5.0 out of 5 stars Big Sound, Small Price!, 26 Jan. 2009
By 
This review is from: Creative GigaWorks T40 Series II (2.0) Multimedia Speakers with MTM Audiophile Configuration and BasXPort Technology (Electronics)
I finally upgrade from my T20 which served me well past 3 years with no fault. Now come the bigger, upgraded brother, T40 Series II.

Appearance
Straight out the box, I notice the brilliant gloss black front, gold plated headphone jack and aux in port, beautifully crafted control knobs and of cause the twin yellow fibre glass woofers. But once plugged in, it's a different story... gone the annoying overly bright blue LED, comes a blue halo on the volume control knob, it looks marvellous.

Performance
When I was unboxing this, I was expecting a standard Creative 12V adapter, but I was wrong. The T40 Series II comes with a whopping 20V adapter; I wonder does this unlock the true potential of the drivers. The bass is much better than the T20, highs are precise but not uncomfortable to listen even when pushed, the overall sound is much richer, clearer and overall better than the T20 and the T40 of the previous series.

Pros
Great sound at the right price
Looks really nice

Cons
You will need a high quality audio output (Poorly encoded MP3 won't do it justices)
The adaptor wire length maybe too short for some people
You may get addicted to it

I rate this a 5/5, highly recommended.

UPDATE: The new colour can highlight dust as its really shiny, compare to the Gunmetal Grey of the previous series. Still highly recommended though.

Hello, I was wondering if the T40s being 16 watt compared to the T20s being 28 watt makes any significant difference?

The T40's are 16W RMS per channel. The T20's are 14W RMS per channel. The T20's are a smaller speaker, with one less low end driver, so will lack low end response, compared to the T40.

Just to note that it comes with a 27V 1.7A switching psu, not 20V.

Good review Stefan and I agree with everything you say - they are great for their price. You are also right when you say that you need to drive them well, they are good enough to make mp3 files sound poor. But use FLAC lossless files and you start to unlock their potential. The other thing is to use a good soundcard, I use a SoundBlaster X-Fi HD and this sounds noticeably better than a TurtleBeach Micro which in turn sounds better than the headphone socket in my PC. With the X-Fi you can even pick out 24bit from 16bit FLAC files. Great product!

I have one of the earlier models, which came with a 20V 2.8A PSU.
