Listening impressions

To put the sound quality into test I used the SP2500's as my everyday speakers for a couple of weeks. This period covered everything from intense FPS-gaming to watching movies and ofcourse lots and lots of music listening. In short the SP2500 is the first computer speaker set that I never felt lacking in sound quality. No matter what the use, I just never felt like switching back to my other speakers.

Compared to the SP2200 the SP2500 has none of the drawbacks, the sound is clean and crisp throughout the range without any muddiness in the sound and most importantly the subwoofer is a real subwoofer, with the crossover frequency varying between 100 and 140 Hz. Granted, it's still a bit high for a sub-crossover, but you really need to concentrate to notice the switch. The subwoofer itself is also loud and goes down to pretty much the promised 35 Hz without problems.



Conclusion


PROS 
  • Sound quality
  • 3 inputs
  • Controller

    CONS 
  • No digital input
  • Award


    In short the SP2500 is the best set of computer speakers I've seen and heard. Physically the set is in a whole another league when compared to the SP2200 and other smaller sets. The satellite speakers seem and feel very high quality and sturdy and the subwoofer is huge. As a nice touch there's also a separate remote controller.

    For connectivity there are three analog stereo inputs. Now this is really the only big con that I can think of - why is there no digital input? In the Reviewer's Guide Corsair claims that the target user for the SP2500 will already have a high quality sound card and will want to use the settings and gaming effects. On the other hand I don't think a simple stereo DAC would be a costly addition to an already pretty expensive speaker set.

    The sound quality of the set should be enough for everyone, and while the SP2500 is meant for near field listening, it can also output enough sound to fill a larger room. If you're looking for a stereo setup for your computer, the set should definitely be on the top of your list.
