Quote: 'surround-sound set-ups are, for the most part, completely pointless.'I can see where you're coming from - I don't play DVDs on my PC, I've got a TV setup for that. However, wouldn't you agree that surround setups are useful for games? I've had a 4 channel setup for years and I've found it to be quite advantageous under certain circumstances. Left 4 Dead is a good example; I can accurately pinpoint boss infected from the unique sounds they make. I'll freely admit that positioning 2 extra speakers behind you isn't an option for many people. Most rooms aren't the right shape for that to be practical. But if you can, why wouldn't you? I'd happily pay a premium for a really decent >=4 channel system along these lines.
'surround-sound set-ups are, for the most part, completely pointless.' Maybe for end users but for pro gamers 2.1 setups are completely pointless. I would love to buy this speaker system only if it came in 5.1 setup.
I would agree here.The system sounds epic (no pun intended but oh dear non the less) but I think anyone even remotely into games couldn't substitute the edge that 5.1 gives you. Have to say given razers background its surprising that they have only done this in a 2,1 system.
