    Better than expected; using for oddball task

    For quite awhile, I looked at this every time it went on sale, but was unconvinced it could amount to much. When I finally bought it and tried it out, I was pleasantly surprised. The wiring is a bit inconvenient, with the control puck and the power cord permanently attached to the subwoofer, and the tiny speakers connecting there via a 3.5mm stereo jack (I added a 25' extension cable without excessive ill effects). The control puck has the power switch, loudness control, bass level (I can't help but wonder if some of the complaints about bass were posted before the writer found this control), source selector, and 3.5mm jacks for headphones and aux-in. I've been using this with a Chromecast Audio, mostly, and that has worked well, except that the puck defaults to bluetooth (which I have never used), not aux-in, at power-on. But since your hand is already on the puck to power it up, finding another puck button is not a big hassle, and the puck light ring switches from blinking (unpaired) blue to solid red when you select aux-in, so it's hard to forget. Ultimately, I had thought I'd be setting this up in this basement when I'm through with it upstairs, but it will probably stay up here in a supporting role.

    Slick 3-piece speaker setup

    A coworker of mine uses this same speaker system for his PC at work and it sounds great so thought I'd give it a try. I just wanted to plug it into my desktop at home. I don't plan to use the Bluetooth functionality but glad it's there just in case the wife wants to use it. Do note, when plugging this into your PC there is no 3.5mm wire included for that type of setup. I guess they assume it'll be connected via bluetooth. Another tip, this system starts up in bluetooth mode. To switch over to the 3.5mm cable from your PC you need to press the 'source' button to switch it over to Aux input. That aside, the sound out of this system is great. Watching movie trailers is pretty entertaining with this system, much better than I expected given the specs. I also like the bass boost wheel. It acts as a poor man's crossover for the sub. As long as it doesn't die on me I'll be happy with it.

    Great way to get sound by the bed with AppleTV

    we have a pretty decent sized bedroom and there is a bit of distance between the headboard and the wall where the TV is. sure you can turn the volume on the TV louder but when you have bedrooms right outside the door it can make watching television at night when the kids should be getting to bed too distracting for them and they may hear things not meant for children's ears. the appletv supports bluetooth speaker pairing so we have this by the headboad (woofer on middle and wife with one speaker and myself with the other one). this creates a very immersive experience since the sound is basically right by our ears and the sound is not even heard outside the bedroom and the kids can get sleep and not be exposed to inappropiate audio. i am very very happy with my purchase.

    DO NOT BUY FOR BLUETOOTH - FRIGGIN ANNOYING

    While the product may sound fantastic - it only sounds that way when it stays - read as can stay - connected on the Bluetooth. First, regardless of what you have the volume set on - whenever the Bluetooth connects or disconnects (which it is constantly doing) it plays a series of beeps at the highest possible volume through all the speakers. I am a die-hard BestBuy fan, but this is single handedly one of the worst products I have ever bought. I am very disappointed BestBuy. Now I am aware, I could just use an auxiliary cord from my PC to the speaker control unit - which it is designed to do - but wouldn't that defeat the entire purpose of the Bluetooth wouldn't it. If you don't trust many reviews, trust this one. It is going back to the store.

    So, you may be the in the need of speakers like these that will last you 77 days, like mine. The sound is fine, but after this relatively brief life, you've spent $58 (or 75¢ per day) for something that the Earth will not biodegrading for a few thousand years. You come home and notice the sound system is a little off, because suddenly there's no power going to the speakers. You experiment to make sure there's nothing awry with your own wiring and power, and realize you're stuck with out of return policy hulks of hopelessness. Obviously- Bose these are not. These are mass produced generics for BB, Caveat would be a better brand name than Insignia.

    Good Dorm Speaker

    Posted

    The sub is very acceptable for use in a small dorm room such as mine. The little speakers it comes with sound terrible, so I just ran an AUX to my Sony speakers which is even better. I can adjust the volume on my Sony speakers to get a good sound from the bass as well as the high range from my Sony speakers! Very pleased with the sub, would recommend doing what I did and use better tweeters with volume adjustments!

    Simple and Works Great

    Product is exactly as advertised and well worth the buy. Bluetooth works well, as do all ports and dials on the small controller. The bass and external speakers work extremely well. It's also easy to setup and run, especially if you have little knowledge in sound equipment (like myself). Only hiccup I had was a misunderstanding on my part about the speakers, which I thought were wireless but are not. Otherwise, fantastic and simple hardware.

    The system itself sounds good, highs come in clear and bass isn't bad, but you have to continuously adjust it. Connecting the Bluetooth was fast and simple, haven't had any problems with that. The worst areas are the switch and 3.5mm Jack on the control device. The switch feels like it's going to break every time I use it and I've tried 3 different cords, but I still have to jiggle the headphone jack like it's an NES cartridge to get it to work in both speakers. Good CHEAP speakers, but wish I had spent a little more.
