Antec Debuts New soundscience™ rockus™ Speaker System New 2.1 loudspeaker delivers full high-definition 3D performance Fremont, CA – November 18, 2010 – Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the formation of soundscience™, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Antec, and introduces the all new soundscience™ rockus™ 3D | 2.1 speaker system. The soundscience rockus 3D |2.1 speaker system is designed to create a personal theater experience, bringing the power and realism of 3D sound together with the clarity and accuracy of high-fidelity audio, making it an ideal solution for experiencing game and movie sound in 3D. soundscience’s 3D audio technology, 3Dsst™, is a suite of DSP (digital sound processing) algorithms that create a virtual surround sound experience from 2.1 stereo speakers. 3Dsst actively analyses incoming stereo audio signals and intelligently places them into a 3D sound field, resulting in immersive 3D sound for your movies and games from 2.1 speakers. The soundscience rockus also boasts a dedicated music mode optimized for organic stereo sound reproduction, letting users hear music with deep, visceral sub-bass; powerful, spacious mids and crisp highs. The soundscience rockus 3D |2.1 speaker system’s satellites are made entirely from anodized aluminum which reduces distortion caused by enclosure vibration and rattling that plagues traditional PC speakers. Additionally, its subwoofer utilizes passive radiator technology to deliver an expansive range of bass comparable to larger footprint subwoofers. “Given the increasingly large role that digital media plays in our day-to-day lives, we feel the soundscience rockus 3D |2.1 offers a sleek, well-balanced compact speaker system solution that’s easy to use and delivers a crisp, powerful audio experience to a wide-range of users,” says Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. “This speaker system delivers the enveloping audio experience of a conventional home theater system – without any complicated setups or messy difficult cabling. Plus, with analog and optical connectivity, it’s easy to get well-produced 3D sound from your computer, tablet, game console, mp3 player or any audio gear.” Key Features: · Anodized aluminum satellites that reduce vibration and minimize distortion, resulting in clear mid and sparkling high-range sound · Active subwoofer with passive radiator technology, delivering an expansive range of bass comparable to larger footprint subwoofers · 3D-tuned drivers to deliver audio optimized for soundscience’s 3Dsst technology · Dual-mode operation: 3D mode for enveloping games and movies, and music mode for faithful stereo music playback · Optical input for playback of digital audio from game consoles (Xbox 360, PS3,) and other, similarly equipped devices · Remote control pod for volume adjustment, 3D/music mode selection, muting and digital/analog input selection The soundscience rockus 3D |2.1 speaker system is backed by Antec’s Quality 2-Year (AQ2) Limited Warranty on parts and labor, and is available now for an estimated price of $249.99 at Amazon.com, Fry’s Electronics and Antec’s Online store at http://store.antec.com.

LOL! The Antec name is mud around a lot of circles after the dying PSU's killing internal PC components debacle a few years ago.
BTW: I get kick ass sound from my $85.00 set of JBL Creature II 2.1 speakers. I have three sets.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I hadn't heard of that Antec failure before, Neil. About how long ago was this?

realneil is a fool. he's on facebook always trashing Antec on their fanpage. i'm a fan of antec (yea i admit it) and i see realneil posting terrible comments all the time.
to be honest, these speakers are great. you have to just try them for yourself. i bought a pair and am very happy with my purchase.
