Most of the professional reviews point out how well this system reproduces the high range, which they do and I would argue that they do a good job of delivering detailed mids even with the omni-directional downward firing mid-range. The claim of distortion on the mids is more the fault of the systems poor crossover settings and very prominently boosted bass. This causes the bass to be very boomy and over powering and leads to the mids to distort at volumes about 50%.
But this isn't the death sentence most reviewers made it out to be. While their is no gain adjust for the sub like on older Altec offerings you can still dial back the low end with the help of software, in the guises of your media players Equalizer. I use AIMP which features a 13 band graphic eq. I simply set the amps volume to the loudest setting before it sounded harsh and began dialing back the frequencies from 31hz to 125hz and was able to get a much richer and accurate sound. After this little tweak this setup sounds fantastic, while it would have been nice of altec would have given you a bit more control of the sound out of the box, the simple software EQ fix makes this possibly the best sounding PC audio setup I've had short of running my PC's audio through my main stereo setup.
