When I'm looking to buy audio equipment, be it headphones, speakers or hi-fi I have to buy something that sounds great with a decent bass and that has a decent amount of power.
There's nothing worse than a speaker system that distorts when you push it beyond what you'd consider a normal level of volume or that can't handle a bit of bass.
So, it took me a while to find what I wanted for my PC after looking to replace my older speakers which had developed a buzzing noise, were cream coloured and which didn't match my monitor and looked ugly.
The Trust 1600p 2.1 system looked perfect and stylish as long as you have enough space to store the hefty bass unit which can be hidden away under a desk or where ever. It won't alter the sound at all in my experience like it would if you covered the two stereo speakers which deal with mid and top end audio frequencies.
I knew when I saw the system that it would really kick out the power way beyond what I needed day-to-day but was exactly what I was looking and its always better to over-spec a sound system that buy something that will hit its limits when you decide to up the volume.
The sound quality is excellent and is capable of kicking out enough volume to match a mid range hi-fi system. Really punchy, warm but clear and has really great depth and clarity. You can adjust both the volume, bass and treble via the control unit which is powered via mains. The speakers are then connected to that unit. The bass and treble control gives you the flexibility to tune the sound to your needs and music taste without messing about too much with your media player.
The added advantage of this speaker system is that its standalone and you could just as easily use it to connect to your TV or DVD player or Ipod. It doesn't have to be a computer. Connection is via a 3.5mm jack plug, but you can fit audio adapters to feed from phono connections or whatever (or just use the headphone socket of a device to connect it).
I'd highly recommend this speaker system as long as you have the space to store the bass unit. Measure it up first.
I'm really picky when it comes to sound quality, so take my word for it that this system is just the ticket for anyone wanting a decent 2.1 system for their PC that can also be used for other things.
