You could definitely invest in speakers with an amplifier and get more for your money. But as far as self powered speakers that connect to a computer they really are very impressive. My friend and I watched a portion of Top Gun at an Apple Store where these were on display. The bass and high end sounds were impressive, sharp with a powerful bass. I would not scrimp and save to acquire these but if money were no big deal and I just wanted something to drive my computer audio -- I would add these to my collection.

What you need to remember is the actual quality of the audio files is probably as important as the speakers you play it through. Unless you are a professional musician, I'd be very surprised that your audio collection is of a high enough quality to really notice the difference with speakers costing this much...
Like someone else said, you're probably not going to notice the different between these and £100 - £200 pair.

I've not heard them but...... its a lot of money for speakers to run from a PC or Mac. I guess in a comparison with speakers at around £250 (Audica MPS 1 for example) you may not notice the £500 difference.

I have a pair of the soundsticks at £100 the difference in quality of sound compared to a similar priced stereo is amazing. The quality is superb. I expect there is a lot of difference between these and those ^^^ GLA-55s'
