    "I really liked the look of these speakers before I purchased them. They look sleek, and modern. They work well with my turntable and my stereo. I used them more so on my turntable though. They have great sound quality and were very easy to set up. They fit in well with what i already have in the room, you hardly notice they are there. Very good quality for the price as well."

    #2Klipsch Synergy Sub-12

    Klipsch Synergy Sub-12

    The Klipsch Synergy Sub-12 subwoofer gets its intensity from a 12-inch, down-firing driver coupled to a highly efficient BASH amplifier that creates 300 watts of continuous power and 650 watts of dynamic power. The subwoofer's built-in, steep-slope (24dB/octave) low-pass crossover is continuously adjustable from 40 to 120Hz. A phase control facilitates the acoustical integration of the subwoofer with the other speakers in the system. An "auto power" feature enables the subwoofer to turn itself on and off (standby) automatically, based on the presence or absence of an audio signal.

    "Klipsch makes excellent speakers and this Synergy Sub-12 is no different. The biggest knock against it will be the cost, but given the quality, it's worth it and leads the market for amplified computer speakers."

    "The concept is great. But the price seems to be over kill in my opinion. I do think great things would come from this receiver, and would love to use it daily. The price is a little high for me though. "

    "Do not buy this computer speaker. Although it has some redeeming qualities (the bass is fantanstic, for example), it is not worth the price. It is bulky, the treble can seem overmodulated, and keep in mind this is a really expensive product. There are much better alternatives for a fraction of the price."

    "Pioneer has definitely been a reliable brand for speakers over the years. This one is going to be a bit harder to find, but is a nice choice if you can find it. Quality of these computer speakers is up to par with what they've offered in stand-alone speakers, so a good option if you want to buy from a familiar brand."
