I read several. Maybe it's because I am the only one who reviewed them who works on the level that I do? My 4.1 Klipsch never "farts" or distorts because I get PLENTY of lowend response out of it without turning it up that high, the Z560's didn't either. The 560's are overly boomy, it's fine if you turn it down, but the sats still do not live up to the Klipsch and never will because they are not two way speakers.
You know what, I haven't turned the knob on my sub up passed halfway on any recording with the Z-560 set. I have turned it down and played with my EQ and it sounds fine. It has plenty of low end is my point. You keep putting words in mouth trying to say that all i'm going for is volume when it's not. I like the bass to fill stuff out, that doesn't mean concert levels with **** falling off the wall. Either way, to each his own, but i'm not going to have somebody tell me the that the Z-560 has the most colored and mushy sound of any PC speaker set, that's insane and wrong.
