...as one of my US Marine's M1A1 main battle tanks rolled past my camera view, the rich bass actually rumbled my feet - a very nice effect. While just kicking back to the songs... the Gigaworks T3 performed exceptionally, and you can definitely hear the quality put into its construction and design.
The two satellites did indeed handle the mid-ranges and highs of the test music very well, comparing admirably to a high-end reference system and delivering particularly nice vocals. It was hard to argue with the quality of that bass either, which came across pleasingly rich and deep - and surprisingly meaty, for the size of the subwoofer unit.
The sub works a treat, and this partly due to new SLAM (Symmetrically Loaded Acoustic Module) technology... The sound that the tiny speakers themselves produce is so clear and detailed that you'll think that witchcraft is involved. As you'd expect from a PC speaker package, the T3s are great with compressed content.
5 out of 5
Great value for money and good sound quality compared with other 2.1 speaker systems I've heard. My only area for improvement is to make the bass control adjustable all the way down to zero bass, as the bass is a big strong on these speaker systems, even on minimum setting. I normally set it to minimum and also knock down the bass at source, e.g. phone, tablet, laptop, down by 3-6dB. Another positive point is the subwoofer is very compact so it fits underneath a standard bed, many competing products will not do this as the subwoofer is often too large. This makes the T3 ideal for a bedroom HiFi as well as a pc/laptop sound system.
