With a price of approximately $400 it's an expensive system by PC sound standards. However as I have noted time and time again the DigiTheatre system delivers a fantastic sound experience for DD 5.1 movies. So good that it will rival many more expensive home theater systems. The only real flaw is the lack of proper 4-speaker gaming mode and a minor flaw is the lack of a headphone jack (which is an all too common flaw). This system offers by far the best DD 5.1 experience of any speaker systems we have tested and without doubt get our Surge of Approval award.
