Introduction

 

Based out of the states, Corsair has been around for some time now producing all sorts of PC accessories and individual components. Over the years this has built them up as one of the big names when it comes to putting together high-end gaming outfits. Even for people not so savvy on the construction side of computing, Corsair RAM is about as well known as Nescafe Blend 43, or whatever that one was; you get the picture.

 

However, as stated by Corsair themselves, audio components provide their own set of hurdles when it comes to designing one that does indeed sound good. Largely there are not really the sort of on paper results that can be had with other PC components (such as how many frames are being generated). Audio specs require a slightly keener eye (or more suitably in this case, ear) in order to be made meaningful.

 

So inevitably, the endless grey zone of subjectivity is entered, which is a tricky one to be made a winner in even at the best of times, let alone when designing the first incarnation of a product from scratch. This is simply because it's terribly easy to read a graph and see where the money has gone, but peoples ears are all different and designing an audio product that sounds the same to everyone is quite a difficult proposition.
