It would have been cool to see a head-to-head comparison with the also-reviewed Altec Lansing FX4021 system, which is in the same price class. When I listened to these side-by-side at Best Buy, I think the FX4021 was the winner. Its sub went a bit deeper, and had less audible distortion from the subwoofer. I'm big on bass (my home system uses a 500W 12" subwoofer equipped with a pair of 15" passive radiators in addition to the active driver) so a system with a good sub makes a huge difference to me. The two products were fairly close, however, through the midrange and treble.
For the future, how about round-up or head-to-head style reviews for comparison within price brackets?
