Comment: want these speakers, they have them for £48 on amazon, but i dont know whether to get them or not, i love dubstep and really want somthing with a bit of boom, but cnet say that the sub could have more oomph so im not sure
Good: Rich sound, no distortion, great value for money
Bad: Subwoofer has some tone-balance issues, satellite speakers vulnerable to damage
Comment: I've had these speakers for going on 3 years now, and I've never felt the need to purchase anything more powerful. As 2.1 setups go, the Z4 is definitely one of the best. Sound is crystal clear, you can wall-mount the satellite speakers easily, and the wired remote is very handy.
There is no distortion at high (or very low) volumes, however if you turn the subwoofer up too high it has a tendency to drown out the tweeters. Thankfully this can be adjusted on the fly.
The satellite speakers seem a bit too exposed and vulnerable to damage as they lack the subwoofer's protective screen. This isn't a problem though as long as you don't have cats running around on your desk or something. Personally I decided to mount them on the wall and haven't worried about it since.
Bottom line -- these are excellent speakers for the price. I would expect to pay double for similar quality systems. They've served me very well through years of gaming and watching films on my PC, and if you don't have the space or money for a high-end surround system then these are your best bet, bar none.
