Hercules XPS 5170

 

This is a snip at just under £60, making it a sound choice for those on a limited budget. This rig is a good starter buy if you are keen to replace the boggo bins that came with your PC as it produces a respectable total power output of 70W

Good price, Decent looking

Lacking power and finesse

A solid, if uninspiring, option for those on a budget

Hercules XPS 5.170

 

50 for a full 5.1 system? Surely there must be a catch. But there doesn't seem to be, as The XPS 5.170 system puts out a surprisingly crisp sound for a budget speaker set.

Able to get past 3GHz, Strongly future-proofed, Great price, Decent sound

If you consider the price, you can't have any real complaints

Hercules' XPS 5.1 70 has a silvery plastic finish that looks a little tacky.

Hercules XPS 5.1 70 Slim Multimedia Speaker System

 

Sounds great, easy to set up, When plugged in to a computer it works amazingly

Cables could be longer (could buy cables to extend them) Get a little feedback from mobile phones

Hercules XPS 5.1 70 Slim Multimedia Speaker System

 

Easy to set up, Amazing sound quality, Good value for money

Little to no bad points, Quality on the virtual surround isn't great however I stick to the true surround sound to allow the system to decide whether it's 2.1(Maybe 3.1) or 5.1

simple and as effective as expensive rivals!

 

price is great, sound is great, what more do you want. especially good with music with bands as it separates all the instrumentals brilliantly. bass response is as much bass as you need at home!

Product Specifications

This 5.1 kit is based on the popular XPS 2.140 stereo model. Elegant, with simple lines, the speakers' good looks have already proved a big hit with users. The XPS 5.170 is not just a design, however - it's also a set of performance technologies. Hercules has responded to the needs of multimedia users increasingly demanding in terms of audio quality, by utilizing HAT technology, a process used in Hi-Fi systems. Each of the five magnetically-shielded satellites features aluminum in the satellite speaker domes and the result is enhanced audio reproduction, with clear and enveloping sound. The size of the drivers in each of the satellites is larger than normal for improved distribution of medium and treble frequencies and delivery of 70 Watts RMS (140 Watts peak) power. Combined with a powerful 25-Watt subwoofer, the kit draws users right into the heart of movies and games.
