Antec Rockus 2.1 Speakers Pros, Cons

20 Apr

Short version: Not bad, but the “3D” effect isn’t very compelling, and the lack of extra features makes the $200 price unpalatable.

Features:

150 watts (25/satellite, 100 in sub)
3.5mm, RCA, Optical inputs
“3Dsst” virtual surround sound
MSRP: $200

Pros:

Very clear sound
Plenty loud
Unique look

Cons:

Missing out on the midrange
Relatively small “sweet spot”
Virtual surround you can take or leave
No headphone output, aux/mic input on puck

Conclusion

Unfortunately, with great speakers like the Logitech Z623s electronic gadgets or classics like Klipsch’s Promedia 2.1s going for $50 less, I just can’t recommend these Antecs electronic gadgets. Looks like the longtime hardware maker still has a lot to learn about making a compelling speaker set.
