I purchased these speakers for a new computer I was building for someone on a tight budget. When I got them home and tried them out, they were awful. If I turned the volume up at all, they distorted like crazy. I turned the volume level down on the computer sound mixer, but that didn t alleviate the problem. I played all kinds of music on them (from classical to rock), but the deciding factor that these speakers were awful was when I was playing James Taylor at a moderate volume level and they were still distorting badly. I immediately boxed them back up and took them back to the store and exchanged them for Cyber Acoustics CA-3000 2.1 speakers (two satellites and a subwoofer). I highly recommend you spend the extra ten dollars on the CA-3000 s and don t bother wasting your time on these speakers. If you really want only the two speakers, try any one of the Labtec Spin 50, 60, 70, or 75 speakers and you ll get better speakers in this price range. These may have just been a bad pair, but I highly doubt it. I may be a bit of an audiophile, but, whatever the price, I cannot justify purchasing speakers that are constantly distorting.
