Bottom Line:   
To clearify a few things from my last review. The unit is a Altec Lansing ADA 885 and it was the base unit/subwoofer that gave out after a short time. I understand the new version, ADA 890, has corrected the problems.

I used the speakers aprox. 20 hrs. per week. I too had the base blow out after 8 months. When in use, the sound was not turned up more than half way.

Bottom Line:   
The speakers are really good, by way the best speakers I´ve ever had, they´re better than my father`s giant in his living room. Try playing NHL 2002 with a loud volume so that you really hear the spectators constantly screaming for more. That´s what I call speakers...If you can afford them and I think many people can then this is a MustBuy Product.
Five Stars I say!

Bottom Line:   
This review is for ADA885. I used it for 1 week. It is really heavy: 40 lb, subwoofer is very big, satillite also big. Mine is manufactured in China, it looks fine. Sound quality basically is good. This speaker gives real, natural sound. So, you really need a good sound source to drive it. Unlike Creative cambridge which makes high frequence sound 'sweet' and unreal. ADA885's subwoofer is 8 inch and 60w powered, but, unfortunately, the sound is 'desappointing', it is a little bit muddy.

Waching movie, the sound is great! The THX mark worths. I'v watched 'Driven', 'Top Gun' ... Great sound! Laud, clear and base rich. Sure dolby decoder did good job too.

I saw many reviews from other websites also stated the subwoofer burned after 1 month. Seems this is a common problem. There is a code followed by serial code on the buttom of subwoofer: 'Rev A00'. I am not sure what this mean, just guess this means a revision number. Hope problem has been fixed in this revision.
