Imagine fighting alien scum in Halo while the battle sounds blare in surround sound. Xbox 360 gamers don't have to imagine any more.
between this and any other Surround system out there...that it looks like the 360? Is there any functionality that comes with the price?
Is a great set of wireless headphones that I can also use on Live.
No powered receiver?? I paid less for my yamaha system which comes with a receiver and 700 watts of power that rocks the house.
Same, this is just a stunt to get xbox people to go surround while charging much more than is needed. I paid about the same $500 for my receiver with some really nice Infinity speakers (the sub is absolute bliss), and I doubt this system could even compare when you turn it up above 0 db (I mostly have it in the -negative- 15-20 range, but only because it's too loud if anyone else is around). I never thought too highly of pioneer speakers myself- if you need surround-in-a-box, buy an Onkyo system, I've heard they're the best all-in-one you can buy for cheap.
Yah systems like this are bought by people who aren't tech. savy or atleast smart enough to shop around online. Like upper middle class suburban kids who don't have a clue but do have a wad of cash.
What I did was get a 5.1 logitech for 50 bucks for my PC and get a 5 dollar AV cable adapter to 5.1. Just switch back and forth.
compared to alot of the systems you can buy. but i care more for quality than looks. i have 2 systems (since i have 2 360's). one is a bose 5.1 surround that i got from my brother. thats a monster of a system for only 600W that it pulls out. then i have kinda my own creation i bought everything seperate for this one. its a phillips receiver (dont ask what model) with 7.1 speaker set up. 850W of insane sound. i use it mostly for movie becuase game just get way to loud on that phillips. i like the bose acoustics for gaming especially their quiet comfort 2 head[hones for late night gaming so you dont wake any one.
i agree with everyone else this is just to look good and make dumb ppl look retarted. they step up if they buy this.
