The review that convinced me is here

The bit about the deaf neighbour is on page 9. They are billed as PC
speakers, but frankly they have done me well as Home Theatre speakers.
They could do with an update to cover the newer HD audio codecs and an
hdmi input, but it's a real testament to them that they are still
being sold 7 years after that 2004 review. How many tech components
have been around that long? And here they are still selling for much
the same price, despite the NZ $ steadily climbibg over that time.
That the market can still stand something close to the original price
all these years later also says something good about them :)
