loud when turned all the way up so that may be the one downfall but I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a decent set of speakers... I use this set up in my bathroom and it is perfect for my needs and surprisingly has decent bass considering the "subwoofer" is nothing more than a downward facing speaker mounted in a small box.
