All I have to say is, for the size and cost of these speakers, WOW! I didn't know 21 watts could get you so far. I own a Megaworks 210D as well, and the PCworks really sounds almost as good, it just cant play as loud at all. But thats comparing a 270...

Amazing sound in general, Insane sound for their price and size.-Lots and lots of full, deep bass...9 watts never sounded so loud.-Extremely small, sub can be placed anywhere and the satallites couldnt be smaller.-Long wires, they are attached to the...

For their price, NONE AT ALL!--If you want to compare them to something like a Megaworks, ($200 more...) the PCworks cannot play as loud. The Megaworks will make you want to throw up and make your ears bleed though it gets so loud. As long as your not...

Once in a while, a real gem shows up on the market - often very unassuming to the point that you might pass over them. That would definitely be a mistake with these very compact speakers, as they must be one of the best values in a PC speaker on the...

Robust bass, very small cube satellites, very affordable price

Can be too brilliant when aimed at your ears at a PC - solved by aiming away

I had originally ordered a 480W satellite system with my new computer, but when I eventually got it the speakers looked (and sounded) from something you would get in a Cracker Jack Box. As a result, I headed down to the nearest Staples store looking...

Powerful Bass

A Little weak in the mid-range

I have the PCWorks hooked up to a 13" Aiwa stereo TV in my kitchen via the headphone output on the TV. The difference in sound between them and the TV's internal speakers is dramatic. They'd probably do a good job with a portable CD/MD/CS as well. They...

Excellent sound for the price

Speaker connections are hard-wired

Mr. Wit - get real. You cannot compare PCworks (US$39.00) to even the lowest-priced of the models you mention (NHT SuperZero are about US$300/pair, *plus* they require a high quality amp to really perform, kicking it up to at least US$600).If you are...

Price/performance ratio; impressive resolution in upper mid and high

Almost no lower midrange

Product Specifications

Just a few years ago, Cambridge SoundWorks changed the way people listened to music with computers, portable CD/tape players, boom boxes and TVs when they introduced SoundWorks - their first self-contained, amplified speaker system. The PCWorks is a smaller, more affordable alternative that can be plugged into a portable CD player, home computer, TV, clock radio or boom box - anything with a headphone jack - for rich, beautiful sound, including terrific bass. PCWorks has been carefully fine-tuned by Henry Kloss so that it produces the natural, accurate, wide-range sound normally associated with high-quality component stereo systems. Many people hear PCWorks for the first time and say, "Wow! That sounds better than my home stereo system!" PCWorks consists of a pair of very small (less than 3" x 3" x 3") desktop speaker cubes plus a compact, floor standing subwoofer cabinet. The desktop speakers are magnetically shielded, so they can be placed very close to a TV or a computer monitor. They contain a 2" long-throw driver that reproduces the high- and mid-frequencies. The compact subwoofer cabinet (only 9 1/4" x 6" x 6 3/8") reproduces only non-directional bass, so it can be placed out-of-the-way behind your TV, under your desk or in back of furniture. By putting the woofer in a separate cabinet from the mid/high-frequency speakers, PCWorks takes advantage of a room's natural acoustics. A woofer on the floor, near a wall, has four times the output of a woofer on top of a desk or table.
