      I’m not sure about the others but the Klipsch most definitely is =)

    I own a set of the older generation ones, and I’ve yet to find anything that can replace it. Insanely loud, with crystal clear clarity all the way. I’m a rock fan myself, and the subwoofer plays well with the power chords from AC/DC etc. Definitely recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a top-notch 2.1 setup.

    “The new Promedia 2.1 speakers are the most powerful computer audio speakers on the market as well as the first ever to be THX Certified.”

    it is not the most powerful speaker and not the first to be THX certified. you should google first..

    Hi Guys!

    Thanks for your comments. I was working off an older press release dated from September last year so there were most definitely more THX Certified speakers on the market. I have amended an edit on the post to reflect that =) My bad, coffee on me if you come by HQ =)

    Try compare this with AudioEngine A2 which is probably more superior.

    The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 has been in production for the NA market since 2000. As far as I know, this predates all the other models listed here. In about 2001 or 2002, my memory is fuzzy, a 230V model was released, but it never did very well and was discontinued. Production for NA continued until about 2010 with no changes. At that time, electronics production technology had moved on and a redesign of the amplifier and power supply was in order to take advantage of more modern electronics assembly and to keep costs down. At that time the power supply was also redesigned to be a worldwide SMPS, so producing some numbers for 230V countries became feasible again. The speakers and drivers themselves, the crossovers also, have not changes since 2000 when they were first THX Certified.

    Looks like your older press release is wrong too. ALtec Lansing MX5021 was launch way back in 2004 if I’m not mistaken. Many THX certified 2.1s have been launched before 2012.

    I have all the big boys from Adam Audio A8x to Neuman Audio kh120 and Mackie VTX8…I ran across the $119.00 sale at BB. I bought one for my son for his desktop speakers. At low , near field listening, I am impressed. I went out bought another one for my other son and 2 for me. Keep in mind that I use the 2.1 Promedia for near field listening that I comment about. I never crank it up to pass 9 o’clock and I always keep the LF of the sub around between 8 or 9 o’clock. What a balance sound for $119.99 a pop ! Late night listening is amazing since I do not have to turn my big system up and bother my family. Great job, Klispch. Reliability ! Nor sure that I bought 2 of the Promedia with replacement service.
