While we like to think everyone is sitting in front of huge flat panel displays listening to massive home theater speakers, the reality is that most of us spend the majority of our time in front of computer displays, even for gaming and movie-watching. ASUS has just come out with what they claim is the world's most compact five-channel speaker, the Cine5.
The 28-watt compact soundbar has five discrete channels to give a surround feel and in gaming, gives more precise imaging to help improve target location. The Cine5 will create a surround image even from a stereo source.
No word yet on US pricing or availability. Why bother with your computer's built-in speaker or even external stereo computer speakers when you can add a clutter-free soundbar that also adds surround sound?
