The Expressionist ULTRA is really a wonderful set of speakers from Altec Lansing. During this review, I had an opportunity to visit my local Best Buy and listen to these speakers on display against several other sets in the same price range. I found that the Expressionist's had not only a much more balanced sound, but also a nice crisp high range and tight, defined bass from the subwoofer. There's no doubt that these sparkers will make a permanent addition to one of my home computer systems. I would also highly recommend them to anyone looking to pay a little extra and buy a nice set of computer speakers instead of cheaping out on a sub-$100 set - you do get what you pay for.
Wonderful and unique looks
Great sound quality
Control pod gives easy access to all controls as well as headphone/aux. in ports
Great build quality, the acrylic doesn't come off as "cheap looking" as some might think
Hissing got annoying when nothing was being played through the speakers
Lack of wireless remote
