Cambridge Soundworks FPS2000 Digital Speakersby Jason Clark on July 18, 1999 12:47 PM EST

With today's onslaught of speakers into the multimedia market, your choice of speakers is plentiful. But making the decision of which speakers should make it into your home or office is a difficult one. It seems as though anyone who has some plastic and a set of paper cones can make a set of speakers these days. There have been some speakers that were worth the money manufacturers have asked for them, like the Microsoft DS-80's, Midland 4100's and the Cambridge Microworks. After listening to the lower end of Creative Labs' speaker line up, I was not terrible impressed by the weak sound that they produced. The new FPS2000's seem to breathe some new life into Creative Labs' speaker line up.
It seems that the acquisition of Cambridge Soundworks by Creative Labs was indeed a good move on Creatives' part.
Cambridge Soundworks brings years of experience in building speakers. Cambridge Soundworks was initially co-founded
by Henry Kloss in 1988. Henry Kloss has been a major player in the home audio market since 1952 when he co-founded Acoustic Research.
Since then, he has been involved in such companies as KLH and Advent, which are both successful players in the audio market.
What does all this mean? Well, essentially you have a solid foundation of audio knowledge (i.e. Cambridge Soundworks) behind some very good marketing (i.e. Creative Labs).

nyhcjedi - Friday, November 19, 2021 - linkHad to comment because I am still using my speakers in my work shop connecting via a Bluetooth dongle to my PC. I listen to hardcore rap, Sludge metal, hardcore punk,and scandinavian death metal and these bad boys absolutely crank. I'm looking to replace them for something with some serious noise but these are the best i have ever owned 4.1 SS with a sub. Love it. Peace
