Genius SW-T21 Speakers
Genius today gave an advance look at a new speaker set that expands on the touch input feature of the SP-T1200 The SW-T2.1 1800 (not yet pictured) lets user adjust sound settings without the perceived visual clutter of dials but significantly improves the audio quality with a six-inch subwoofer to separate the low-end frequencies. A DRD 3D spatialization effect expands the sound field.
The 2.1-channel audio system has a line-in connection as well as a headphone pass-through for private listening. Genius should make the 1800 available by Tuesday and will sell it at $179, a price that puts it into more direct competition with higher-end PC speakers from Logitech and Klipsch. [images coming soon]
