ASUS Cine5 Five Channel Surround Sound Speaker - Final Thoughts

ASUS are amongst industry leaders in innovation. Today they squeeze surround sound into the smallest package of its kind in the world.

Final Thoughts

 

It's going to be interesting to track what happens in this bracket in the near future. Especially given there are other companies releasing very impressive wireless systems next month, which look almost the same as the Cine5 to boot.

 

The Cine5 is a great product in many ways, with strong listening results in several forms of testing. However, with an analog interface only, it must be said that the Cine5 has been designed for the market of yesterday. This will be seen when the latest high-spec wireless systems hit our shores in the coming weeks.

 

We also feel that if ASUS had provided the Cine5 with a simple digital connection or even USB, that expectation and overall implementation of the unit in an office environment would be better than it currently is.

 

With that said, we feel also that having the Cine5 running in the background as a basic music or gaming system is a great proposition. Due to its compact size and simple design, it just keeps things in perspective when listening.

 

To conclude, the Cine5 does everything it sets out to do with a decent standard of performance. It would have being great, though, if that performance could have been combined with a connection interface that more closely reflects where we are at with technology right now.
