4.5 Excellent clarity and stereo imaging but slightly harsh Robertz100 | 22/03/2009 | See all Robertz100's reviews (1) Overall I'm impressed with the quality of this system, the finish is excellent (including gold plated connectors) the sub has a good frequency response and has no problem shaking my desk apart. The control 'puc' has a very nice feel to it and allows you to listen to an additional input (I tend to leave the both PC and the TV plugged into it). Inserting a headphone jack automatically cuts off the speakers and you can control the level of bass from the sub which is a nice touch.My only gripe would be the satellites, the clarity is excellent! But due to their small size I feel the 1" driver has a hard time recreating the mid-low frequencies so at times they sound a bit detached from the sub and sound a bit tinny and metallic in comparison to my old hi-fi speakers. I know it's not fair to expect the same warmth found in a 2-way hi-fi speaker to come from a single satellite with a footprint about the same size as a pint-glass but I think these could benefit from having both mid and high frequency drivers.I read many reviews before purchasing this system and am still certain its one of the best multimedia 2.1 systems available in this price range but I would have preferred better cohesion and more warmth. The clarity and quality of sound however is brilliant.
