New Inexpensive Speakers Deliver Superior Sound

 Speaking of Speakers: Check out The Speaker Company

Move over Logitech and Altec-Lansing, there's a new player vying for the computer multimedia market.

The Speaker Company entered the frey earlier this year with its MM51.6 Multimedia Speaker Syatem ($69.97), which not only under cuts the competition pricewise, but gives them a run for their money in sound quality. Consisting of five satellite speakers and a sub-woofer, this 260-watt speaker system packs a whallop when it comes to delivering clear, crisp surround sound from your computer.

The five satellite speakers aren't a fashion statement, but if you're looking for realistic boops, pops and bangs plus true surround sound quality from DVDs and games, they're tough to beat. Plus, they're easy to set up. Everything is color-coded on the back of the sub-woofer/amplifier so you can't make a mistake when attaching the speakers or hooking it up to your computer.

Other features include:

  • Two remotes (one wired and the other wireless) that control volume, input device selection, resonance and equalization of sound for all five speakers.
  • You can attach multiple devices to the back of the sub-woofer and switch between them using the remote.
  • Twenty-five watts of power delivered by the sub-woofer.
  • They can be mounted on a wall or sit on a desk or bookshelf.
  • Free shipping, a 30-day free trial and free return shipping when ordered through the company's Web site.

If you're looking for an inexpensive surround sound speaker system for your TV or music system, check out their TSAT-1000 High Performance Datellite Speaker System ($299.97).

Designed to work with your surround-sound amplifier, whis speaker system includes four staellite speakers and a center speaker/woofer and can handle up to 100 watts per speaker.

This is definitely the way to go if you're on a tight budget and still want great sound from your system. The whole system is priced at a fraction of what you'd have to lay out for just one high-end speaker.

In addition to delivering great sound, this system includes:

  • Ceiling, wall and corner brackets and shelf-mounting legs so they can be placed anywhere in the room.
  • Spring-loaded binding posts to hold wires securely.
  • Free shipping, a 30-day free trial and free return shipping when ordered through the company's Web site.
