Yamaha YST-MS201

Consumer review by: nobrainer440 (

Worst speakers I have ever heard.


For an inexpensive 2.1 system, buy the Logitech X-230. Never, EVER buy yamaha speakers. Period. Yamaha makes ATV's and motorcycles, not speakers.

Cheap... that's about it. Oh yeah, the speakers make noise

Music sounds like someone singing into a tin can. I listened to these for about 15 minutes before returning to my $20 altec lansings, which don't even have a sub

Excellent at this price

Great, considering my old speakers cost me $12

Great overall speakers


Used both with desktop, laptop, game device, and TVs, all wonderfully. Excellent sound quality, no static, beautiful design. It's got a really big knob that you can turn on and off easily without looking obtrusive. Only complaint is no Bass or Treble...

Great sound if Bass isn't an issue...
