Engadget Summary

There's no question these speakers will deliver great sound to your desktop, if you're prepared to spend $500, and if the audio files on your PC are up to the task. The downside is that these speakers are truly designed for just one task. Don't consider them for your home theater or iPod; they're designed to get optimal sound out of a computer, via a direct USB connection, and to be used on a desktop. That may make it hard to justify spending $500 on them, but if you spend your days sitting at your desk listening to lossless files, they may well be worth it.
