Nog een review van de Cambridge SoundWorks FPS2000 speaker set. Deze is van ALive! en is hier te vinden. Enne, zo zien ze er ook alweer uit:
Next, let's talk about games . I'm sure what everyone is concerned about here is does this system adds to the positional audio experience ? Yap, it definitely does . I tried games like Episode 1: Racer ( a A3D 2.0 minus wavetracing title) and X-Wing Alliance ( DS3D ) and all positional cues sound crisp and excellent. Racer rocks hard especially and sometimes with the Jedi theme playing in the background, I thought I was Anakin Skywalker !
Additionally , I noticed that this baby brings Environmental Audio ( EAX ) titles more "Alive!" ( pun intended ) as it flawlessly executed the environment immersiveness that you are supposed to experience in an enclosed environment. Try Descent 3 if you don't believe me....
So what else is good about the FPS 2000 besides it's audio quality ? Well for starters, that irritating Auto-Power Off feature that is present in FPS 1000 has disappeared in this system. For another, there is a volume control knob that let's you turn off/on the power and adjust the front/rear speaker balance directly.
