The Tech Report met with Antec at Computex and discovered the company will soon get into the high-end computer speaker business through its subsidiary Sound Science. The first product will consist of a big subwoofer and two aluminium-clad satellites with a price tag of around $200-250. The reporter got to hear a couple of short audio and movie clips and concludes the speakers delivered pretty nice sound.
Antec told us it's still in the process of tweaking the product, but it aims to produce a "balanced" sound via a big subwoofer and two aluminum-clad satellites. Inputs include optical, RCA, and 3.5 mm jacks; for our test, the speakers were connected via a 3.5-mm jack to a laptop's integrated audio. We got to switch back and forth between regular audio output and a 3D mode, which simulates a more voluminous sound stage while still using just two satellite speakers.
