3D SoundSurge heeft een flinke review gepost van de Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Theater 5.1 DTT2500 Digital speakerset. Check alle info hier.
The DTT2500 comes with a box that has the amplifier and the Dolby Digital decoder that features a 24 bit Digital to Analog Converter (DAC). This DAC is also used when connecting the box to a Sound Blaster Live card with Creative’s proprietary DIN connector. The box offers options for setting the volume of the subwoofer, rear and center speakers in addition to the master volume control. This allows you to have significantly louder or weaker sound from the rear and/or center than from the front or even make the rear and/or center speaker completely silent. However, it's not possible to make the front speakers silent without also making the rear and center speaker silent. The box is also used to select one of the several modes these speakers can be in.
The modes that are possible when using the analog connections are Dolby Prologic, Music, Movie, FourPoint, stereo, left or right channel. The option of only hearing the left or right channel is intended for Video CD discs where the two channels are used as an easy way of having two languages on the same CD. The FourPoint mode makes the speaker work just like Cambridge SoundWorks' FPS2000 system. That is, the two front speakers get the input from the soundcards first line out and the two rear speakers from the soundcards second line-out (or whatever you connected to the line-in and rear-in on the Decoder Amplifier box) while the center speaker is silent. If you only have connection to the Line-in you'll only hear sound from the two front satellites in this mode (I've seen other reviews saying it will copy the front sound to the rear channels but that's not true). If you choose stereo mode you will only hear sound from your 2 front speakers even if you have some input to the rear in.
