Video Review #1191 Summary

Sponsored by: Antec
Review category: Audio
Manufacturer info: More info

The Antec Soundscience Rockus 3D/2.1 Speaker System has excellent build quality, clear highs & mids, deep bass, lots of inputs and won't break the bank. It's 150W in total, 25W for each satellite speaker & 100W for the subwoofer & the frequency response is 10Hz-20kHz. So it with fill a small to medium sized room and meets most listening needs. Bang for the buck, this is one of the best 2.1 speaker systems around.

Can you put the sat"s on the wall.

These things actually dont look or seem so good.

I wonder how these would compare to Klipsch Promedia 2.1s?

Anonymous

I have my doubts that this system would even be compare-able with Klipsh Promedia 2.1's. For that much money I would probably steer clear of these. All that virtual surround stuff is 90% marketing anyway. And no headphone jack? What's up with that?

This is speaker is no match for my Logitech Z-5500

Meh... pass. I can't believe Antec's making speakers though! I wish Logitech made computer cases. :(

Um... Rodney, in order for the sound demonstration to work, you'll need 5 condensor microphones placed all over the room near the wall

Besides, what I'm listening to only limits what my speaker can do as I have my computer connected to my HT receiver via 3 3.5mm to 6 RCA cable.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

Well, now we know what Rodney jams to xD

To be honest though, I'll just stick to headphones. Maybe one day I'll go extremely overkill with a floor speaker setup of which they'd be tall enough to touch the ceiling of my bedroom, and of course rattle the entire house with the addition of a humongous subwoofer.

A refrigerator-style subwoofer?

J/k. :)

Looks sweet, but $250? And down to 10Hz frequency response sounds a little optimistic...

Lol, when he started his sentence at 6:06 with "well it does not come with a...", for a second I went "huh? removable motherboard tray? for speakers?"

Very nice review Rodney "An now, is it really time to play?" haha =P what song is that? sounds like Booty Luv I like it a bit.

I've recently bought a 2.1 system, the Logitech Z323 I like it very much and it's got one heck of a sound and build quality especially for £35 but that antec one looks perfect.

"Maximum, Game".

The Bose one would probably be better, but Bose products are very expensive.
My Bose Wave Radio II was $550 (AUD), it was worth it though, that little thing sounds amazing.

I've actually listened to the Bose Companion 5 2.1 Speaker System at Costco and it's sound excellent as well, but my money would be on the Antec Soundscience Rockus 3D/2.1 Speaker System. And remember, the Bose Companion 5 2.1 Speaker System is double the price of the Antec Soundscience Rockus 3D/2.1 Speaker System.

No, 5.1 or 7.1 is completely different. This is at it's core a 3.1 speaker system, but has a 3D sst technology that gives the surround 3D effect.

A sub is not a sub if it does not pump up a lot of bass like an earthquake. :D
