I just hooked up the pair I bought in the recent Woot-off and found them to have inadequate bass response, much less than the (perpetually in the shop) Avid AV-30s, and only a little more than garden variety $20 standard computer speakers. They have OK highs and fairly clear sound, but overall disappointing, and way overpriced.

Howm many garden speakers have optical inputs so you can use it with apple TV and create a wireless speaker?? Huge difference in sound quality. Overpriced at $79.99???? I'd like to see you come up with anything remotely close to the performance of this at anywhere near the price.
I haven't tried the optical input, and will, but I don't have optical on my 2-year-old laptop and that's mainly where I will use them. I don't have too many points of comparison, except for lots of cheap computer speakers and the Avid AV-30s and AV-40s, and the Audyssey are much closer to cheap computer speakers. Maybe I got a bad set? Main problem, and it's very obvious, is the lack of bass response.
BTW, I have something "remotely close" sitting right on my desk, the Avid AV-30s, and they basically cost the same as these, and they blow these away. So, I'll go on making "ridiculous comments." Morning to you, too.
