1 out of 5 eggsNot so great

Pros: Can rumble the room

Cons: Plugged everything in and immediately started getting a lot of low end hum and picked up a radio station. Moved the speaker cables around and fiddled with the volume controls a lot and found a somewhat acceptable level of hum. Unfortunately that volume level is turned up as loud as it will go, so all volume coming from the computer has to be turned down almost completely. Guess you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: This could be just a bad amp. I've read that you can add ferrite rings to the speaker cables and get rid of radio interference.

3 out of 5 eggsflawed but cheap

Pros: excellent sound for a $65 set. gets plenty lound enough for my purposes

Cons: bass/center channel wouldn't work until I figured out to put the plug in the back of the sub in only 3/4 of the way... also anytime the power is on the sub wants to play a radio signal (a rather disliked station at that)... gonna try and ground it to see if that helps

Other Thoughts: nice long cords, don't expect plug and play on this.

3 out of 5 eggsAudiophiles need not buy.

Pros: The cables are nice and long, and the system is easy to set up. Sound quality is nice and it can go quite loud 79dB to be specific as stated on the instruction sheet.

Cons: All the dials are on the subwoofer which can be a pain if you place it under a desk.
When I was setting it up, one of the speakers made a very loud crackling noise and now makes a loud whine eveytime I play something.

Other Thoughts: Nice, cheap 5.1 sound decent looking. I have since converted the set to 4.1 because of the bad speaker, but it doesn't bother me.

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD SPEAKERS GREAT SOUND

Pros: I found this setup on sale for $49 around Christmas and I'm glad I bought it. Initially I had some issues but eventually got it dialed in to sound like a much higher dollar system.. When I first set up the speakers I was really ticked off because the center speaker barely worked at all. It was just a whisper. And the rear speakers were also nowhere near up to par. Then I tried cleaning off all the RCA and 3.5mm plugs and ran them in and out of their jacks multiple times to get good connections. That solved the problem. After that I experimented with all kinds of sound settings and I finally adjusted the motherboard's on-board audio to a sample rate of 98K and 24bit. The end result was stunning and this was without an expensive sound card.
The bass is also very clean and much more than adequate for a Den or Bedroom environment. I recommend leaving the base cube on the desktop between the center and right front speakers. It just seems like it was designed to work best i

Cons: Not Klipsch

Other Thoughts: Operating system …. Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
Motherboard …. ASUS M4A79XTD EVO
Onboard Sound …. VIA HD Audio Deck (Sample Rate @ 98K & Bit Depth @ 24 bit)
Speakers …. Pixxo 5.1 Channel Multimedia System SH-8606

CPU Cooler …. Zalman CNPS10X Extreme
Video Card …. SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4830 512MB (no overclock)

Harddrive ....Western Digital 150 GB Velociraptor @10,000 rpm

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: let me start off saying that the system is very temperamental, but after i configured my onboard HD audio with room correction. It sounds great. Bass actually works and surround audio is nice. MW2 is amazing!

Cons: The system does not work after putting it into standby which isnt really a con for me.

Other Thoughts: make sure your sound card (on or off board) has room correction, it makes all the difference. without it this system sounds absolutely horrible.

4 out of 5 eggs7.1 IMHO, but its not bad

Pros: This speaker system was great for the money i spent, if i were a smarter.. slightly richer man.. i'd invest in a "good" 7.1+ surround sound system.

Cons: Not good at high volume, cracks like all "not great" systems

Other Thoughts: 7.1 is better, by far..

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the money

Pros: Inexpensive, set includes 5 speakers and a sub.

Cons: Not the highest quality speaker system, but see "other thoughts."

Other Thoughts: I bought this speaker set to replace an older pair of computer speakers. After hooking them up and experimenting with the settings, I've discovered that they are not as wonderful as I expected with regard to the sound quality. However, they are still better than what I had and were very inexpensive. In all, I am happy with my purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless

Pros: None

Cons: Useless "documentation"

Other Thoughts: No sound, The "instructions" for patching these into the system are incomplete and contradictory. Have an email into their "support" but I'm not holding my breath. If anyone can provide input or help, I'd appreciate it. Got a disappointed teenager here.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This sound system is great! I have this hooked up to my onboard audio and it still sounds great.

Cons: The printed labels for power, volume, etc. rub off very easily so try not to rub against the words when adjusting the knobs.
