    ASUS announced the launch of the ASUS Cine5 PC speaker which provides accurate 5-channel surround sound in personalized spaces such as study rooms. With its all-in-one design, the Cine5 delivers realistic and dynamic surround sound to satisfy consummate gamers and personal entertainment users. To deliver exceptionally full sound from a compact form factor, ASUS drew on its expertise in high-performance audio cards during the development.

    The Cine5 is the first PC speaker in the world to offer leading surround sound presence with the new “Embracing Sound Theatre HD” technology. This patented technology leverages on a discrete 5-channel output to deliver full audio surround, which users can experience whenever they are directly in front of the speaker. In a First Player Shooter game, the Cine5 provides precise sound location that improves shooting accuracy and heightens gaming thrills. The Cine5 also revives 5-channel audio from any down-mixed 2-channel source—for a high-fidelity, multi-channel sound during PC gaming or movie sessions.

    Space-saving Design and Convenient Home Entertainment Setup
    By integrating an array of speaker drivers into a single bar, the Cine5 PC speaker helps users save space in their study rooms. Additionally, installation is simplified by eliminating the need to set up multiple satellite speakers—users just need to place the Cine5 PC speaker below the computer monitor. No positional adjustment is necessary to get the sweet spot for audio recreation.

    Refined Audio Performance
    Utilizing premium speaker drivers and a specially-designed bass reflex port, the Cine5 provides 15dB more bass than speakers of similar size, thus revolutionizing bass delivery in compact speakers—to add depth to games and movies. Also, its multi-driver configuration reduces individual driver load by 50%, resulting in better high-frequency responses for more brilliant sound.

    Dress Up PCs with Elegance
    The Cine5 PC speaker represents a modern form in PC speaker design. In a user setting, the three elements of a curved shape, black glossy finish, and its metal knob delivers a touch of elegance. It also blends in with most monitors, with its overall design featuring metal or rubber stands of different heights.

    They are branching off in too many directions lately. How about not forgeting that EX-loyal
    customers have many boards new and old that still need bios fixes. They have completely
    abandoned my old P45Q. MIIIF can use some work too.
    Don't get me wrong venturing out is good, but don't leave the people who supported your
    new interests left out in the cold.

    My 2 cents.

    I have 2 more cents.
    I found out the hard way about the Asus three year warranty. Does'nt matter when I bought my board/card they told me the warranty started the day it was manufactured. That
    ASUS is total B.S. I will stick too XFX or EVGA for a lifetime warranty.
    Thank you very F**king much Asus. You took all my money and I just gave my last couple pennies to TPU, so I could rant like a nutjob.

    Sorry guys, but I am pissed..........Nice looking speaker though :shadedshu

    I'm sure they'd be devastated to lose one customer when this idiotic contraption they're releasing will ensnare hundreds and thousands of idiots.

    Agreed!!! Just a pissed off Asus consumer.
    I am not a loyal "Fanboy" to any one company. But, I will say I have had numerous problems with other manufacturers, and to date BFG, EVGA, XFX, was a no questions asked RMA.
    I will live to rant another day, I think I have sufficiently ruined this posting for anyone actually interested in this speaker system, although that was not my intention.
    I have no knowledge of this unit, nor do I much care.

    That's okay, this sound bar is complete garbage from the get go. Anyone claiming that virtual 5.1 is realistic and good is [​IMG]
    I think Asus should be sued for false advertising, already. It's not 5.1 end of story. Of course, if you're dumb enough to buy it....
