not sure but all the specs look good. i wonder if this model is a refub. this item usually goes for 130 on ebay.
post if you have bought from this vendor. everything looks good though.

Anyone have this speaker system. Is it any good. Thinking about getting it.
I was looking into getting the transparent Harman Kardon Computer Speakers but they cost a grip $170.

The X after the model number is usually an indication that it is a refurb.

I Personally Own This Set Of Speakers And
Just Order A Pair Of Cambridge Soundworks DTT350's
To Replace Them Since My New SB Live Platinum 5.1
S/PDIF Was Only A 1/8mm Plug Not RCA As On The
Altecs. I Hooked Up The Cambridges And Sent Them
Packing, They Don't Compared To The Sound Of
The ADA880's - The Subwoofer Alone Hits HARD
And Produces Excellent Bass Response And Has
Great 5.1 Quality Sound. To Use This Set
With The 5.1 Cards If You Don't Have A DVD
Decoder With RCA S/PDIF Out Just Run Out To
Radio Shack Grab A Female To 1/8mm Mono RCA Adapter
Slap That Bad Boy Into The Digital Out And The Other
To The Line Out And Boom Ya Got 5.1 Decoding Since
The Crossover Accepts Digital & Analog 5.1 Source.

I looked for these speakers at pricewatch and the cheapest I found them was over $100...How did you find them for $43?

yes i would also like to kno where you found them for 43. and shadow. which one would you recommecnd seeing that you have both speakers.
WARNING! They are selling the ACS-54's refurbished. Look at the model number at the top. The description IS for the ADA880's, but that's just an error. The ACS-54's aren't too bad, but definitely not as great as the others.
This was just a caveat :)

i got a set of these speakers
havent hooked up the 5 speaker setup, so i have
the surround speakers plugged up on top of the main speakers.
i have them plugged into a spdif input(coax only)
and its works great on those dolby digital games
and the dvds work ok.
its kinda good because they have a 'fake' center speaker
in the surround mode.
ok set, but i rather get the thx set.
but at that price ill buy; it got a refirb model too.
but i got em for about 100$
