The sound from the speakers is so clear, and they look great especially without the grills on. I've read other reviews that said they're abit quiet, but in a medium sized room, turning them up to half way shakes the room.
You don't get any distortion what so ever, but sometimes the bass can overpower the rest. It doesn't sound that good playing rock or anything heavy, but hip hop and drum & bass sounds great.
I would definatly recommend them, there really isn't much to fault. They look and sound amazing, and for this price, you can't ask for much more.
Having been recommended these speakers by a comprehensive review in a computing magazine I was confident they would meet my needs. I was after a 2.1 system (not 5.1 due to all the wiring, and room remodelling work necessary to hide them!) and this set-up just about provides best bang-per-buck that you can buy. I was slightly nervous about purchasing speakers from a non-traditional speaker manufacturer, but there was no need to be.
The only criticism I had been made aware of was the attachment of the remote operating unit to the speaker cable itself. It took no time at all to gently part the cable for the satellites and adjust them to the correct length for my desk- it was easy. There is no cutting involved and the cable is designed for this very purpose. What was all the moaning about?
The remote is well designed, and the small blue LED is attractive and helpful for reminding you when you have left the speakers on! The speakers themselves are just plain attractive and the satellites are far more good looking with the protective covers off.
Overall, sound quality is 'tight', but I would have to agree with the other reviewers that the bass is consistently heavy,
despite adjusting the attenuation control at the rear of the sub.If you leave your computer running with the speakers on whilst going downstairs to make a cuppa, it sounds like a truck is about to drive through your front room! Or at the very least a thunderstorm is raging outside!
Minor criticism aside, if you are looking for a good looking speaker system at a reasonable price, the Z3 cannot be beaten.
They look great, but I really recommend taking the grilles of the satallites and just having the lovely brushed aluminium front. They are reassuringly sturdy and heavy and, to be honest, I use these speakers with the iPod more than I use my regular stereo at the moment.
This is a very very good price....well worthwhile getting
The speakers use a standard headphone socket, but also come with an adapter so that they can also be plugged into red and white speaker sockets on your hi-fi.
Only gripe I have is that the cables are not that long. They are long enough to be used for a computer (subwoofer on floor and speakers either side of monitor) or a hi-fi; but not long enough to place either side of a large T.V.
Extenstion leads cannot be used and so if you want to place the speakers at a distance from each other, then it may be worth looking at something else.
Sound coming out from the satellite speakers is clear but I'll have to agree with other users on the performance of the subwoofer. It could be a bit too powerful sometimes. The system did fine playing Bach's cello suites and other music I've tried which did not have too heavy bass. Using it to play heavy rock is painful. Tried playing The Killers' Hot Fuss and it was killing me. I used my software's equalizer to turn down the bass and had the subwoofer's volume at its lowest but it is still quite strong. Turning the mid range and tremble higher does help a little.
It's overall quality is reasonable for its price. You just have to do some adjustments with your software.
