[Amazon.ca] Gigaworks T 40 Series II (PC 2.0 speakers) $119.99

$119.99
$20.00 (14%) off

It's actually more than $20 off, but that is what it is showing. I had it on price alert and it just hit, so I bought. No heavy bass (so focused more on music than games & rap). No bluetooth.

Price in title please. :)

It seems expensive for computer speakers without a subwoofer.

OK, I've updated the title.
Yes, they're not cheap. The top of these are ported for some bass:

Have these on my desk right now, been using them for 5 years now. Decent speakers, the auto on off is a very nice feature.

Pretty sure I got them for under 100 back in the days.

Dell has the Pebble V3s for $49.99 + free shipping, if you want something compact:

The catch with Pebble V3s is they require a specific power source that's good, or else they won't shine.

The $100 days are long gone, I believe (camel shows this is a historically good price, otherwise I wouldn't have posted because I know how much hate I get when I post). That auto-shut off "feature" is a deal-breaker for many. :) I don't think it will bother me too much, though...

My Gigaworks T20 speakers have Cambridge SoundWorks drivers in them, really a nice speaker for computer use.

Thanks.
I looked at the pebble but wanted something more substantial so I had my eye on the Z407. I liked the connectivity options but am not keen to have a sub under the desk.

The T20s seems like a good compromise

Man these things have been around for a long time, old enough to have CNET review appear when you Google these. :) They were the Audioengine/Kanto 2.0 desktop speakers of their day and still sound pretty good.

Wow there was a time Creative was the go to brand for speakers and sound cards. I still have a 2.1 and a 4.1 Creative Inspire speakers from university days. Upvoted for nostalgia.

Had them years ago. Very mediocre and not worth the price at all.

These hold up pretty well even though they are very old, the only inconvenience is no bluetooth.

They have a power saving feature that put the speaker on sleep mode. Can be annoying at times.

If your setup allows go for a 2.1 setup, these can't replace a sub at all in the bass department. Tried these ages ago.

I picked these up for $40 on Kijiji about a month ago. Had never heard of them before (I remember creative being big in the sound card days) but I figured for $40 they were worth a shot.

The good:

- Highs are very crisp
- Mids are not muddy like on most Logitech’s, for example
- No distortion at higher volume levels
- Auto-off is great!
- Looks nice, I love the yellow speaker cones

The bad:

- They’re pretty big and take up a bit of desk real estate - the photos are deceiving
- No subwoofer is a deal breaker if you listen to techo/ rap, etc

For $40, I’m incredibly happy. I’d say these are great at around $80 to $100.

At this price currently available? I’d try and find a good 2.1 alternative.

Hope this helps!

Wow nice, I'm really curious about these. I'm super impressed by the old Gigaworks s750 7.1 system I have.
