Genius Introduces GX Gaming SW-G5.1 3500 Surround Speaker System

Genius today is pleased to announce that the first GX Gaming Series 5.1 surround sound speaker system is now available in USA – the SW-G5.1 3500.

Raising the GX Gaming Series to a new sonic level, this 80 watt RMS speaker system includes a 6.5-inch subwoofer providing 30 watts of heart-thumping bass, five 10 watt satellite speakers for positional audio, and a remote control for convenient volume and bass adjustment. With the hook design, the satellite speakers of the SW-G5.1 3500 can be hung on walls, helping to maximize the surround sound experience.

The 5.1 surround sound setup of the SW-G5.1 3500 gives gamers an advantage in first person shooter games by allowing them to pinpoint enemy locations by sound alone. Gaming on regular stereo speakers only allows users to discern between right and left. The 5.1 sound enables gamers to listen to opponents' footsteps from all surrounding directions.

The audio from the 3-inch satellite speakers of SW-G5.1 3500 complement the deep, rich bass of the subwoofer pounding out frequencies as low as 50Hz. Users can adjust sound and bass from the control panel on the subwoofer as well as the remote control. Control options also include a STANDBY and an AUX/5.1 CH switch function, which enables users to flip between gaming and music listening.

On the front of the subwoofer above the LED indicator there is a headphone and microphone jack for private listening and chatting while gaming, as well as offering a quick way to connect MP3 players and smartphones to the speaker system. The rear of the subwoofer includes more connections, increasing the flexibility of the SW-G5.1 3500. On the back there are three RCA jacks with 5.1 CH color coding as well as an additional AUX 3.5mm input.

Offering booming bass, crisp middle to high range sound, and the flexibility to connect to gaming, music, and other entertainment devices, the SW-G5.1 3500 surround sound speaker system epitomizes the high-quality that the GX Gaming Series represents in a louder more versatile design.

Genius SW-G5.1 3500, is now available in the US and Canada for the suggested retail price of $149.99.

$150 for junk. 30 whole watts of heart thumping bass! Give me a break. My 12" dayton sub produces more bass when it's turned off, let alone actual quality bass, not a boot kicking plastic sound.

Some manufacturer needs to make real quality speakers. Stop focusing on looks and size, and give people something good. Sub-par monitors (still light years better than computer speakers) and a 10" or 12" sub can be bought for ~$200, and blow any computer speaker system out of the water, sound quality wise and overall power/bass wise.

You mean like the Swan M20W which can be had for about the same price as this?

Apples and oranges.

I agree the value is poor but you can't compare computer speakers with home theatre equipment.

Exactly, but the availability isn't there, at least not in the USA.

I'm not comparing them with home theater equipment. Monitors serve many purposes, especially the cheaper ones like AV-40's (I know they aren't TRUE high grade monitors, you'd be spending $250+), which are used mainly for computer systems and music setups, not home theater.

You're suggesting a 12" subwoofer fed with 150 watts RMS (alone) is even remotely typical for a computer speaker setup?
