VideoLogic ZXR-550 Surround Sound Speaker System

London, UK: PURE Digital – a division of Imagination Technologies – announces its ZXR-550 5.1 channel surround sound speaker system. The stylish silver ZXR-550 provides outstanding quality audio for surround sound games and movies for just £79.99 (inc. VAT UK).

The perfect partner for any 6-channel soundcard, ZXR-550 is a powerful 5.1 channel speaker system, directly descended from the outstanding ZXR-500, favoured by audio enthusiasts and system builders worldwide. The ZXR-550 provides improved usability and enhanced surround sound audio, whether bringing DVD movies to life, blasting out the latest games or immersing the listener in music. Using years of professional audio experience, gained through the development of PURE's award winning DigiTheatre, Sirocco and LiFE 4/10 ranges, this compact powerhouse has been engineered to outperform systems costing twice as much.

ZXR-550 features dual flared subwoofer bass ports, improved amplifier electronics and tuned satellite speakers, giving it a flatter, more accurate response for class-leading musical fidelity. A master volume control together with individual controls for centre, rear and sub ensure that its impressive 65W of power is delivered where and how you want it. With five powerful discrete satellite speakers and a 25W RMS subwoofer, ZXR-550 pumps out some serious sound.

The comprehensive package includes everything you need to get up and running quickly with connecting cables, detachable speaker stands for all satellites, optional wall-mounting brackets for rear satellites and a clear, concise user guide. Just connect up to your 6-channel soundcard or DVD player and immerse yourself in sound.

From the same stable as the acclaimed DigiTheatre, Sirocco and LiFE 4/10 systems, ZXR-550 is based on the multi award-winning ZXR-500 – winner of PCW's Highly Commended Award and PC Format's Buy It! Award. Like its predecessor it offers a mixture of compact style and class-leading audio performance, further enhanced by improved amplifier electronics and tuned satellites for a flatter, more accurate response.

Says Kevin Dale, president, PURE Digital: "This 5.1 channel speaker system with its powerful dual-ported subwoofer provides high quality at a price that makes outstanding six-channel game and movie audio accessible to everyone. ZXR-500 has taken this market segment by storm simply because it is the best the money can buy. ZXR-550 is set to continue that success."

ZXR-550's powerful 25W RMS subwoofer features two tuned bass ports ensuring distortion-free bass. Its integrated amplifier has individual front panel volume controls and a built-in low-noise power supply.
