    Even Bose offers good quality speakers. It all depends on how much you're willing to spend. ;)

    I have been using MX-5021 for quite a long time - a great sounding THX certified system.
    Looks like it will go on for another 5 years. So I am not in a hurry to change.
    Anyways, what are the indian prices and availability? ( I bought the MX 5021 directly from Rashi Peripherals in Bangalore and I hope they continue to be the distributors for Altec Lansing.)

    Waiting for reviews. Any idea about pricing in Bangalore ? 200$ is like Rs. 10000. Thats too high for a 2.1 system unless its serious audiophile grade stuff.

    ^^ 5 amplifiers
    200W continuous power
    alien like design
    6.5" long-throw subwoofer

    but we can't know till it is fully tested and it dangerously falls in the zone of monitoring style speakers from Behringer and M-Audio and also touches Promedia GMX-A and Creative gigaworks speaker's price zone.

    One thing I am sure is that the price will settle down at 7k-8k after few weeks of release and that would make it a worthy successor to MX-5021.
