Axiom Ships Audiobyte Luxury Computer Speakers

Home theater company Axiom is now shipping the Audiobyte, what the company describes as the "first" luxury speaker system designed for computers. At the core of the setup are two satellites, encased either in synthetic materials or real wood; each is capable of producing a massive 55W of power, and can handle frequencies between 100Hz and 20kHz. Unlike most computer setups, the Audiobyte's amplifier is kept separate, and includes a USB port for playing and charging iPods. Basic black, white, silver and charcoal Audiobyte kits cost $349; synthetic cherry and walnut kits cost $399, while real wood models cost $559. To boost the low-end response, shoppers can buy an optional passive subwoofer for $179, which handles frequencies between 25 and 150Hz. An external volume control knob is also said to be in production.

I think I'll stick with the true home theatre route for my own sound :) But really at those prices for computer speakers... I start thinking the old Logitech 5500 had more bang for the buck. :banghead:

Truly. The price on speaker systems these days are ridiculous. Bose is the worst. Sure, its sound fantastic, but man, they really overcharge for their stuff.
