Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. continues to offer better audio solutions for laptop computers with the release of the S-MM201 USB-powered computer speakers. The speakers deliver better performance and a much fuller sound experience than built-in laptop speakers, all from a compact package that is easily transportable and can be quickly connected via USB and without the need for AC power. The S-MM201 offers a built-in audio DAC and bass-reflex enclosure designed to enhance bass frequencies. "The integrated speakers in most laptop computers are often too small to properly provide the full sound experience and volume people desire when listening to music, videos or movies on their computers," said Chris Walker, director AV marketing and product planning for the Home Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. "With the S-MM201, you can have an enhanced listening experience virtually anywhere because it can deliver more audio output, especially in the lower and mid frequencies, and all without the need to plug them into the wall for power." Shaped like small cubes with angled tops, the S-MM201 features 45 mm full range drivers with control buttons for volume up, volume down and mute. The model utilizes a bass-reflex enclosure with a small port in front for increased bass reproduction. For added cosmetic appeal, the speakers are designed with see-through bottom casings and blue LED lights that illuminate when in use. The speakers are connected and powered via an included USB cable and uses built-in audio DACs to provide great sound quality. The speakers stand at 4 inches tall and weigh only 23 ounces for easy transportability. The S-MM201 computer speakers are available in black or white for a suggested retail price of $59.95.
