Antec Rockus 3D SoundScience 2.1 Speaker System Review

Once again, the snow has returned. This time it isn't the light fluffy kind, either, this is that slushy heavy mix. It's what we call the Chiropractor's dream. Each shovel full feels like a ton of bricks and there is a nice thick layer of ice underneath. Definitely not the kind of snow that anyone needs to be outside driving around in. My roommate ended up putting her car into a ditch right around the corner from our house. No, she wasn't texting, I swear.

 

At times like this, people stay in, kick on the heat, and put on a movie, but a movie cannot be fully experienced without a good home theater setup. Most people run out and look for an expensive high definition television and expensive sound setup. I know quite a few people that overpay just because, instead of looking for quality, they look at a price tag and automatically think it's the best. Well, that or the salesman does their job earning a commission rather than actually helping a customer make the best decision. Not everyone needs a fancy 5.1 surround setup. I had one for years in a tiny apartment and, in all honesty, my front speakers and sub had more of a workout then the surround satellites. Now, in the market, we are seeing better quality out of 2.1 setups and sound bars.

 

The Antec Rockus 3D SoundScience 2.1 Speaker System is Antec's entry product into the sound market. The Rockus 2.1 Speaker System offers out-of-the-box professional quality sound. The Rockus contains two 25 Watt satellite speakers constructed out of anodized aluminum that offer clear highs and mids. There is a 100 Watt active subwoofer with a passive radiator that creates an extended low frequency response. Total output for the Ruckus is 150 Watts. SoundScience has also added 3Dsst™. This technology uses digital sound processing algorithms to simulate a surround sound environment. Inputs include 3.5mm, RCA, and optical (TOSLINK).
