Overall I was very impressed with the Hercules XPS510 speaker system. When I first looked at this speaker system I was not expecting very good sound at all due to its low price. However, upon further inspection of the unit I realised I was very wrong. The XPS510 provides top notch audio clarity, deep bass, strong vocal reproduction and excellent positional audio. For a recommended retail price of $AUD199 ($US89), you can not really go wrong if you purchase this system. Although I had a few minor quibbles, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I highly doubt that you will find a better speaker system for such a low price.
* Excellent value
* Good sound quality
* Ability to easily upgrade to Dolby Digital
* Detailed user manual
* Inconvenient speaker controls placement
