If i try and write a review on this system now i don't think my words could possible do it much justice. First off i was sceptical about this system, a lot of expert reviews seemed to suggest this system lacked any musical clarity, it was just power and muddy bass, this i believe is complete rubbish, but i'll talk about that later.
This system looks stunning, the large black grill and silver satellite speakers compliment any desktop, and the monsterous size of the subwoofer really does reflect the power and sound it can produce. The system specifications say that the speakers are 40watts x 2 and the sub is 120watts, even with the sub turned off the speakers sound very powerful and detailed and sound great, the sub is merely an added bonus. The clarity and sound reproduction of these speakers are fantastic, no matter what the genre of music you listen to, and once the sub is on you FEEL the music as well as hear it, it will make your trouser leg move if you are even close to the sub once turned on and with the volume high. Me and my friend had a laugh and played "welcome to heartbreak" by Kanye West, with the sub turned to half way with high volume and the washing machine a floor below was moving, not to mention the glasses on the shelves also started to vibrate, they are not exagerrating when they say this system has thunderous sound. As for movies this system is equally, if not better than when playing music, the THX certificate is well deserved and explosions come to life around you, as you feel them as well as watch.
Overall a great system, and for the price i honestly think you have no chance of buying anything that is better value for money. One thing i will strongly warn buyers before purchasing, these speakers need a good soundcard, i cannot stress this enough. If you plug anything like an iPod or a computer with a poor sound card in them will make these speakers sound pretty poor, the punch in the bass dissapears and becomes very laid back, and unfortunately there is a great loss in clarity, making them deserve the criticism that there is no detail in the sound. Have a good soundcard, and truly reap the benefits of this system :)
