The FC50 come well packaged in a large cardboard box with plenty of polystyrene keeping everything secure during transit. Each item is also covered with a foam bag, and every cable is cable-tied and in a polythene bag too.

To further protect the satellite speakers there is a form fitting plastic cover. Handy in ensuring you don't accidentally stick your finger through the cone when unpacking.

The design is minimalist. They almost look like a speaker with a stand, but we think they're extremely attractive. They're weighty too, a claim that certainly can't be made of many satellite speakers.

What is hardest to get across in photographs is that the surround is actually only around 70% opaque. It's darker than what used to be termed "smoke effect", but you can still see through them a little bit.

Behind the magnetic shielding is the speaker itself. The whole unit gives off a serious sense of robustness which belies its looks. Even the fabric covers for the cones are designed very well, rather than the plastic circle with unbraced fabric that we've all seen on lesser quality satellite speakers.

Large amount of bass? Sounds just right for me! Its nice to see a 2.1 system that actually sounds good, however as I always say you can buy an awesome-but-archaic speaker set up from a second hand shop, which tends to deliver a great amount of bang for your buck.
