Final Thoughts

The Corsair SP2500 is a great and timely product that aims high and hits many targets - Many that have not been in the realms of achievability for desktop speakers in the past. Key features like a well executed subwoofer enclosure, active crossover and bi-amping really take this system way above anything else out there at the moment.

When it comes down to real world listening, things get even better still. On offer; a level of balance tonal clarity and clever tuning that make for an enveloping and detailed soundstage. The likes of which really surprise us to be honest. Then that surprise turns to appreciation for a job well done.

What we really liked almost of all was that Corsair have covered everything that's important. And let it be said we have never seen a system in this class do that. There's always something that's been missed; the quality of the cables, the size of the sub or not having a tweeter; maybe even poor amplification. But that's just the thing, they've got everything right! - We almost had to rub our eyes to make sure it was true.

Inevitably the question of value comes up, and as always it's a subjective one. In our minds for $250 U.S. there has never been a better 2.1 system that we have received for testing. We feel that if this system had a European or exotic Hi-Fi brand name hanging off the front, the price would double without a doubt, and they'd still sell quite well not withstanding.
