Bij Legion Hardware heeft men een review gemaakt van de Altec Lansing ACS56. De ACS56 is de grote broer van de ACS54 en heeft dus evenals de ACS54 een 4.1 configuratie. De set beschikt over een coaxiale S/PDIF-ingang. De geluidskwaliteit is over het algemeen goed, behalve als je het apparaat op vol volume zet wil het nog weleens gaan kraken. Het apparaatje wordt beoordeeld met 87,5%:
Well as the computer becomes a more versatile piece of equipment, the sound quality of a computer only becomes more important. Gone are the days of the computer just being used as a work tool and nothing more. Now the home PC can be the entertainment centre of the house. This is made possible by the huge array of things that we can now purchase for the home computer, such as DVD players, increasing realistic games and so on.
There is no question that the ACS56 are a better system for gaming than music, lacking a bit when it comes to high-end isnít really important while the low frequency sound of explosions becomes more important. As you already know I found the ACS56 subwoofer to be quite good and loud so no surprise that the ACS56 performs even better as a gaming system than for music. As mentioned the ACS56 has a separate bass and surround control in addition to the master volume to get the proper front-rear speaker balance and as bass heavy sound experience you want. In my opinion this set that Altec Lansing have come up with is the perfect solution for your audio needs. They deliver a very versatile and quality package for not a huge price in my opinion. At only around $350 AUD this is a very reasonable price for what you get. At first it does sound like a lot, but when you listen to the quality of what you are getting you will realise that this is value for money. Or at least in my opinion.
