But it's once you plug them into the computer the real fun starts!
I honestly could not believe the quality from these chaps (and I've got a pair of £800 Mission floor standing speakers attached to my beloved Audiolab 8000A).
Pound for Pound, this is the best £100 I've ever spent on HiFi equiptment ... and it's a British company too!
I'm off to buy more ....
It's pointless trying to describe the sound of these - just get em! The also work a treat as tiny monitors connected to my Yamaha Motif and sound superb.
For this price they are an absolute steal. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Fill your boots!!
Upon receiving them, as others have said, I was pleasantly surprised by the weight and build quality. But, once I had connected them to my Squeezebox, surprise quickly turned to amazement - the sound quality is quite simply stunning. I am now listening to music in a different light, and am kicking myself for not getting these sooner.
The bass from the subwoofer (about the size of a 'normal' speaker) is excellent on setting 1, setting 2 is for serious bass-heads (or people who enjoy annoying neighbours) and setting 3 means you can watch much loved ornaments bouncing themselves to an early grave whilst holding your hands over your ears (although at least you cannot hear the neighbours banging on the wall which is a blessing)!
The treble and mid range are pumped out from tiny speakers (as stated in other reviews not much bigger than a bag of sugar) but what great sound they pump out - clarity is truly stunning.
If you want a set of speakers for under £100 then there are loads out there, but if you want a set of speakers that sound stunning then regardless of your budget it is worth considering these - they are definitely up there with the big boys and at a fraction of the price.
Technology, however, refuses to stand still, and in no time at all, I'm watching digital terrestrial television (Freeview) on my computer, using iTunes, and listening to the radio online whenever I am working. The BBC's iPlayer, amongst other things, has revolutionised the way radio, TV and other media are received. The sound from the speakers needs to complement this, and the Behringers were fine, but more was needed.
After further research I was about to purchase another system - indeed I'd made an order online - but I soon stumbled on a clutch of critical reviews from people who had high hopes but were then disappointed. That order was promptly cancelled and this AE Aego M 2.1 system ordered in its stead.
Having set up, my initial impressions? The bass is impressive, with bass drum, bass guitar and double bass being heard commendably. In fact, the opening of Bernstein's Prelude, Fugue & Riffs startled me. Curiously, the subwoofer is unable to reproduce the bottom B flat of the 32-foot flue stop of the organ of Bath Abbey on one CD which my living room B&W subwoofer and my iPod's small Sennheiser PX100 headphones reproduce effortlessly: an unexpected disappointment. In other organ music, the detail of some of the higher stops (mixtures and upperwork) is not as prominent as on the Behringers which have separate treble and bass controls; the Aego doesn't.Read more ›
Out of the box, the satellite speakers are heavy and suggest quality components as opposed to the more plasticky offerings at this price range, though this is mostly due to their metal casing. The Sub is compact enough to sit on the floor out of sight , or even up on a shelf. All in all, an attractive, minimalist look. Set up is as easy as plugging cables into the right places. They should be given a while to run in, to warm up.
The best way to describe the sound quality is to say that it's possible to get a clear, crisp sound that's more than capable of filling an average sized room. There's lots going on here, and you could spend a lot of time setting your ipod's EQ, along with adjusting the 3 bass levels (1,2, and, er,3) on the back of the AEGO, but the simple fact is that it sounds it's best when it is neutral. If you want towers of bass, it's there, but it can have a tendancy to muddy the rest of the mid-range if set to it's highest setting. I imagine this would be an advantage to gamers, but for music the effect can be too boomy.
Once set up, the speakers really sing. The 5 metre cable that is supplied ensures that a wide soundstage can be achieved. It's notable that these speakers are balanced well enough to finally make your ipod sound atmospheric and closer to a CD than you thought it could! Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge over Troubled Water is spacious, the vocals lush, and the strings are set free. Classical music is dynamic and well defined. Massive Attack's Mezzanine (A true dynamic range tester!) is thick and punchy. The flaming Lips - At War With The Mystics sounds almost Live!
Though not an audiophile option, these speakers are more than enough for most people.Read more ›
