Notebooks/netbooks are not known for having the best audio capabilities. One solution to that is to add on a set of external speakers which is not always feasible for users on the go. OCC checks out a new product that aims to solve that issue: Diamond XSTU21 Sound Tube & MSP100B Mini Rockers Mobile Speakers - http://www.overclock...xstu21_msp100b/

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB
Corsair TX750W / Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 / SilverStone TJ05 / Scythe Zipang 140mm CPU Cooler / ASUS VH202T-P 20" widescreen monitor (x2) / XP Pro SP 3

Those videos do seem to have me sold you know ... I saw these at CES and never believed they would be any good, but it looks like I'm wrong again. Good effort ajmatson :)

I was given a set at CES as a gift and man do they pack a punch. D3 and I got alot of use out of them at CES compared to my laptop speakers these are in another league.

What I really like about them is they are so small and you can use one speaker only if need be. Anyone looking for a small set of speakers this is a set to check out for sure.

Nice review Alan! How hot did that tube get while in use?

They were good speakers... like Dave said, we put them to good use at CES. Though, they felt a bit cheap to me... and what ever you do, do not "push in" on the center of the grill... the only thing that will happen, is the grill breaks. :music: :smack:
