Oh the sound
Being the nerd that I am, I didn't just want a couple good speakers, I wanted true surround sound for my new computer. I had a previous version of this setup from the early 2000s and it ran like a champ for years , but it was time for an upgrade. I'm planning on setting up both my computer and two d
ifferent game consoles on this screen, so extra digital audio inputs on the speaker set was a must. The setup comes with speaker wire to connect each of the speakers, so it's easy to fish through small spaces. Extra long cords provided for the back speakers. There are six inputs, the green/orange/black combo from most good computers, red/white RCA, a couple digital audio and so forth. It's easy to switch between them from the control box. I adjust the main volume on the control box, and then fiddle with the volume from the volume control on my keyboard. When you adjust the main volume control on the control box, the speakers in use are lit up. It would have been cool to make the colors adjustable on the control box. They're just orange. Not bad, just would have been nice to make them match the color of the keyboard lights. My only complaint is that the control box is light... to light. It can scoot around on the desk. If i were them I would have added a pound of weight inside to keep it in place and help it feel more substantial. Once I get my new computer and monitor all set up I'll probably velcro or command-strip it into place. Also, it looks like they were designed to have black mesh speaker covers, but they're not included. When did they stop making the mesh covers? Aside from that, truly amazing speakers.
