No doubt, these are great looking speakers... the sound is sharp, but muddled on the low-end because they are NOT 2.1 speakers (i.e., they don't have a separate subwoofer connection)... I would have preferred a 2.1 system, but its not a deal breaker, and more convenient when plugging into my laptop. I also would have preferred a headphone thru jack on the speaker, but that's the sacrifice I made for aesthetics!
