Creative GigaWorks T40 Review
The Creative GigaWorks T40 multimedia speakers look different (being taller than the standard speakers) and are considers among the best offerings from Creative. The speakers are deep but have a slender look about them. A soft dome tweeter and two woven glass fibre cones enhance the performance of these speakers. While the GigaWorks T40 multimedia speakers are designed for PCs, they are also compatible with iPod and portable DVD players. The sound experience is even better when you add headphones. The sound produced by these speakers is rich with deep bass. The technology in use ensures that you get distortion free sound.
Creative has been releasing its multimedia speakers one after the other and now has more than 20 models to showcase. The GigaWorks T40 multimedia speakers are 12.5 inches in height, but with the other dimensions being 4.5in x 6in, these speakers do not occupy too much space on the desktop. The GigaWorks T40 belong to the range of 2.0 system multimedia speakers with impressive drivers. Designed in glossy black finish, these speakers add a classy touch to your home theatre system. The length could look awkward at times, but when properly placed, the speakers look alright. There are two speakers as part of the Creative GigaWorks T40. The right speaker has all the controls for volume, treble and bass. Knobs have been provided instead of buttons and this allows you to adjust the sound components perfectly. Both of the speakers are slightly angled towards the top, allowing the sound to travel towards you. The top of each speaker has BasXPort controls, allowing you to enhance the bass when you need to. The Creative GigaWorks T40 speakers have a 2-meter stereo audio cable, 3.5-mm jacks and a stereo 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter for hooking up your TV or DVD player. Any multimedia player with headphone or line-out jack is compatible with these. There is also an optional Creative Docking Station X-30 that you can use to attach your iPod to the rear end of the right speaker. Apart from the power connector, there is also a connector to the left one. There are two slight issues with these speakers : (1) the power button is located at the rear and may sometimes be difficult to reach, and (2) the right speaker has an unusually bright blue LED that can be distracting.
What is the sound quality ?
Creative GigaWorks T40 produces lifelike sounds, quite rich to the ears. The inbuilt amplifier is able to deliver 14 watts per channel. While you cannot attach a subwoofer to the speakers, you can use one of the many 2.1 systems from the market to enhance the bass.
Conclusion: should I buy it ?
If you are not worried about the length of the speakers, then you should go ahead and purchase the Creative GigaWorks T40 multimedia ones. With a rich sound quality and proper adjustment controls, these speakers certainly enhance your multimedia experience. The GigaWorks T40 are high-end speakers and thus not the cheapest around.
