    Swans D1010-MKII Rosewood Finish with 4 In. Woofers, March 14, 2017

    I wanted a new pair of computer speakers with good full range sound, without the need for a separate subwoofer. It’s pretty hard for small speakers with only a 2 or 3 inch woofer to deliver much bass or a full and satisfying sound. These D1010-MKII have 4 inch woofers and a dome tweeter. They have a rosewood finish wood cabinet and a ported classic speaker design. I am pretty impressed with the fit and finish and the rosewood veneer, black front panel and removable fabric grilles all look very nice. The controls and electrical connections and cables all seem to be of good quality. These aren’t tiny speakers and the substantial weight and size are about as large as what I was looking for, to be used as computer speakers. I have never been a fan of the pounding and boomy sound of a separate subwoofer but I do appreciate good bass and wide frequency response in high fidelity speakers. For their size, these are definitely nice sounding speakers. The pictures of these speakers really don’t do them justice. They look like high quality home speakers, only smaller. These are certainly much better than the usual plastic computer speakers that most people settle for. Based on the quality of construction and the performance and price, I think these Swans D1010-MKII are a good value.
    When it comes to speakers, size does matter. If you can accommodate the larger size of the D1080-IV, they have larger woofers (5.25 in.) and heat sinks on the back of the speaker for improved cooling for the amplifier circuitry. They are more expensive but I would be confident that they are very good speakers.
