Be careful of the overpowering uncouth subwoofer!Mar 02, 2014
By Ritenour/Grusin fan
This T6 series II is actually the successor of the not-so-well-liked Zisound T6. The cosmetics of the satellites has improved (the top of the satellites is now a shiny metal plate), and maybe some minor tweaks elsewhere in the subwoofer and electronics.
Overall, the weak point of this system is similar to that of the Zisound T6: the overly boosted and uneven bass response. Even at the minimal bass output level, the woofer is exceedingly boomy. Worse, at this lowest setting, there are times when the music sounds like it has light bass, and then at certain bassy parts, the bass suddenly ramps up in your face! This is a sure sign of very uneven bass response and poor crossover tuning. This alone makes the T6 series II very unpredictable in bass behaviour, just like its predecessor, and unworthy of music-heavy use. Probably can pass muster as a home theatre sound system for the undiscerning.
The immediate solution that comes to mind is to use equalization to tame the subwoofer. Set the output to the lowest level and then use a 1/3-octave EQ to adjust how it resonates in the placement area. Avoid putting it in corners, raise it high off the floor, and do not have the passive side radiators pushing air into anything nearby. You should get a tamer bass character when there is lots of bass in the music, but in the quieter passages, the bass may then sound slightly lacking. Try figuring out the crossover point to the satellites and use equalization to smoothen the bell-shaped frequency response and uneven Q. (just a reference for this term; see [...])

Absolutely Awesome SoundFeb 05, 2014
By S. E. Platt
These speakers are very good!! While typing this review, I'm jamming Grover Washington Jr. and these speakers are delivering very crisp sound - the Tenor Sax, percussion, piano, vocals, and strings are all very clear from the lowest volume to a full blast. Earlier today I jammed some Hip-Hop, R&B, Classic Soul, and Soft Rock; the music was equally as enjoyable. I am very glad I purchased this set of speakers. I love being able to switch sources with the remote and with the "pod". With my Surface docked, I use the USB connection but this thing can also stream through Bluetooth. The small footprint desktop speakers (also wall mountable) are very nice looking and feel much better than the lighter speakers I played with in the stores.
I really don't think I could be happier with any other set of speakers. The Creative T6 Series II "Wireless"... speaker system are worth giving a shot. I believe these are newer than the Zii speakers that are also sold on Amazon (at a higher price than I paid for these). The specs are very similar. I haven't tried the sound with a movie yet but I expect the same quality. I can't speak to the durability as I've only had the speakers for a very short time.
I'm not an audiophile so I can't give you a very good "technical" review but I do listen to a lot of music across genres and the Creative T6 Series II ... Speaker System handles them all well.
