Antec Rockus Speakers Use DSP to Rock You Like a Hurricane

by Shane McGlaun

I am a big fan of surround sound for everything from my home theater in the living room to my computer. The catch is that I don’t really want wires running across the room; or rather my wife doesn’t want that. That means in the living room I have a 2.1 speaker system that has enough bass to vibrate the nuts off a gnat to make up for the lack of surround sound. My computer is the same way, 2.1 is all I can fit in the office.

Having to go with a 2.1 speaker system doesn’t mean poor sound quality though; Antec has a nice new 2.1 system. The speakers are called the soundscience rockus 3D | 2.1 and it uses DSP tech inside to simulate surround sound. DSP tech can do a decent job of making it seem that sound is coming from behind you in some instances.

The Antec speakers have plenty of power with 150W total. Each of the satellites get 25W of power and the sub gets 100W alone for deep bass. The enclosures are aluminum for no rattles. The speakers also have a single optical audio in to connect with game consoles and more. Frequency response is 10Hz to 20Khz and the speakers are available right now for $249.99 for the set.
