Hercules XPS510 5.1 Speaker System Review

Conclusion

 

Overall I was very impressed with the Hercules XPS510 speaker system. When I first looked at this speaker system I was not expecting very good sound at all due to its low price. However, upon further inspection of the unit I realised I was very wrong. The XPS510 provides top notch audio clarity, deep bass, strong vocal reproduction and excellent positional audio. For a recommended retail price of $AUD199 ($US89), you can not really go wrong if you purchase this system. Although I had a few minor quibbles, the pros definitely outweigh the cons and I highly doubt that you will find a better speaker system for such a low price.

 

- Pros

 

* Excellent value

 

* Good sound quality

 

* Ability to easily upgrade to Dolby Digital

 

* Detailed user manual

 

- Cons

 

* Inconvenient speaker controls placement

 

Rating - 9/10
