PRODUCT FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
Anodized Aluminum Satellites
Anodized aluminum satellites reduce vibration and minimize distortion, resulting in clear mid and sparkling high-range sound. Plus 3D-tuned drivers deliver audio optimized for soundscience's 3Dsst™ technology.
Remote Control Pod
Easily adjust volume, 3D/music mode selection, muting and digital/analog input selection.
Active Subwoofer with Passive Radiator
The passive radiator creates an extended low frequency response, producing deep bass from a compact subwoofer enclosure, eliminating the need for a larger, bulkier subwoofer.
Optical (TOSLINK) Input
Allows for direct connection of digital audio outputs on video game consoles, home A/V components, CD players, DVD/Blu-ray players, and more.
Currently the rockus 3D is the lone product in the soundscience lineup, but that's likely to change soon given the headstrong entrance they've made. On paper the rockus 3D and its 150W of power is impressive, and I'm eager to see how well the 3Dsst technology works. Here's what soundscience has to say about it:
“3Dsst™ is a suite of DSP (digital sound processing) algorithms that create a virtual surround sound experience from 2.1 stereo speakers. The technology analyzes the frequency content and pan/positioning of sounds in the incoming audio stream, and then uses certain types of filtering and phasing to widen the sound stage and create the effect of listening to a much larger surround speaker system.”
