    Altec Lansing VS-3151 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers Review

    (Page 1 of 7 )

     Dev Hardware Recomended  Good speakers are a necessity in today's desktop multimedia environment. Altec Lansing's VS-3151 delivers high quality surround sound at a very affordable price. Highs: Great price, clear and crisp sounding, and able to perform well with almost all types of media, including televisions and DVD players. Lows: Limited responsiveness at lower volumes. The lowdown: if you're looking for a home entertainment solution, these are worth serious consideration.


    The quality of computer speakers is a major factor in the total cost for most home computer users. If youíre one of the growing numbers of users who have taken to using computers as not just Internet terminals, but also as home entertainment centers, then youíve realized that without good sound, computers revert from multimedia entertainment systems to cubicle decor.

    The problem with sound systems is that, like all things, you get what you pay for. Makers of good quality equipment know how the market values their quality and tend to price accordingly. Once in a while, however, a company strikes just the right balance and is able to offer high quality at a good price. Thatís what we found with the Altec Lansing VS-3151 5.1 Surround Sound speakers.

    VS-3151 Review

    Altec Lansing is one of the better known manufacturers in the home computer audio industry. As described in their corporate bio,

    Altec Lansing is a leading manufacturer and marketer of high quality computer and home entertainment sound systems, and a line of headsets, headphones, and microphones for personal digital media.

    Recently, the company has shifted its focus from big home sound equipment in order to take advantage of the growing portable audio market. Still, it hasnít abandoned its home audio offerings, and has in fact taken a leading role in the sound-intensive, quality demanding computer gaming market. Their answer has been the VS series of speakers, which blends quality with raw power, aiming to please both the gamer and the paradoxically demanding average user, who might not know sound, but knows what he or she likes.

    The VS-3151 differs from others in the VS series in that itís a 5.1 surround-sound system. (For more information on what surround sound is, drop by Ask.com and ask "What is surround sound?") This system was set up with not just the gaming PC in mind, but with home theater equipment as well. Its design and set-up is such that those looking to set up a sound system for a small space may well find their all-in-one solution right here.
