I just received a set of these little speakers to rid myself of my awful PC monitor speakers for good - typically used headphones but wanted some for music and media. What can I say? I'm very impressed!
I was in the market for a set of Bose Companion 2, or Creative T40 but they're both upward of £75. Having stumbled on these and doing some research over on Headfi / AVforums I took the plunge at less than £50!
Amazon UK price is £88.29 for reference.
My speakers arrived in 2 days via tracked DPD (included).
-Auto power on/off, great if you planned to use them as TV speakers to get rid of the typically anemic sound. These will dtect the signal and power on immediately, they turn off 20 minutes after the signal has gone.
-Auto loudness, they feature a system whereby you set a reference volume on the speakers and using only your external source to alter the volume they manage the delivery of a balanced sound, regardless of volume. Some speakers suffer with bass at low volume (voltage).
-Well made, solid construction, metal woofer cover.
-They sound FANTASTIC for their size, superb wide stereo imaging, airy sound with ample bass and decent separation. Proof being I've just moved the Sonos Play 3 from my office as its now redundant in this room!
-Dual input, there's 2 inputs (unusually) on these which means you can play two sources simultaneously (they call it auto-mix?) if you're in to that sort of thing. Handy if you have others sources and don't want to mess with cables.
Unfortunately they only have the white on offer, but they don't look out of place on my desk as they're reasonably understated.
