In the past when thinking of PC audio, GIGABYTE weren't the first name to come to mind. Traditionally specialising in motherboards and graphics cards, it's going to be interesting to see what they have come up with in terms of high-end PC audio with their latest 2.1 Speaker System I'll be checking out today.
The high-end PC audio market has changed dramatically over the years as we see many more companies like GIGABYTE and ASUS now making high-end audio gear. This is a real shift from traditional manufacturers like Klipsch, Videologic, Altec Lansing leading the market in the past; it's also great for competition which always means lower street prices for the consumer.
Coming back to GIGABYTE though, when you consider the materials and associated costs it all looks very promising. Kevlar cones are a first in PC audio, these usually something only seen in home audio with MDF cabinets all round. You don't even see them in the $1,200 Videologic X-Fires I reviewed many moons ago. GIGABYTE has even added some dome tweeters to boot. This was laughable in the past for PC audio, and for so many years I awaited someone to do exactly what GIGABYTE has done here.
Let's get them up and running and take a look at a technical overview of the speakers' characteristics.
