GX Gaming, which is the gaming peripheral division of Genius, continues to make a serious push to be more than merely relevant in the industry. They have developed some great gaming mice, keyboards, headsets and speaker systems and they clearly have no plans of slowing down.

Considering the long-term success of the Genius brand and from what we’ve seen from GX Gaming so far, it is a safe bet to say that this system, at the very least, will not be a disappointment.

    Have you heard a lot of speaker? What speakers would you say these compared too?

    1. Greg Schepers

      Hello PhilH. Yes, I have heard my share of speakers. My previous PC speakers system was a Harman Kardon 2.1 surround system. It is difficult to compare systems unless you are able to listen to them side-by-side, but I will say that this Genius GX Gaming system is, at the very least, among the best 2.1 PC systems that I have ever heard. The bass especially exceeded my expectations. They look cool, sound great… I doubt you’d be disappointed.

    Which one is better – Logitech Z323 or this one?

    1. Greg Schepers

      Hi Dust. I have never tested the Logitech Z323 system, so it would be unfair for me to tell you which is better. What I can tell you is that, when you compare the features and specifications, The Genius GX Gaming system wins that battle. So, on paper, it is the more capable system.

    Just got sw-G2.1 2000 speaker system, I hear a constant thumping coming from the sub speaker when power is applied tried disconnecting output jack from computer no difference. Is ths normal for this speaker system?

    1. Olin Coles

      No, it’s not normal… unless you’ve run the cables across a power cord or near to some other energy conductor. Try plugging them in somewhere where there’s nothing powered and see if they make the same sound.
