Even though originally dedicated in computer memory and power supply units, Corsair is no stranger to the audio scene as the company already released the gaming orientated HS-1 headset as well (review here)
So before we begin let's have a quick chat about what Corsair is offering you at roughly 180~190 EUR. The product is called the Corsair Gaming Audio SP2500, it is a 2.1 kit (two speakers and one Sub-Woofer) with a Speaker RMS of 232 Watt of of continuous power thanks to six class D amplifiers, the set pairing two bi-amplified satellites with 3-inch drivers and 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters. Alongside it you need to place a 8-inch subwoofer in your room..
1-inch silk dome tweeter; 3-inch midrange paper cone
16 watts to each tweeter; 40 watts to each midrange; 120 watts to the subwoofer
Two 1/8-inch and RCA for analog stereo
ATX PSU sockets for speakers;1/8-inch on remote for headphones
Included in the kit is a a wired remote control which functions as DSP which has some pretty nifty features as it holds a 1.8-inch TFT-LCD color status display. The menu has multi-lingual user interface which we'll take a closer look at in this review of course.
The initial price tag of roughly 250 USD made this kit as expensive as say a Klipsch or Bose 2.1 speaker system, but since we are a few months away from launch prices certainly have dropped quite a bit. You can spot them for 199 USD / 178 EUR. This black colored kit which comes with a 2 year carry in warranty.
