A massive upgrade from the Creative Labs I-Trigue and SBS speaker systems, the GigaWorks G550W offers a whopping peak power output of 620w (versus 8/48w), nominal power output of 310w (versus 4/24w), and frequency response of 35Hz-20kHz (versus 40/90Hz-20kHz). The G550W also contains one audio line-in jack, one SPDIF input jack, and one headphone jack. In addition, the G550W features a wireless/infrared remote, plus each speaker includes a Flared DynaPort for extended lower midrange sound, a keyhole for quick/easy optional wall mounting, spring-clip speaker wire connectors, and a removable stand for desktop placement. The Creative Labs GigaWorks G550W is priced at $299.99 and is considered a formidable competitor to Altec Lansing, Bose, and Sony computer multimedia systems.
