Dunno why, ordered a set. Have a perfectly good fairly new set of Kplish Pro Media.

Well, cause they are very cool looking... =)

I still have my Sound Sticks that were part of my G4 Sawtooth system. They were quite good for their time.

Its interesting that they appear unchanged after all this time.

Why change a great design. It’s not like they are Apple.

I continue to use mine from 2002. They where originally purchased to use with my Quicksilver 2002 G4 933 from Outpost.com for $168. They use USB audio.

Enjoy your purchase.

I've been looking at these for awhile now, at their site, double the price.

In for a pair.

My last set of Creatures (II) died awhile back, and some of the speakers I've tried have a much bigger footprint than I like.

In long term listening if not sooner, I think you'll find the Soundsticks may be more musical than the Klipsch Pro Medias.

While the Pro Medias certainly play loud with little distortion, I just don't care for the sound.

And though I'm not a fan of the look of the SoundSticks satellites, they really sound nice.

Well, the originals did.

I have no idea what the IIs and IIIs brought to the table.

Same with the Creatures, which were a really good system.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Had some of the white creatures... they were OK. Sub was a bit meh, and just the single small speaker didn't put out much sound... but fine for an office desk.

Pro Medias are great... but ugly on my desk. Thinking a move them to my living room TV and see how that plays out.

I could always put them in the backyard and add a little BT receiver for a sorta wireless setup, just need power.

The reviews are troubling to me. Many seem to fail after a short time, I'd save $100 and spend it somewhere else.

Had my eye on these, but looks like I've missed the deal. Back to 199.00
That is the tax you pay for taking a day off from mrf, I guess.

I'll keep waiting.
