Antec are renowned among enthusiast circles for creating some of the finest computer cases and power supplies on the market. Like others in todays climate they are expanding into new territories and have turned their attention to speakers. This isn't a half hearted attempt however, with a new subsidiary entitled ‘SoundScience'.
The Californian based company are proud to announce that this new brand of speakers is the result of “two years of evolving prototypes, constant fine-tuning, and hundreds of hours listening” and the end result is what we are testing today – the Soundscience Rockus 3D. Unlike many other designs, Antec aren't using an OEM, these are developed and created in house.
Priced at £170 inc vat, they are certainly targeting enthusiasts with a higher level of disposable income. This also means however that we will be much more demanding when we come to test them later in the review.
