Cubite speaker has USB hubs
The Cubite sounds like some sort of minion from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser series, but it is actually much more tame and less violent than that. Heck, it functions as a peace loving device, meant to enhance audio from the computer without ditching either style or functionality – something that more and more hardware manufacturers are moving towards in today’s world as they compete with one another for your hard-earned dollars. Enter the Cubite – touted to be the first computer speaker with integrated USB hubs, all packaged into a rather hip and contemporary style.
Its distinctive cube shape design with a gloss black finish is sure to complement any desk. Once on, the Cubite will radiate a subtle orange light highlighting key buttons and the four USB ports. This stereo PC speaker delivers an impressive 3 Watts (RMS) of crystal clear sound quality with separate bass and treble controls. The full range stereo speakers and hub are magnetically shielded, thus preventing any interference from the computer or other electrical equipment. The Cubite comes with two separate leads, the USB lead provides power to the speakers and hub and the 3.5mm stereo jack provides the sound, this increases flexibility, for example, it’s very easy to have a computer powering the speakers and a MP3 player supplying the sound. If that’s not enough, the Cubite also features the following :-
- Stereo computer speaker
- USB powered, no AC adaptor required
- Plug and play, no software required
- Treble and bass controls for optimal sound tuning
- On/off switch located at the centre of the item
- On/off is indicated by a subtle orange LED
- Total output is 3W RMS
They currently retail for £29.99 a pop, but you must order at least half a dozen Cubites before they will ship it over to your address. My suggestion? Get a bunch of mates to weigh in so that everyone else can enjoy the audio wonder known as the Cubite. As for the effectiveness of its function, that is a pretty subjective matter where your ears are the judge.
