Just inherited these off of my brother and am very impressed with them. As you will probably know, they are 5.1 speakers which is ideal for what I need. The sound quality is great! My brother bought them new for £49.99 from Amazon a while back which is a very good price for 5.1 as these days, the latest Logitech model of similar spec is £68.53 reduced from £79.99.
They have the option to go for the separate input with three separate cables at the back (Rear, Sub woofer and Front) or the simple AUX input which is ideal for an iPod/mp3 player or laptop. The only disadvantage of the aux input is you can't get the full potential out of the speakers which was a little disappointing as I can barely hear certain parts on "Stereo" songs such as Black Sabbath's Crazy Train. However if you use the other input they really are great.
Another thing I like about them is the simple cable design which instead of speaker inputs/jacks, they just have open end wires which are clamped into position. This for me makes cable management easier. They cables are also colour coordinated with grey wires for rear speakers, red for front and blue for centre. The sub woofer on these speakers is insane, makes the whole floor shake! I would definitely recommend these speakers especially to someone who doesn't want to spend to much but is looking for superior sound quality.
One final thing, is how easy they were to set up, just plug and play. The remote control is really useful as well as you can raise/lower the volume of the sub woofer, centre and rear speakers separately.
Bought speakers from currys for £39.99 on boxing day.
Sales staff thought i had got the price wrong until they went onto there own website and realised they had £20 knocked off the price in the sale. Salesman said he would buy some himself as they were to good to miss out on especialy with employee discount.
When i installed speakers it was a dodle because they just have bare ends instead of plugs and the speakers have ample wire length which my old speakers didnt.
Remote control is fantastic and it makes it evem easier to setup.
Great sound for a great price couldn't be better
Sure, its compact satellites and gnarly subwoofer are good-looking. But listen to the VS3251, and you'll forget about looks. This system rocks! You can get awesome 6-channel surround sound from a PC or game console. But you can also plug in your iPod or DVD player and get 70 watts of full-bodied, hard-charging stereo. And it includes a wireless remote. This is a romping good deal!
