[MS] Antec Soundscience Rockus 3D 2.1 Speaker System [REVIEW]

post #1 of 13

NOTE: Had to remove pic...

Being curious about the proprietary 3Dsst™ technology these speakers come with, I have powered and connected them to the Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD sound card on the optical interface; it is needed to mention that enabling Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect from the software interface of the sound card simply resulted in getting absolutely no sound from the speakers; it is recommended to feed the Rockus 3D 2.1 speakers stereo signal through the optical cable (in the X-FI Titanium HD case, we have to leave the Encoder menu with the Off option selected).

Looks like these aren't up to Par, hence the price reduction...

Why the surprise at getting no sound from a dumb 2.1 set up when you feed it a 5.1 signal? That's like me taking my old minidisc player with its optical input and getting arsey when it doesn't understand how to decode DTS. I'm actually stunned.

Any company who makes speakers that aren't dedicated solely in making professional acoustic products should not even be considered as a speaker system.
Shhhhh!
