Hands on with the Rockus 3D Speaker System
by Mark R
We reported on the Antec soundscience Rockus 3D 2.1 speaker system before, and I got a chance to try it out for myself.
The soundscience Rockus 3D 2.1 speaker system is designed for those that are into 3D gaming or movies on their home theater. Some of you, like myself, are probably wondering how the 3D sound works on this.
After all, isn’t 3D a visual thing, not audio? However, I believe that the idea of the sound is to project the sound so you will feel something go by your face like it was actually there.
3D is just one of the modes of this speaker systems, and it can be turned to normal music mode from the weird wired remote that looks like a tiny can. It controls the volume by turning the top. Don’t ask me why there isn’t a wireless remote.
I found that the speakers and the sub-woofer are pretty loud, and are definitely worth trying out for yourself. I have no idea how well the 3D will work for you, and you might have to find your personal sweet spot.
I believe that the last time we reported on this sound system, it cost about $249. I’m not certain why the price drop, but it is now a cost of $199 here.
