Perfect for what I need
Pros: This is the only set of speakers I can find to meet my desired HTPC requirements. I want a basic and compact HTPC solution comprised of a small form factor PC coupled with optical digital bookshelf sized speakers. No other A/V (Audio/Video) components needed. The sound regulation (volume, equalization, etc.) is handled via software on the computer.
Cons: None, works well and fulfills tasks like no other speakers.
Other Thoughts: The bookshelf size, self-power, and S/PDIF interface attributes are what compelled me to use these speakers and if you’re look for something that meets these requirements then I’d highly recommend them.
