Review: Altec Lansing Expressionist Classic Speakers

01 May 09

Altec Lansing’s latest speakers offering is certainly eye-catching. They’re a pair of stereo speakers with PC and/or mp3 player usage in mind, with a design that looks (to our eyes) pretty much exactly like a set of stage speakers.

Pros: Like most PC speakers, they’re very easy to set up, with just an audio cable to plug into your chosen audio source. Buttons for power and volume are large and easy to get to when you need to make adjustments.

Cons: They’re physically large, so you’ve got to give them plenty of desk space, but the output sound is only average at best.

Verdict: Looks great, but sounds ordinary.
