AT A GLANCE
Spacious bipolar sound
Ample bass for a desktop speaker
Slightly edgy midrange at high volume levels
Def Tech’s desktop speaker succeeds in bringing dynamic hi-fi sound to the home office.
Most early examples of desktop computer speakers were funny-looking, bad-sounding, cheaply constructed things. There were exceptions (models from Audioengine come to mind), but these tended to be rare. Although things have improved somewhat since then, any new desktop speaker trying to earn some respect still has its work cut out for it.
