Final Thoughts

 

It seems Hercules is aiming itself towards the budget end of the market these days, which might prove to be a cunning move with all the financial troubles facing the world.

 

However, it's unfortunate that so many systems are given fluffy woofers instead of real genuine sub woofers, but it is the most expensive part of a system and must be factored in against what the company hopes the RRP will be in the end.

 

Notwithstanding, performance genuinely turned out to be better than I could have expected, which is a credit to the design of the system and the components used in its construction.

 

Games and movies would be the most comfortable for this system, but it doesn't mind a little music at moderate volume levels. I encountered zero issues installing the system and also with its day to day operation; another credit to build and design.

 

So, the inevitable question poses itself once more; is the XPS 2.150 worth $69 AU? The answer is yes! For the moderate to light user it certainly is and is even considered by myself to be really good value for that $69 AU.
