Genius SW-HF5.1 5000

 

Today we're going to review the Genius SW-HF5.1 5000 mid-end 5.1 PC multimedia home theater speaker system. This modern audio system costs somewhere around £67.60 and US$115. Powered by a total of 150 watts RMS and designed to work exceptionally well...

Genius SW HF5.1 5000 review

 

The wooden veneer and the sheer size make this set more suited to living rooms than PC setups. We don't normally like subwoofer-mounted controls, but they're fairly accessible here. There's no headphone output, though.

Genius SW-HF5.1 1200 review

 

Genius's SW-HF5.1 1200 set is made from maple veneer, but its garish silver grilles spoil the effect.

Price/Performance Match

 

Easy to install ; Sub Woofer Has good audio characteristics for the size ; Satellite speakers have good sound quality for the size. It is perfect for a single computer area or a small apartment ; I purchased two sets of these for two offices and they...

Satellite speakers are only 2-way response spectrum. This is not a bad thing- it is what is standard in this category of multimedia speaker systems. The balance can be adjusted with the audio controller in the desktop system ; Tested this with a PCIe...

Great Speakers

 

I use them for my computer mostly for gaming, can't go wrong here the sound is surperb and when watching DVD's its like sitting in a theater with everything cranked up. Bass is really loud and I find I often have to turn it down, or face the wrath of...

Some static, I had a problem with interference when I first got them but that was on my end

Some difficulty

 

Very nice sound for the price. I ran into some trouble while setting them up, but once i figured it out everything ran nice

some of the wires aren't long enough, but if you know your way around wiring then that wont be a problem

Quality matches the price...

 

Cheap isn't worth the price if you're really looking for a little bang for your buck. Better off with Logitech or Creative speakers around this same price range. You won't be able to setup the speakers at lengths of your choosing but you'll appreciate...

Price seems very enticing. Comes with a remote and uses standard speaker cable so you can create any length you want

Cheap sound. Distorts at higher volume. Have to crank 5.1 surround sound movies in order to hear them. Batteries fried in the remote control. After 4 months of ownership, one of the front speakers began to give a very awful sound like tin foil getting...

Genius SW 5.1 1000 - 25W RMS Quality 6-Piece Speakers with Powerful 5" Driver Wood Subwoofer - Retail

 

Lightly stuff the subwoofer box with pillow stuffing to cut the volume and lower the frequency response. It will bring a bit more 'punch' at the expense of clarity.

A big sound for the modest price. It honestly surprised me. At half-volume, the subwoofer was rattling a metal grate in our drop ceiling. Plenty of cables and mounting hardware.

The subwoofer is kinda muddy -- the crossover should be set lower.

Genius SW-5.1 3000 75 Watts 5.1 6-piece PC gaming speaker system

 

Overall, a very nice system and excellent surround sound.

Nice crystal clear quality ; The base shakes the windows

No bantam jacks from speakers to the bass box, Old style wires and clips. The remote control has a very short range and must be pointed directly at the box to adjust the volume
