Altec Lansing VS4121

By Terry Currier

While I really liked the Altec Lansing 221 speakers, the one thing I missed was a Bass / Tremble  adjustment. I thought thatAltec Lansing VS4121 Speaker set the subwoofer adjusted for the sound. It is partly true, but in getting the VS4121 with a Bass / Treble adjustment I could immediately tell the difference. And, this was before making any adjustment. The 221 speakers are great for gaming, but if you listen to music, or watch any DVD's on your PC you want better sound and more control. It is kind of like having round steak and enjoying it, but then you get to try a T-bone. You notice the difference. I have a Battleship game which if you are not familiar with it you line up your ships on a grid and you try to sink your opponent’s ships while it is trying to sink yours. Well before the shots would fire with a bam, now the shots fire with a boom. It just is so great having the Bass control. Everything comes out strong and crisp. I also notice the speakers which are higher up project better. The subwoofer is housed in a solid-wood cabinet, and the whole set just looks really cool.
