At a Glance:


  • 200 watts of power to bring your games, music, and soundtracks to life
  • 165-millimetre subwoofer for high-impact bass
  • Audio Alignment technology for precision-matched sound
  • Auxiliary input jack and RCA adapter for connecting additional devices

High Power Makes For Better Sound
The Expressionist Ultra benefits from the 200 watts of continuous power that push sound through the speakers. Its boom comes from five digital amplifiers powering five separate drivers for an authentically tuned sonic explosion. Each speaker driver - the 75-millimetre midranges, the 25-millimetre neodymium tweeters and the 165-millimetre long-throw subwoofer -- is individually fired and powered precisely as the source demands it. The result is crisp audio detail and dramatic bass that you can genuinely feel, an audio sensation that takes music, movies and games to a whole new listening level.

Fingertip Control Over Tone and Accessories
All adjustments for treble, bass, and volume are housed in one convenient satellite pod, so you can place the controls precisely where you need them. An integrated auxiliary input on the pod makes it quick and easy to connect your MP3 player or plug into your headphone jack for privacy. The included RCA adapter gives you the ability to connect the Expressionist Ultra to your TV, DVD player, or game console, -- at the same time your computer is connected -- giving you the option of a compact speaker system that enhances any entertainment setup.

Designed for the Way Enthusiasts Play Their Music Today
Computers are becoming the new home stereo for many people. The computer is where digital consumers organise and archive their music, movies, and TV shows. They want an audio system that sounds great and plays loud without distorting their favourite artist, movie scene or video game. The Expressionist Ultra is designed to be a true music speaker that happens to work with computers - good enough to replace the traditional home stereo system.

Further, the showcase design of the Expressionist Ultra is designed to look good in the main living space where the computer "entertainment centre" is becoming more common. The contemporary industrial design of the satellites celebrates the audio components by emphasizing visible acoustic components set into a translucent bezel. This angled design carries over to the trapezoid-shaped subwoofer, which is functionally engineered to break up troublesome standing waves to draw out every note of high fidelity and uncoloured sound.

About Audio Alignment
Whether it's the tiniest of ear buds or the most imposing of subwoofers, Altec Lansing has refined every detail of its speakers to provide you with the most accurate sound reproduction and quality. Audio Alignment ensures that the key audio components work together to deliver your music the way it is meant to be heard, offering the perfect balance of your speaker system's drivers, enclosure, and electronics. For 70 years Altec Lansing has been refining this process, bringing your speakers to life with advanced technologies that make them sing.

What's in the Box
Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra speaker system (two satellite speakers and one subwoofer), 3.5mm audio cable, RCA adapter, user's guide, and quick connect guide.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I totally have to agree with the other review here. I Received these a couple of days ago and they are such fantastic quality.

I know some may think the price is expensive, but if you love music it is well worth it. They are a lot bigger than I thought they were going to be, and seem very well built.

I use these every day now, the quality of the sound is so crisp, and they go really loud. I had an ipod dock before, and that is going in the trash now I have these!

I have had a lot of speakers before but would 100% recommend these to anyone!

About the sound, it's great, but there's a continuous electrical hum. When music runs you won't hear it but when there's no sound I've to shut the system down to get rid of this. But the lenght of the cable are really short. By placing the sub under the desk, it's only possible to reach one of the speaker. The other side of the monitor is too far...

To answer another review I have to say that the SVHS extension cable WILL NOT WORK

It's the good connector and you'll be able to wire it but the sound will be completely awfull. It's due to the fact that the SVHS and audio wire are not the same. With video cable you only pass signal. With audio cable you pass signal AND power. So it doesn't work as you need a better wire.

After the try with SVHS I finaly extended my speaker wires by unmounting the speakers, unsolder the cable from the speaker and extending it with classic audio wire by resoldering everything together. Like this it's perfect :D

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are wonderful speakers - I'm not an audiophile, and have never paid more than £50 for a pair of speakers in my life. As such, not noticing much of a difference between those and the £10 sets you get free with boxes of cornflakes, I concluded that there wouldn't be any real point in paying more. These speakers however eloquently express just how wrong I was. The sound they give off is beautifully clear, with real definition for both the low bass and high treble registers - there's a lot of nuance in the songs I tested these with that just goes missing with cheaper speakers. The sound they give off is rich, mellow and while it won't blow the doors off in terms of max volume, the range is considerable and the high end is satisfactorily meaty. You can never get them so loud that they are genuinely uncomfortable to listen to, but then that's probably not a thing that people really want to do anyway.

Consider me a convert to the argument for high end speakers.

I purchaced this because of the other reviews commenting on the clarity and quality of the sound these produce, and because of the stlyish design. Having looked around at various reviews on the net, some were very positive and some were not. Those that weren't mentioned:

- too pricy for the quality of sound
- bass weak and distorts at high volume
- high end too harsh and tinny while the mid range is weak and almost not present
- cables are too short
- speakers hiss when no input is fed to them

Unfortunately I would have to agree with all these comments now that I have purchased this product. I was expecting better quality of sound for the price. Yes the sound is clear because of the high end being very sharp, so for films or music which has been recorded with too much base then the voice/high end clarity is very good. But then there is no real mid range no matter what you try.
The base only seems to come on at moderate volume and I can only here it when sat back on the sofa. At my desk all you can here is the treble, its like having a 2 rather than a 2.1 sound system. The base clarity is also a bit limited and does seem to distort. For such a large unit I was expecting much more.
Short cables make the options on speaker placement limited and the hiss when on but not in use shows there is some interference in the system. I would expect this from a cheap system, but not one costing £150!
To me it seems to lack any form of rich 'volumous' sounds that fill the room. Instead it sounds tinny and lacking in a deep, clear and powerful base.
Others mentioned the controller being difficult to set to the desired volume which I would also agree with.

Overall this system isn't that bad but it definitely doesn't value its price tag. I am sure you could find much better 2.1 systems for much less than this.
