Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 Review

 

That old adage about children being seen and not heard should be flipped around for speakers: They should be heard, not seen. In an ideal world, anyway. But until the Invisible Speaker becomes reality, a lot of manufacturers have taken to interesting...

Power to spare, for PC speakers ; Chest-thumping bass, crisp treble ; Sleek, modern design ; Included desktop remote control

Audible hiss even at moderate volume ; Slight lack of presence ; Non-standard speaker cables ; Enormous subwoofer hard to hide ; Awkward desktop controller

Altec Lansing’s brawny Expressionist Ultra MX6021 moves enough air to elicit grins and noise complaints alike, and looks good doing it.

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

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 monstrous subwoofer for Altec Lansing's Expressionist Ultra MX6021 2.1 PC speaker set looks like it is capable of rattling the pictures off your wallsand your neighbor's. Obviously, power isn't everything when it comes to subwoofers, but this...

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's Expressionist Ultra produces quality audio at moderate levels but suffers from distortion at high volumes.

The Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 is a stylish looking set of 2.1 PC speakers that sounds loud with deep bass and very bright highs. Purists may not fall for the subtle mid range but its overall pleasant sound make it a good buy in this...

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...

The Altec Lansing Expressionist Ultra MX6021 PC-speaker system offers a pleasing combination of stylish design and hearty performance

Impressive sound quality for the money ; Stylish design ; Very strong bass ; Good connectivity options ; Desktop controller for power, volume, bass and treble

The speaker cables are on the short side and can't be extended because they use proprietary connections

If you're concerned about the idea of placing a pretty beefy subwoofer in your room -- it's hard to conceal -- the Ultra probably isn't the system for you. Those who live in close proximity to others should also take note that the sub pumps out enough...

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.

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

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

Wow ; These speakers have outstanding bang for your buck ; Very good sound quality with minimal background hiss

Short cables and rather expensive
