  MX5021 2.1 Speaker system from Altec Lansing
Words from the company:
Whether it's gently bowed cello or a screaming electric guitar, musically sophisticated ears like yours demand full, accurate sound. Featuring a polished, piano-quality black finish, the MX5021 delivers big time in a powered audio system that not only sounds great - but looks terrific in your home or office. Two midrange drivers in each satellite produce extremely responsive sound, while the horn-loaded tweeter offers extra-wide dispersion of those crystal-clear highs. Not to be outdone, the woofer pumps out deep lows you'll feel in your bones. Add in THX certification for cinema-quality sound, and you've got an excellent alternative to a high-end audio system.

The review:
It came in a huge box stuffed with Styrofoam popcorn and boy did these stick to everything when we unpacked it. Out came the usual glossy box that Altec Lansing is known for packing their speaker systems into; very impressive. It seemed a bit heavy too and after taking everything out we found out that the bulk of the weight of course came from the subwoofer.

I have been using Altec Lansing speakers for a very loooooong time now and the quality just seems to get better in time. This 2.1 system seems to be a much better sound system for my office computer as I do quite a lot of testing with these and now the sound will be enhance for all my reviews. Although the two speakers seem small compared to others I have tried, the sound quality is exquisite and crystal clear, regardless of how loud I crank it up.

The controls are through both a miniature wireless controller as well as a connected one which by the way has an extra headphone input as well as an auxiliary connection. Another great feature is the fact that these speakers are actually “pretty” and look great on my desk. I certainly would highly recommend them to everyone, from gamers to quiet music listeners
