**Update 9 Dec 2013**

My Mac has undergone some surgery (needed to replace HDD) and during the process the headphone jack appears to have been affected. So now I am feeding the audio via the USB connection, and if anything it is better! Very handy to have this option, as without it I would be having to buy a bluetooth receiver.

**End Update**

Got to say I'm pretty impressed with these. I had previously used the Creative T3 set-up which is very similar to this. Sadly my T3 bit the dust within weeks of purchase. Having once again spent a long time listening to the competition including the Boston Acoustics XS 2.1 and Bose Companion 3, I choose these and I'm not disappointed.

They seemed to offer the best bang for your buck and I still think that now. The imaging is not quite as pronounced as the T3, and the sub is no match for it, but the satellites are far superior. To my ears I think they deliver more mid-range. Also the sub might not be as punchy (as a T3), but for music that is no bad thing in my opinion. I needed to do less with equalizer settings for the M5 to sound good. Also the desktop controller is better I think. It has a discrete power light to confirm that it is on, and I really nice action on the swivel volume controller. Additionally the M5 does not require you to run your audio input to the back of the sub, you simply connect either USB or 3.5mm jack to the desktop controller (it also has a headphone socket on the controller).

In terms of build quality it seems to be pretty good. The speaker stands are a bit naff, just cheap silver plastic, but the satellite speakers themselves are well made with a reassuring weight to them. The sub feels equally substantial.

My current speaker system for my PC was bought in 2007 for £20, and it was a 5.1 system... so obviously the sound quality left a lot to be desired...

I am now moving house and the location of my computer will not be conducive to a 5.1 system. So I was in the market for a good 2.1 system. I liked the Bose Companion system but didn't think they were worth the money, so was after something more affordable, with a control pod and with a similar sound quality. After much searching, the price on these finally dropped and I grabbed them.

The set up was very simple, there are some concerns about wire length and what to do if they get damaged, but those concerns aside, for my needs everything was perfect, a simple desk, with Tower on the floor and Pod and speakers about 3 feet apart. They came packed very well and look fantastic - nothing fancy, yet with a more premium quality finish.

I used the USB connection as my MB built in audio, although adequate previously, is nothing special. From the very first note played there was a world of difference! Everything I listened to was just so much clearer! I am very impressed by the quality, there's no breaking, and it reproduces sound perfectly. I suppose I should mention I'm not an audiophile, and have never listened to really high end systems, so perhaps I'm missing something by comparison, but these are comparable to the sound quality I was getting from my Shure SE 535 Earphone.

The control pod is very smooth and responsive, and feels sturdy. The sound is quite loud for such small speakers, but I haven't turned them up all the way as I don't like particularly loud volumes anyhow.

I'll just give a short review here as many others have detailed the qualities of this "little" system.

I have just ordered a second one at the current price of under £80!

To start with I thought the system was good rather than outstanding, given the size. Working with my Acer laptop, or with a Sony CD Walkman, or Sony small radio, I had to turn the laptop output to maximum 100% AND the Minx M5 to 100% to get a full rich sound, and even that was hardly room filling.
Subsequently I found I might be able to increase the laptop output (via USB) by altering sound settings (not quite sure how I did it, not being very clever) but now the Minx M5 from that is producing a fabulous rich and full LOUD sound from the Acer, and I've only got the sound volume on the computer showing at 20%. I do not particularly like the rotary volume control device for the Minx. You can't see at what level you have!

I agree with other reviewers about the apparent slight deficiency in "middle" frequencies - not serious - this is not meant to be a £1000 hi-fi amplifier/speaker system. Careful adjusting of the woofer box bass volume (a pity the knob is on the back of it!) to make the overall sound not TOO bassy does the trick for me. That will still make speech sound boomy - but that's how radio companies pump it out these days.

So, it seems that nanny EEC has forced manufacturers to inhibit the output from devices to protect the ears of the unaware who whack full blast through their headphones and damage their ears in the process. This Cambridge Audio M5 will give a great sound for the money as long as enough input is available.

I'd rate this as 4.5 stars for the slight question on "middle", but can't so I'll leave it at 5 for what it now does from the laptop.
