The Most Melodious – Genuine High-End Audio System

1. The first PC designed by high-end audio specifications

The AE2220 Hi-Fi is equipped with high-end audio speakers never before seen in average PCs. It is also the first in the industry to use two continuous power handling, full-range 5W hi-fi speakers, integrate a high-end acoustic structure, and provides an independent right and left channel speaker Acoustic Suspension System, which naturally extends low frequencies. The result is a perfect high-end audio PC that provides users with an unprecedented surround sound sensation and the coziness of its low frequency range. Listening to the warm, deep bass is like immersing yourself in a whole other environment.

2. Magnesium-aluminum alloy membrane speakers

The AE2220 Hi-Fi uses a high-end acoustic metal membrane design to create a high-density sound sensation that reveals the pleasant and thick bass of voice audio that even some premium audio isn't necessarily capable of providing. Through MSI's Premium Sound Technology, every level of sound detail has a higher resolution rate, enabling every detail and level of a symphony to be heard clearly and distinctly.

3. Patented noise-canceling technology creates pure & clean sound

Exclusive Noise-Canceling Technology can reduce the intensity of unnecessary signal transmissions and eliminate irritating static noise to provide a warm, comfortable, and harmonious sound quality that increases listener comfort. Even after extended use, listeners will still feel at ease.

4. High power handling capacity creates true fidelity sound

Compared with average PC stereo, AE2220 Hi-Fi has higher power handling capacity with output sound pressure level (SPL) up to 82dB (average PC stereo SPL is around 78~80dB).

5. Extensive sound with instant dynamic range of 8W 

MSI Premium Sound Technology provides a broad, instant sound dynamic range of up to 8W of power, and volume enhancement of 3-6dB. During the climactic moments of a movie or symphony, the sound will not break up or reveal distortion.
