“Great sound”

Excellent sound quality, great value, thumping bas...

May randomly tune into radio stations, albeit very...

Unless you've used your PC with a decent pair of speakers you won't know what you're missing; but when you do know what you're missing you'll NEVER want to even think about going back. We've all used the cheap "tinny" £10 speakers thinking they'll do, but they souldn't! It's a crime against your...

Great sound quality, excellent acoustics

set up and hardware requirements.

I liken PC sound to an optional extra in your car. Sure, your car will function without it but think about how much more pleasureable your journey would be if you had it? It is the same with sound. Sure your pc will work fine without it (most work PC's do anyway) but to truly appreciate the finer...

Bass is not so Moisturized, Aesthetically Bland

The friend of mine who had purchased the LG SW 700S monitor which I have reviewed had purchased this Set of Multimedia Speakers. Though I like Cambridge products, this is quite disappointing when it comes to ‘Rocking its Users”. Read on to find out Y. ( Taking a sip of 1890 French Wine) ***SOUND...

“Very Worthwhile Upgrade”

published 26/04/2002

Surround Sound, Size, Sound Quality

Distortion at high levels

I used to have some very basic speakers, the ones which came with the computer, so not very good quality, as im sure you can imagine! I had been looking for something worth upgrading to for a few months, but there just didnt seem to be anything in my price bracket. Then i found these, and whoa...

Excellent sound - Great price

Tripods are a bit flimsy

The FPS1000 speaker system isn't the best setup in the world, it has to be said, but with the correct sound card, I own a Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Player, the sound at even a quarter of the possible volume is plenty for everyday use. Crank the volume up for those dance tracks you've just...

Value for money, surround effect in games

Lots of cabling, not perfect quality

I have a SoundBlaster Live! soundcard which offers connectivity for four speakers. I decided to make use of this connectivity, so I bought a set of these four point surround speakers. At under £50 I wasn't expecting superb sound quality, and I didn't get it. But it came pretty close! The fact...

“Unbelieveable power”

published 05/12/2000

LOUD, great quality sound, Size doesn't matter,

not Digital

When I bought this speaker setup, I was laughed at for having the smallest set of surround speakers in history, and was told that they were not loud by many people and asked do you strap them to your head :-) . Oh how they were proved wrong. After installation and connection to the SB Live card I...

Great sound low price

Lots of cables in the way sometimes

The Cambridge Soundworks Speakers are some of the best speakers for the price on the market. I bought these speakers 6 months ago after owning just a simple 2-speaker setup and the difference was amazing. I only paid £40.00 for the whole setup that includes: 4 speakers 1 bass box Speaker Cables...

“Great Sound Quality”

published 28/09/2000

Great sound quality, low price

dont look all that good

This set of speakers are of superb quality for the price they cost. They cost around £60. If you have 'normal' speakers on your PC (the 2 that normally come with yuor PC!) you'll be amazed with these speakers. In the pack you get 4 tiny, cube shaped speakers and one bass unit. You can put the...

very reasonbly priced, great sound

Muffles some high sounds occasionally

Since I could not really afford to go for the Digital Theatre Option, I opted for the Fps(Four Point Surround)1000. These are simple analog surround sound speakers but do the job very well. They are bundled with the sound Blaster Live cards in some packages which is where I purchased mine from...

The highlight of these great speakers has got to be the Subwoofer. Put it on the ground, turn it up and feel the floor shake! The individual speakers are well balanced but tend to fizz and crackle a bit as you turn them up to the very higher volumes. You'll be amazed at the level of sound these...

“Absolutely GREAT”

published 05/06/2008

great sound, basses, quality... everything really

honestly none at all

I bought this "system" so many years ago and it's still kicking butts. I absolutely LOVE the sound quality (and how loud it can get). It's great for playing action videogames and, honestly, irreplaceable for listening to music. The surround is great, the basses fantastic for annoying neighbours 3...

“A taste of stereo heaven”

published 20/02/2001

Great Sound

none

I remember the days of internal speakers that could barely manage a beep or if pushed robotic voices. PC Sound has come a long way since then. If, like me, you spend a lot of time on the computer, then you will probably spend a lot of time listening to music on it too. I got the 4-point surround...
