    Only 2.1 sound though. If this set was 5.1 I might consider them.

    I've been looking for an excuse to buy some new PC speakers ever since my Creative T20's got a permanent hissing sound a couple of years ago. It's about time!

    They do look good, but how badly will your neighbours hate you for buying them?

    I am dissapointed.

    So many review sites saying these are brilliant yet our customers who have bought these on an "upgrade" from say the Aego ms have been left with an bitter taste in their mouth and wishing they hadnt. So many DSRs. :(

    I have a friend who bought these. He was upset when he heard my Klipch 2.1 system. Corsair has to stop expanding into products they know nothing about.

    No comparison to the logitech z5500 which is easily and always will be the best speaker setup for pc systems.

    More than anything this makes me wonder what on earth your customers were actually expecting.

    I've been very pleased with the set, easily the best computer speakers I've heard.

    The spec sheet is impressive; it almost looks more inline with car audio than a set of desktop speakers. I wonder if BB or someplace is carrying these that I can take a listen...? And I gotta say: I do love the color scheme.

    One curious point, though, and I can't find any pics to help me out on this. Most PC subs are downward firing, and in the review here it was said that the sub enclosure is sealed. What's the air port for, then?

    The subwoofer uses a fourth-order closed bandpass enclosure:

    Ehh if you are an audiophile you wouldn't visit sites like this in the first place.

    So why are there so many pretend-audiophiles in here?
    This speaker set is decent for us regular folks,.

    The Z-5500 is an awesome set (we've been recommended it for years), but its 5.1, whereas this Corsair set is 2.1 so it wouldn't be a fair comparison. They're for different rooms/types of people.

    At this price you would be better off with a set of Mercury custom V1s and an inexpensive amp like a Cambridge audio or Denon.

    Is it even possible to get a NEW Mercury-Cambridge cobo providing 230W for £200?.........unlikely, I've tried.

    Are you freaken kidding me?! These speakers sound terrible. It's like a person who owns a civic with a 15inch sub in the back driving down the street.

    Personally, I see someone being paid off here. 9/10 for design?!? Come on... those speakers look like such crap.

    Honestly, this is a lame review.
