The first in the VS series, the VS1520 offers a peak power output of 6w and nominal power output of 3w. The VS1520 also features a distinctive design that includes acoustically transparent metal mesh grilles and metallic finished cabinets designed to fit alongside today’s stylishly built computers and monitors. In addition, the VS1520’s unique design lets users place it either horizontally or vertically, while still maintaining an aesthetically pleasing look. Furthermore, the Lansing VS1520 includes a front panel headphone jack and a jack to let users connect their MP3 player directly to the speakers without having to first disconnect the speakers from their PC. The Altec Lansing VS1520 (both speakers included) is priced at a very affordable $29.95.
