The design of the BXR1121 feature
two black satellite speakers and a subwoofer that have a sleek
yet modern design. Best of all, the BXR1121 come with a
universal MP3 cradle that will allow the user to easily connect
their MP3 player without fiddling with a plethora of cords.

The installation of the BXR1121 was

however this can also be achieved via the PC.
We first tested the BXR1121 with a
variety of CD's, both modern and classical and we were quite
surprised at the quality of audio that was outputted by the
speakers. The audio of the BXR1121 boasted clarity and
sharpness, whether it was listening to Mozart or Pink.
For those lovers of Bass, the
amount of bass available was quite impressive and you could feel
this operate through the speakers. MP3's were also a similar
experience to audio CD's and the speakers could produce a rather
large amount of volume.
Games such as Call of Duty and
BioShock truly enhanced the gaming experience and you could
actually hear each shot and explosion that gave the feeling you
were actually in the line of fire. Even the background ambience
of these games came through and assisted in transforming the
gamer into these wondrous worlds.
Movies such as Star Wars Episode

mini-movie experience and although not as impressive as a
surround sound system, it was still a quite impressive cinematic
audio listening experience.
In conclusion, the BXR1121 is an
affordable speaker setup for your personal computer which can
purchased (online) for around $49AUD to $69AUD. Even though you
get what you pay for in the speaker world, the Altec Lansing are
a very good buy for low-end speakers and most users spending
this amount of money will definitely be pleased with the
