Though it’s way more sophisticated than your average iPod speaker system, the FX6021 is just right for today’s Macintosh computers - particularly ones equipped with Apple Cinema Displays, but also the leaning LCD screens of iMacs. Each of the system’s two adjustable satellites contains six separate drivers, properly tuned to provide appropriate crossover and smooth, low-distortion high-and mid-range audio. The substantial subwoofer creates booming low-end - enough for DVD watching or serious music enjoyment. User volume, bass, and treble controls are found on the separate digital control box, and a remote gives you infrared access from a distance. It’s hard to underscore just how much we love this system, beyond to say that we use it ourselves, and can’t think of any reason we’d want to replace it.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
