Pioneer expands its speaker offerings into the computer market with the launch of two multi-media computer speaker systems.
Pioneer's new 2.0- and 2.1-channel computer speaker systems are designed for
music fans who want a higher level audio experience from their computer. The new
S-MM301 delivers big sound from its triple coil drivers and features a compact
design, while the S-MM751RU speakers provide a power upgrade and strong bass
performance with a dedicated subwoofer.
USB-powered speakers deliver big sound with better fidelity and more volume than
typical laptop speakers, all from a compact package that can be transported
along with a laptop.
The S-MM301 speakers are powered through the USB cable, eliminating the need for
a bulky, separate AC adapter. The speakers also feature metal grills to help
protect the drivers from damage during travel. Built-in audio controls include
volume up and down button and mute button.
Pioneer's new S-MM751RU 2.1-Channel Computer Speaker System integrates satellite
speakers and subwoofer enclosure.
Small and compact, Pioneer utilizes a technology called MAXX Bass Dynamic Sound
with DSP Bass Enhancement to increase dynamic range. The system is rated to
handle a total of 40 watts (20 watt subwoofer; 10 watts for each satellite).
The S-MM751RU enables users to control the audio through a hockey puck-shaped
controller that features a volume knob and playback controls
(play/pause/rewind/forward). The control puck also includes an SD Card slot
(WMA/MP3), USB port (WMA/MP3) and line-in audio input so consumers can enjoy
their music from other sources without having to turn on the computer.
The Pioneer S-MM301 and S-MM751RU are now available at a minimum advertised
price of $49 and $129 respectively.
