Aureal gaat net zoals Creative Labs eigen speakers bouwen. Hier heb je de info uit de press release bij GA-Source:
It was really just a matter of time, and truly the best thing to do. Aureal today announced its plans for a Fall 1999 introduction of high-quality speaker products.
The new speakers will initially be distributed via Aureal's Web store and will be offered in conjunction with Aureal Vortex sound cards. Both 2.1 and 4.1 speaker/subwoofer configurations will be available, with an easy upgrade from 2.1 to 4.1 systems, delivering a full 210 watts.
Aureal's new speaker products will work with Aureal Vortex sound cards to provide advanced features including auto-calibrate, which uses a microphone to receive test tones and tunes the system to deliver the best possible audio performance for a particular speaker configuration and room set- up. Another key feature is a one-touch control and display, located on one of the satellite speakers, which enables volume, bass, fader and other characteristics to be quickly and easily controlled and synchronized with software controls on the computer.
