The design is quite nice. The "remote" wire is fairly discreet and convenient as can both adjust the volume, turn off the speakers and plug headphones.
The advantage of this kit is that it does not breath when no sound is supposed to come out, unlike the very low end kit.
However, reliability is not an appointment. The volume must be high enough that all sounds are made. And especially the 2.1 kit quickly turned into quasi-1.1 as the connection for the left speaker not working well.
In my opinion, to prevent these reliability problems.
