I don't get it, why speakers in the case when you can have them stereo alongside the monitor or around you in a multi-channel setup?

Good point, if these speakers aren't properly magnetic-shielded, it could interfere with other system components.

I don't think extra vibrations would be good either. Interested to see how they're built on the inside.

Anyone wanna get 5 of them and try out a 5.0 system?

It's not about vibrations, it's about the magnetic interference of the speakers, yeah vibrations too.

Of course. I understand. But I doubt they are powerful enough to create anything that should be considered harmful. They are only tiny 1.5w speakers. My MP4 player has 1.5w speakers right above the HDD and electronics. Those speakers might be enough though to create some vibrations which you'd like to avoid, even small ones. But still, I don't think its powerful enough to do any damage.

True, but its probably better sounding than my 2.1 dell speakers :laugh: Hell.. This 19.99 logitech headset is better...

I saw a set up like this on eBay last year actually... And on TigerDirect too.

Think back 10 years... to the iMac. ;) They had 2 of these speakers built in, on either side of the hard drive and CDDVD ROM. If Apple can slap them in to a fruity computer, why can't we toss them into our PCs? :cool:

how about the new imacs and laptops? great concept... needs a audio jack for the ability to hook headphones etc though.

Be great for an m-atx case.
Too bad I already filled both slots. Wish it was 3.25.

The new Macs are nice too.. but I still think Apple 'done fell and bumped their head' with the price they are charging for a computer.

As to the speakers... It's be cool if they had a 'door' that opened to give you 2 or 4 more speakers, lol.

Honestly there ARE times when I drag my tower somewhere and sit there with no sound, bored off my ass... At those times, these would save my life, lol.

this is kinda cool, though I would wonder about vibrations. im sure they took into account any interferences.

This is a useless gimmick. Anyone wanting good audio quality will hate these things. Plus they will take power from your PSU, a good set of 2.1 or 5.1 speakers with it's own power supply will sound way better. I think this is an innovative, but pointless invention. Not for me.

This is great for old people or people that know little about a pc and want a cheap built budget pc, it saves on wires unless you find a monitor with built in speakers. Other than that it is a joke. Sound imaging has to be horrible unless your pc is sitting in between your ears!

I'm thinking of using three or more of them in my old Antec 900 case, for a jukebox or something.

I was just recently looking at monitors, and this one deffinitely has the best speakers.

As far as the antec goes, here's the plan, 2 of those scythe speakers I could use for mids, while I mutate another to accept some quality tweeters for 3 bays, and one 8" sub for 3 other bays, plus a dvd and card reader. I would think a built-in LCD screen on top is a must too. This is going to take some time...
