Onze engelse kameraden van Gamespot UK hebben een review van de Creative Labs (of noem het Cambridge Soundworks) DTTS-2500 5.1 Dolby Digtal speakers op hun site geplakt:
The DTTS-2500 is the latest PC speaker set from Cambridge Soundworks, a division of Creative Labs. This speaker set is a true 5.1 surround sound solution, complete with four satellites, a center channel speaker and a powered bass unit. There's also a control box with controls for bass output, surround field adjustments, center channel volume, and overall output. It also lets you configure the speakers for Dolby Digital, stereo, and four-point.
This last setting is key. For a long time now, gamers have had to choose between either four-speaker setups for game audio or 5.1 rigs for DVD audio. The DTTS-2500 lets you have both. You connect the speakers to both outputs on 3D positional sound cards, like the Sound Blaster Live or a Vortex 2 card. The card also has inputs for the DIN-like digital connector on the SB Live full version, as well as an RCA-style connector for AC-3 input from a DVD decoder card. It's one of the most flexible speaker setups I've come across. The plethora of controls can be a little daunting at first, but you'll soon be adjusting volume, pressing buttons for sound modes, and having a blast with your sound.
