Gamers Depot heeft vandaag de eerste review online gezet over de ProMedia 2.1 speakerset van Klipsch. Deze set is evenals hun alom geroemde V.2-400 speakerset THX gecertificeerd en is daarmee de eerste 2.1 THX speakerset voor de PC. Deze speakerset is niet simpelweg de V.2-400 minus twee speakers, maar bevat nieuw ontworpen satellietjes en subwoofer. Volgens Gamers Depot heeft dat zijn vruchten afgeworpen, en is de Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakerset de set die je in huis moet halen voor het ultieme geluid bij je PC. De prijs is met 200 dollar iets minder, maar zeker niet te hoog :
What really matters is how these things sound isn’t it? Under our listening tests we found that indeed the midrange has opened up even better, and that even though there is only one driver in the sub cabinet that our ears had a hard time telling the difference. In fact, if you place your feet on the sub while you’re playing it nice and loud you’ll give your feet a “footgasm”. Even though the actual enclosure on this sub is smaller than the 4.1’s, there is only one driver in there. This means that is actually has more effective airspace to work with.
[...] When listening to the 2.1’s via a multitude of input sources from MP3s to games, we couldn’t agree more that Klipsch has achieved their goal. There are a number of reasons why we feel this way. First, not everyone can even use 4.1, like those who have a personal CD player or a Sega Dreamcast, and just want to be able to hook into a system that will bring out the most in their gaming/listening experience. Second, there are tons of notebook users, or those that simply don’t have a 4-channel sound card who are also looking to upgrade their current run-of-the-mill speakers into something that can piss off their neighbors.[break]Als je niet tevreden bent met 2.1 geluid heeft Gamers Depot nog een tip: koop gewoon 2x deze set ($400) voor het ultieme 4.2 systeem :[/break]Doing this gives you two satellites in the front, two in the rear, one sub in the front, and one sub in the rear. This configuration has created the ultimate PC sonic experience for us, and our lives will never be the same at GD. Now that we’ve gone through an entire evening and a whole box of Depend undergarments listening to the Klipsch 2.1’s set up this way, we’ll have a hard time taking other 2.1 multimedia speaker systems seriously. There are few things in life cooler than playing a game, and not only hearing a bad guy walk up to you from behind, but also actually feeling it! It’s enough to send shivers down the ol’ spine. I know this costs almost $400.00 to do this, but hey! We’re talking PC sound to the extreme here, aren’t we? If you have the money this is something that you should seriously consider.
