    Well that is good news. I'm interested in seeing how you wall mount the sub, if that is what you end up doing.

    You have to be kidding me...
    Why was this not posted 10 days ago? My order from The Audio Insider is in FedEx's hands, and even if I were to return it now I would end up paying some $30 in shipping fees to save about $30 on this guy's price.
    This is what I get for mulling over the decision to buy these for 9 months... :eek:


    Hope the speakers are treating you well. I'll be receiving mine on Monday...
    Post some pics of how you set them up!

    I had to wait two weeks. a day after I order I get a tracking number. when it did not show I checked the fedex number and it was not delivered to me but to another state. I called and they good and sent me the wrong tracking number. Of course they were all out and I had to wait till they were in stock again.

    Wow, you found a great deal on the speakers. I received my set on Monday and have been listening to all different kinds of genre's of music so far. I like the speakers and the sound IMO is real good.

    My Swan M10s arrived yesterday. They are satisfactory for my use and no less crappy than any other set of computer speakers I've heard. I use them with my uMBP and a PS3 that are both hooked up to a Dell 3008WFP.

    I am happy with them so far although I am trying to take the face plates off to paint them an aluminum color like the macs

    Just received and set up my M-10s. What's up with the shielding on these things?! I'm getting major radio interference, and they're not even connected to a signal source, just plugged in to the AC outlet! I suspect it's my old NuTone intercom system causing the interference, but I've never had this problem with any other speaker set. What do you guys think?

    Umm I do not have this issue, they're always on, connected to a MP and surge protector, and my phone is right next to them.

    OK. Well I read that computer speakers are usually not shielded very well, especially those with plastic cases. I'm working on a power line filter which should help. I'll report back

    I touched upon this on another thread that ended up being closed. The speakers look good, but in reality.. they are made in china, with cheap plastic, with a 65% mark up in price. Shielding is somewhat of an issue with this speaker set, as I said in the other thread. Some people experience it, some people don't. Chance you have to take for buying these things. I personally hate the Swan M10's, and don't recommend them. Swan's upper level stuff is pretty decent, but the M10's are their entry level products. It's junk.

    they sound decent for their price. of course they are not great what do you expect for 100.00 if you want really good sound you need to pay for it.

    Don't start this again. The discussion is fruitless and led to the other thread being closed.

    I hope that NEITHER of you start this again—nyguy4u's post did not necessitate a reply. We've heard both of your thoughts on these speakers. You both have had more than your say. I am personally more interested in hearing what other users think. This thread was actually starting to be a little bit useful.

    With respect to both of you, whose opinions I have read (and learned from) while lurking on this forum, I hope you will please let this one die and just accept that the other has a differing opinion. It only takes one person to end this—one of you PLEASE be the bigger person.

    well said they both had valid points but these speakers sound good listening to music and watching a movie. i am happy that I got these and for $85.00 you can not go wrong.....

    Good call. I figure neither can be the bigger person so they joined my ignore list. It's a pissing match.

    DEE9299 did you wall mount your sub yet?

    I never meant to get things going. there will always be complaints and supporters of almost anything.
