Altec Lansing ADA885

The rear satellites are pretty much the same as the two front ones, minus the larger bases and the Altec Lansing logo's. These speakers have very long cables too, which is one of the most complained about things from users, about speaker manufacturers.  They're at least 10 feet long, if not longer.

The included remote is a nice feature too, especially if you're going to be using this speaker system with a HTPC or something similar. It works very well at the desk, or across the room.

Just to get an idea of how big the subwoofer really is, it barely fits under my desk with my garbage can next to it. I always use my subwoofers as foot rests, and this one works very well for that, with the nice large top... just if you wanted to know ;).

Glad to see you found yourself an awesome set of speakers at a great price! Altec used to make some quality products back in the day, they seem to have taken a massive plunge in the last 3 years though...

Enjoy em!Quote

Nice review Nick.

Is it just me, or does the speaker with the volume controls on it look like a set of scales?Quote

Nice review Nick and well presented. Admittedly, the speakers probably won't be everyone's cup of tea, but they appear to give be of reasonable quality for their priceQuote
