Corsair SP2200 Review Review
2 May 2012
Summary: Overall a loud and punchy system in the 2.1 range. Though it lacks a bit of clarity, the speaker set it not bad at all for that price (Rs. 5,500). Gamers wonï¿½t be disappointed. Budding audiophiles might want to look elsewhere, unless you have a strong penchant for a warm sound signature.
Pros: Loud and punchy, Compact size, Warm mids, good for vocals
Summary: Corsair's new line of audio products have quickly made the company a worthy brand choice for consumers and a strong competitor for its rivals in the PC audio market. Can the company's first budget entry continue the trend?
Corsair makes solid memory, computer cases, and power supplies and with a little work could also audio devices to their portfolio. They had a right idea with the SP2200 but somewhere in planning the execution fell short. There are several things that seemed almost overlooked or not thought out properly. The lack of separate drivers for low to mid/high range audile signals really hurts the overall sound quality.
Excerpt: Corsair blew our minds with its first speaker-building effort: The 2.1-channel SP2500 rocked hard. Now the company is back with a scaled-down system, the SP2200. This 2.1-channel set offers smaller and fewer drivers driven by a less-powerful amp. It also lacks the fancy tethered control module, but it’s $150 cheaper than its sibling. Can Corsair wow us again? Yes and no.
Pros: Very inexpensive (but not cheap).
Cons: Truncated high-frequency performance and hardwired cables.
Excerpt: At the start of the year we took a look at the very first speaker system from Corsair, the SP2500 . And if you managed to catch the review, you would have seen that we were really very impressed with the level of performance on offer. There is also a second set of terminals to allow for a second device to be connected as well as a set of headphones if required. The usual Corsair paperwork is again present and a warranty is offered for two years.
