Exceptional 2.1 multimedia speaker system from Altec Lansing. Judge it by its specially engineered micro drivers that deliver crisp, clear highs. A down firing 3" driver for a warm, uniform sound around the room. And, of course, the long throw subwoofer that packs powerful enough bass to register on the Richter Scale. The result is a rich, robust sound that very few systems can match at any price.

And just look at it! The Altec Lansing VS4221 system is sleek and beautiful. A pivoting stand allows you to orient the micro drivers so they direct sound straight to your ears. And a convenient wireless remote and caddy put the controls right at your finger tips. High performance. High class looks. The new Altec Lansing VS4221 system is the perfect package.

Powerful sound - Experience what performance is all about!

Exceptional sound dispersion - Our uniquely concealed midrange driver fills the room with richly diffused, accurate sound - you'l enjoy clean mids anywhere in the room.

Crisp high end - Specially engineered Micro Drivers on pivoting stand reproduce highs with thrilling clarity an deliver sounds straight to your ears.

Impressive bass - Feel shakes and quakes from the front-firing, long throw subwoofer housed in a solid-wood cabinet.

Wireless control - Stand-by, master volume, bass, treble and loudness are at your fingertips with a wireless remote. Just sit back and enjoy!

Also features - Built-in controls with power on/off and volume, a headphone jack, built in RCA inputs for your TV or video gaming system, shielded satellites for use near PC monitors

Colour coded cables for easy installation.

i've got to agree with the reviews for this product, they are fantastic......got them set up on the wall for my TV, but for anyone who wants to get the best out of them its worth considering buying lindy.co.uk/sho…051 or/and lindy.co.uk/sho…473 as the cables supplied are limited and it can be difficult to get the right postioning...... thought I post as it took me ages to find the 8pin DIN cable, couldn't find anywhere buy Lindy.:thumbsup:

I need some speakers for my ps3 system im building, i was planning to go with the Logitech Z2300 (£90) but im little unsure now.. price seems dirt cheap but only 35w rms.. im a little skeptical on the people who review it aswell since the reviews i've read were stuff like:
"yes its very good but when i put my phone next to it it gets feedback, this is why im only giving it a 4/5" (no duh?)

Obviously im not aiming this @ you 'thecardiffone'. Thanks for the links!

I don't know anything about these speakers but i've got the Logitechs and they're awesome. Can't say i've ever felt the need to use my hi-fi since getting them.

i've got logitechs too and they blow me away!

I've never turned mine all the way up but I could imagine that it's quite literally possible that they could.

I have a pair of Logitech X-230 Speakers which are a couple of models up from the one linked too. Must say that they are alright and they go very loud, but they are seriously lacking any midrange. I have Creative I-Trigue 3500's (£100) on my other system and they are only a little bit better. This is a common problem for these £20-£100 sub and satalite packages. The system posted claims to have a unique midrange solution and is heavily discounted. My experience of Altec Lansing Speakers has been good in the past so maybe someone should give them a go before righting them off.

Oh and by the way, if you have a decent Hi-Fi I can't believe anyone would be replacing it with a set like this.

What I did say is that I haven't felt the need to use my hi-fi since having the Logitechs. I didn't say that they were as good or superior. They do, however, offer a very satisfactory listening experience from a PC.

Perhaps you need to test the Logitech Z2300's and take a leaf out of your own book before writing them off in relation to a decent hi-fi which I do in fact have.

Just a pointer for those with free P&P at Scan Computers....

I bought these the last time they were posted ]here, sounds superb, very pleased with performance. :thumbsup:

The reviews are pretty mixed for these but the one big minus for is that the mp3 cradle is just a bit of plastic to rest the mp3 player on.

My son's looking for both pc speakers and a docking station for his Ipod but I'd rather get an all in one if it was possible as he'd only be listening to one at a time. It also saves having two devices on standby.

Anyone know of anything like this?

If the mid range ain't there, you are not going to hear it. A mid range cone needs to be of a size that is too big and is therefore not evident on any sub & satellite package.

There isn`t an MP3 cradle, what you see in the picture is the remote control stand (not included if you buy from Scan)

Right enough, it was the speakers posted in the first reply I was looking at.

What if you don't need a sub, what would you reccomend in this price range?
I would like a sub, but the fact that it will make sounds around the house is annoying? Or can this be adjusted.

Thanks

Did you read the specs from Scan?
Wireless Control – Stand-by, master volume, bass, treble, and loudness are at your fingertips with a wireless remote. Just sit back and enjoy! :whistling:

Nice, may get some of these if they are better than anything else in this price range?

Build the stand maybe?

Expired!

Ahh too bad, looks like they've all sold out.

Just got mine delivered. They don't sound too great out of the box, but after simply turning the treble and bass up these sound great for £30!!!

Yes, it was a "today only deal" so it has expired, keep looking though if you are interested, they are often included in Scans specials.
