  • Conclusion: This is just an amazing sound system. The technology of converting USB audio into true 5.1 surround sound is here and it is fabulous. I would be remiss if I did not mention that there was a constant low frequency "hiss" that came through each speaker using the USB connection.
  • Pros: Amazing detail, bass and over all sound, Truly immersive 5.1 sound when using the appropriate media
  • Cons: Slight low frequency hiss detectable when not being used to reproduce music or other source material.
