ANTEC SOUNDSCIENCE ROCKUS 3D INTRODUCTION
It's only February, and 2011 is already shaping up to be an exciting year in the world of PC audio. Companies that previously didn't offer speaker systems have entered the market with bold new products that feature impressive build quality and specs but also come at a premium price.
Recently Tweaknews had the opportunity to check out Corsair's SP2500 2.1 speaker system and while it's pricey, it demonstrated exceptional sound quality through all frequencies. There's a new kid in town though - a 2.1 system that comes in at the same price as the SP2500. Enter the Rockus 3d 2.1 speaker system from Soundscience.
You may not have heard of Soundscience, but you will soon because they are a newly-formed subsidiary of a well known name in the PC enthusiast market - Antec. Some of the best and most popular cases, power supplies, and PC accessories sport the Antec logo, but how well can they do PC speakers? I'm about to have a listen to the Rockus 3D 2.1 system and find out.
