Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 review

 

Altec Lansing's Expressionist Ultra MX6021 currently sits at the top of the company's line of stylish "expressionist" PC speaker systems, which also includes the Expressionist Classic , Expressionist Bass , and Expressionist Plus . Of the four models,...

Impressive sound for the money; stylish design; very strong bass; good connectivity options; desktop controller for power, volume, bass, and treble.

The speaker cables--which can't be extended because they use proprietary connections--are a little on the short side, so you lose some flexibility on where to place the speakers.

The Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 PC speaker system is a superior combination of design and performance available at a fairly affordable price.

Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021

 

Despite a large subwoofer, the $200 Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra speaker set distorts and disappoints.

Pleasant audio performance at moderate levels. Remote adjusts treble and bass levels. Aux input and headphone jack.

Woofers distort at high volumes. Subwoofer is very large, and isn't a good fit for tight spaces. Hard-wired cables. Remote is wired, awkward to operate.

Altec Lansing MX6021 Expressionist ULTRA 2.1 review

 

Does this powerful set of speakers represent good value for money?

Heaps of power ; Clear, well-balanced sound

Expensive ; Bass distorts at higher volumes

A capable system, but we think it's over-priced for what you get

The Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 has good sound quality for its asking price. Even though it may not be as good as the older MX5021 and the Creative Gigaworks T3 in terms of resolution and details, the overall sound is quite warm and...

Dress up your desktop with this unique looking set of Xpressionist speaker from Altec Lansing. They sound as good as they look.

Good design and Unique Look ; Bright Highs ; Deep bass ; Good soundstage ; Nice control pod

Mids could be crispier and richer ; Bass could be more analytical ; No wireless remote

Stylish looking set of 2.1 PC speaker that sounds loud with deep bass and very bright highs. Purist may not fall for the subtle mid range but its overall pleasant sound make it a good buy in this price range.

Altec Lansing Expressionist ULTRA MX6021

 

Does it have what it takes to replace the MX5021?

Great looks, good clarity, good highs, cool desktop controller with AUX and headphone jack

Large sized sub-woofer, no punch in the bass, no wireless remote, expensive

Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021

 

The Altec Lansing MX6021 is a good speaker system for your computer, MP3 player, or video game console.

Good sound; Thumping bass; Desktop controller easy to use; Comes with RCA adapter for gaming consoles; Headphone jack

Industrial design may not suit everybody; Are you willing to shell out $400

Best 2.1 under $200 Read C-NET review.

 

This is not a whole house system. The Expressionist 6021 is a computer 2.1 system. In a small office this thing rocks. I've had 6000 WATT SYSTEMS. This wont compete, this runs 200 watts MAX. And the sub is 6.5 inches.Altec Lansing customer service....

Nice balanced sound, very good bass for a 6.5 inch sub. I listen to this for hours at a time.

Noisy amp... 10% THD is very high, and you will hear it, unless you play it loud. Strange, complicated volume, bass, treble controller. I had to replace mine. Unfriendly speaker cables.

Excellent Speakers

 

They literally shake my house

The best thing about these speakers is not how loud they get, regardless of how incredibly loud they are, it is the fact that if you turn the sound up too far and the speakers cant handle it, they will automatically shut off to prevent damage to the...

the cords are kind of short, but thats not a serious issue
