I hate to be the one to break it to you, but, well...your computer speakers probably suck. Don’t worry, you’re not alone; most desktop speakers and even many surround-sound systems are designed to minimize size and cost, with sound quality coming in at a distant third in terms of priority. And for many users, that’s just fine. For general computing and most gaming, fidelity isn’t quite as important as, you know, just getting the sounds to your ears. But if you create multimedia, or do anything that requires detailed, accurate sound reproduction, Cerwin Vega’s XD3 speakers deliver great performance for a reasonable price.
