Sharky Extreme maakt ons blij met hun review van de MidiLand S4 7100. Dit Dolby Digital 5.1 speakersetje wordt geleverd met een krachtige subwoofer, 5 satellite speakers en een 'control module' die je ook in je 5.25" drive bay kan leggen.
Using a Sound Blaster Live! audio card with the 7100 proved to be a good match, as the customization of the Live!'s software mated well with the dynamic range of the 7100 speakers.
In Half-Life and Quake III: Arena particularly, the 7100 provided a superior audio experience in our opinion to the older Cambridge Soundworks speaker systems we've used the past year.
The rapport of gunfire from Half-Life's base MP5 assault rifle is a great high-treble/high-bass test, and even at a volume that was painful to endure from a range of 18", the 7100 satellites performed well.
The 7100's subwoofer is fairly competent, able to handle a good amount of bass while not audibly distorting, although with some MP3 songs and certain bass-heavy CD based hip-hop tracks we were able to overwhelm the unit at higher volume ranges.
The satellite speakers also suffered from being overwhelmed by bass frequencies at the higher volumes, although they did exhibit higher tolerances than the speakers of competitor units did.
