VideoLogic Systems - a division of Imagination Technologies - announces its ZXR-500 5.1 channel surround sound speaker system. The stylish silver ZXR-500 provides outstanding quality audio for surround sound games and movies for just £79.99 (inc. VAT UK).

High Quality System Delivers 65W RMS Power for Surround Sound Games and Movies

The perfect partner for any 5.1 channel soundcard, ZXR-500 will transform any PC into a thundering home cinema and surround sound gaming system. The ZXR-500 is a powerful 5.1 channel speaker system, engineered to provide all the thrills of surround sound audio, whether it is enhancing the earth-trembling sound effects in movies, blasting out gut-wrenching explosions in the latest games or pumping out stomping music. Using years of professional audio experience, gained through development of VideoLogic's award winning DigiTheatre and Sirocco ranges, this compact powerhouse has been engineered to outperform systems costing twice as much. With five powerful discrete satellite speakers and a stylish subwoofer with integrated 5.1 power amplifier, ZXR-500 delivers serious sound.

ZXR-500 includes dual flared subwoofer bass ports and a tuned amplifier for precise imaging. Individual volume controls and sturdy speaker stands ensure that its impressive 65W of power is delivered where and how the user wants it. The comprehensive package includes everything needed to get up and running quickly with connecting cables, satellite speaker stands and a clear, concise user guide.

Says Kevin Dale, president, VideoLogic: "This 5.1 channel speaker system with its powerful dual-ported subwoofer provides VideoLogic quality at a price that makes outstanding six-channel game and movie audio accessible to everyone. ZXR-500 is the ideal companion to any 6-channel soundcard, DVD or video player."

Says Jag Mann, Product Manager, Multivision: "ZXR-500 sets a new standard for six-channel PC speaker systems and is the speaker package of choice for Multivision systems. There is nothing else on the market today that offers such great value and quality."

The ZXR-500's powerful 25W RMS subwoofer features two tuned bass ports ensuring distortion-free bass. The integrated amplifier has individual front panel volume controls and built-in low-noise power supply.

Separate volume controls enable complete control of front, rear, centre and subwoofer speakers for a balanced 'natural' sound. Magnetically shielded speakers prevent interference with PCs and other electronic equipment.

ZXR-500's professional styling provides a stunning mix of form and function with a stylish matt silver finish chosen to complement PC, video or hi-fi kit and looks good in any room.

The system is Dolby Digital, DTS and Pro Logic compatible with six separate phono inputs and a carefully tuned amplifier to take full advantage of the sound from a 5.1 enabled sound card or decoder. Increasing numbers of games, DVD movies and music are recorded using these surround sound audio technologies.

ZXR-500 is fast and easy to set up with plug-and-play speaker wiring (3m fronts and centre, 8m rears), three dual phono to 3.5mm cables for PC connection, clearly labelled connectors and clear, concise instructions. Five satellite speaker stands are included to provide stable speaker positioning.
