    ... this model is no longer being sold. Unless you're referring to the GMX which sucks.

    If you've listened to the ol' Promedia 2.1 and compared it side by side with the GMX, you'll find that the bass handling of the GMX's satellites is bad. Besides this issue, the treble on the GMX is way too bright and jarring.

    The old Promedia 2.1's satellites were based upon the Klipsch Synergy 2 Quintet 2 series satellites which was a very good platform (the quintet 2 being made of mineral stone material / promedia - plastic, but of similar design), Klipsch became adventurous and went on the "ala B&W nautilus horn look" which gave birth to the GMX, and its not selling too well with most people dumping it out.

    Sadly, nowadays computer audio is going down hill and most people are not sound quality conscious anymore.

    Dethangel is right, computer audio has been going downhill these days. The GMX is in a totally different league from the Promedias, you'll find a much more well defined treble and cleaner bass. Problem is they don't sell them anymore, and second hand ones usually have a lot of power supply problems. I also own the Klipsch Ultra 2.0s, which are basically muddled up rubbish.

    Perhaps you can consider the Megaworks 210D (if you can find it, that is), it's more musical and neutral sounding than the Klipschs and costs about the same.

    Alternatively, give aego2 a try. For me it was between klipsch and aego2. Decided on aego2 after a 5mins demo at the shop
